He was labeled as mentally retarded when he was kid. But he did not give up and kept running towards his dreams. Today, he is one of the most popular life coaches around. So, here are some of his most inspirational words that are going to change your life too.
1. “I don’t know what dream you have. I don’t care how far it appears to be. But i know one thing that you have greatness within you. You can live your dreams. Life is going to hit you like a punch. In the process of achieving your goals, you will incur incur a lot failures, a lot of setbacks, a lot of defeat. There will be times when you will start to doubt yourself and say – Why God Why? Why this had to happen to me. I am just trying to take care of my children, my family and my mother. I am not trying to steal or rob from anybody then why. But you have to remember one thing that the situations would not be same forever. Tough times have not come to stay. They have come to pass. So, just never give up on your dreams. What i want from all of you to think about your dreams because i am in a world full of dreamers. I do not believe that anybody is given the dreams that he can not turn into reality. When you start chasing your dreams, you discover some amazing things about yourself. Your inner talents and skills come out and you come to know that you have everything you need. You will realize that you are more powerful than you can ever begin to imagine. You really don’t have to go through life being a victim and all. Most people don’t work on their dreams because they are afraid. They have fear of failure, fear of success, fear of judgment, fear of people and all kinds of fears. Such people stop growing, they stop working, they stop stretching themselves. What they all do is earn a living, raise a family and then die. But you are not them. You are an uncommon breed. You are on the way of success. You are a winner and you would not give up. So just say – It is not over until i win.”
2. “Never say that you are having a bad day. Always say – I am having a character building day. It is very important for you to believe that something is not right today, it will be right tomorrow. You don’t have an opportunity today, there will be abundance of opportunities tomorrow. Its not going to be easy, it is going to be hard. But let me tell you one thing, it will be worth it. Something will always say inside you that you can do it. Even if nobody else can’t see it, you are going to see it yourself. You are the one. People will follow you because you came this way. Before you all go back home to your respective cities, just write down at least five reasons on why you deserve your dream and why you are not going to give up. What is going to make you unstoppable. Because the logical and practical thinking says that it can not be done. These five reasons will lift you up when you fall down.Remember, you have to unreasonable person, you have to be uncommon person.”
3. “Birds of a feather flock together. You run around with losers, you are going to end up a loser. Unconsciously, you will pick up their thinking, their habits and most importantly, their attitude about life. If you are around cynical and negative people all the time, you will end up cynical and negative. So, you gotta watch yourself. You have to stop living out the life of other people, living our their conclusions and living our their consciousness. Just align yourself with powerful people. Align yourself with the people that can encourage you and lift you up when you feel down. People who can empower you, people you can learn from, people you can grow from. If you have people around you that can contribute to your growth then it becomes easier to achieve what you want because you are with like minded people. Always try to reach on the top because it is the bottom that is overcrowded. It is easy to be at the bottom because it does not take any effort to be a looser. You have to harnish your will to say that i am going to challenge myself. The biggest enemy you have to deal with is yourself. So, see you at the top.”
