Quotes that I read everyday :)

There are different ways people stay inspired, for me reading quotes and success stories gives the extra push to go that extra mile.

I found this post on LinkedIn and could not help but post it here:

Be careful reading these quotes, they might just inspire you to do things you dreamed of doing, they might help you succeed and might even make you happier.

"All our dreams can come true - if we have the courage to pursue them"

Walt Disney

"Your time is limited, don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma, which is living the result of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinion drowned your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition, they somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary."

Steve Jobs

“Life is short, live it. Love is rare, grab it. Anger is bad, dump it. Fear is awful, face it. Memories are sweet, cherish it.”


"Don’t say you don’t have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresea, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein."

H. Jackson Brown Jr.

"Fear less, hope more, eat less, chew more, whine less, breathe more, talk less, say more, hate less, love more, and good things will be yours."

Swedish Proverb

“Accept responsibility for your life. Know that it is you who will get you where you want to go, no one else.”

Les Brown

"When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us."

Helen Keller

"Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present."

Jim Rohn

"Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude."

Thomas Jefferson

"The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack in will."

Vince Lombardi

"It is hard to fail, but it is worse never to have tried to succeed."

Theodore Roosevelt

"Success does not consist in never making blunders, but in never making the same one a second time."

Josh Billings

“I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”

Michael Jordan

“You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.”

Wayne Gretzky

“In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure.”

Bill Cosby

"It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare; it is because we do not dare that things are difficult."


"It is only the very wisest and the very stupidest who cannot change."


"Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do."

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit."


"Vision without action is daydream. Action without vision is nightmare."

Japanese Proverb

"A goal is a dream with a deadline."

Napoleon Hill

"Arriving at one goal is the starting point to another."

John Dewey

“Build your own dreams, or someone else will hire you to build theirs.”

Farrah Gray

“There are two primary choices in life: to accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing them.”

Denis Waitley

“Good things come to those who wait… greater things come to those who get off their ass and do anything to make it happen.”


“The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.”

Lao Tzu

Awesome Stuff Online this week (ASO) - 1

I am in Volga conference room (Infosys towers office) - doing our final checks before we go for our big beat launch in Orlando (FL). For some reasons, I have always loved working on weekends it gives me an adrenal rush. I have also noticed on weekends my productivity is almost twice my productivity during weekdays :)

Okay, now coming to main topic. I have been reading some awesome blogs in recent past and wanted to share them with all my readers and wasn’t sure how do I do it. Now here is a million dollar idea :) I will post a blog every week that say’s: ASO this week. It will cover various aspects of life, management gyan, online stuff, social media tips and what not!! You name it you will find it here.

Without any further delay – here you go:

I have been a huge fan of Claire Diaz-Ortiz – she writes awesome stuff on social media. She has been working on a very interesting stuff “Bringing Vatican Pope onto Twitter”. During this project here are some awesome lessons she learnt:

I love her first point: In 2013, Everyone Needs to Be Social (Even the Pope).

Have you faced a rejection off late? How does it feel when someone rejects your proposal, idea, thought or anything??? I know it SUCKS :(

Read this:

Here is a quick look at rejection therapy by author himself:

“I was turned down by a prominent investor. I wanted the investment so bad that I had dreamt about it on five different occasions. The final rejection hurt as if Santa Claus showed up in person and told me he’s not real, and then ran away with my gifts.

I then turned inward, and wanted to focus on building myself with the necessary entrepreneurial skillsets. My experience revealed that my fear of rejection was real, so I wanted to tackle it first. I searched, and found Jason Comely’s Rejection Therapy concept through FounderDating Forum. I liked it so much and decided to do it right away, and vlog it to keep myself accountable to going through the whole 100 days.”

Happy reading :)
