Never fail yourself
Never Fail Yourself
Rabindranath Tagore said,
"Reach high, for stars lie hidden in you. Dream deep for every dream precedes the goal."
Strength and weakness is within us. Success and failure is within us. If you think you will fail, you will never succeed, for you will never give that thing your full try. On contrary if you think you will succeed, no hindrance will be big enough to fail you. Whether you achieve your dream or not, is not as important , as starting on your way to achieve them, with full faith and determination. You tried and tried your best is more important because that gives you satisfaction and strength.
In Geeta, Lord says-
"Do your duty, do not worry about result"
Your work is your duty and that has to be done. A man is powerhouse made by God.Swami Vivekananda said-
"All power is within you, you can do anything and everything. Believe in that, do not believe that you are weak...You can do anything and everything, without even guidance of anyone. All power is there. Stand up and express the divinity within you....Arise, awake, sleep no more."
Never let your confidence be marred by what others say about you. Trust yourself, then only slowly people will trust you. You need not always hear and heed to people who always have negative to say about you.
“There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done,
There are thousands to prophesy failure;
There are thousands to point out to you, one by one,
The dangers that wait to assail you.
But just buckle in with a bit of a grin,
Just take off your coat and go to it;
Just start to sing as you tackle the thing
That "cannot be done," and you'll do it.”Edgar A. Guest
Marilyn Monroe was told by one producer that she is unattractive and could not act. If she would have heard those words then she would have been never successful as American actress, model and singer.
Our life is our choice and we are the only person responsible for it. The only way to get rid of fear of doing something is to do it. Many of us have great dreams and ideas for life when we are young, but slowly we start molding or modifying them as per circumstances or people around us or merely because of fear which makes us believe that we cannot do it. On fear Swami Vivekananda said-
"It is tremendous error to feel helpless. The moment you fear you are nobody."
It is fear that is great cause of misery. Fear is the greatest of superstitions. The whole World has been made by the energy of man, by the power of enthusiasm and faith.
Here it is worth mentioning story of a girl named Joe, whose husband has left her. She used to stay in a one room apartment, with her girl child. The child won’t let her write, so she used to take her to coffee shop and wrote stories there. With all hard work, her first book was published and name of the book was, ‘Harry Potter and Philosopher Stone'. She got 1500 pound for her first book. Joe is now popularly known as JK Rowling and is earning in millions of pounds.
Always have faith and believe in yourself and your abilities. We have infinite power manifested within ourselves and it is we who set our limitations. It is we who are the obstacles on the path to our own success. Do you all remember the infinite sign in mathematics, it is we who use numbers for our practical ease 0, 1,2 ,3.. or 100..or 1000….10000001.. soon. So it is up to us, which number we want to give ourselves. What I want to say is, you can be a zero or a millionaire, it is up to you.
If you cannot make it through one door, try going through another or if you can see no door fitting your needs, make one for yourself. If you are persistent enough, something glorific will come no matter how dark the present.
Remember "God helps those, who help themselves". It is after the darkest of night that dawn sets in.
And last but not the least whatever comes always love and respect yourself. If you do so you will be able to come out of any disaster in your life whether personal or professional.
Below are two beautiful quotes, i thought to share with all of you-
"You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection." -Gautam Buddha
"Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever."- Gandhi
