I Believe in You.
You don’t have to be the strongest, the fastest, or the smartest to achieve your goals; you just have to genuinely believe in yourself. Success is a state of mind, and though it may be glittered with tangible evidence and rewards, it ultimately starts and ends within you. You are strong, you are fast, and you are smart. You are capable of achieving anything that you set your mind to. I believe in you. Do you?
We all have goals and dreams. Say them aloud to yourself; if they don’t sound slightly impossible then they aren’t set high enough. Today step out of your comfort zone, get off of the metaphorical treadmill of monotony and misguided contentment and step onto the road of success. And if you’re scared then say you’re scared, it’s completely natural; but understand that fear is an illusion and it only exist in your mind, and only you have the power to tear down the mental prison that you have created. Today start chipping away at those walls and bars. Procrastination and fear are the enemies of success; the war is lifelong, but the battles are daily.
One Day at a Time.
One day at a time, that is the fastest and surest way to reach your goals and dreams. Today presents you an opportunity that you have never been offered before, and yes, today may look similar to yesterday, but it is not the same. Today has never met you , it doesn’t care about what you did or didn’t do yesterday or what you’re going to do tomorrow. Today doesn’t care about your reputation, your past successes and failures or your aspirations and fears ; today will judge you simply on your actions of today. Let go of the past and do not worry about the future, today just focus on today.
A Moment of Clarity.
Today I want you to take a moment to think back on all of your past successes ; the promotion you received, the weight loss goal you hit, the retirement savings milestone that you reached. Relive those moments of joy for a second, feel that absolute state of euphoria that you were in. Now I want you to do the exact same thing with your past failures; relive those moments of frustration and pain. Ask yourself a simple question, which one felt better? You are the only one who can determine your success, and you are the only one who can determine your failure .
The successes and failures of yesterday are gone, today is a new day.
The tragedy of life is not that it ends so soon, but that we wait so long to begin it.
To be a true leader, understand it’s challenges. The challenge of leadership is to be strong, but not rude; be kind, but not weak; be bold, but not bully; be thoughtful, but not lazy; be humble, but not timid; be proud, but not arrogant; have humor, but without folly.
Your whole life is the process. If you don’t start to enjoy life’s journey and continue to wait for happiness to one day come once you achieve what you think will make you happy, your blissful moments will be short-lived at best. Even if the outcome doesn’t turn out to be what you originally desired, look at it as an opportunity to learn and grow, and see it as a valuable lesson to bring success to you even faster next time, now that you are aware of what not to do. Every setback holds the potential to be an instant springboard to massive progress, unless you choose for it not to be.
Your emotions are always in your control. You can change your emotion immediately, by thinking of something joyful, or singing a song, or remembering a happy experience.
Do something out of the ordinary, it not only creates a memory, it sets a standard.
The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers.
Victory is not the property of brilliants.... It is the crown for those who bow themselves in front of hard work and confidence.
You should build your personal brand by being visible, different and consistent. Today, fewer and fewer of us are working for a single company. Most of us have multiple roles and are constantly seeking out more and more.
In order to be a strong contender for new roles, you need to become the CEO of yourself. This means crafting your own brand and making sure you stand out among your competitors.
Even though it may seem that you are a victim of your situation, by changing how you think, you can instead assume personal accountability for your life. This new perspective not only helps you realize what you really want and where your problems lie but also helps you achieve your goals through a four-step path: seeing it, owning it, solving it and doing it.
Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.
Don't just follow your dreams, chase them!
Don't just follow your dreams, chase them!
If it's a good idea, just go ahead and do it. It is sometimes so much easier to apologize than it is to get permission 😊
Excellence/Perfection is not a destination; it is a continuous journey that never ends.
You were born with the ability to change someone's life - don't ever waste it.
Change your perspective. Rather than trying to become a man of success, try to become a man of value.
Tranquility is a Choice. So is Anxiety. The entire world around us may be in Turmoil. But if we want to be Peaceful within, WE CAN.
Instead of complaining about your circumstances, get busy and create some new ones.
This your life, your one and only life, so take excellence very personally.
We must have the courage to bet on our ideas, to take the calculated risk, and to act. Everyday living requires courage if life is to be effective and bring happiness.
Always keep your People and Money equation crystal clear. LOVE people. USE money. Never reverse this equation.
Impossible is not a fact, it's an opinion.
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.
Once you choose hope, anything's possible.
Your value doesn't decrease based on someone's inability to see your worth. So keep striving to be better each day. You will.
ake charge of your life and your future. Always remember that if you are doing a job that someone can tell you how to do - then be sure that one can always find someone cheaper to do it. That is why you need to have an EDGE - that something extra that defines you as an individual.
