  • Hope is the power that gives a person the confidence to step out and try.

  • Most of us would be upset if we were accused of being ‘silly,’ yet it comes from the old English word ‘seilig’ and its literal definition is ‘to be blessed, happy, healthy and prosperous’.

  • When you give a man a dole ( ख़ैरात करना, दीनवत्सलता करना  ) you deny him his dignity, and when you deny him his dignity you rob ( लूटना  ) him his destiny.
  • Little men with little minds and little imaginations go through life in little ruts, smugly resting all changes which would jar their little worlds.

  • Positive thinking will let you use the ability which you have, and that is awesome.

I can’t stand to hear some gung-ho (unthinkingly enthusiastic and eager, especially about taking part in fighting or warfare, गुंगहो  ) individual say that with positive thinking you can just do ‘anything’. If you think about that one for a moment, you recognise the absurdity ( अर्थहीनता  ) of it.

  • I don’t care how much power, brilliance or energy you have, if you don’t harness it and  focus it on a specific subject, and hold it there, you’re never going to accomplish as much as your ability warrants.
  • You are the only person on earth who can use your ability.
  • Far too many people have no idea of what they can do. Because all they have been told is what they can’t do.
  • Dont count the things you do, do the things that count.
  • We cannot start over, but we can begin now, and make a new beginning.
  • Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.

  • You can start from where you are with what you’ve got and go to where it is you want to go.
  • Where you start is not really as important as where you finish.
  • You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.
  • Individuals score points, but teams win games. This is true in athletic events and in life. If you make it in life, your “team” of parents, teachers, ministers, etc., will have played a major role in your success.
  • Why settle for the ‘get by’ when in the long run the good costs less?
  • You are the determining factor in your future. Don’t let others be your judge and jury with their pity and negative thoughts or feeling. Know that you are here for a reason. Recognize, develop, and use the resources you do have. Others see the surface; you know your heart.
  • A goal properly set is halfway reached.
  • If you want to reach a goal, you must ‘see the reaching’ in your own mind before you actually arrive at your goal.
  • What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.
  • Goals enable you to do more for yourself and others too.
  • Goals don’t care who has them.
  • The real benefit of having goals is what you become by reaching them.
  • You can’t hit a target you cannot see, and you cannot see a target you do not have.
  • When you set goals, something inside of you starts saying, ‘Let’s go, let’s go,’ and ceilings start to move up.
  • The basic goal-reaching principle is to understand that you go as far as you can see, and when you get there, you will be able to see farther.
  • The great majority of people are “wandering generalities” rather than “meaningful specifics”. The fact is that you can’t bit a target that you can’t see. If you don’t know where you are going, you will probably end up somewhere else. You have to have goals.
  • But it wasn’t until I wrote it down; put a date on it; listed the obstacles I had to overcome; identified the people, the groups, the organizations I needed to work with; spelled out a plan of action; set that time limit in there; and identified all of the benefits to me. It was only when I did that, that the goal became a reality — and I lost the weight.
  • If you aim at nothing, you will hit it every time.
  • There was joy in getting his blood pressure down, joy in climbing Mount Everest, joy in reaching the summits of six more of the world’s highest mountains, joy in building a profitable company providing houses that people could turn into homes, joy in learning to fly.

That’s the true and ultimate purpose of setting and reaching goals.

  • You cannot make it as a wandering generality. You must become a meaningful specific.
  • I am constantly amazed that owners and managers of all businesses don’t train their people to call the person who pays by credit card by name. It definitely makes the customer feel good and will be a factor in bringing them back to your place of business.
  • A manager is not a person who can do the work better than his men; he is a person who can get his men to do the work better than he can.
  • It will be disastrous when a leader or manager shows up with one attitude one day and treats people with a different attitude the next day.
  • Kids instinctively know – although they will argue to the contrary – that they really are not mature enough to make good decisions on some important issues.
  • I am convinced that what kids need today are parents – not buddies (a close friend, मित्र  ). They need someone who will exercise mature judgement.
