“Accept Negative Advice only as a Challenge.” As big men don’t laugh at big ideas.
Don’t let NEGATORS destroy plan to success. Negators are everywhere and they seem to delight in sabotaging the positive progress of others.
Have faith in yourself. Never loose faith. There are opportunities hanging around. You just have to grab them.
If we don’t loose our hope and stay positive, we will always find a way.
Our mind revolves around the things we feed it. Feed it with positivity and it will always find you a way out.
To achieve anything three interconnected and interwoven forms of discipline are needed – perception, will and the action.
Only the people who have learned how to see situations for what they truly are can capitalize on hidden details. You can choose to see what you want to see. You could focus on negatives or magnify possibilities and the chances that each barrier avails.
“My life is one long obstacle course with me as the chief obstacle.”
Closed doors are not always what they appear to be. It all depends how you see it. To you it is a dead end, to some, it is a chance to find new routes or blaze a trial through it, and teach others to follow.
“You are the biggest obstacle, but you are also the change that you seek.”
Shaping your perspective allows you to fixate on those slim chances. There are things that you might not have the power to control, but choosing to give it your all is totally within your domain.
True to this, the most compelling success stories are those that feature people who had challenged seemingly impossible feats. As such, live in the present, think differently and believe that there is nothing beyond you. Now, you are ready to put all this mind conditioning talk to work, it is time to act.
“To believe in something and not to live it, is dishonest.”
You have to put it to work, act on your perception, overcome the barriers, and prepare for the next one. Chances are that someone or something is going to stand in your way. That’s a given, the most important information, thereafter is your actions or inactions.
Great people on the other hand capitalize on some of the faintest hints of success, and they never look back.
In other words, you do not need all the stars to align, all you need is one star, and then get moving.
Nevertheless, sometimes success does not come cheap. You might need to throw everything you have at the obstacle.
In a way, persistence helps us to find new ways of doing things, especially when we have exhausted all the conventional solutions. With each trial and error, we find iterations that are unsuitable and failures that teach us what and where to improve.
Follow the process: fail, learn and improve.
In essence, the future might look bleak for now, but the progress you have made today is the only assurance that you are heading in the right direction.
“Whatever you do will be insignificant, but it is very important that you do it.“
Doing work and working smartly are two different things. Always find an edge. Smart people do less work because they prefer exerting force on more meaningful things. Turn your defeat into a template for you to learn.
“I am a pessimist because of intelligence and an optimist because of will.”
Regardless of the setback, you should not stop having a passion for what you do.
Passion in itself pushes you to help others fighting defeats, it sets you on a pedestal of leadership where your failures could motivate the lost.
Identify the goals, thereafter outline all the challenges you might face, and get your mind prepared for the confrontation ahead. Map out a strategy and get to work.
OBSTACLES ARE THE STEPPING STONES TO SUCCESS
Those who had found it and lived by it had gone to carve their names in history. They understood that struggles, battles, barriers, and challenges are all a part of the process. More so, they have the responsibility to turn them into opportunities. However, this capability is not restricted to a select few, you too can ride the waves of challenges to your destination.
“We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.”
“The Obstacle is the way.”
“Drop all the garbage of the past and just smile and move forward.
Your complaining does not help improve or resolve anything.” – SriSri
“Life is many more dimensions than you imagine is possible. It is only when you enhance your perception, you’ll access it, not in making conclusions.
This is one thing, we have to bring in to our children that most of the universe we live in, we do not know. A sense of wonder, an interest in everything that surround us.
Right now, we’ve idiotic conclusions about everything that we keep changing every 25 years.
It’s time we pay attention to the magnificent creation to which we are living. If we do this, all the other things that we are talking about will naturally fall into place, because the fight in the world, the conflict in the world is not between good and bad as people would like to project it, it is always between one man’s belief or other man’s belief. We are always fighting over that endlessly.
If we wondered about everything around us, if we paid attention to everything the universe will yield in a fantastic way. And if you live for million years, it will still keep you interested.” – Sadhguru
It is really beautiful when someone prays for you without you even knowing. It’s the highest form of respect, love and care.
It’s enough to begin.
What saves a man is to take a step. Then another step. It is always the same step, but you have to take It.
– Antonie De Saint Exupery
Wind, Sand and Stars.
Reading is a powerful way to gain many years of experience from a few hours of study. Develop a habit of speedy reading.
Books help you see what is already in yourself. This is what enlightenment is all about.
A great life is nothing more than a series of great, well – lived days strung together like a necklace of pearls.
As you live your days so you create your life. Life is nothing just a DIY project, most people realize this when they have spent half of their lives.
God seems to throw himself on the side of the man who knows exactly what he wants, if he is determined to get Just That.
The person who stops studying merely because he has finished school is forever hopelessly doomed to mediocrity, no matter what may be his calling. The way of success is the way of continuous pursuit of knowledge.

There are no limitations to the mind, except those we acknowledge. Both poverty and riches are the offspring of thought.
