He kept reminding people that nothing is impossible. The real problem is that we limit to know our capabilities.

Dedication:

Vivekanand Quotes

“To succeed, you must have tremendous perseverance, tremendous will. ‘I will drink the ocean’, says the persevering soul; ‘at my will mountains will crumble up’. Have that energy, that sort of will; work hard, and you will reach the goal.”
Dedication with discipline is the key to success. Follow and you will see it for yourself. Pursuing a challenge with utmost dedication is, indeed, a road to success for our youth.

Team work:

Vivekanand Quotes

For any organization to work effectively, efficient team work is necessary. While his visit to USA , he was greatly influenced by the way teams at different sectors worked there. He wanted that Indians must understand and carry this out in their lives.

Power is with us:

Vivekanand Quotes

“All the powers in the universe are already ours. It is we who have put our hands before our eyes and cry that it is dark.”
We often blame our failures on other factors because they are not in our control but fail to look our own shortcomings. Time and again, people from around the world remind us that nothing can stop you from realizing your dream if you truly work hard for it. This is another self realization lesson which he often told to the youth.

“Whatever you think, that you will be. If you think yourselves weak, weak you will be; if you think yourselves strong, strong you will be.”

Yet another emphasis which he lay was over the fact of realizing our true potential.

Your thoughts make you. Beware. Think good. Be good.

In this rat race of making money and fame of the so-called “humans” or the only walking and talking corpse”, we must distinguish ourselves and get reassured of our real motto of living in this life. Take these points into your mind and try to lead a comparatively happier, successful, peaceful life.

Sometimes a moody writer, sometimes it's all about being invariable. A vicar of my own thoughts, I try to weave memories into strings and gather a garland of words. Writing on social issues is my personal favorite but I also imbibe in the art of poetry. Doodling my way from soil to stars, I sketch sarcasm in the sarcastically possible way! All these amalgamated with my sense of writing provide a fine finish to my artistic skills.
