You have to Grow from the Inside out. None can Teach you, none can make you Spiritual.
The World is the Great Gymnasium where we come to make ourselves Strong.
Take up one Idea, Make that one Idea your life. Think of it, Dream of it, Live on that Idea let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body be full of that Idea and just leave every other idea alone. This is the Way to Success.
We are what our Thoughts have made us, so Take care about what you think. Words are Secondary. Thoughts Live; they Travel Far.
Whatever you Believe, that you will be, If you Believe yourselves to be Ages, Ages you will be Tomorrow. There is Nothing to Obstruct you.
All Power is within you. You can do Anything and Everything. Believe in that. Do not Believe that you are Weak, Do not Believe that you are Half-crazy Lunatics, as most of us do Nowadays. Stand up and Express the Divinity within You.
Experience is the only Teacher we have. We may Talk and Reason all our Lives but we shall not understand a Word of Truth.
Learn Everything that is Good from Others but Bring it in and in your Own way Adsorb it, Do not become Others.
Dare to be Free Dare to go as far as your Thought Leads and Dare to carry that out in your Life.
Whatever you Think that you will be. If you Think yourself Weak, weak you will be, If you Think yourself Strong, You will be.
Never think there is anything Impossible for the Soul. It is the Greatest Heresy to think so. If there is a Sin, this is the only Sin, to say that you are Weak or Others are Weak.
Stand up, be Bold, be Strong. Take the whole Responsibility on your own Shoulders and know that You are the Creator of your own Destiny. All the Strength and Succor you want is within Yourself.
Always try to Represent yourself Happy because Initially, it becomes your Look. Gradually it becomes your Habit and Finally, It becomes your Personality.
Ask nothing, want Nothing in Return. Give what you have to Give, It will come back to you but Do not Think of that Now.
Be not Afraid of Anything. You will do Marvelous Work. It is Fearlessness that brings the Heaven even in a Moment.
Anything that makes you Weak Physically, Intellectually and Spiritually, Reject it as Poison.
Fill the Brain with High Thoughts, Highest ideals, Place them Day and Night before you and out of that will come Great Work.
It is our own Mental Attitude which makes the World what it is for us. Our Thought make things Beautiful, our thoughts make things Ugly. The whole world is in our own Minds. Learn to see things in the Proper Light.
Don’t look Back – Forward Infinite Energy, Infinite Enthusiasm, Infinite Daring and Infinite Patience – then alone can Great deeds be Accomplished.
You should work like a Master and not as a Slave, Work Incessantly but do not do a Slave’s Work.
