One Word



Do you have a principle in your life? No, then make a principle in your life. It is a must need thing for you. A man without principle never achieves anything in his life. What is the principle of your life? Your principle of life is to live the best life no matter whatsoever happens. Your principle of life is to become a winner. Your principle of life is to become a successful person. Your principle of life is to live a dignified life.

You’re born with natural talents and abilities. But if you’ve no principle of life, then your natural talents and abilities are worthless. You can’t do anything. It is only your principle of life which arise your dormant potentials. You’ve infinite energy and power within you. You’ve to arise it. You’ve to awake it. You’ve to ignite it.

Have you ever asked yourself why you are in this world? No. You’re in this world to make a difference not only in your life, but also in your dear ones’ lives. You’ve every right to make your life beautiful. You’ve every reason to make your life meaningful.

Always remember that a man without principle is directionless. He is like a bird without wings. He is like a ship without anchor. He is like a blind. He is like a dumb. He is like a lame. He will always wander in his entire life.

What do you want in your life? A Happy life or an unhappy life? Choice is yours.

A man of principle is always clear in his visions and directions. He knows his mission of life. He will always move ahead in his life. He will stand tall and firm like a giant mountain in every juncture of his life.

Always try to become a man of principle. Only your principle of life will lead you to the path of your happiness and success.



Your principle of life is to live with dignity.

Your principle of life is to be happy.

Your principle of life is to be graceful.

Your principle of life is to be positive.

Your principle of life is to be motivated.

Your principle of life is to be energetic.

Your principle of life is to be powerful.

Your principle of life is to be successful.

Chapter-1

You’re responsible for your success



If you want a grand success in your life, then the only mantra for your success is lying within you. There is no other external source remaining for you. It’s only you. It’s only you. You’re the only responsible for your success. You’re the only responsible for your failure.

You’re responsible for everything you think or act in your life. You’re responsible for everything you plan or decide in your life. You never blame on anybody if you ever failed to execute your thoughts, plans, decisions and actions, because you’re the sole responsible for everything. You’re responsible for every outcome of your life.

If you’re successful in your life, then you’re only responsible for your success.

If you fail in your life, then you’re only responsible for your failure.



You will never going to share your success or failure with anybody in your life.



Your life is like a small seed of a plant the way you sow it, the way you reap its fruits. But you’ve to toil for it. Both day in and day out. Day and night. Then only you will get what you want from it.

Your success is always depended upon you. It is on your hands. You can make it the way you want. And you can turn it the way you wish.

If you’ve a good amount of money in your pocket, then it depends on you whether you spend for a good cause or for a bad cause. You’re responsible for either of the cause.



You’re like the goldsmith of your life.

You can convert your life into any form or any design of jewels.



You’ve infinite source of talents and skills hidden within yourself. It is your responsibility to unearth it yourself. You’ve to realize yourself. Nobody will come to you to awake your quiescent potentials. It is only you who will have to awake it. Then only you can mould and nurture your talents and skills into your grand success.



It is always up to you what you want in your life: success or failure; happiness or unhappiness.



Let us suppose that, if a living room is completely shut in the shadows of darkness, then it is up to you whether you would switch on the lights and brighten your living room, or you would keep your living room in complete darkness as earlier.

Many people desperately want to get great success in their lives, but their problem is that they never want to switch on their lives. They like to live their lives in darkness.

They are always waiting for the great things to be happened in their lives. They are waiting for the great opportunities in their lives rather than working hard on their abilities. Waiting for the great opportunities is not a bad thing, but doing nothing is bad thing for you. You’ll get nothing. You’ll always remain empty-handed.

Always remember that it is only your hard works which knock at the doors of the great opportunities.



Try to create your own opportunities in your life with your own responsibilities.



There are many great men who have created great histories while creating their own opportunities in their lives, like Dhirubhai Ambani, Henry ford, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg and many more. They never waited for the great opportunities in their lives to be happened. They have made the things to happen in their lives. They have created their own opportunities.



Is there anything that happens itself without doing anything?

If anybody thinks so, then it is a foolish act. He will never gain anything in his life. He will never reach anywhere. He will only revolve like a playing Top.

But there are many people who think like this. And they, knowingly and unknowingly, repeat it once and again. They never learn anything from their mistakes in their entire lives. And they are always blaming on others, living a mediocre life.



If you want to relish the scrumptious dish today, then what will do the first thing in your kitchen? Obviously, you would buy the best ingredients for your dish. Then you start preparing it according to the requirements, such as, cutting, peeling and washing. And when everything is ready, you start cooking your dish, and allow it for some time to cook. And after sometime you’ll get the wafting sweet and delicious smell of your dish all around your kitchen as well as in your living room. Finally you’ll relish your favourite dish with your heart content.

Similarly, if you want to relish the scrumptious success in your life, then everything is relying on you. You’ve to think. You’ve to plan. You’ve to decide. You’ve to prepare. And finally you’ve to act. Nobody will come to help you. You’ve to help yourself. You’re responsible for everything.



Nobody will become a better cook than you in your life,

Because you know what are the best ingredients for your life.



