By Anubhav Srivastava ( Register for his Workshop – Build Super Confidence For Super Success!)

“Desiring to be “someone” is not enough. A daily wage laborer is someone too. Know what you desire to be before you set to become that.”

“Be stubborn about making your dream a reality, be flexible about the paths you take in order to achieve it. ”

“Set unattainable goals for without working towards them you would never know what was attainable.”

“Most of us have big dreams but are afraid of ridicule. The solution? Fill up every inch of your mind with the desire to achieve your goal and focus on that solely. Over a period of time you shall attain a stage where your subconscious mind will have become so completely filled with the idea of attaining your goal, that you won’t have the time or the inclination to care about everybody else thinks.”

“People often believe that the head and the heart always have to be contradictory. That’s why they are always in a dilemma over whether they should follow their hearts or their heads. The truth is if you follow your heart but do not use your head you shall only make foolish, emotional decisions. If you follow only your head but do not put your heart into it, you will never be happy. The heart and the head have to be aligned. The passion and the fire in your heart has to be complimented by a vision and a strategy in your head.”

“If you keep changing your goals every time you encounter setbacks, you are likely to reach none of them. Stick to one goal with unflinching commitment and you will surely achieve it one day. Change the path if you have to, but not the destination.”

“Dreams are worthless if they are mere wishes. They become powerful only when you turn them into a goal. To carve your destiny you should have the courage to go after what you want and the determination to stick with the pursuit long enough. Those who can do that are the ones who stand a chance of turning their dreams into reality. The rest just live in a fantasy world.’

“Some people think it’s a waste of time if you chase your dreams. I believe it’s a waste of life if you don’t.”

“Dreams only come true for those who wake up in the morning and decide to reach out for them.”

“Out of the thousands that dream, some fulfill it. But out of the millions that don’t, none does. So dream but more importantly chase those dreams.”

“Results come from efforts, not daydreaming. But dreaming is important nevertheless, for without dreams we wouldn’t know what we wanted.”

“We all have the capability to fly high and achieve our dreams. But to take off you need to first build a plane and then build a runway. Have great dreams but be practical in your implementation.”

“Dreaming without action is pointless. Action without dreaming is senseless.”

“Chase your dreams but don’t leave behind the things that make you happy. A dream that requires you to sacrifice your happiness is hardly ever worth it. “

“There is a difference between a goal and a dream. A dream is something you wish for. A goal is something you strive for. Humans have dreamed of going to the moon for thousands of years and yet it remained unachievable. But in 1962, the American president JFK set a goal of landing a man on the moon before the end of the decade. On the 21st of July, 1969 we achieved it. Why is it that within 7 years, man managed to land on the moon? Why is that more than forty years later, man hasn’t landed on Mars? The answer is simple. The former was a clear goal, the latter is a dream. The day it becomes a goal, nobody can stop mankind.”
