QUOTATION & POSTER: I Got Nothing I Asked For

I asked for STRENGTH – and I got difficulties to make me tough.
I asked for COURAGE – and I got risks and hazards to make me brave.
I asked for LOVE – and I discovered the pleasure of service.
I asked for FAVORS – and I found opportunities to earn my own way.
I asked for WEALTH – and I got good friends and family.
I asked for WISDOM – and I received challenges and experiences.
I asked for SUCCESS – and I found a way to use my failures as stepping stones.
I RECEIVED NOTHING I WANTED, BUT EVERYTHING I NEEDED.
–Michael Josephson
(adapted from a traditional poem of unknown origin)
