“Everyone is capable of being the greatest in the world at some field. The tragedy is that they usually choose the wrong field.”

“You only begin to live once you realize you are willing to die for.”

“We’ve always been told “hard” work is the key to success. Well, the key to success is to love your work so much you never find it hard.”

“Following your passion may not always give you an easy life but it will certainly give you a life worth living.”

“Everyone knows they won’t be around forever but very few reflect upon this great truth often. Therefore, assess your priorities. Decide what is most important to you in life and pursue that dream. The last thing you want is to die with a sense of regret.”

“There are two ways to go through life. You either live your dream or you live through it like a terminal disease. Either way, you will die at the end, but at least one gives you a reason to have existed at all.”

“The acronym TGIF was probably coined by someone who did what he hated. If you do what you love, you will never say “Thank God it’s Friday”, instead you will thank God for every day.”

“Following your passion is important but so is identifying your strength. If you are passionate about something but that is not your core strength, you will probably not become great at it. Therefore, identify that one thing where your passion and strength merge. Think about how you can give value to people around you while pursuing it. Finally, have the courage to follow your convictions. This is the key to leading a life that makes you happy and also makes a difference in the world.”

“The life of an animal is limited to fulfilling biological needs, doing the same things everyday and going through life without a greater purpose. They can’t do much about it since their brains aren’t programmed for something beyond that. But the greatest irony is that most people live the same way. If you didn’t have the potential for greater things, you wouldn’t have been born as a human. Don’t waste away your life with meaningless repetition. Devote your life to a purpose that makes life worth living.”

“If you have a life goal, sometimes the destination is so far away that there is no guarantee you will ever reach there within the time you thought you would, which is why pursuing your passion is so important so that even if you fail, you can say the journey was worth every bit.”

“Successful people don’t succeed by doing extraordinary things that nobody can do, they succeed by doing ordinary things in an extraordinary way.”

“Most people would rather believe the secret to success that is nonsense as compared to the “secret” that is common sense. Not surprising though as the one that is nonsense seems to be the path of least effort. Unfortunately, that’s just not the way the life works. You get back what you put in.”

“Passion without discipline doesn’t do much good. Passion is an emotional state that goes through high and low phases and solely relying on your emotional state to accomplish results will not lead to much at all. Discipline alone may give you some results, but without passion it will lead to a mechanical and monotonous life. If you can combine tremendous passion with intense discipline, you will be on your way to achieving greatness in whatever goal you strive for. That is the stuff champions are made of.”

“Success is the product of Talent, Passion and Discipline. Alone, they won’t do much. Together, they are an unbeatable combination.”

“Why do most of us give up? We give up because we have made it an easy option. As long as quitting is an option, the natural instinct shall be to retreat immediately when things don’t work out the way you expected. The only way to give your absolute best shot in the pursuit to accomplish something great is to systematically destroy all paths that tempt you to turn around. When the path to go back is destroyed, the only thing you can do is march forward and succeed. Even if you die trying, at least you will know in your heart that you didn’t run away”.

“Change might be the law of the universe. But a radical positive change in your life will rarely happen if you aren’t thoroughly fed up with your present circumstances and decide to do something about it.”

“Regardless of any wise advice anyone gives you, try doing the opposite at least once. What worked for them might be terrible advice for you and what they think is useless maybe your greatest life changer. You will get your greatest lessons from your own successes and failures, not others’ subjective experiences.”
