Finding the right career is like finding your soul mate. The odds of you finding one is slim. You may not ever get what is compatible with you the most, yet spend the rest of your life dedicating to the second best.
Keep looking and not give up until you’re satisfied. You are not obligated to aim for the best, but do avoid the worst. And the worst that could happen is ‘regret’.
Pulling someone back doesn’t mean you get ahead. You still lose, remaining behind the person.
Failure is frustrating. That’s why we strive for success.
It is easier to sustain one’s success rather than persist through failure.
By focusing on your present, you can change your past and your future.
It’s true that past is a done deal. How the events unravelled back then cannot be changed. But what you can change about it is perspective. Instead of viewing the past as the time lost, see it as a time well spent. The rise and the fall constructed your present and will also construct your future.
The future changing argument is plausible right? By controlling your present you can gain some control of the future. But it is also true that the future will not be laid out exactly as you planned now. Some past deeds that cannot be undone will affect it and some uncertain future factors will also affect the future in some way.
Planning and controlling your present is not a fool-proof way to achievement. But it does serve its purpose no matter how big or small. When someone is stuck in the darkness they will always be drawn towards light, no matter how faint.
That’s why no matter how significant or insignificant your present seems to you now, at this very moment it is your only light. Cherish it. Don’t let it fade.
Only three types of people are cared about: those who are sociable, those who are useful and those who are best at what they do.
Negativity is inevitable.No matter how much negativity you try to scoop out of life,there will be some left.Instead of being dead set on removing the negative from the life, why shouldn’t we try to add more positive?
If you’re just focused with removing the dirt from life, the only thought that you will be preoccupied by is ‘dirt’.What we need to understand that there are other things in life important to us, that could also use our attention and care.
We all try to dodge negative experiences in life.Some we escape gracefully, but some hit us bad. It is in our power to ‘pick up’ the positive bat and neutralize the negative that is thrown at us.
Holding on to anything requires energy, whether an object or a thought. It is upto us to conserve that energy by letting go of the bad and expend that energy to embrace the good.
Don’t judge yourself on the basis of consequences of your action.Because that is something you can’t control.
Judge yourself on the basis of effort you put in.Because that is something you can control.
Hard work doesn’t guarantee 100% success in life.But whatever the amount of success it does guarantee will always be higher than the amount of success when you don’t try at all.
Why people are hell bent on finding life in outerspace when they can’t even appreciate its beauty right here.
You can only appreciate something out there, when you appreciate it in you.
