“A truly wise person becomes humbler the more he rises. “
“Humility does not mean being silent or non assertive. Nor does it mean one should not be confident. Humility is believing in yourself but not constantly thrusting in the other person’s face about how great you are. It is the insecure person who needs to constantly show off about how awesome he is. Perhaps initially this is not such a bad thing as insecurity could also propel the drive to achieve things. But as one becomes wise, the more they rise, the humbler they get. “
“Even if you are great at what you do, there is always someone better. Even if you are the best today, you can’t remain the best forever. So no matter how high you rise, always remain humble. Because if you can’t teach yourself humility, time will teach it to you.”
“Never look down upon anyone. They are always better than you at something.”
“Humility is a lesson best learned willingly. Because if you don’t, time will eventually teach it to you in a cruel fashion.”
“Most of us have wanted to be movie stars at some point. The truth is you already are. You are the script writer, director and leading star of the movie called your life. It’s usually up to you if you want a happy ending.
“You can’t appreciate great joy if you haven’t experienced great despair.”
“Happiness does not necessarily come through satisfying your own needs. Sometimes you get greater satisfaction from fulfilling the needs of someone else. And by doing so, you can find fulfilment in your own life. “
“The key to happiness does not lie in materialistic benefits. Over time they will cease to give you any joy. The key is not excessive attachment to people either. One day or the other that will result in grief. Happiness lies in devoting your life to a goal you are truly passionate about. Happiness lies in living for a purpose you are willing to die for.”
“To try and make everyone happy will certainly ensure your unhappiness.”
“Life’s way too short to conform to everyone else’s expectations and make them happy. Someone, somewhere will always have a problem with you. Just do what your heart says and make yourself happy.”
“Those afraid of opposition shall never be worthy of admiration.”
“Contrary to popular belief, the pioneers of the world are not fearless. They are as susceptible to fear as anyone else. It’s just that, to them, the fear of leading an uneventful life is much greater than the fear of failing in the pursuit of something great.”
“Most of our fears are worries that have no basis in reality. But we are constantly plagued by the question “What if?” The only way to conquer fear is to replace “What if?” with “So what!” and carry out what you fear anyway. It may seem hard at first but postponing this action will only intensify your suffering. Over a period of time your fears will turn into something you can laugh at, but first, you need to be willing to take this leap of faith! Do you want to be a master of your life or a slave to your worries? Make your choice.”
