Do the thing you fear, and fear will disappear. Indecision is expensive, Very expensive. A wise man speaks when others have exhausted their words. An open mind collects more riches than an open purse. If at first you don’t succeed, try once more and then try something else. It is not only machinery that becomes obsolete. One has to guard against obsolescence of the mind. If you make up your mind to do three things, namely to work, to save and to learn, you can rise in this world. Do not postpone the unpleasant and difficult tasks. Do them now, and you will feel much better afterwards. Keep on learning – from your successes, so you repeat them; from your failures, so you never make the same one twice. The people you may have with you may not be the best; how you use them decides your profits. Success is not the opposite of failure. A runner may come in last, but if he beats his record, he succeeds. If you do not make mistakes, it only means you are not trying 100 percent. If you want to move mountains, you have to first learn how to move particles. When it is impossible to change others, you must change yourself. Don’t say you don’t have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Louis Pasteur, Mother Theresa, and Albert Einstein. The wise man thinks before acting and the fool thinks after it. The more clear you are on what you want, the more power you will have to achieve it. A fundamental requirement for success: Humility. Everyone has a will to win but a few has the will to prepare to win Without a smile on your face, you are not fully dressed. There is no substitute for action knowing is knowing and doing is doing There is nothing in this world, that training cannot achieve Indecision is often worse than a wrong decision. Over planning. Look for it and kill it. You can’t do things differently until you see things differently. Your mind is a computer and, Therefore, programmable. Your mind is a thoughts Factory, and you are the Production Manager. It can produce either positive or negative thoughts. The ideas of others are your raw materials. Listen to others but use your own judgment. Mistakes are the best teachers. Ninety-six per cent of the old records and letters are never referred to again.

Banks are just like any business. They are out to make profits. Do not put all your business in one bank. A grain of sand or a grain of wheat contains more knowledge than a library; all we have to do is to ask, ask and ask. Creativity is not a function of size. Small is beautiful. A smart chartered accountant may be more effective than the biggest accounting firm. Don’t be afraid of your auditors. Massage their egos and they will help you to improve your profits by telling you about avoidable activities. Before you kick the dog, Find out the name of its master. Not even the most productive cow can be milked forever without investment. Be patient while analyzing and impatient while executing. The best photograph in the world is no good if it is still in somebody’s camera. Too many people care more about always doing things the right way, rather than doing the right thing. A company is a long shadow of the boss. A bend in the road is not the end of road unless you fail to make the turn. The race for Quality has no finish line. Some people dream of Success, while others wake up and work hard at it. One man with courage makes a majority. What is life without an impossible dream It’s important to know what people expect from you. Then, of course you surprise them by giving more. Business is a “get-things-done” situation A person who uses his imagination creatively may do better than a person with more resources of men, money and materials. Get rid of gray thinking every night while you are trying to sleep. Hundreds of businessmen have succeeded without an M.B.A. but none without common sense. Knowledge and good manners are equally essential for success in business. Management attracts capital, and capital attracts men. It cannot be done any other way. Managers do things the right way - Leaders do the right things. Many companies do not have exit gates for ideas, paper, and people products. Many people have lost their business because they expanded. Minefields of the business world: Anger, jealousy, and revenge. You must first clearly see a thing in your mind before you can do it. Profit is important, but you must invest to build up assets, which can cash in the future. Never lose your curiosity. It is what keeps your mind agile. What are you doing today to be in business tomorrow? A simple match - stick is a profitable and pocketable fire. But, imagine life without it. All too often people believe that creativity automatically leads to innovation. Always be a front seater. You will start feeling bigger and smarter. Ask and you shall receive; Demand and you will get less.

