“The essence of being human is that one does not seek perfection.”
― George Orwell, Wisdom Quotes
Nobody is perfect, for perfection is an illusion. No human being is free from errors. We are humans of emotions, not machines; sometimes we are ready to go any length or do any sin for the sake of loyalty and prove our commitment.
Set aside ego. Accept that we are not perfect, however that should not restrict us from doing our best and contributing to humanity.
Instead of running to seek faultlessness, it is wise to accept that imperfections are part of life and not let them bother you.

“Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice.”
― Steve Jobs, Motivational Quotes
Inner voice is the voice inside your head or your inner wisdom that will direct you to your goals.
With this, we develop a tendency to seek for others’ approval to do something or be happy, which can prove detrimental to our growth and development.
Also, things may go according to other people’s expectations, and sometimes misleading, but not according to our plans and ambition.
Seek advice from others but to pursue great things, listen to your inner voice, and it will show you the way.
Trust that you have this inner voice, which requires your practice, stillness of mind and being mindful.

Smile is one of the most beautiful things you can share with all. With its reflection, begins the journey of peace, happiness and friendship putting an end to jealousy, hatred or hard feelings.
The power of a smile that beams through the pure heart is such that even the lump of hatred melts down, an unknown becomes a friend and covers the ugliness hidden within.
Just imagine your friend who frowns often or gives an ice look always! Would you feel comfortable? Then what about strangers? Forget about making new friends if you are that kind of person.
Smiling more often enriches your heart, purifies your soul and elevates your life to the next level.
Share your smile with the world and spread the positive vibes of peace and friendship.

“There is only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving, and that’s your own self.”
― Aldous Huxley, Positivity Quotes
If there is anything that we can control or improve to the best, that is ourselves – our own thoughts, feelings, and behavior.
Self-improvement is the key to:
- increase self-awareness,
- enhance strength,
- overcome weakness,
- strengthen relationships,
- improve understanding and
- have a clarity of things in life.
Before trying to make improvements around you or change others, you need to start from within to be able to bring real changes, and that ability comes with your decision to work and improve your own self.
The only thing we can be certain of our ability to improve and change is ourselves. For others we can only give advice or guidance but cannot do anything unless they decide to do it themselves.
Keep things simple and look out within yourself for improvement before going out to change the world.

Vision is something that gives structure, purpose and direction to our life.
Eyes give us only physical sight – the ability to see outer things; but vision is the mental ability to imagine, think long-term, interpret things according to situation and plan ahead of time.
Having sight, but without mental vision is worse than being blind.

“We can know only that we know nothing. And that is the highest degree of human wisdom.”
― Leo Tolstoy, Wisdom Quotes
Learning is a process which continues till the end of life, yet we cannot know about each and everything in the universe. Whatever we know is very less or insignificant compared to the whole universe. Also knowledge keeps on evolving.
Accepting the fact that we know nothing, we become more open to new knowledge and strive to gain it through experiments and observations.
When one assumes that he knows everything, he becomes more tyranny, egoistic and discriminative.
When we know that we know nothing, that is our humility. With it starts our true journey of wisdom.
Learn more and be more humble; see things with an open mind and be curious to know more and grow wiser every day.

“Do you want to know who you are? Don’t ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you.”
― Thomas Jefferson, Motivational Quotes

People become great and live for ages even after death, only due to their work.
So, next time before pondering upon your identity, do things that better your own as well as others’ lives.

“Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted in important affairs.”
― Albert Einstein, Honesty Quotes
The manner in which a person deals with the facts and figures of a matter, both on a personal and professional level, decides how responsible and trustworthy the person is.
One who is careless or neglects the truth in small matters is equally liable to dishonesty. He cannot be trusted in important affairs.
Involvement of such a person in the whole decision-making process can lead things in the wrong direction. Sometimes it’s in the small issues around which the core of important matter is based.
Always trust the person who is truthful – tells or confesses the truth even in minor matters.

“Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.”
― Will Rogers, Motivational Quotes
With the golden opportunities that come in life, one must be able to catch hold of them and be willing to put his best possible efforts.
No matter how better the opportunities are, without making efforts, we fail to grab the track of progress in life.
In order to be something of value in life, first we should follow the right path and continue it to the right direction.
But if we just sit idly, no opportunity will wait for us nor will take us anywhere.
Be the one who makes the right use of opportunities, maximizes potential and hits the target.

“When you judge another, you do not define them, you define yourself.”
― Wayne Dyer, Positive Quotes
When we judge another, we are stating opinions, making assumptions or projecting emotion out of insecurities.
In the process of making judgement, we reveal a truth about ourselves – how we think, feel and take things.
Without knowing about others, making subjective judgement based on their outer impression is not right. Sometimes we may have to feel guilty for the same.
Instead of making negative judgmental assumptions about people and putting them down, try to look for the good in them.
As rightly said that when we judge someone, it isn’t actually about them; rather it’s about us, our mentality and insecurities.
So, next time, first look at yourself before trying to judge others for no reason.

“Open your arms to change but don’t let go of your values.”
― Dalai Lama, Inspirational Quotes
Our values are moral, ethical and cultural principles that help us to decide what is right and wrong and act in different situations.
Values define us – who we are and where we belong to. They shape the generation’s mind and help in moulding their character.
Stand by those values at all costs because that is our identity. When we lose identity, we lose our roots.
If there are some values that tend to disrupt social integrity or raise questions against human wisdom, those must be modified; but that does not mean to forget all good values in the name of change.
Welcome change with open arms but never compromise on your values for money or anything else.

“There is only one success – to be able to spend your life in your own way.”
― Christopher Morley, Success Quotes
Often we associate success with name, fame, richness and wealth. The one with more wealth, popularity and achievements is regarded as successful.
But what if we feel empty inside in spite of being so successful?
The real gist of success is being able to live our life the way we want, chase our dreams and go at any length to accomplish them.
Living life the way we want does not mean searching for satisfaction in wrong things or being disrespectful to the basic codes of human life.
It means living life in a righteous way, following passion and making contributions to social life with our knowledge, skills and work.
How happier the world would become had everyone of us could listen to our heart and live our life the way we want.