This life is yours so as your success or failure. You’re responsible for everything. Everything is on your shoulders whether you accept it or reject it; whether you mend it or break it. You’ve to think yourself. You’ve to plan yourself. You’ve to decide yourself. You’ve to prepare yourself. And you’ve to execute yourself.

But first of all, you must know your strong points, and your weak points before you act on any of your commitments. Because when you know your strengths and weaknesses, then only you could easily execute it in the best possible manner.

You must know what is good for you, and what is bad for you, after all you’re responsible for your own life. Because one good decision may lead you to the sparkling brightness of success; and one bad decision may lead you to the engulfing darkness of failure.

You’re like the scriptwriter of your own film. You can write any story as you like in your script. You’re responsible for your own story. Either your story is hit or flop, you’re the sole responsible. You never blame on anybody for your success or failure.

If you get a white paper, then it is up to you what you want to write on it. If you want to write success on it, then you can write on it. And if you want to write failure on it, then you can write on it. Choice is always yours.



You’re responsible for yourself, whatever you think;

Whatever you plan; whatever you decide; whatever you prepare; and whatever you act.



Your life is like a white paper.

Whether you write something on it,

Or you leave it blank.

Or you tear it.

Whether you write success on it,

Or you write failure on it.

Everything depends upon you.

You’ve to think yourself.

You’ve to plan yourself.

You’ve to decide yourself.

You’ve to prepare yourself.

You’ve to act yourself.

After all you’re the sole responsible for your own life.

The 1st success principle to remember is:





You’re the sole responsible for your success.

You’re the sole responsible for your failure.

Think and Act



You are responsible for your life. You can’t keep blaming somebody else for your dysfunction. Life is really about moving on.

---Orpah Winfreg



You are the one who is responsible for your failure…..You are the one who is responsible for your success. At any cost don’t blame others.



Challenges make you more responsible. Always remember that life without struggle is a life without success. Don’t give up and learn not to quit.



Each man is questioned by life; and he can only answer to life by answering for his own life; to life he can only respond by being responsible.

---Viktor Frankl



You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today.

---Abraham Lincoln

Chapter-2

You have to reinvent yourself



Reinvent means transforming yourself from good to better, and from better to best.

Reinvent means turning yourself into perfection.

Reinvent means making yourself into excellence.

Reinvent means finding your hidden potentials.

Reinvent means knowing your true-self.



Everything is already exists in this world. For instance, all the five elements of our life like air, water, fire, earth and sky are already exist in this world. We just need to reinvent it for ourselves that means to modify it for our requirements.

When a scientist works in his laboratory in order to invent something new, at that time he devotes himself everything in his experiment. He totally forgets himself and everything around him. He is only aware of his experiment. He works throughout day and night, skipping his lunch, rest and sleep, concentrating with one single-minded goal. He works like a mad man. He forgets about his health, and his family. He forgets his all attachments and commitments with the worldly affairs till he succeeds in his experiment. And finally, after many days, many weeks, many months, and many years, hard tiring experiments, he comes out from his lab with flying colours, and proclaims his invention to the world.

This world is like your lab and you’re like a scientist of your life. You’ve to devote yourself completely to invent new things for yourself. You’ve to work hard with one single-minded goal, day in and day out, to invent something special for yourself. No doubt, there are many hurdles coming on your way every second, every minute, every hour, every day, every week, every month and every year, waiting for you with their opening jaws to trap you. But you’ve to work hard like a mad man, forgetting everything. Then only you’ll glimpse the bright sunshine of your success.



When you reinvent yourself, you’ll know your energy.

When you reinvent yourself, you’ll know your power.

When you reinvent yourself, you’ll know your strength.

When you reinvent yourself, you’ll know your skills.

When you reinvent yourself, you’ll know your talents.

When you reinvent yourself, you’ll know your weakness.

When you reinvent yourself, you’ll know your positive points.

When you reinvent yourself, you’ll know your negative points.

When you reinvent yourself, you’ll know the goals of your life.

When you reinvent yourself, you’ll find the directions of your life.

When you reinvent yourself, you’ll unearth the hidden treasures of your life.

When a weightlifter lifts any weight for the first time in his life, he only lifts a weight half of his body weight. Then, later on, as he starts practicing more and more, and lifting more and more weights, he realizes that he could lift more weights than his actual body weights.

What does it show?

It shows that already the weightlifter has the potential of lifting more weights than his real body weights.

In the similar way, you’ve the potential of everything within you; you just need to realize it and to reinvent it yourself.



You’ve to reinvent yourself to achieve your grand success.



Always remember that nobody will care about you if you fail in your life.

If you fail in your life, it means you’re like an orphan child in this world. Nobody will come to you. You’ve nobody in this world. You’ve to live your life alone. You’ve no friends. Everybody will ignore you; disregard you, and treat you like a villain.

On the contrary, if you’re successful in your life, then everybody will flock around you. You’ll never feel alone. You’ve thousands of friends. Everybody will care about you; respect you, and treat you like a hero.

You couldn’t get grand success in your life until and unless you couldn’t reinvent yourself. This world is changing very fast and quickly. Now and then, you’ll find new changes, new transformations, and new challenges. You can’t stop anything. What was yesterday wouldn’t be same today or wouldn’t be similar in the successive days or wouldn’t be identical in the following months or wouldn’t be equal in the coming years.

