“Difficulties strengthen the mind,
as labor does the body.”
“Happiness is not the absence of problems;
it’s the ability to deal with them.”
“Being challenged in life is inevitable,
being defeated is optional.”
“You have power over your mind
not outside events.
and you will find strength.”
“Man often becomes what he believes himself to be.
If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing,
it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it.
On the contrary,
if I have the belief that I can do it,
I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it
even if I may not have it at the beginning.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
“There are no shortcuts to any place worth going.”
“The three great essentials to achieve anything worthwhile are,
first, hard work;
third, common sense.”
“The difference between ordinary and extraordinary
is that little extra.”
Never focus your attention on what the world has to say about you.
Rather turn your focus inside
and listen to what your inner voice has to say to you.”
Realize your abilities.
Be sincere to nobody else,
Keep walking on the path of bravery.
Keep walking on the path of your passion.
and do not stop until you reach your goal.”
“There’s not a chance we’ll reach our full potential
until we stop blaming each other
and start practicing personal accountability.”
“The power behind taking responsibility for your actions
lies in putting an end to negative thought patterns.
You no longer dwell on what went wrong
or focus on whom you are going to blame.
You don’t waste time building roadblocks to your success.
you are set free
and can now focus on succeeding.”
“The final forming of a person’s character
lies in their own hands.”
“Your greatest responsibility in your life is
to be the best version of yourself.
When you feel for what the soul believes
that is who you become.”
Find the courage to dream lofty dreams
of what you wish to attain.
Dream big and wide.
Dreaming is healthy for our imagination
to explore the unknown.
Before our goals can materialize,
a dream must be set in motion,
it must feed our soul (subconscious)
a belief that exists in the unknown future.”
“All who have accomplished great things
have had a great aim,
have fixed their gaze on a goal which was high,
one which sometimes seemed impossible.”
“Our goals can only be reached
through a vehicle of a plan,
in which we must fervently believe,
and upon which we must vigorously act.
There is no other route to success.”
“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes.
Don’t resist them;
that only creates sorrow.
Let reality be reality.
Let things flow naturally forward
in whatever way they like.”
“Some periods of our growth are so confusing
that we don’t even recognize that growth is happening.
We may feel hostile or angry or weepy and hysterical,
or we may feel depressed.
It would never occur to us,
unless we stumbled on a book or a person who explained to us,
that we were in fact in the process of change,
of actually becoming larger,
spiritually, than we were before.
Whenever we grow,
we tend to feel it,
as a young seed must feel the weight
and inertia of the earth
as it seeks to break out of its shell
on its way to becoming a plant.
Often the feeling is anything but pleasant.
But what is most unpleasant
is the not knowing what is happening.
Those long periods when something inside ourselves seems to be waiting,
holding its breath,
unsure about what the next step should be,
eventually become the periods we wait for,
for it is in those periods
that we realize that we are being prepared for the next phase of our life
and that, in all probability,
a new level of the personality is about to be revealed.”