  • When you give directives (an official or authoritative instruction, आदेश  ) to a child, especially a teenager, you must consider the nature of your child.
  • Be there for your kids. Later, when you need them, they will be there for you.
  • When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
  • Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they’ve never failed to imitate them.
  • When there is no job related stress, you are more aware of your mate and children, if you are a parent.
  • A lot of people quit looking for work as soon as they find a job.
  • You build a successful career regardless of your field of endeavour by the dozens of little things you do on and off the job.
  • The only thing worse than training employees and losing them is to not train them and keep them.
  • If you treat your wife like a thoroughbred ( pure, शुद्धरक्त, निष्कलंक  ), you will never end up with a nag [annoy or irritate (a person) with persistent fault-finding or continuous urging].
  • Husbands and wives, first be faithful to each other. Second, keep the romance going all of your life by courting each other everyday.
  • Many people spend more time in planning the wedding than they do in planning the marriage.
  • Many marriages would be better if the husband and the wife clearly understood that they are on the same side.
  • Husbands and wives, have fun with each other. I am convinced it makes all the difference in the world.
  • Countless marriages land on the rocks of divorce because unhealthy people marry thinking that marriage, or their spouse, will make them whole. Wrong. If you’re not a healthy single person you won’t be a healthy married person.
  • The one thing coaches can not tolerate, is the individual who grows arrogant because he excelled at a lower level and believes he has nothing else to learn.
  • Athletic skills are acquired over a long period of time and after countless hours of practice.

  • Put all excuses aside and remember this: You are capable.
  • The greatest of all mistakes is to do nothing because you think you can only do a little.
  • Most people consider me an optimist because I laughingly state that I would take my last two dollars and buy a money belt.
  • I have got to confess I am a pragmatic (dealing with things sensibly and realistically in a way that is based on practical rather than theoretical considerations, व्यावहारिक  ) optimist myself.
  • With my past forgiven, my present secure, and my future irrevocably ( not able to be changed, reversed, or recovered, बेबदल, स्थिर  ) guaranteed, why shouldn’t I be enthusiastically optimistic?
  • If God would have wanted us to live in a permissive society, He would have given us Ten Suggestions and not Ten Commandments.
  • Courage is on display everyday, and only the courageous wring [squeeze and twist (something) to force liquid from it, मरोड़ना, निचोडना  ] the most out of life.
  • Many people who want to be great are not willing to do the work to make it possible.
  • Duty makes us do things well, but love makes us do them beautifully.
  • Take one cup of love, two cups of loyalty, three cups of forgiveness, four quarts of faith and one barrel of laughter. Take love and loyalty and mix them thoroughly with faith; blend with tenderness, kindness and understanding. Add friendship and hope. Sprinkle abundantly with laughter. Bake it with sunshine. Wrap it regularly with lots of hugs. Serve generous helpings daily.
  • To be loved, be lovable.
  • To a child love is spelled T-I-M-E.
  • Like sterling silver, love will tarnish unless it is polished with daily applications of interest, involvement, and expressions of love.
  • The major difference between the big shot and the little shot is this: the big shot is just a little shot who kept on shooting.
  • Play the game for more than you can afford to lose, only then will you learn the game.
  • If you are going to be successful, you must develop persistence (firm or obstinate continuance in a course of action in spite of difficulty or opposition, हठ, दृढ़ता  ). How do you do that? It is not easily condensed in one simple statement, but one thing you can be sure of is that you must define your purpose.
  • I hear and forget. I see and hear and I remember. However, when I see, hear and do, I understand and succeed.
  • You can succeed at almost anything for which you have unbridled (uncontrolled, निरंकुश, बेलगाम  ) enthusiasm.
  • You already have every characteristic necessary for success if you recognise, claim, develop and use them.
  • Success occurs when opportunity meets preparation.
  • Success is not a destination, it is a journey.
  • Try to look at your weakness and convert it into your strength. That is success.
  • You can not climb the ladder of success dressed in the costume of failure.
  • Success is the maximum utilisation of the ability that you have.