Everything is changing now and then, every time, every moment, and every day. So you’ve to change yourself and reinvent yourself according to time and need in order to suit yourself in the best place in this world.

Many people failed in their lives not because they have lack of skills and talents; it is because they failed to reinvent their hidden potentials at the right time. It is like the treasure house which is lying within them, and unfortunately they wouldn’t know themselves.

Once upon a time, in a small village a beggar was lived. He had spent his entire life begging door to door in the houses of villagers. He had no place to live, so he stayed under the banyan tree outskirts the village. Many years elapsed in the same way. He became very old, and then one day he was passed away. The village folks cremated his dead body and performed all the rituals.

Then one day the village folks cut down the banyan tree and dug out the place where the beggar used to stayed. When the village folks dug out the place, they were stumbled, what they saw was a huge casket of gold coins. With that much of treasures the beggar would be the richest man in the entire village and in the entire area. But, alas, the poor beggar had spent his entire life while begging door to door in the houses of villagers.

You’ll become like a beggar if you’ll fail to reinvent yourself. You’ll always wander in your entire life without knowing your actual potentials. You’ve a tremendous treasure house within you. You’ve to reinvent it yourself.



Reinvent yourself if you want to uncover your treasure house.



Reinvent your hidden treasure house of skills and talents, because if you couldn’t reinvent yourself, then you’ll never compete in this highly competitive world. You’ll never cope up the changing things or situations or problems in your everyday life.

When you reinvent yourself, then only you’ll know the definite goals of your life; then only you’ll know the purpose of your life; then only you’ll know the missions of your life; then only you’ll fulfill your dreams into realities; then only you’ll get the great success in your life.

When you reinvent yourself, you’ll know what you’ve to do in your life. You’ll know how to live in this world. You’ll know the directions of your life. You’ll know how to get success in your life.



You can only develop yourself when you know your hidden treasures of skills and talents.

Whenever you’ll feel morally down, then this is the right time to reinvent yourself.

Whenever you’ll feel weak, then this is the right time to reinvent yourself.

Whenever you’ll feel losing your self-confidence, then this is the right time to reinvent yourself.

Whenever you’ll feel confuse, then this is the right time to reinvent yourself.

Whenever you’ll feel wandering from the path of your life, then this is the right time to reinvent yourself.

When you reinvent yourself then only you’ll know the infinite hidden skills and talents within you.

Your hidden skills and talents are the best boons of your life. You’ve every right to know these hidden treasures. And once you’ll know your hidden treasures, you’ll become the most valuable gem in this world. Then nothing is impossible for you. Everything is possible for you. Everything is achievable for you.

The gold mine is always hidden deep inside the earth. Nobody could ever see it from the above until it wouldn’t dig out.

In the same way, you too have a gold mine deep inside you, until and unless you wouldn’t dig it out, you wouldn’t know how valuable you’re. And once you’ll do this you’ll realize how much treasure house is laying within you.

To get any success in your life, first of all, you’ve to dig out your hidden skills and talents, and then work on it with full determination and zest. Then you’ll get whatever you want in your life. Your success will become your servant, and you’ll become its master.

But every time, every moment and every day you’ve to reinvent your hidden skills and talents, and then polish it and nurture it day in and day out.

Everything is within you.

You’ve a tremendous treasure house lying within you.

You can do anything in your life.

Nothing is impossible for you.

You can achieve any success in your life.

You can touch any summit in your life.

Nobody can stop you.

But you’ve to know your hidden potentials.

You’ve to reinvent yourself.

Once you’ll know your hidden skills and talents, then nobody will ever dare to stop you to reach your goal.

You’ll become the master of your destiny.

You’ll become the sole maker of your fortune.

Reinvent yourself.

Reinvent your life.

Reinvent your world.

Chapter-3

There is no action, there is no progress



We all know the Newton’s third Law: For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.

The statement means that in every interaction, there is a pair of forces acting on the two interacting objects. The size of the forces on the first object equals the size of the force on the second object.

From the Newton’s third law we can draw that in our life without action, there is no progress. So you must act to get progress in your life. When you act, then only you’ll get progress in your life, then only you’ll get success in your life.



No action, no progress and no success.



Action means your progress in your life. And progress means you’re successful in your life. Whatever you act in your life, it’ll reflect on your life, and it’ll transfer to your progress in your life, and then convert into your success.

Inaction means your degradation in your life. And degradation means you fail in your life. Ask yourself what you want in your life: action or inaction or success or failure.



Without action, you can’t think anything with your mind.

Without action, you can’t see anything with your eyes.

Without action, you can’t smell anything with your nose.

Without action, you can’t taste anything with your tongue.

Without action, you can’t chew anything with your teeth.

Without action, you can’t speak anything with your mouth.

Without action, you can’t work anything with your hands.

Without action, you can’t walk anywhere with your legs.



These actions of your life are natural. These are the ongoing process, never ending. You can’t stop these actions. However, the moment you’ll try to pause these actions of your life the moment you’ll halt your own life.

Can you live your life without action?

