Top 10 MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. QUOTES

quotes-you-dont-have-to-see.jpg

Today is Martin Luther King jr’s day (15th January) . In 1964, King was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his instrumental role in pushing for greater racial equality through nonviolent civil disobedience. Behind his booming voice and poignant appeals for racial healing were his driving values of courage, love, forgiveness, and above all, hope.

Thank you, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the commitment to equality, hope and love is as important for humanity today as it ever was. Thank you for demonstrating how to lead in divisive times. How to be a steadfast for hope and love in the face of hatred. On this day where we celebrate your life, we have to remember what you would have done. You would not let the hate win…you would use love, kindness, and a desire for freedom and equality to overcome. So will we.

Inspiring words as we celebrate MLKJ Day .What do you need to take the first step towards? The best news? You get to build the staircase as you go ❤️ You really don’t need to see the whole staircase, just go!

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
The time is always right to do what is right.
In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.

Martin-Luther-King-Jr-Only-in-the-darkness-can-you-see-the-stars.jpg
Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.
Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend.

Quote-martin-luther- king.jpg
We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.
Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.

martin-luther- king-quotes.jpg
I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.
We are not makers of history. We are made by history.
The quality, not the longevity, of one’s life is what is important.

Martin Luther King Jr.: Keep Moving

Martin Luther King Jr. gives an inspiring speech about designing your life’s blueprint, and reminds us that whatever you do, you must always keep moving.

Transcript:

“This is the most important and crucial period of your lives, for what you do now and what you decide now at this age may well determine which way your life shall go. The question is, whether you have a proper, a solid, and a sound blueprint. I want to suggest some of the things that should be in your life’s blueprint. Number one in your life’s blueprint should be a deep belief in your own dignity, your own worth and your own somebodiness. Don’t allow anybody to make you feel that you are nobody. Always feel that you count. Always feel that you have worth, and always feel that your life has ultimate significance.

“Secondly, in your life’s blueprint, you must have as a basic principle the determination to achieve excellence in your various fields of endeavor. You’re going to be deciding as the days and the years unfold what you will do in life, what your life’s work will be. Once you discover what it will be, set out to do it and to do it well. Be a bush if you can’t be a tree. If you can’t be a highway, just be a trail. If you can’t be the sun, be a star, for it isn’t by size that you win or you fail, be the best of whatever you are.

“Finally, in your life’s blueprint must be a commitment to the eternal principals of beauty, love, and justice. Well life for none of us has been a crystal stair, but we must keep moving, we must keep going. If you can’t fly, run. If you can’t run, walk. If you can’t walk, crawl, but by all means, keep moving.”(Source:Goalcast)

5 Super Inspiring Quotes To Fire Up Your Career Mojo

Do you know what is mitochondria?

If you quickly shuffle back to Class 8 biology, you will know – mitochondria are the powerhouse of cells. All the energy is generated there. All the fire within you, is generated there. And that’s what some super inspiring quotes are – The mitochondria of inspiration. Though, to not make it sound geeky, I will stick to the word ‘powerhouse’.

Below are 5 super inspiring quotes for you, if your Career Mojo regularly feels confused:-

  1. “Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.” – Mark Twain
  2. “When defeat comes, accept it as a signal that your plans are not sound, rebuild those plans, and set sail once more toward your coveted goal.” – Napoleon Hill, Think and Grow Rich
  3. “The difference between great people and everyone else is that great people create their lives actively, while everyone else is created by their lives, passively waiting to see where life takes them next. The difference between the two is the difference between living fully and just existing. “- Michael E. Gerber 
  4. “The greatest danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that our aim is too low and we reach it.” – Michaelangelo  
  5. “I am not a product of my circumstances. I am a product of my decisions.” – Stephen Covey

Use whatever it takes to keep your Mojo fire burning.

One Life ! Do it very well.

Look for good in everything

Good Morning/Evening everyone ! Today’s Quote ..

“Train your mind and heart to see the good in everything. There is always something to be grateful for.” 
— Unknown Author

Finding the positive qualities in other people is an important part of your personal development. As you get better at finding the positive aspects of other people, you become more proficient at finding the positive aspects of yourself. 

I’ve  learnt to remind myself that I don’t know the other persons full story. I recently came across the saying “Don’t judge my story based on the chapter you happened to walk in on.” Even when you know someone well, you can’t assume to know what’s going on in their head or heart or life – at any given point in time.

I also find that if I am bothered by someone’s behavior, realizing that it’s probably not directed at me, but rather an expression of how they’re feeling at that point of time, helps me to see the situation from a more objective standpoint.