  • Success is dependent upon glands – the sweat glands.
  • True success has more components than one sentence or idea can contain.
  • Success must never be measured by how much money you have.
  • Practice is simply preparation for success.
  • Success is not measured by what you do compared to what others do. It is measured by what you do with the ability God gave you.
  • The foundation stones for a balanced success are honesty, character, integrity (the state of being whole and undivided, संपूर्णता, समग्रता  ), faith, love and loyalty.
  • You do not pay the price of success, you enjoy the price of success.
  • I believe that being successful means having a balance of success stories across the many areas of your life. You can’t truly be considered successful in your business life if your home life is in shambles (a state of total disorder, गड़बड़, खंडहर, कलिया बाजार  ).
  • The successful business executive can handle challenges and solve problems at a remarkable clip.
  • Success is the doing, not the getting; in the trying, not the triumph. Success is a personal standard, reaching for the highest that is in us, becoming all that we can be. If we do our best, we are a success.
  • I believe success is achieved by ordinary people with Extraordinary Determination.
  • Success means doing the best we can with what we have. Success is the doing, not the getting; in the trying, not the triumph. Success is a personal standard, reaching for the highest that is in us, becoming all that we can be.

  • The real opportunity for success lies within the person and not in the job.
  • The little things in life frequently make the difference in success and failure.
  • Don’t be distracted by criticism. Remember, the only taste of success some people have is when they take a bite out of you.
  • If you don’t pay the price for success, you’ll pay the price for failure.
  • The chief cause of failure and unhappiness is trading what you want most for what you want right now.
  • Failure is a detour (a long or roundabout route taken to avoid something or to visit somewhere along the way, चक्करदार रास्ता  ), not a dead-end street.
  • Remember that failure is an event, not a person.
  • Make failure your teacher, not your undertaker.
  • Most people who fail in their dream fail not from lack of ability but from lack of commitment ( the state or quality of being dedicated to a cause, activity, etc, प्रतिबद्धता  ).
  • Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.
  • If you learn from defeat, you have not really lost.
  • You don’t drown by falling into water. You only drown if you stay there.
  • It is not how far you fall, but how high you bounce that counts.
  • One of the main reasons people fail to reach their full potential is because they are unwilling to risk anything. They are fearful of losing, failing, or getting hurt and just want to do the things they believe will keep them safe.

  • Sometimes adversity is what you need to face in order to become successful.
  • Fortunately, problems are an everyday part of our life. Consider this : If there were no problems, most of us would be unemployed.
  • Problem-solving becomes a very important part of our makeup as we grow into maturity or move up the corporate ladder.
  • The first step in solving a problem is to recognise that it does exist.
  • The problem is not getting rid of fear, but using it properly.
  • Lack of direction, not lack of time, is the problem. We all have twenty-four hour days.
  • Problems—God’s method of revealing himself to anyone who is interested.
  • When you are tough on yourself, life is going to be infinitely easier on you.

  • It is absolutely true that unless you can instill discipline upon yourself, you will never be able to lead others.
  • We need to understand the difference between discipline and punishment. Punishment is what you do to someone, discipline is what you do for someone.
  • Personal discipline, when it becomes a way of life in our personal, family, and career lives, will enable us to do some incredible things.
  • One of the most difficult challenges we face while striving to achieve our goals is the constant need to discipline ourselves to do what we need to do.
  • How happy a person is depends upon the depth of his gratitude (the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness, आभार, कृतज्ञता, एहसानमंदी  ). You will notice at once that the unhappy person has little gratitude toward life, other people and God.
  • The greatest source of happiness is the ability to be grateful at all times.
  • Gratitude is the healthiest of all human emotions. The more you express gratitude for what you have, the more likely you will have even more to express gratitude for.
  • Be grateful for what you have, and stop complaining – it bores everybody else, does you no good, and doesn’t solve any problems.
  • Look back in forgiveness, forward in hope down in compassion and up with gratitude.
  • Take time to be kind and to say ‘Thank you’.