You never live your life without action. You’ve to act something in order to live your life. It is impossible to live your life without action. Your action is the part of your life. Your action is the root of your world where you’re standing right now. You never ever depart yourself from your action.

Right from the moment we were born in this world our action starts and ends at the last moment when we breathe last. So, action is the natural phenomenon and fundamental of our life. We never detach ourselves from our action. We all are uniformly connected with our actions. And that’s way we are existing now.

Action is your life.

Without action your life is impossible.

It is only your action which makes your life possible.

Your action gives you new movements in your life.

Your action gives you new ways in your life.

Your action gives you new purpose in your world.



Always remember that only your action guaranteed you happiness, progress, success and peace in your life. Only your action makes you a complete man in your life.



With your action you’re alive. Without action, you’re death.

A man becomes a complete man with his action.



Think for a second, if our earth stops revolving around the sun, then what will happen? Everything will become imbalance in the entire world, and our life becomes impossible on earth.

In the same fashion, the moment you stop your action your entire life and world becomes imbalance and disturb.

Action makes your life balance. And when there is a balance in your life, it means there is happiness and success in your world. However, inaction only makes your life imbalance and chaos. And when there is an imbalance and chaos in your life, it means there is unhappiness and failure in your world.

Can you live your life in imbalance?

No. You never live your life in imbalance.

Whenever you’ll fall ill, it’ll signify you that some parts of your body will not function well or will not act properly. So whenever you’ll feel weak or sick, it’ll always indicate you that your body is not doing well or in inactive mood, and you’ll need some action or you’ll need medicine.

This implies that you always need action in every moment of your life. Whenever there is slight lacking of your action there is the beginning of your weakness and sickness.



A healthy life is the sight of action. A poor life is the sight of inaction.



Your life is like a vehicle. It’ll only run on the smooth road of your balance life. You’ll never run it on the rough road of imbalance life.

Your life is like a motor bike. If you want to start it then you’ll have to kick it that means you’ll have to act on it. Then only the motor bike of your life will start zooming on the road of your progress, happiness, success and peace.

Even without an action, the king of the forest, the lion couldn’t hunt its prey. If a lion wants to hunt its prey, then it has to act. If it is simply sleeping and day-dreaming of a stout deer as its prey which will enter into its mouth itself, then it is a total foolishness.

It is only an action of a man that he could turn a mere stone into gold and a precious diamond.



Do you know how a pearl is formed inside the sea-shell from a small dew drop?

When a small dew drop stuck inside the sea shell, then with the tremendous internal actions and reactions inside the sea shell the small dew drop transforms itself into a beautiful shinning pearl after some days.

What does it exemplify to you? Think about it!



Does the miracle happen in life? Yes, miracle does happen in life. If you want to glimpse the miracles in your life, then you’ve to act every moment of your life.

You’ll never get anything simply building a magnificent castle in the air.



With your action you can do anything in your life.

You can change yourself.

You can transform yourself.

You can achieve anything in your life.



Action means energy.

Action means power.

Action means strength.



Inaction means sickness.

Inaction means weakness.

Inaction means idleness.



Where there is action, there is also reaction. On the other hand, where there is no action, there is no reaction. And when both action and reaction are absence in your life, then your life will turn into a void and meaningless.

In the stagnant water you’ll only find the aquatic lives which are living either inside the mud or inside the holes, like frogs, crabs, worms, and snakes. You’ll never see the freely swimming fishes and other aquatic animals there. There are no actions and movements in the stagnant water, and one day it’ll dry up with the heat of the sun, and kill all the aquatic lives living there.

In the same way, you couldn’t live your life in the stagnant state. You need actions and movements in your life so that you could swim in the ocean of this world and gather the sea shells containing pearls, and reach to the next shore of your life.

In every stage of your life, you need action to progress in your life. Without action, you couldn’t move even a plate of bread inside your mouth. Without action, you’ll remain starve. Without action, your life is like a tree without leaves.

In the plant life, the roots are the most important components. The survival of a plant depends on the actions of the roots, because they are the carrier of water, minerals and manures from the underground soil. If the roots stop their actions of carrying water, minerals and manures from the underground soil; the plant will die instantly the moment the roots stop their actions.

In the similar way, your actions are the roots of your life which guide you towards the road of progress and success in your life. It is only your action which holds you every time whenever you’re about to tumble down in your life. If you’ll stop your actions the moment you’ll witness the sight of doom in your life. On the other hand, once you’ll resume your actions you’ll view the glimpses of your bright progress and grand success right way.

Do you know why some people achieve great progress and success in their lives and some people achieve nothing in their entire lives?

The people those who achieve great progress and success in their lives are really very hard-working people. They are the people of action. Their lives are full of actions and excitements. They believe in their hard works and live in their actions.

On the other hand, the people those who achieve nothing in their entire lives are lazy and inactive people. They are the people of inaction. They are only day-dreamers. Their lives are full of idleness and boredoms. They believe in their lucks and live in their dream worlds.

Where do you find yourself in these two categories of people?

Find out your answer.

Always remember that the way you act the way you become in your life.



Action means your life.

Inaction means your death.

You can’t live without action.



You’ve to act in order to live your life.

