StePs to Happiness tHAt EVeryBody knows

I've read this poem many times before. It's really fabolous, full of wise advices and meaningful. Unfortunately that i didn't know who was the author of this wise poem. But no matter who was the writer of this marvelous poetry, I just sincerely hope by write it down here, many people will find "blessing" in it :)

Steps To Happiness that Everybody Knows

Everybody knows that:
you can't be all things to all people
you can't do all things at once
you can't do all things equally well
you can't do all things better than everyone else
your humanity is showing just like everyone else's

you have to find out who you are and be that
you have to decide what comes first and do that
you have to discover your strengths and use them
you have to learn not to compete with others because no one else is in the contest of "being you"

          you'll have learned to accept your own uniqueness
          you'll have learned to set priorities and make decisions
          you'll have learned to live with your limitations
          you'll have learned to give yourself the respect that is due
          And you'll be a most vital mortal

Dare to Believe:
That you're a wonderful, unique person
that you're a once-in-all-history event
That it's more than a right, it's your duty to be who you are
that life is not a problem to solve, but a gift to cherish
And you'll be able to stay one up on what used to get you down
