The Cardinal Criteria

Creation of prosperity
Can’t take the easy way.

When laughter lacks sincerity
It often leads astray.

An overall euphoria
Can’t be upheld at once.

The cardinal criteria
Is patience given chance.

The real pursuit of happiness
Lies not on its own path.

Don’t chase direct attractiveness.
Find wisdom first, instead.

Jerry Corstens is a visionary dreamer with a blind passion for self-reflection and contemplating life, a self-proclaimed philosopher with poetic ambitions. He's serious about helping people with the insights he gathered, but playful in the way he communicates his wisdom. It made him leave a career as environmental engineer behind, in favor of becoming a personal development coach and thought-provoking writer.