Your action is the only source of your happiness.

Your action is the only source of your progress.

Your action is the only source of your success.

Your action is the only source of your peace.



No action, there is no happiness.

No action, there is no progress.

No action, there is no success.

No action, there is no peace.



It is only your action which gives you the meaning of your life.

It is only your action which shows you the purpose of your life.

You’re born to act.

But not to remain idle.

Your action brings you happiness and prosperities in your life.

But your inaction brings you unhappiness and adversities in your life.

Every living creature on this earth does some action in order to exist.

You’re existed in this world because you’re doing some action in your life.



---***---





















The 3rd success principle to remember is:



Where there is action, there is progress and there is success in your life.

Where there is no action, there is no progress and there is no success.



---***---









Think and Act





You may never know what results come from your action. But if you do nothing, there will be no result.

---Mahatma Gandhi



Action is the foundational key to all success.

---Pablo Picasso



Don’t talk, act. Don’t say, show. Don’t promise, prove.



The distance between your dreams and reality is called action.



The path to success is to take massive determined action.

---Tony Robbins

Chapter-4

Persistence guides you to win



Your life is like a race and if you want to win this race of your life then you’ve to work hard with persistence. Without persistence in your work you’ll never succeed in anything. Without persistence, you just forget your wishes, forget your desires, forget your dreams, and forget your aims and objectives, because without persistence you can’t do anything in your life.

To achieve anything in your life you need persistence. You need persistence in your thoughts. You need persistence in your ideas. You need persistence in your plans. You need persistence in your decisions. You need persistence in your actions. You need persistence in your works. You need persistence whatever you do in your life. When you’ve persistence in everything, then only you’ll get grand success in your life.



Persistence is the only key factor to achieve anything in your life.



Where there is no persistence, there is no work and there is no success.

Without persistence in your work you never expect anything.

It is only your persistence which guaranteed you grand success in your life.

Persistence means:

Perseverance

Determination

Doggedness

Diligence

Resolution



Persistence is the combination of these five strong qualities. That means if you’ve persistence then automatically all these five strong qualities (perseverance, determination, doggedness, diligence, and resolution) would be emerged out from you.



Persistence means to stick on your chosen goal till the end until you wouldn’t get what you’ve desired or dreamed for.



Without persistence, you’ll become weak and worthless. Without persistence, you’ll never witness the bright sight of your victory. Without persistence, you’ll never perceive the shinning glory of your life.



Without persistence nothing is possible.

Without persistence your life is impossible.



Without persistence, you’ll never fulfill your dreams into your realities.

Persistence means to work continuously until you wouldn’t get your desire result.



Persistence means never give up.

It is only your persistence which makes you realize your hidden talents and skills.



One day a man was told by a holy saint that there was a place at the mount of the hill where the abundant gold treasures were hidden under the earth. But he had to dig out a deep tunnel in order to unearth the gold treasures from there.

The man was overwhelmed with joy. He instantly got ready, and went at the mount of the hill, and started digging, day and night, tirelessly. Many days and many months were passed, he had dug out a long tunnel at the mount of the hill, but unfortunately, he couldn’t get a glimpse of any gold treasure inside there.

The man was dejected. He thought that he was fooled by a holy saint. He lost his hope and confidence. He was out of patience, and finally he gave up his persistence.

Then, one day a shepherd came inside the tunnel coincidentally while rearing his herd of sheep at the mount of the hill. He went inside the deep tunnel and strolled there, and reached to the end of the tunnel. When he reached to the end of the tunnel, he glimpsed a sight of a glittering stone. He was overjoyed. He immediately dug out the rest of the tunnel and found the abundant gold treasures.

Likewise, in the above story, there are many people who worked hard with persistence, but due to lack of their self-believe, self-confidence and patience, they give up their work when they are much closed to reach their gold treasures.

Whatever you do in your life, always remember that with your persistence work, you too need firm self-believe, self-confidence and patience. Then only you’ll reach your final goal, and become a successful man in your life.



With persistence a weak man becomes a strong man.

With persistence a strong man becomes stronger.

With persistence an ordinary man becomes an extra ordinary man.

With persistence an imperfect man becomes a perfect man.

With persistence, you can become master in your work.

With your persistence you can unlock your closed fortune.



If you ever lost in the way of success, then it is only your sheer persistence which guides you to move ahead.



You couldn’t achieve anything in your life without persistence. But if you’ve a quality of persistence within you, then you’ve nothing to worry, because you can achieve anything. Everything is possible for you. Your hands will become capable to do anything for you. Your legs will become capable to move you everywhere. You can easily grab whatever you want in your life with your two hands. You can easily move wherever you want to go with two legs. You can cover every milestone of success in your life.

Think for a second, if our heart stops beating for a micro second, what will happen to us? No doubt, within a micro second we’ll die with heart strokes. But it is our heart which beats persistently and non-stop to keep us alive.

Think for a second, if the blood circulation of our body stops suddenly, what will happen to us? No doubt, within few seconds we’ll die with the choking of blood vessels. But our blood circulation is functioning persistently to keep us alive.