  • Send out a cheerful positive greeting, and most of the time you will get back a cheerful, positive greeting. It is also true that if you send out a negative greeting, you will, in most cases, get back a negative greeting.
  • Whether it is eight o’clock in the morning or eight o’clock at night, I always try to greet others before they have a chance to speak to me.
  • Isn’t it amazing how much stuff we get done the day before vacation ?
  • Chance made us sisters. Hearts made us friends.
  • The young athlete who aspires to greatness, generally speaking, learns a number of things from several different coaches. The first one taught him the fundamentals, the second one instilled discipline in him and taught him more of the techniques that must be mastered to excel.
  • We do not stop working and playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop working and playing.
  • You never know when a moment and a few sincere words can have an impact on life.
  • You never know when one kind act, or one word of encouragement, can change a life forever.
  • The right quote can inspire people to change their ways.
  • How you get up in the morning will play a big part in how high you go up in life.
  • When you catch a glimpse of your potential, that is when passion is born.
  • It is not the situation, but whether we react negative or respond positive to the situation, that is important.
  • You can not tailor-make the situations in life but you can tailor-make the attitudes to fit those situations.
  • There are seldom, if ever, any hopeless situations, but there are many people who lose hope in the face of some situations.
  • Always remember that your present situation is not your final destination. The best is yet to come.
  • There are no traffic jams on the extra mile.
  • If you go looking for a friend, you’re going to find they’re very scarce. If you go out to be a friend, you will find them everywhere.
  • Confidence is going after Moby Dick in a rowboat and taking tartar sauce with you.
  • And if you’ve got the wrong plans, I don’t care how many positive qualities you’ve got, you’re going to end up in the wrong place.
  • A plan is always successful if the plan is good.
  • If you don’t plan your time, someone else will help you waste it.
  • If you pay that price daily by planning and preparing and working to become the right kind of person, then you can legitimately (lawfully, वैध तरीके से  ) expect to have all that life has to offer.
  • If your watch is slow by just four minutes, that is not much – unless you have been warned that if you are even one minute late ever again, you will be fired. Then four minutes make a big difference.
  • Time can be an ally or an enemy. What it becomes depends entirely upon you, your goals and your determination to use every available minute.
  • Now is the best time you will ever have in life to get ahead.
  • Time well spent results in more money to spend, more money to save, and more time to vacation.
  • Spend time with those you love. One of these days you will say either “I wish I had” or “I am glad I did”.
  • We all prospect (search a person regarded as likely to succeed or as a potential customer, client, etc.) and don’t even know we are doing it. When you start the dating process, you are actually prospecting for the person you want to marry. When you are interviewing employees, you are prospecting for someone who will best fit your needs.
  • Research indicates that employees have three prime needs : Interesting work, recognition for doing a good job, and being let in on things that are going on in the company.
  • A productive employee who is kept busy working at his or her job is far more likely to be happy at that job and less likely to look for employment elsewhere.
  • Being productive gives people a sense of satisfaction and fulfilment that loafing (idle one’s time away, typically by aimless wandering or loitering, आवारगी , वृथा समय नष्ट करना  ) never can.
  • Be careful not to compromise what you want most for what you want now.
  • Your understanding of what you read and hear is, to a very large degree, determined by your vocabulary (the body of words used in a particular language, शब्दभंडार  ). So, improve your vocabulary daily.
  • All one needs to do is – read books, magazines, research & internet – and pay attention to the influencers in their lives to discover the myriad (countless or extremely great in number, असंख्य, बेशुमार  ) people of strong moral character who have and still are making positive, meaningful contributions and differences in our world.
  • Reading has been the fuel of my motivation : it has changed the direction in which I have travelled, and it has enhanced my creative imagination more than any other activity I have ever pursued.
  • A poet stated it more succinctly when he wrote, “I hear and forget. I see and hear and I remember. However, when I see, hear and do, I understand and succeed.” Interestingly enough, you will discover that when you read this book a second time, you will get more thoughts and more ideas than you did the first time. This is especially true if you read a few minutes every day before you start your day’s activities and just before you go to sleep.
