Thought for the Day: 11 December 2023
“Never forget the three powerful resources you always have available to you: love, prayer, and forgiveness.”
― H. Jackson Brown, Jr., Positive Quotes
The power to forgive comes from the power to love; the ability, the desire and the power to love all and forgive comes through the prayers.
After hurts, betrayal and broken trust from someone you trusted so much, it is not so easy to forgive anyone and move on.
With unkind and regretful hearts, we cannot care, share or love those diseased, orphans or homeless left on the road.
When we pray with all our heart, faith becomes stronger, healing takes sooner and things become easier with the fulfilled and blissful life.
Let’s meditate on the strength of prayer; let’s love the unlovables and forgive even those who hurt us the most for our own peace.
Thought for the Day: 10 December 2023
“It is not how much we have, but how much we enjoy, that makes happiness.”
― Charles Spurgeon, Happiness Quotes
Running after worldly possessions, we forget to enjoy and most importantly forget to live, but only exists which is a pitiful matter.
At the end, we may have everything – money and property, still feel lonely and are full of regrets about how we missed to live those moments gone long ago.

“A good moral character is the first essential in a man. It is therefore highly important to endeavor not only to be learned, but virtuous.”

Thought for the Day: 8 December 2023
“The standards you establish for others must reflect the standards you set for yourself. No one will follow a hypocrite.”
― Lou Holtz, Positive Quotes
Standards are rules, sets of benchmark that guide our actions and quality ultimately helping to reach the peak of excellence.
Setting standards is the foundation for the goal achievement, be it personal or organizational.
Before setting standards for others or bounding them to do, we must set the same for ourselves and live by them. This in turn helps to win the trust and respect of colleagues, gain coordination and maintain a positive work environment.
No one listens to a person who acts contrary to his own stated words, values or level of acceptance.
Set standards in your career, health or relationships and live by these for a more fulfilling, healthy and happy life.
Thought for the Day: 7 December 2023
“Learning is not attained by chance, it must be sought for with ardor and attended to with diligence.”
― Abigail Adams, Education Quotes
Learning is the process of acquiring new skill, behavior or knowledge through practice, teachings or experiences.
Though talent may happen by chance, learning doesn’t just happen. It is the practice that requires sustained effort, passion, determination and active involvement to learn.
Often, the changes directed by knowledge and learning are tremendously positive rewarding lifelong benefits.
As said – ‘There is no Royal road to learning’, observe and reflect on your experiences, try and experiment new things, be present and make an effort to learn something everyday.
Thought for the Day: 6 December 2023
“Change the changeable, accept the unchangeable, and remove yourself from the unacceptable.”
― Denis Waitley, Positive Quotes
Though Change is the constant law of the universe, we should be aware of what and when things need to be changed along with their impacts. At the same time, we should also accept that all things cannot be changed as we desire nor all the consequences lie in our hands.
When the situation demands, things which are amenable should be revised and modified, be it the laws of the nation or long holding opinions.
But the change should always be for the better, for the general welfare of all, not for destructive or peril works. Otherwise it is not necessary to change.
However, for those things we can’t do anything, just accept them as they are and be wise to move on in life. Overstressing or regretting about things for which we can do nothing is meaningless.
Be flexible in your thinking and attitude to change, accept or readjust yourself in life.
Thought for the Day: 5 December 2023
“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.”
― Albert Einstein, Positive Quotes
In general, to find the solution, we need to reach the root of the problem, study it through different angles and reach a conclusion.
Sometimes what we think as challenging or tough might not be really so, it is only our rigid mind making it complicated. We just need a different perspective or thinking level to view it.
Awake! Be aware of things, people and the world around you. Arise with new conscious, innovative and creative thoughts.
Thought for the Day: 4 December 2023
“To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you.”
― Lewis B. Smedes, Positive Quotes
Forgiveness is the process of releasing negative feelings of resentment or vengeance towards the person who has caused harm to us.
It is also about making a conscious decision to let go of the past, make a reconciliation and move on in life.
Forgiving doesn’t mean to ignore or justify the pain we suffered because of someone, but to free oneself from the prison of past, resentment and anger rooted deep inside the heart.
Holding grudges towards another traps you emotionally, the feelings of which drags you down and slowly poisons life.
Embrace forgiveness, let go of resentment and thoughts of revenge; make peace with yourself and move on in life.
Thought for the Day: 3 December 2023
“Let us learn to live with kindness, to love everyone, even when they do not love us.”
― Pope Francis, Kindness Quotes
Kindness is human nature marked by selfless acts of generosity, consideration or concern towards others without expecting anything in return.
Every kind act, no matter how small it might be, reflects the greatness of the human soul.
We all know what it is to be kind but forget to be so when needed. To do kind things for others, show mercy and help those needy in every possible way is a human responsibility.
Living a life of kindness does not mean that one has to compromise with oneself and only do for others. In fact it starts with yourself – first be kind to yourself, and then to your family, friends and others.
Thought for the Day: 2 December 2023
“Thoughts become perception, perception becomes reality. Alter your thoughts, alter your reality.”
― William James, Positivity Quotes
Perception is a way of viewing something, dealing with it and living life.
The world that we live in, its nature and the way we look at it is a reflection of our own thoughts, beliefs and understanding, everything in the mind.
How we think, believe and perceive about something creates our reality. By altering our thoughts, we can alter the reality of life that we live. At the same time it alters the way we perceive the universe around us.