By silence, I hear other men’s imperfections and conceal my own. Creativity is thinking up new things; innovation is doing new things. There is no shortage of creativity or creative people; the shortage is of innovators. Don’t destroy your spirit for “this quarter” or “this year” gains. Don’t change with the change; Change before the change. Ideas are useless unless used. It is a funny thing about life; if you refuse to accept anything but the best, you very often get it. It is easy to give money to those who have talent, but almost impossible to give talent to those who have money. It is the first step that is difficult. Knowledge and timber shouldn’t be much used till they are seasoned. Little thieves are hanged, but great ones escape. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering. Many of us have secure cabins on sinking ships. Most of us have a weakness for self-depreciation. Watch out! My shopping was shopping for knowledge. Never bet more on a sure thing than you can afford to lose. Never explain your troubles to anyone. No one is interested in wasting time to hear your troubles. No one can ever insult you when you know your own worth. Shooting fish in a barrel may not be sporting. But if the purpose is to get fish, it works. Oil is lubrication between machine parts, but creates friction among nations. When a little voice inside says “no”, don’t bully it. Smile big! A big smile gives you confidence. The higher the monkey climbs the more he shows his tail. The day you get the big idea is the day to begin to improve that idea. The higher a man goes, the narrower is thinking becomes. Therefore, watch out. The greater the storm, the sooner it’s over. To make a one-pound comb of honey, bees must collect nectar from about 2 million flowers. We are often our own worst enemy. When our small children hit a table, we blame the table! Wrong training. When you are No. 2 or 3, try harder. And you are No.1; try even harder. When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on. A man is not finished when he is defeated; he is finished when he quits. Difference between RUNNING the business and RUINING the business is ‘I’. One who talks to you about himself – ‘he is boosting’. One who talks to you about others – ‘he is gossiping’. One who talks to you about yourself – ‘he is an intelligent conversationalist’. When the going gets tough, the tough gets going. Success is never ending; failure is never final. Good conscience is reverberations of god.

If you plan, you get results. If you do not, you get consequences. Winners never quit. Quitters never win. Mind is like wet cement. Whatever falls on it, it will make impression. If you want to be a good leader, you need to be a good servant. ‘You’ and ‘me’ are not required when ‘he’ is not there. Whatever you do, there will be people to criticize. So, continue to do what you feel right. Nurture good habits, foster better thoughts, share the best skills. Defeat the defeat before defeat defeats you. Anger is one letter shorter of danger. One having silver in head should have gold in his pocket. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Living too long is a greater concern than dying soon. A meeting is a gathering of important people who cannot singly decide anything, but together can decide that nothing can be done. Men may doubt what you say, but they will believe what you do. One who reaches for the biggest fruit must have a friend with strong shoulders to stand on. He who wishes to secure his off spring’s future must cautiously allow his money to grow. One, who is having the patience, earns the joy of seeing his hard earned wealth grow. An ounce of loyalty is worth a pound of cleverness. The fool wants others to see him, the wise man smiles in the audience. Everyone needs company. Do I have enough love to share my company with some one? If you give your heart to God, you will not get heart attacks. If a person hides his feelings, it is because there is something wrong with his feelings. The one who is honest and has a true heart will always feel light and tension free. If you enjoy praise, it means you can be easily hurt by defamation. If you love someone, you try to be like that person is. If we love God, should we not attempt to be godly? What separates a highly developed man from an animal? His thoughts. The greatest service is to share with others the joys of living. The victory means complete control over the sense organs. Love is universal. It has no limits. If you have the habit of minding other people’s business, your own business will become bankrupt. The quality of our thoughts determines our own personal degree of happiness. To tolerate someone else’s mistakes is one thing. To forgive them is even greater. If your mind is caught in bondages and problems of the past, you will not experience the joys of the present.

If I cling to the past, the present becomes difficult and the future seems impossible. If you want to advance in life, make sure that your wants’ don’t advance. I don’t know why we are here, but I am pretty sure that it is not in order to enjoy ourselves. Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake. Be nice to people on your way up because you meet them on your way down. The true measure of a man is how he treats someone who can do him absolutely no good. A clever man commits no miner blunders. First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight with you, then you win. The secret of success is to know something nobody else knows. No one can earn a billion dollars honestly. If women did not exist, all the money in the world would have no meaning. Well done is better than well said. A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity, an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficult. The art of enjoying every minute is to deal with only one minute at a time. It is good to forgive but even better to forget. Praising others is an investment, in securing appreciation for you. If you do wrong and try to prove you are right, time will smile at your foolishness. To give happiness to others is a great act of charity. Loneliness comes when we forget that God is our supreme companion. Learn to try saying “No”; it will be of more use to you than to be able to read Latin. Do not expect love and attention; give it instead. To be able to smile in the face of disaster is the result of a stable mind. Sticks and stones break bones – words often break relationship. Tears of love do not cause sorrow; they become pearls. Life is a flower of which love is the honey. Even the simplest task is difficult for the lazy man. Some people’s advice will only add vice to your life. Mercifulness makes us equal to gods. To taste the sweetness of life, you must have the power to forget the past. Anger makes you mad, why not be sensible? The greatest prayer is ‘PATIENCE’. Be yourself, be natural. It is far easier than pretending to be someone else. A man with bad temper is really angry with himself. In a bitter world, one drop of true love is an ocean in the desert. Never lose hope. Hope is a rope that swings you through life. The conduct of the parents is an education to the children. The only weapon that becomes sharper with constant use is tongue. Make effort to uplift yourself; do not degrade yourself.