  • I am a constant learner. You need to be a constant student because things change and you have to change and grow. And I emphasize the word ‘grow’.
  • Individuals who keep growing in knowledge are the ones who succeed.
  • Champions invariably have fervent (having or displaying a passionate intensity) philosophical beliefs. Philosophy, in its simplest terms, means the ‘love of wisdom’.
  • I read the paper everyday and the Bible everyday; that way I know what both sides are up to.
  • I seldom read anything that is not because I want to invest my time wisely in the things that will improve my life. Don’t misunderstand; there is nothing wrong with reading purely for the joy of it. Novels have their place, but biographies of famous men and women contain information that can change lives.
  • I read for the ‘ah-ha’s, the information that makes a light bulb go off in my mind. I want to put information in my mind that is going to be the most beneficial to me, my family and my fellow man – financially, morally, spiritually, and emotionally.
  • Solomon said if you want to be wise you run with the wise; if you want to be a fool, you run with fools.
  • New information make new and fresh ideas possible.
  • The result of information overload is usually distraction, and it dilutes your focus and takes you off your game.
  • You are who you are and what you are because of what has gone into your mind. You can change who you are and what you are by changing what goes into your mind.
  • Until you are happy with who you are, you will never be happy because of what you have.
  • Building a better you is the first step to building a better America.
  • You will be on your way because you will have discovered that you can always find a capable helping hand at the end of your own sleeve.
  • You can not perform in a manner inconsistent (असंगत, विरोधी  ) with the way you see yourself.
  • The problem with pity parties (an instance of indulging in self-pity or eliciting pity from other people, दया पार्टी ) is very few people come, and those who do don’t bring presents.
  • If you are going to have to swallow a frog, you don’t want to have to look at that sucker too long.
  • When you do the things you need to do when you need to do them, the day will come when you can do the things you want to do when you want to do them.
  • An in-depth look reveals considerably more than a casual glance.
  • Provide audio products for people.
  • No stinking thinking.
  • It is easier to explain price once than to apologize for quality forever.
  • Your faith is very important. I have done the math, and you are going to be dead a whole lot longer than you will be alive.
  • Since belief determines behaviour, doesn’t it make sense that we should be teaching ethical, moral values in every home and in every school in America.
  • People are basically the same the same the world over. Everybody wants the same things – to be happy, to be healthy, to be at least reasonably prosperous, and to be secure. They want friends, peace of mind, good family relationships, and hope that tomorrow is going to be even better than today.
  • It might interest you to know that the 1828 Noah Webster Dictionary identifies the optimist in complimentary (praising or approving, प्रशंसनीय  ) terms, but says nothing about the pessimist. The word ‘pessimist’ was not in our vocabulary at that time. It is a modern invention which I believe we should ‘dis-invent’.
  • US President, Theodore Roosevelt, has been described as founder of the Bull Moose Party, the man who led his troops up San Juan Hill in the Spanish-American war, a big game hunter, family man, civic servant, and a host of other things.
  • Earl nightingale has inspired more people toward success and fortune than anyother motivational speaker on the planet.
  • I have always said that everyone is in May be you don’t hold the title of salesperson, but if the business you are in requires you to deal with people, you, my friend, are in sales.
  • I have always taught that a poor economy is the best opportunity for salespeople because the naysayers and grumblers ( भुनभुनानेवाला, घरघरानेवाला, शिकायत करनेवाला  ) have already given up, leaving more territory, more opportunities to be successful than in a good economy when virtually all salespeople are out there, giving it their best.
  • For every sale you miss because you are too enthusiastic, you will miss a hundred because you are not enthusiastic enough.
  • We miss 100% of the sales we don’t ask for.
  • Stop selling, start helping.
  • Selling is essentially a transfer of feelings.
  • Selling is something we do for our clients – not to our clients.
  • People don’t buy for logical reasons. They buy for emotional reasons.
  • When I became proficient (competent or skilled in doing or using something, कुशल, सिद्धहस्त  ) as a salesman, I was invited to teach new hires.