Suppose, if we think and believe the world is better, we will see and create the world as a better place for everyone to live in.
“There is nothing good or bad, but our thinking makes it so.” Have a willingness to see things differently; change the way you view yourself, people and the things around you.
Be the master of your thoughts and consequently your own life.
Thought for the Day: 1 December 2023
“Study while others are sleeping; work while others are loafing; prepare while others are playing; and dream while others are wishing.”
― William Arthur Ward, Motivational Quotes
To achieve and be successful in life, we should choose to utilize most of our precious time wisely in learning, growing or working, without letting it go to waste.
Don’t get involved in purposeless work or activities. Do not just sleep and dream nor roam like a loafer; have a dream in your mind and work towards its achievement.
Thought for the Day: 30 November 2023
Disappointments, problems and setbacks are unavoidable parts of life that make us low, sometimes unmotivated with a feeling of being dumped in a pit.
It is obvious that in ups and downs of life, things do not happen as planned; it is us who have to do hard work with unending hope and make them happen in our lives.
Thought for the Day: 29 November 2023
“Each of us must work for his own improvement, and at the same time share a general responsibility for all humanity.”
― Marie Curie, Humanity Quotes
Humanity is an intrinsic quality of human kind which separates us from the rest of living beings.
It’s our duty to stand for one another, no matter how hard it gets, and let humanity sustain under all circumstances.
Never lose human values in the process of satisfying your greed or for personal gains. Let’s share a general responsibility for all humanity.
Thought for the Day: 28 November 2023
“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.”
― Mark Twain, Leadership Quotes
As an independent individual, everyone has his own viewpoint different from the society. However, sometimes we have to go with the viewpoints of the majority despite conflicts and disagreements.
Whenever we find ourselves on the side of the majority, we must pause for some time and reflect with our sophisticated thoughts if we are doing the right thing.
Majority think, feel, act or follow does not necessarily mean you should also do – nor does it signify righteousness and sensibleness every time.
In the name of the majority, are we suppressing minority groups? Are they being prevented to express their opinions or having access to services?
Stop blindly running after the crowds or power. Every time pause and reflect before doing anything or being a mere part of the herd.
Thought for the Day: 27 November 2023
“Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway.”
― Earl Nightingale, Motivational Quotes
Dreams are not the matter of overnight success. It takes a lot of time, sweat, perseverance and dedication for the accomplishment.
Thought for the Day: 26 November 2023
“Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.”
― Carl Jung, Inspirational Quotes
It is also about looking at our conflicts, fears, anxieties, repressed emotions, all the things that have been bottled up inside since long.
Thought for the Day: 25 November 2023
“Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.”
― George Bernard Shaw, Motivational Quotes
Change is the law of the Universe. With time, change is necessary – within ourselves, our minds and thoughts which is the root and the beginning of progress.
If we refuse to change our mindset, our beliefs or routine, how will we ever be able to progress beyond our misconceptions?
When change is for a good cause, it brings ample opportunities. Considering facts and situations, we need to make changes in our beliefs and lifestyles.
Be flexible in your thinking, stay positive. Take action to change and grow rather than letting yourself stagnant, deteriorate or befall.
Progress is impossible without change; embrace and move with its pace or be left behind.
Thought for the Day: 24 November 2023
“Freedom consists not in doing what we like, but in having the right to do what we ought.”
― Pope John Paul II, Freedom Quotes
Freedom is the right to choose what you feel is right, follow and express what you believe in, and not let others control you or your actions.
When fulfilling own desires, you cannot harm someone else or step into the liberty of others.
To make freedom the moralities of life rather than desires, listen to your mind and focus on logical reasonings; be decisive and practical.
Thought for the Day: 23 November 2023
“You will never reach your destination if you stop and throw stones at every dog that barks.”
― Winston Churchill, Motivational Quotes
On the journey to our destination, we come across a lot of people – those who appreciate our efforts and give encouragement while the rest discourage and try to belittle our dreams.
If we stop at every single step and waste time replying to every person manipulating us, we will not be able to reach our destined goal.
Hence, focus on your goal and keep going ignoring those who keep barking.
Your belief in yourself, your trust in your experience and your achievements will give the answer to those barking.
Thought for the Day: 22 November 2023
“Respect other people’s feelings. It might mean nothing to you, but it could mean everything to them.”
― Roy T. Bennett, Positive Quotes
Respect is accepting others the way they are with due regard for their feelings, wishes or thoughts.
Life is beautiful as long as everyone is being respectful and not hurting anyone.
When you respect someone, admire and treat them well, you earn admiration.
Respect is accepting others the way they are with due regard for their feelings, wishes or thoughts.
To be unkind and saying something just to hurt someone’s sentiments isn’t right.
Before being judgmental, consider from others’ point of view. Value what others feel, believe or think.
Thought for the Day: 21 November 2023
“The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing… Never lose a holy curiosity.”
― Albert Einstein, Motivational Quotes
Curiosity is having the strong desire to learn, acquire facts and knowledge about new ideas, interests and adventures.
It adds excitement into your life, keeping the dull and boring life away. Those curious minds are open to learn and know different opinions, lifestyles and topics.
Being curious helps you to face challenges or deal with problematic situations in a positive way.
Be enthusiastic! Try to dive deeper into the topics of interest with – what, why, when, who, where, and how.

