“Words of inspiration can ignite our hearts and make us move but it is our job to keep the fire burning.”

“A true leader doesn’t tell others to do what he wants, he leads by being the first one to do it and inspires others to follow his example.”

“We will all die, so what? The question is did we make a difference while we were alive? “

“If you can’t stand up for yourself, don’t blame the world for pushing you down again and again. There has to come a time, when you take responsibility for your life and decide to push back harder! Are you going to live life on your own terms or let someone else impose them on you? The choice is yours and yours alone.”

“We all make mistakes whether they be little or great. The question is not whether you will avoid making mistakes because no matter what happens, you will always make one at some point of time. The question is whether you shall carry the burden of guilt and belittle yourself forever or whether you shall wisen up and choose to become a better person.”

“Nobody ever got ahead in life by whining and complaining.”

“Ask most people if they believe in a God they have never seen and they will say yes. Ask them if they believe in themselves and they won’t be so sure. When you start believing in yourself, you take responsibility for your life instead of leaving it all to a higher power. And once you take responsibility, you can achieve almost anything.”

“Don’t worry too much about the result or you may end up never starting at all.

“Diamond and coal are made from the same element. The only difference lies in their crystal structure. Great men and mediocre ones also possess similar physical characteristics. The only difference lies in their thinking.”

“Don’t aspire for recognition and respect. Aspire to become deserving of it.”

“Death is certain, living a life that made a difference is optional.”

“If you present a monkey with a diamond on one hand and a banana in the other, the monkey will pick the banana every time, not knowing that the diamond can be traded for a million bananas. So don’t worry if you keep meeting people who can’t see your worth immediately. You just need to stop dealing with the monkeys and look for people with more evolved minds.”

Role Models

“The next time the world tells you it can’t happen, remember it also said the same to every single person we now refer to as a role model.”

“Respect your role models but never put them on a pedestal. You subconsciously acknowledge that you can never become what they became. “

“Emulate everyone because everyone has qualities worth emulating. Imitate no one because not even a single person in the world is perfect. “

“Every person is superior to another in at least one field or area. There is not a single person on earth from whom we can’t learn anything.”

“Respect your role models but never make the mistake of worshipping them. They are not Gods. When you put your role models on a pedestal, you are just putting yourself down. Remember, they too were once a part of the crowd. If they can rise out of nowhere, so can you! History has shown that humble beginnings have never put a limit on how great one can rise. All you need to do is to ignite the fire within and then proceed in the direction suited to your talent. You shall Carve Your Destiny.”