  • Every sale has five basic obstacles (a thing that blocks one’s way or prevents or hinders progress, बाधाएं  ) : no need, no money, no hurry, no desire, no trust.
  • The top salesperson in the organisation probably missed more sales than 90% of the sales people on the team, but they also made more calls than the others made.
  • Timid salesmen have skinny kids.
  • Today I will be a successful sales professional, and I will learn something today that will make me even more professional tomorrow.
  • Statistics suggests that when customers complain, business owners and managers ought to get excited about it. The complaining customer represents a huge opportunity for more business.
  • If you do not believe in your product or service enough to offer it to your own family and friends, then you should question the value of what you are selling.
  • My first professional job was to sell heavy duty waterless cookware.
  • My advice to public speakers : Prepare extensively everytime, and be funny.
  • Some of us learn from other people’s mistakes, and the rest of us have to be other people.
  • How you see your future is much more important than what happened in the past.
  • Great doors of opportunity swing on the tiny hinges of obedience.
  • Opportunity is walking through your life every day in the form of people you meet.
  • All of us are not born with equal opportunities. But over a period of time, regardless of our parentage, place of birth, prospects in our communities, or education, the day comes when we have to make the choice to let our past teach us—or beat us.
  • Money won’t make you happy, but everybody wants to find out for themselves.
  • Money is not the most important thing, but when you need it, there are few substitutes. So, while I like the things money can buy, I love what money won’t buy. It bought me a house but it won’t buy me a home. It would buy me a companion, but it won’t buy me a friend.
  • Money is not the most important thing in life, but it is reasonably close to oxygen on the ‘gotta have it’ scale.
  • Money isn’t everything , but it’s right up there with oxygen.
  • It is unwise to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money, that is all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything because the thing you bought was incapable of doing what it was bought to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot .
  • As youngsters, my mother taught her children that while we might not be the smartest people around, we could be courteous, polite and considerate of others.
  • If my life has had a theme, I suppose it has been a typical American theme in that, for most of it, I have been looking for happiness and success.
  • For 24 years of my adult life, by choice I weighed well over 200 pounds. I say ‘by choice’ because I have never ‘accidentally’ eaten anything, so when I choose to eat too much, I have chosen to weigh too much.
  • I once dieted so religiously I quit eating in church.
  • I took up an offer for me to lose 30 pounds in 30 days. It worked. I lost 30 days.
  • My favourite writers are all jews – David, Solomon, Matthew, Mark – well, you get the picture.
  • The six people who had the biggest impact on my life were all women. Had I been sexist, my life would have been far less fulfilling.
  • Wally Amos is the classic example of a man who gets up again and again.
  • Andy Andrews is the best speaker I have ever seen.
  • Earl nightingale has inspired more people toward success and fortune than anyother motivational speaker on the planet.
  • US President, Theodore Roosevelt, has been described as founder of the Bull Moose Party, the man who led his troops up San Juan Hill in the Spanish-American war, a big game hunter, family man, civic servant, and a host of other things.
  • At 25, I was in the audience of my first professional speaker, Bob Bales. His presentation got my attention. I had never seen anyone having so much fun ‘at work’ and getting paid for it.
  • The seed of a bamboo tree is planted, fertilized and watered. Nothing happens for the first year. There´s no sign of growth. Not even a hint. The same thing happens – or doesn´t happen – the second year. And then the third year. The tree is carefully watered and fertilized each year, but nothing shows. No growth. No anything. For eight years it can continue. Eight years! Then – after the eight years of fertilizing and watering have passed, with nothing to show for it – the bamboo tree suddently sprouts and grows thirty feet in three months!
  • But did it grow ninety feet in six weeks or was it ninety feet in five years? You think about it for a moment, and you know it was ninety feet in five years because had there been any year they did not water it and fertilize it, there would have been no Chinese bamboo tree.
  • The largest locomotive in the world can be held in its tracks while standing still simply by placing a single one-inch block of wood in front of each of the eight drive wheels. The same locomotive moving at 100 miles per hour can crash through a wall of steel-reinforced concrete five feet thick. That.