The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those who watch them without doing anything. So wake up. Let go of your passivity and make a difference.
The Choice is yours.
The successes and failures of yesterday are gone, today is a new day. Today you are presented with another opportunity, another choice, and another chance to achieve greatness. Will you take advantage of it, or will you squander it to the waste of procrastination, fear, and negativity? Time, energy, and focus; these are the resources at your disposal each and every day. You are the only one who can determine your success, and you are the only one who can determine your failure. The choice is yours.
Quit or Conquer.
You will fail, and when you do its imperative that you not hope for things to get easier , but instead harness a desire for you to be better. The goals that you set will not inch their way towards you, you must push forward and attack them through the means of determination. With every failure comes an option, quit or conquer. Today you will conquer, and because you have consciously made this decision today you are stronger, and better than you were yesterday.
Your leadership style is the culmination of your communicative ability and your capacity for encouragement. It is far better to LEAD the people on your team, than simply MANAGE tasks, if you desire a strong, loyal, capable team.
Every end has a start, every start has a decision, every decision has a reason, and every reason has a meaning. And the best part? Every event in life is just an event. You assign a meaning to it. So how you actually lead your life and your successes actually depend on your thoughts.
Having a rough day? Place your hand over your heart. Feel that? That's called purpose. You're alive for a reason. Don't give up.
When you choose to forgive those who have hurt you, you take away their power.
Good things come to those who believe, better things come to those who are patient, and the best things come to those who don't give up.
Eliminate Excuses –Create Solutions.
Life isn’t fair, but time is the ultimate equalizer; we all get the same 24 hours each day. Today let’s eliminate the excuses and create solutions. If you really want something now is the time to go and get it. You are the only one who can determine your success, and you are the only one who can determine your failure. Thoughts are free, talk is cheap, and action is expensive; what’s your worth?
Don’t have long term grudges in this short term life. It’s not worth it. Be happy and spread happiness. It’s worth it.
Tenderness and kindness are not signs of weakness and despair, but manifestations of strength and resolutions.
We all at certain times in our lives find ourselves broken. True strength is found in picking up the pieces.
Crying doesn't always mean you're weak, it just means you've been strong for far too long.
Whatever you're facing today, keep going. Keep moving. Keep hoping. Keep pressing on. There is victory on the other side.
The turning point in the process of growing up is when you discover the core of strength within you that survives all hurt.
TODAY will never come again. Be a blessing. Be a friend. Encourage someone. Take time to care. Let your words heal, and not wound.
Turn Failure into Fuel.
You will fail, and when you do its imperative that you not hope for things to get easier, but instead harness a desire for you to be better. Turn that failure into fuel, let it be the force that propels you forward towards your goals. The road to success is full of pit stops, pitfalls, and self-pity; my advice is simply don’t stop!
The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will.
There is no tomorrow and there was no yesterday; if you truly want to accomplish your goals you must engulf yourself in today. Tear down your mental barriers, push through your physical limits, and allow your ambitions to power you to a state of complete commitment. At the end of the day let there be no regrets, only a desire to do more tomorrow than you did today.
If you treat a man as he is, he will stay as he is. If you treat him as he ought to be, he will become the bigger and better man. I think that's the best way to groom young minds too.
Strength doesn’t come from what you can do, it comes from overcoming what you once couldn’t.
I truly believe the power of positivity is fueled by purpose and love. If you share your purpose and love people unconditionally, your positivity will definitely soar!
Acknowledge Your Vulnerability.
There will be a moment today where you feel weak, when the temptation of procrastination seems irresistible, where the urge to stop and rest appears too enticing. You must acknowledge this moment, do not deny that it exists, you must own it; transform this vulnerability into a strength through action. Draw your energy from your past failures, let them heal your fatigue, allow them to fuel your ambitions; failure is the ultimate motivator. In this exact moment of doubt you must harness that feeling of failure and vow to yourself that today you will push harder than you ever did before because your success depends on it.
Your value doesn't decrease based on someone's inability to see your worth.
Empty the Tank.
Time, energy, and focus; these are the resources at your disposal each and every day. Do not allow them to be lost in the smog of procrastination, fear, and negativity. Empty the tank, utilize every last ounce of your resources today. And at the end of the day let there be no regrets; only a desire to do more tomorrow than you did today.
Opportunity follows struggle. It follows effort. It follows hard work. OPPORTUNITY FOLLOWS ACTION. It doesn't come before. So don’t sit back. For success to happen - Get into action.
