I was sharing some information about Swami Vivekananda in Part I & II. Today I want to say about some of his thoughts, which are very much helpful to our life.
The waves raise, fall down, disappear and raise again in a lake. Similarly, in our mind thoughts raise, fall down but raise after some time. These thought-waves become finer and finer, when they raise again and again.
To succeed in a deed, we have to take up an idea, make that one idea our life, dream of it, think of it and live on that idea. Let the brain, body, muscles, nerves and every part of our body be full of that idea and just leave all other ideas alone. This is the way to success.
Fill the brain with high thoughts, highest ideals , place them day and night before you and out of that will come great work.
Each work has to pass through these stages – ridicule, opposition and then acceptance.
Your life is reflection of your thoughts.
If you don’t design your life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. Guess what they would have planned for you. Not much.
People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did but people will never forget how you made them feel.
If the obstacle is below you, jump over. If it’s above you, crawl under it.
We should not forget those who are helping us. We should not hate those who are loving us. We should not cheat those who believe us.
Anything which makes us weak physically, intellectually and spiritually we have to reject it as poison.
Talk to yourself atleast once in a day. Otherwise, you may miss a meeting with an excellent person in the world.
Relationships are more important in life but it is important for those relationships to have life in them.
Arise, awake and stop not until the goal is reached.
We cannot believe in God until we believe ourselves.
The world is a big gymnasium where we come to make ourselves strong.
All the powers in the universe are already ours. It is we who have put our hands before eyes and cry that it is dark.
Let us try some of the above in our life.