― Dwight D. Eisenhower, Motivational Quotes

“Only you and you alone can change your situation. Don’t blame it on anything or anyone.”
― Leonardo DiCaprio, Positive Quotes
Sometimes it’s okay to fail, situations may be tougher and things may not always go as expected; we need to realize it and then work out to fix the problems instead of blaming others.
Putting the blame on others or making someone guilty for your mistake does not make you great nor will improve your situation.
It is only us responsible to make things happen and change our situation; so there is no point in blaming others for our circumstances.
Stop overreacting when things go wrong; stop playing the Blame Game and take responsibility for your own mistakes.
Thought for the Day: 18 November 2023
Often being ignorant or misunderstanding things creates fear. The less understanding and the more uncertain things, the greater the fear becomes.
Unless we have knowledge and understanding of the root cause of fear, we remain fearful.
When we learn and understand things, we realize that fear is just something created out of misunderstanding.
So, make a way to clear doubts, understand more and face things intelligently.
Thought for the Day: 17 November 2023
“You will never do anything in this world without courage. It is the greatest quality of the mind next to honor.”
― Aristotle, Courage Quotes
Courage is not only about bringing revolutionary changes in society or someone’s life. It is also about overcoming the fears within, coming out of the comfort zone and bringing out the best of you everyday.
When you overcome fear and express yourself, new opportunities come in life; and you learn new things.
Thought for the Day: 16 November 2023
“You can start with nothing. And out of nothing, and out of no way, a way will be made.”
― Michael Beckwith, Motivational Quotes
Starting out of nothing is challenging, yet we can make a way out of it. We’ve got to start from some or the other point anyway.
So, it is wrong to say we have nothing. Lack of sufficient money, a building or something else does not mean we have nothing. Everyone has something.
Regardless of whether you have something or nothing now, if you do not have guts to take steps, you will lose endless possibilities to be something in life.
Thought for the Day: 15 November 2023
“Don’t depend too much on anyone in this world because even your own shadow leaves you when you are in darkness.”
― Ibn Taymiyyah, Positivity Quotes