A Day of New Action.
Your goals and dreams are within your reach; they’ve always been. The illusion of fear is what’s been hiding them from you, and the only place that fear exist is within your mind. Understand that your thoughts drive your actions, abolish those thoughts of fear and your actions will reflect your thoughts of success. Let today be a day of new action, let today be a day of success.
Today we are celebrating Women’s Day.
When I heard the story of Gautam Buddha, my question was always about his wife and son that he left behind...this write-up by Vikram Bhattacharya touches that part of the story.
He left her in the middle of the night, the night their son was
born. When she heard the news
she was devastated.
Yet, she did not complain but her
life lost all meaning. The only
reason for her to live now was
her son. She wanted him to grow
up to be a man that the world
would look up to.
Her friends and relatives came
around and asked her to forget
about the man who had left her
and start life again.
They asked her to marry again
but she refused. She was young
& beautiful & suitors queued up
outside her door, but she refused each one of them.
Then one fine day he came back !
He stood in front of her and she could hardly remember him as the man who had left her. “They call you the Buddha now?” she asked him gently.
“I hear they do,” he answered in
a calm fashion.
“What does it mean?” she further inquired.
“I think it means the enlightened one, a knower,” he informed.
She smiled and then a silence.
“I suppose we have both learned something. Your lessons O Buddha, will make the world richer in spirit, but my lesson will unfortunately remain largely unknown.”
she reflected deeply....
“ And what lesson is that ? ”
The Buddha probed.
Her eyes sparkled with unshed tears, “That a courageous woman does not need anyone to complete her.....
SHE IS COMPLETE ON HER OWN ”
Saluting womanhood. 🙏
Never give up on something you really want. It's difficult to wait, but way more difficult to regret.
Apne gam ki Numaish na kar,
Apne nasib ki Azmaish na kar,
Jo tera hai tere Pas khud ayega,
Har roz usse pane Ki khwaish na kar,
Taqdir badal jayegi apne aap hi ae dost,
Muskrana sikh le,
wajah ki talaash na kar...
Refuse to settle where you are. There is a great plan for your life. Press forward and become everything that you were created to be.
Be driven with purpose. Be relentless in your alignment with excellence. Pay no mind to the disimpassioned impotent haters.
Be open enough to see opportunities. Be wise enough to be grateful. Be courageous enough to be happy.
When you think you can't go on, force yourself to keep going. Your success is based on persistence, not luck.
Being broke is a temporary situation. Being poor, however, is a state of mind.
It’s not who you are that holds you back, it’s who you think you’re not.
Life is a gift. Yet our lives overflow with wonders that go unnoticed, unappreciated, and uncelebrated. Each moment is an opportunity to awaken to the miracle of our days, to truly treasure what lies before, around, and within us. With practice, we can train ourselves to consistently be present, delighting in our unique, transient and priceless experience.
Live Today. By not burdening yourself with what has already happened, or what may happen tomorrow, you are left to enjoy today. When dreams and desires cease to be dreams and desires- that is when they come true. Fulfilling your dreams is not a "logical" process. To be successful, you must disengage intellect from the process.
There is not much room left for success in a life filled with bitterness and self-pity. No matter how hard life is, refuse to be a victim.
Following your bliss isn't always as simple as doing whatever you like. It's about identifying a cause for which you're truly passionate about and putting your all into pursuing it. In doing so, you'll unleash your potential, feel yourself come alive, and serve the world in the way only you can. Pursue your true calling and doors will open for you that you never knew existed.
When you love yourself, you begin to radiate. Your energy glows and the world responds to how you feel about yourself. Don't wait around for external circumstances to determine how you feel about yourself. Feel good now. Love yourself now. Live unapologetically.
To be old & wise, you must first have to be young & childlike too. Maturity will come to all in due course. So go ahead and LIVE - not simply exist. Remember you have only one life. So do not waste your TODAYS simply thinking of your TOMORROWS or brooding about your YESTERDAYS.
Circumstances come into our life for a purpose, and they remain until the purpose is served.
Live life like a pair of feet. The front foot has no pride and the back foot has no shame. Because both know pretty well that their situation shall change.
Humility is not thinking less of yourself, but thinking of yourself less.
Every male dreams of a REAL MAN. I would define a real man as ONE WHO PROTECTS. Be one and teach your son to be one.
The steeper the mountain the harder the climb the better the view from the finishing line.
Be aware of your Adversity Quotient. Learn to manage failures. Rather than preparing the road for your children - prepare your children for the road.
People who commit suicide generally/might not have SUSTAINED the 4th QUOTIENT from the description below.