  • Are you committed to a life of continual counseling, growth, and education? Are you committed to a life of consistently receiving truth, of renewing your mind? From what sources do you receive your counseling? Are you reading books by authors who speak wisdom? Are you listening to music and watching movies that have redemptive and edifying themes? Are you involved in a small group or community of people that can offer you support, guidance, and encouragement, and in which you give back that which you have been given? Do you know of professional counselors you can see when needed? Are you asking God for wisdom about life on a regular basis?
  • This is not to imply that we agree on everything because we don’t. Nor does it mean there are no arguments because there are. It does mean there is never any maliciousness or bitterness in our differences. It does mean each is willing to admit a mistake and apologize if he or she is wrong. It means we enjoy each other and love each other enough to put the other one first. We never part company or go to sleep without settling our differences and reaffirming our love. We’re both grateful that God has let us spend enough years together to develop a relationship and discover what real love is all about. Our prayer is that God will permit us to have many more years together before we start our walk through eternity—together.
  • Most people have heard of Mahatma Gandhi, the man who led India to independence from British rule. His life has been memorialized in books and film, and he is regarded as one of the great men in history. But did you know Gandhi did not start out as a great hero? He was born into a middle-class family. He had low self-esteem, and that made him reluctant to interact with others. He wasn’t a very good student, either, and he struggled just to finish high school. His first attempt at higher education ended in five months. His parents decided to send him to England to finish his education, hoping the new environment would motivate him. Gandhi became a lawyer. The problem when he returned to India was that he didn’t know much about Indian law and had trouble finding clients. So he migrated to South Africa and got a job as a clerk. Gandhi’s life changed one day while riding on a train in South Africa in the first-class section. Because of his dark skin, he was forced to move to a freight car. He refused, and they kicked him off the train. It was then he realized he was afraid of challenging authority, but that he suddenly wanted to help others overcome discrimination if he could. He created a new vision for himself that had value and purpose. He saw value in helping people free themselves from discrimination and injustice. He discovered purpose in life where none had existed previously, and that sense of purpose pulled him forward and motivated him to do what best-selling author and motivational speaker Andy Andrews calls “persist without exception.” His purpose and value turned him into the winner he was born to be.
  • Outside of your relationship with God, the most important relationship you can have is with yourself. I don’t mean that we are to spend all our time focused on me, me, me to the exclusion of others. Instead, I mean that we must be healthy internally—emotionally and spiritually—in order to create healthy relationships with others. Motivational pep talks and techniques for achieving success are useless if a person is weighed down by guilt, shame, depression, rejection, bitterness, or crushed self-esteem. Countless marriages land on the rocks of divorce because unhealthy people marry thinking that marriage, or their spouse, will make them whole. Wrong. If you’re not a healthy single person you won’t be a healthy married person. Part of God’s purpose for every human life is wholeness and health. I love the words of Jesus in John 10:10: “I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.” God knows we are the walking wounded in this world and He wants the opportunity to remove everything that limits us and heal every wound from which we suffer. Some wonder why God doesn’t just “fix” us automatically so we can get on with life. It’s because He wants our wounds to be our tutors to lead us to Him. Pain is a wonderful motivator and teacher! When the great Russian intellectual Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn was released from the horrible Siberian work camp to which he was sent by Joseph Stalin, he said, “Thank you, prison!” It was the pain and suffering he endured that caused his eyes to be opened to the reality of the God of his childhood, to embrace his God a new in a personal way. When we are able to say thank you to the pain we have endured, we know we are ready to fulfill our purpose in life. When we resist the pain life brings us, all of our energy goes into resistance and we have none left for the pursuit of our purpose. It is the better part of wisdom to let pain do its work and shape us as it will. We will be wiser, deeper, and more productive in the long run. There is a great promise in the New Testament that says God comes to us to comfort us so we can turn around and comfort those who are hurting with the comfort we have received from Him (see 2 Corinthians 1:3–4). Make yourself available to God and to those who suffer. A large part of our own healing comes when we reach out with compassion to others.