Think for a second, if our breathing nostrils stop abruptly, what will happen to us? No doubt, we’ll die in suffocations within few seconds. But our nostrils are breathing persistently to keep us alive.



Persistence is the natural order.

It is the fundamental law of our life.

Without it nobody could live in this world.



Whatever you see around you like car, motor, houses, big buildings, electric goods and gadgets, computer, robots, airplane, aircraft, rockets and spaceship, all are the products of man’s die hard persistence.

Before the 18th century, it was impossible for a man to reach into the space. It was quite impossible to think or imagine or it was beyond our reach, we have no idea what things exactly exist in the space or outer space.

But our great scientists didn’t give up. They were focused and stuck to their great experiments. They had persistently worked harder and harder, and then in the beginning of 19th century, they had invented rockets, space shuttles and spaceships, and reached into the space as well as in the outer space, discovering all the mysteries of space, finding solar systems, milky way’s and other celestial bodies of our universe.

These inventions and discoveries of rockets, space shuttles, spaceships, solar system, Milky Way’s and celestial bodies by our great scientists imply is that nothing is impossible in this world if we work persistently in our chosen goals or missions with one single- minded.

Everything is possible with our persistence. With our continuous efforts and persistence we can invent or discover anything in our life. Nothing is beyond our reach. We can reach anywhere. We can decipher anything in this world.



Your persistence is the only source of energy to ignite your success.



If there is persistence there is your success.

If there is no persistence there is only your failure.

There is a great power in your persistence.



Have you seen a stone cutter by the roadside, breaking a giant boulder with his small hammer?

If you ever see a stone cutter by the roadside, you’ll always see a heap of broken pieces of stones beside him.

How could a stone cutter break a giant boulder into small pieces of stones with his small hammer? Could he break a giant boulder in just one stroke with his small hammer? No.

A stone cutter couldn’t break a giant boulder into small pieces of stones with his first stroke. He has to strike again and again. Ten times. One hundred times. One thousand times. Countless number of times. He has to strike persistently over again and again. Then finally it’ll break up with just one final stroke.

What does it signify you?

It signifies you that no matter how tough or how giant your situation or problem will be, you’ll able to overcome with your sheer efforts and persistence.

Consider yourself as a stone cutter, and strike again and again, tirelessly in your chosen goals with single-minded, and then go ahead, your D-day will finally bang on you.

If you see a flowing river over the deep gorges, then you would see how it cuts the hard rocks and formed its ways through it. It is only possible because of the persistence work of a river. A river is always flowing slowly, but it continuously cuts the hard surface of rocks with its sharp waves and currents, and gradually it creates its own ways after many long days, weeks, months, and years. And finally it reaches to its ultimate destiny into the heart of the vast ocean.

Be like a river and cut your own ways in the midst of hard rock like situations and problems in your life. Believe yourself. Believe your capabilities. Work persistently until you wouldn’t reach your final destiny. You’ll definitely get a hundred percent successes in your life.



The Taj Mahal is one of the seven wonders in the world. Do you know how many years it took to complete the entire construction, and how many labourers were worked?

To complete the entire Taj Mahal, it took more than twenty years, and more than twenty thousand labourers were worked. The labourers were worked day and night, non-stop, tirelessly for more than twenty years until the entire construction of the Taj Mahal was not completed.

From the number of years it took and the number of labourers worked to complete the majestic Taj Mahal, you would clearly imagine, how difficult work to complete it at that period time. But with continuous efforts and persistence, the labourers of that time proved that.

To achieve your grand success, you’ve to invest your time, you’ve to invest your hard work, you’ve to invest your caliber, and at the same time you’ve to work with persistence, day and night until you wouldn’t accomplish your ultimate goal.

A scientist successfully invented his invention only because of his persistence.

A student would clear his examination only when he would study his lessons persistently.

The old fossils are formed into coal and petroleum due to persistence heat and pressure deep under the earth for millions of years.

A rich man wouldn’t become a rich man only in few days or in few months or in few years, or merely day-dreaming or just by staying idle, doing nothing, but he has to work persistently with his single- minded goal.



Behind every big success and grand glory of a man, there is a tremendous efforts and persistence.



Persistence is the only key to get your success.

Your persistence is the magical charm of your triumph.



With your persistence you can turn anything in your favour.

With your persistence you can do anything in your life.

With your persistence you can turn impossible into possible.

With your persistence you can achieve anything in your life.



It is your persistence which makes you master in your work.

It is your persistence which makes you perfect in your work.

It is your persistence which makes you excellent in your work.

It is your persistence which makes you complete in your life.



Persistence wears out your weaknesses and negative energies from your mind, body and soul.



It is not your good fortune which favours you, but it is the work of your persistence.





Let’s take an example, take a light string and rub it on any hard surface or object say, an iron bar or a hard rock every day. After a few days, you’ll notice some marks on the hard surface where you would rub persistently with a light string.

What does it tell you?

It tells you that with your persistence work you can do impossible thing in your life.



If you see or observe minutely around your surroundings, then you’ll always find many tiny creatures like ant, bee, butterfly, small bird and many other living creatures. They are always working persistently on their daily needs without getting tired or retired. They never give up. They do their best works persistently no matter whatsoever happens.

