All the people whom the world called “successful” have started from their limitations and limited environments. All they had was a burning desire to fulfill their dream and determination to achieve their goals at any cost. Achievements made them legends. The sweat of efforts and sacrifices behind the visible success perhaps never surfaced. Every man is a story. Every man has a history.
Price of Success
If you are alive, you can succeed. Your attitude to succeed will make you successful.
On Secret of Success
Life is an opportunity. Its nature is evolution. Mistakes are its corrections. Success is in self-acceptance.
Life as it is
If we believe in our goal, we will achieve it. An activity that you do not believe in is just like a body without a soul in it.
Secrets of Success
The longevity of appreciation is usually until the next criticism. We should never be proud of appreciation nor depressed because of criticism as both are temporary. So is respect and contempt as well as success and failure. All are different flavors of life. They come and go with time.
On Absolute Wisdom
Individual karma (with its roots in unfulfilled desires) is the cause of events of life. Those who attribute to another, especially a guru, for their sets of successes and failures of life are existing in gross ignorance. Grace can only soften the intensity of hard-earned desires. A guru can probably soften the impact of experiences by giving awareness and energy protection. Nothing more. Birth, death and major events of life are predetermined, predestined before taking this birth. A guru has nothing to do with it. If this is not understood, estrangement from the guru is the result, along with its quota of disappointments, disillusionment and despair.
On Raw Destiny
Life cannot be rehearsed and performed. Every moment is different and so is every situation. Those who are afraid of making mistakes in life, never explored their lives. All the adventurers have fallen many times before they found success. Those who are afraid of failures always chose mediocrity instead of individual originality. And those who could not accept failures of others have proven to be untrustworthy too.
Recently, I told a person who kept telling me to be careful about so many things and tried to induce fears in me, “I am here to experience life as it comes and express myself in my complete originality. A part of this effort might be considered as mistakes by the history. I never consider myself as perfect at all. And I cannot help mistakes or failures nor do I care. I choose to express my originality. I do not choose fears as well as comfort zones or beaten tracks because of fears. I am what I am today because I choose not to walk the beaten track even though I am aware of my imperfections. If you can accept me as I am with all my weaknesses, my several mistakes, failures and falls, we have a life ahead and a world ahead. I cannot promise success alone because I do not have any control over the results of my actions. I can only ensure that my intentions are pure, benevolent and unselfish. I cannot promise any beds of roses. If you stand by me, I shall respect you and stand by you too. If you judge me, you can never love me or accept me totally. If you stand by my failures, you will also be with me during my success. If you choose to only dish out fears and paralyze me, I have nothing to do with you.”
This is my truth yesterday, today and tomorrow.
