“One of the main reasons of misery in this world is that we attach our lives to people or objects rather than to a purpose.”

“Life will always be a mixed bag of great joy and great despair. One can’t always win, nor can they always fail.”

“Every emotion you experience is a reaction of your own mind to external situations. Once you understand that you shall realize that nobody in the world can hurt you, except you.”

“Nobody in the world can make you happy or sad, except yourself, for every feeling you experience involves the conscious reaction of your own mind to external situations.”

“It is a fallacy to believe anyone else can make you feel bad about yourself. They cannot. They can only plant a negative suggestion in your mind and those suggestions themselves are meaningless. It is only when you consciously choose to accept what they said that those words begin to have any sort of power over you.”

“Everything that we encounter presents us with an opportunity to learn. They maybe hard lessons but they are lessons nevertheless. Therefore, the greatest teacher is not an external individual but our own life. If we refuse to learn from it, our human journey is a waste.”

“Every experience you have in life has a purpose and exists for a reason. You would never appreciate happiness if you never knew how it feels like to be sad. You will never appreciate love and care if you never knew how it feels like to be treated badly. Embrace these experiences, for without them there would be nothing interesting in life.”

“Don’t ruin your present by constantly worrying about the mistakes of the past or the uncertainties of the future. What has happened cannot be changed but can be learned from. What is supposed to happen will happen only at the right time. Do your best and enjoy your present, don’t make it yet another regret”


“Many of us get jealous of certain people getting the spotlight. But how many of us are willing to pay as strong a price as they did? How many of us are willing to keep working through countless nights of monotony and obscurity to become deserving of acclaim. Instead of trying to bring such people down, it is much better to try and learn to be like them. And don’t worry about undeserving people getting the spotlight. If they are truly undeserving, they won’t last long anyway.”

“ If you have unfulfilled desires in your life, and somebody else accomplishes them and thus shines in the spotlight, it is quite natural to be jealous of them. And that is how most people react. But instead if you choose to aspire to be like them and learn from them, you stand a much greater chance of making your own dreams come true”.

“True success is contentment. But a lot of people falsely use the term to hide their failure when they are actually complacent. The difference between contentment and complacency is the lack of happiness and a surplus of jealousy.”

“When you succeed in life, people who get to know about you will either become fans or critics. But with the exception of those extremely close to you, it’s usually the people you have always known that will become jealous.”