“If you can imagine it, you can achieve it. If you can dream it, you can become it.”
― William Arthur Ward, Motivational Quotes
Imagination is the ability of the mind to be creative, thus allowing one to explore the past as well as to envision the future. A dream is something you create in your mind.
Together these act as the key tool to achieve our ambitions in life and recreate and remodel the world.
If we doubt our own abilities and stop dreaming, we will never be able to live the life of our dream.
Enjoy your little success to generate new spirit and energy for creating milestones.
As said – ‘If you can imagine it, you can achieve it; if you can dream it, you can become it.’

“Fame is a vapor; popularity an accident; riches take wings; those who cheer today will curse tomorrow; only one thing endures; character.”
― Horace Greeley, Wisdom Quotes
Fame has no endurance, neither popularity is reliable. These come like sparks and then fade away.
Those who cheer with you today may turn against you tomorrow.
Riches too get washed away like the dirt of hands.
The only thing that actually lasts longer is your character and values.
So, don’t drift away with fame or popularity; don’t get swept away with riches or crowds.
Don’t forget your character and values for these are the only things which remain till the end and follow even in death while the rest come and go.
Thought for the Day: 8 November 2023
“Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power.”
― Lao Tzu, Wisdom Quotes
Knowing our own self is the beginning of true wisdom which leads us to a deeper understanding of ourselves and gain insight into the relationship we share around us.
Self-knowledge enables the power to look outward with greater clarity, patience and compassion.

Let your goodness shine inside out. Forget how people treated you; try to be nice to people.
Thought for the Day: 5 November 2023
“You must never be fearful about what you are doing when it is right.”
― Rosa Parks, Motivational Quotes
Doing the right thing means doing things above your own personal needs or beliefs for the common good.
You do something because it’s the right thing to do; not just to impress or make anyone happy.
Sometimes what you think is right may go against your friends, family, and society. In such a situation, listen to a little voice in your head that tells what the right thing is.
The results of doing the right things are positive and beneficial for those around you. Do the right thing without any fear.

“We cannot be sure of having something to live for unless we are willing to die for it.”
― Ernesto Che Guevara, Inspirational Quotes
Life gives us a chance everyday to show our courage, our dedication and fulfill duties even in the face of hardships.
When we are fully dedicated to something, we are ready to put our life at stake or endure danger for the same.
We are willing to go at any length, do anything, undergo any test to fulfill our duty towards it.
For instance, those brave armies in the border do their duties day in and out for the nation without any worry of their personal safety.
Such feelings and commitment at our personal and professional level is the key towards a fulfilling and accomplished life.
Thought for the Day: 3 November 2023
“If you find a path with no obstacles, it probably doesn’t lead anywhere.”
― Frank A. Clark, Inspirational Quotes
A path with no obstacles is a life of relaxation, everything ready-made like spoon-feeding, no challenges, no excitement, nothing to venture in life.
It’s beautiful to imagine a luxurious life, gatherings and enjoying with friends all the time, but what is the end result? What do you get from living such a life? A boring life succumbed to the pitfall far away from the real thrill of life.
Seeking to live an easy life, and turning away from challenging work leads you nowhere.
In between hurdles and challenges lie the greatest possibilities, adventure and joy.
Thought for the Day: 2 November 2023
“You may be disappointed if you fail, but you are doomed if you don’t try.”
― Beverly Sills, Motivational Quotes
You may be disappointed if you fail, but the experience which comes from it is priceless. At least make an effort to do something everyday.
The worst part is when you choose to quit and never try to do anything new or anything big.
The more you fail, the better you experience; the more you try, the nearer you reach to your goal.
Those who actively try and fail are not actually failures but growing and progressing everyday. The actual failure is the one who never tries or quits easily.
Thought for the Day: 1 November 2023
Try to keep things simple; the more things get complicated, the more the situation worsens, the more we get confused and the less we find fulfillment.
Life full of lies and deceits is no less than a living hell. When we follow an untruthful life, more lies have to be created just to cover up the previous one.
When there is simplicity in our character, thinking and intention, all the good things surround us.
Greatness comes when we choose to live simple, practice truthfulness and show compassion to others.