Little heavy dose but meaningful for walking on the difficult Road , difficult Time and DIFFERENT Situations.
Sharing an article read elsewhere.
IQ, EQ, SQ, AQ
.....According to psychologists, there are four types of intelligence:
1) Intelligence Quotient (IQ)
2) Emotional Quotient (EQ)
3) Social Quotient (SQ)
4) Adversity Quotient (AQ)
1. Intelligence Quotient (IQ): this is the measure of your comprehension ability", solve maths; memorize things and recall subject matters.
2. Emotional Quotient (EQ): this is the measure of your ability to maintain peace with others; keep to time; be responsible; be honest; respect boundaries; be humble, genuine and considerate.
3. Social Quotient (SQ):
This is the measure of your ability to build a network of friends and maintain it over a long period of time.
People that have higher EQ and SQ tend to go farther in life than those with high IQ but low EQ and SQ. Most schools capitalize in improving IQ level while EQ and SQ are played down.
A man of high IQ can end up being employed by a man of high EQ and SQ even though he has an average IQ.
Your EQ represents your character; your SQ represents your charisma. Give in to habits that will improve these three Qs but more especially your EQ and SQ.
EQ and SQ make one manage better than the other.
Pls don't teach children only to have higher IQ , but also to have higher EQ and SQ.
Now there is a 4th one :
A new paradigm
4. The Adversity Quotient (AQ):
The measure of your ability to go through a rough patch in life and come out without losing your mind.
AQ determines who will give up in face of troubles and may abandon their families.
In the current context of Corona, many professionally successful people are going thru bouts of Depression. Because they haven't seen and thus are unprepared for Adversity.
Expose children to other areas of life than academic. They should adore manual work, sport and art .
Develop their EQ, SQ and AQ. They should become multifaceted human beings able to do things independently of the parents.
Finally, do not prepare the road for the children. Prepare the children for the road.
Don’t waste words on people who deserve your silence. Sometimes the most powerful thing you can say is nothing at all.
TODAY will never come again. Be a blessing. Be a friend. Encourage someone. Take time to care. Let your words heal, and not wound.
Nurture Strengths. Rather than trying too hard to improve what you are bad at, why not capitalize on what you are good at?
Don't look for someone who will solve all your problems... look for someone who will face them with you.
Be so busy loving your life that you have no time for hate and regret.
Life is always great. A careful inventory of all your past experiences may disclose the startling fact that everything has happened for the best.
Realize that no matter where you are right now, you can always take it up a notch.
It's easy to celebrate big wins but celebrating small ones keeps a team's energy, enthusiasm, and momentum going.
A mistake that makes you humble is so much better than an achievement that makes you arrogant.
Use your feelings and emotions to manifest. The Universe does not listen to the words you use. The Universe listens to the feelings that you emit ,and responds to how you truly feel.
Go after what creates meaning in your life and then trust yourself to handle the stress that follows.
What is Stress? It's the Gap between our expectation & reality. More the gap, more the stress. So, expect nothing and accept everything. Have an extraordinary life.
Dream is not something that you see while you sleep. Dream is something that does not let you sleep.
This is the first day of the rest of your life. Make it a good one. Make tomorrow even better and the next day, week, month, year, the next century. Make every day count.
Today, do what others won't, so tomorrow you can accomplish what others can't.
When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached,don't adjust the goals, adjust the actions.
Do not let the shadows of your past darken the doorstep of your future. Forgive and forget.
Your situation in Life is not what happens to you but how you respond to what happens to you. You always have a choice. So choose well.
When you move your focus from competition to contribution….. life becomes a celebration.
Never defeat people. Just win them.
Sometimes you have to forget what's gone, appreciate what remains, and look forward to what's coming next.
Value yourself correctly. Unfortunately most people undervalue what they are, and overvalue what they are not.
It doesn’t matter what you are thinking, or what fear you have, if you just do it! Action is the only thing that matters…..I can see that at the end of my life, I am not going to look back and say, “I wish I had taken more action”
Thoughts matter because they create Matter. Intentions matter too because they create Meaning.
Remember- time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spent it for you.
Don't let obstacles stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it. Keep fighting, no matter what. And never quit!
Three things are necessary to make every man great, every nation great:
1. Conviction of the powers of goodness.
2. Absence of jealousy and suspicion.
3. Helping all who are trying to be and do good.
The purpose of life is to discover your gift; the meaning of life is to give your gift away.
Your ideas are like diamonds…without the refining process, they are just a dirty rock, but by
cutting away the impurities, they become priceless.
