Today I plan to share a couple of my favorite quotes that inspire me, motivate me and push me to work towards my goals and shower happiness in life.
So here we go.
"You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life."
It is a universal truth. If you go by the flow, no one even looks at you, you simply go unnoticed. On the other hand, if you stand your ground, be firm on your convictions, you will be criticized, torn to pieces and even the best your friend may become your sworn enemies.
This is where ones resolve comes into play. If you know what you are doing is right for you, the family and the society, you must not allow any amount of opposition to change your course, ultimately people will see the reason and start respecting you.
"You must be the change you wish to see in the world".
Very strong and powerful message in a few words. This is the beauty of quotes.
If you want to bring about any change of order, things or way of life. If you want people to do certain things in a way different than what they are used to doing. You must first set an example yourself, you must start with the change in your own way of life before preaching it to others. Gandhi’s one call to boycott all imported items in the mid-thirties, had the whole country follow him as he gave up all luxuries for himself first.
People do things or follow you, if they see you yourself doing them. Lead by example will be an appropriate quote here.
"Anyone who has never made a mistake
has never tried anything new".
Who can disagree with what Einstein said, only a fool. Mistakes are part of an effort. One is bound to make mistakes if he tries a process or work. In the process, mistakes are bound to happen as we are all humans, bundles of mistakes. A person who never tries or attempts to do anything will naturally not commit any mistake. I would however add quickly that he makes the blunder of wasting this gift of life which you only get once.
My inspiration from this is to do mistakes and accomplish something and not commit blunder and waste the life.
“Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you’re right.” –Henry Ford
I simply love Henry Ford for his simple yet power packed quotes. It is all in our mind. If we think we will succeed in a task and do the task honestly, chances are we sure will succeed. On the other hand if one feels that the task is beyond him, he will fail irrespective of the efforts he puts.
Our mind writes the result even before we undertake the task because our belief system has already predetermined the outcome. Our mind takes over our thoughts and turns them into reality.
Believe and firmly believe that you will succeed and your outcome will prove your belief right.
“It is not the strongest of the species that survive, it is the one that adapts successfully to change.” – Charles Darwin
In the recent past, the number of industrial giants, big consulting firms and financial institutions that had to shut their business is simply mind boggling. The reason for all of them is the same. Their inability to manage change. In the life of a corporation, various phases come, each phase come will with new and challenging set of demands, these demands vary from changing technology, changing market behavior or changing customer needs. If the corporation is unable to manage these challenges, there is only one possibility, to perish.
It is ironical that knowing fully well that the market and technology will be ever demanding, people do not prepare themselves for the change, instead of managing change, adapting change they allow themselves to be managed by change.