If you see a small ant, then you’ll see it is always moving for foods; if you see a small bee, then you’ll see it is always hovering over the blooming flowers for honey; if you see a small butterfly, then you’ll see it is always flattering its wings around the flowers for nectars; and if you see a small bird, then you’ll see it is always flying hither and thither to feed itself.



Your persistence work is your true guide to go ahead in your life. Whatever you want to achieve, whether name or fame or success or glory, you’ve to work with persistence, then only you’ll accomplish the great success in your life.



Your persistence never pushes you into the door of downfall,

But it’ll always hold you firmly,

It’ll always lead you to the door of rising great success.





Persistence is the natural order.

It is the fundamental law of our life.

Without it nobody could live in this world.

All the living creatures on this earth are bound or abided by persistence.

Nobody could deny it or alter it.

We all are bound and abided to work with persistence to live in this world.

Persistence is the only key to unlock your ceased fortune.

With persistence, you could achieve anything in your life.

Chapter-5

Focus is everything

Focus means concentration of all your six sense at one centre point.



A farmer never grows his crops in his field if he is not focused on his farming.

A student never clears his exam if he is not focused on his studies.

A businessman never runs his business properly if he is not focused on his trade.

A scientist never invents new inventions if he is not focused on his experiments.

A sport man never wins any championship or tournament on his life if he is not focused on his game.

A singer never sings well in his life if he is not focused on his singing.

A composer never composes hit songs in his life if he is not focused on his compositions.

An actor never acts brilliant character in his life if he is not focused on his acting.

In every field, focus is the main criteria of success and growth.

Your focus is the guiding principle of your grand success.



Focus is your strength.

Focus is your energy.

Focus is your power.

Focus is your driving force.

Focus means your success.



If you focus on your life, you’ll achieve whatever you want. Nothing is impossible for you to achieve anything in your life. Your success always demands complete focus from you. If you’re focused on your goal, then nobody could ever dare to divert you from the path of your success. You’ll reach your goal a hundred and one percent. And there is no benefit of doubt about it.

A focused man never diverts his mind; he will always focus his mind on his goal. On the other hand, a man of lack of focus will always divert his mind, and he will never achieve anything in his life.

A man never lives his life happily if he is not focused on his life. He will never do anything in his life. His life is like a fallen dry leaf which has no direction.

In every walk of life you need your focus. You’ve to focus on your life. You’ve to focus on your world. You’ve to focus on your family. You’ve to focus on your relationships. You’ve to focus on your work. Then only you’ll prosper in your life and live happily and peacefully.

If you’re focused on your success, then you’ll never get time to divert your mind anywhere. However, if you’re not focused on your success, then you’ll get enough time to divert your mind everywhere and anytime.



Focus makes you trained and disciplined in your life, and give you the right direction.



If you’re focused, you’ll definitely get your success. If you’re not focused, you’ll surely witness your failure. It is like the way you do your job the way you accomplish. Your focus always plays an important role in your success. Your focus is like your guide. It never allows you to move away from your destiny. It always leads you to the right path of your success, and halts you from the downfall of your failure.

If you switch on the torch light in any dark room, what will you see? You’ll always see its lights falling only in the centre of the focus light without any diversion, and whatever the things are falling under it, will be clearly visible.

Your focus is like the torch light of your life. You’ve to switch on it. In the darkness of your failure, it’s only your focus which will illuminate or mitigate your darkness, and glimpses you the glorious brightness of your success.



Think for a second, if the rays of sun are not focusing on our earth, and diverting in some other planets.

What will happen?

There will be no existence of life in our earth.

Focus is the natural phenomenon. Everything is possible if you’re focused on your life. It is your focus which assists you to move ahead in your life. Your focus is the pathfinder of your success.

Focus is very significant for you if you want to achieve success in your life. Without total focus on your goal, there will be a hundred percent chances of diversion in your life. And you will never achieve anything in your life.



Focus your mind, body and soul only on your chosen goal.

Forget the other insignificant things in your life.

Go for it!

Nobody will ever dare to obstruct you on the path of your success.



If you’ll focus on good things, you’ll always get good things. On the other hand, if you’ll focus on bad things, you’ll always get bad things. It is like as you sow as you reap.

If you’ll focus on your success, you’ll always attain your success and satisfaction. If you’re not focus on your success, you’ll always face failure and disappointments.

Your focus is the driving force of your life. Your focus guaranteed you your grand success. Therefore, it depends on you where you want to focus yourself in your life.



If you’re driving a car or a bike or any other vehicle, what will you do while driving?

You’ll always focus on the road ahead, holding the stirring wheel of a car or handle of a bike so that you could drive smoothly and control your car or bike.

On the contrary, what will happen if you’re not focused on the road ahead? The moment you’ll lose your focus from the road, you’ll lose your balance, and you’ll bump your car or bike against some other in-coming vehicles.

In the same fashion, if you’re focused on the road of your life, then you can drive your vehicle of life smoothly and safely for many long distances, and ultimately you’ll reach to your chosen destiny. And if you’re not focused on the road of your life, then definitely you’ll never reach anywhere, and you’ll lose in the middle of the crossroad.



Your focus is always directly proportional to your success.



When you’re focused on your life, all your energy and power are emerged out from you, and you can do anything in your life. You’ll gain tremendous strength and courage to do anything in your life. You’ll become the store house of energy and power. And you’ll excel and shine in your life.

When an earthquake is occurred in any place, then the maximum damage is always found in its epicenter that means at the focus point. What does it tell us? It tells us that wherever the focus is more there is always maximum intensity of force and power. In the similar way, the more you focus yourself on your aims and objectives, the more you perceive the chance to attain your grand success.



The sunlight burns a piece of paper when it is focused on a magnifying glass.

What does it show you?

It shows you that if you keep your focus on anything, then it’ll compel to be yours at any cost. Nobody will snatch it from you. You’ll become its sole master eventually.

This shows you the power of focus.



There is a tremendous power in your focus.



When you focus on your life, you’ll become like the rays of sun.

You can burn down every challenge of your life.

Your skills and talents will only grow and develop when you’re focused on your life; otherwise all your qualities are meaningless and worthless, and die prematurely.

It is only your focus which transforms your natural aptitudes into new forms and dimensions, prepares you, and leads you in the direction of excellence.

Many people failed in their lives even though they have equal skills and talents like any other successful people. But they failed.

Why?

It is only because they never focus on their lives. They allow their minds to roam like untamed animal.



Your life is like a camera. You’ve to open the lens of your life and then give one hundred percent focus on it. Then only you’ll get the clear picture of your beautiful life and wonderful world.



If you want to focus on your life, then forget the other unnecessary things. Focus on your top priority. Focus on your main aims and objectives of your life. Never heed any other things. Then go for it. Don’t try to divert your mind. You’ll surely achieve your goal.

When a skilful archer set his target, he only focuses on his target. He always keeps his mind and body steady, and keeps his nerves cool and calm. He controls everything utterly. Even he holds his breath for a moment in order to focus his eyes on his target. And when everything will be set at the right place, and when he assures himself, then finally he releases the arrow from his bow on the target. And his shooting arrow never misses its target. It’ll bang straight on the bull’s eye.



Be like a skilful archer in your life.

Set your target and focus on it.

You’ll never miss the target of your life.



Decide your own field where you want to focus on your life, and then give your mind, heart and soul wholeheartedly. And go for it. Give your hundred and one percent efforts. Success will be always yours.

If you’re focused on your goals of life, you’ll see your grand success and glory even from a distance, and even in the darkness of your life. You’ll never become dishearten in your life. You’ll get clear glimpses of your triumph, and attain it no matter whatsoever happens.

Always remember that if you’re not focused on your life, then you’ll always wander in your life aimlessly, and live your life like a nomad.





Your focus is one of the key factors of your grand success.

Your focus opens your closed mind.

Your focus awakes your dizzy heart.

Your focus salvages your soul.

Your focus gives you new directions in your life.

Your focus enlightens your dark world.



If you want grand success in your life,

Then focus on your chosen goal.

Never divert your mind, heart and soul.

Only focus on your aims and objectives.

You’ll always witness your bright success and glory.



Only focus on your goals.

Only focus on your life.

Only focus on your world.

Your success is always decided by your focus.

Chapter-6

Failure is important



Failure is the part of your life. If there is life, there is failure too. If there is life, there is success too. You never deny it. And nobody could ever deny it either. Success and failure are like the two sides of a same coin, where there is success there is failure too. It is like pass and parcel. We can say like day and night.



Enjoy your failure like you enjoy your success.

Welcome it with your open mind and heart.

Treat it as your teacher.

Learn from it.

Improve yourself.

But, never allow it to rule you.

Tame it as your galloping horse.

And march ahead towards the road of your success.



It is very important to face failure in your life before you taste the sweetness of your grand success. It’ll give you more happiness and contentment. However, if you get the sweet taste of success in the very first instance, then you might not face the bitter encounter of your failure later on.

If you face failure in your initial attempt, then you’ll get enough time to adjust and acclimatize yourself and you too able to cope up every harsh situation of your failure. You could prepare yourself right from the very beginning; you could transform yourself from good to better, and from better to best. You’ll become a master of your chosen goals. You’ll able to judge your strong points and weak point. You’ll know everything about yourself. You could awake your hidden skills and talents. You could examine yourself thoroughly. You’ll become more cautious. You’ll become more confident. You’ll gain more self-esteem. You’ll become more discipline. You’ll become more responsible. You’ll grow and mature yourself. You’ll become stronger than what you were in your previous attempts. You’ll become more courageous and valiant than what you were in your past. You’ll make your new plan, different moves and strategies to face the next level of your challenges.

The best part of your failure is to learn new lessons and gain new experiences from it, and improve yourself further.

If you fear of failure, you’ll never do anything right in your life. You’ll never learn anything in your life. And you’ll always remain lacking behind of everybody and everything.

If you fear of failure, it means you fear to try something new. And when you never try to do new things in your life; you’ll never achieve anything in your life; you’ll never change your life; you’ll never bring differences in your life; and you’ll never know the beauties of your life and the thrilling mysteries of this world.

Learn to accept your failures as your victory.

Take it as your learning experience.