Seeing the good in other people is a challenging pursuit.Basic social skills like smiling and maintaining eye contact will help.Start noticing only positive intentions underlying peoples’ actions and forgive them for these actions.

When you look for the beauty in every person and situation, life becomes so much better. When you can see the good in everything, you will be genuinely happy and enjoy life so much more

How do you look for good in others ? Let’s get the conversation going in the comment section.

Hustle

hustle-shirt8Today’s word is Hustle.

Ridiculously awesome  things come to those who hustle.

I love this quote from Muhammad Ali

“Never Lose Sight Of The Goal. Always Remember Why You Hustle”

Don’t just dream for it Instead hustle for it . If you want to be successful in your future don’t hesitate to hustle now. Keep on hustling because there is no shortcuts.

Do you know ?! It’s easy to stand with the crowd but difficult to shine apart . Be a hustler who  learns from his mistakes and tries to improve every single day.

Hustle in the silence . Let your success makes the noise .

5 ways to motivate you to hustle harder

Lesson 1 : Surround yourself with positive people.

Lesson 2 : Avoid negative people and situations .

Lesson 3 : Write down your goals and focus on it .

Lesson 4 : Also write down what stops you from hustle harder and try  to solve those issues.

Lesson 5 : Remember why you started . It will drive you to focus and hustle more .

Lesson 6 : Keep learning things which will help you while hustling to achieve your goals.

Check below for my favorite hustle quotes

I will wind up with Abraham Lincoln’s quote

Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle”.

Hustle Harder guys ! All the very best !!

You are not a tree..MOVE

ad

Hey Guys, Good Morning !

Happy Friday ! Today’s quote

If you don’t like where you are move you’re not a tree.Many people in this world spend their time being unhappy, complaining about where they are or where their life is headed without making any effort to change things or make the situation better. If you are unhappy where you are then you have the ability to move, shaking things up and changing your situation so that it is better than before. You are not a tree, you have not put down permanent roots that anchor you in place. You can move and change your location, as well as your situation, without too much trouble and effort. People have been changing their locations and migrating towards a better life for thousands of years and this is still a possibility today. You can stay where you are and stay unhappy with your circumstances or you can move and possibly change things for the better.

If you do not like your current location then moving could solve your problems and help you find greater happiness. Whether you are hoping to find a better neighborhood, more friends, a job that offers better pay or benefits, or just a change of scenery and a different pace then relocating could offer this to you. There are many places where you might be happier and have a life that is more fulfilling but you have to take the first step and make a move if you want things to change. Don’t be one of those people who are always complaining about where they live or how their life is turning out without ever trying to change things or make their situation better.

Fail Forward !

22835377_2065842860097434_1291544535_n

Today’s Life lesson

Hi friends, Good Morning !

Do you know what is mean by fail forward ? Failure ?

Failure is stepping stone to success.Failure is not the opposite of success It’s a part of success .

Quote : ” Even if you are on the right track You’ll get run over if you just sit there” – Unknown

Standing still has never helped anyone get anywhere. Keep failing forward!

Failure is a necessary part of progress! Fail forward and never give up! It’s all part of the learning process! It’s better to try and fall than to never try at all.It’s not how we fall It’s how we get back up.If you’re not failing, you’re not growing!!

You can’t let your failure define you .. You have to let your failure teach you.Yes Learn from your mistakes and move forward .No one said building an empire was easy, so go out there and take risks. If you fail, accept it, learn from it, and move forward. At least you are trying ! Before you start beating yourself up, remember. Life is a series of lessons learned only through a series of mistakes. Our biggest missteps often lead us directly to our most powerful breakthroughs. You’re doing awesome guys ! Lets wind up with Pitbull and Michael Jordan’s words today :

Wise words from Pit bull. . .
No overnight success, just years and years of doing, learning and failing. .

Be You ! Be Yourself !

Be You ! Be Yourself !

 

ase

when did you stop believing in yourself ? or when did you start to allow people to treat you like crap?
Who told you to do that?

I know this thing about you… It’s that you are extraordinary. There’s only one of you… That alone should be enough reason for you to understand just how beautiful and unique you really are…… just one! No one can replicate you.Always remember that you’re absolutely unique . Feel comfortable in your own skin.

When you show up Authentic, you create the space for others to do the same. 
Walk in your truth. Be you. Be your own light in this world.
It’s called Originality and the world needs that from you.

Never compare yourself with others.You’re different from  others . Don’t be afraid of being different Be afraid of being the same as everyone.

It’s so easy to fall into a trap of comparison.
Let me say this:
Comparison is the thief of joy, Don’t do it.  
No matter what.
It senseless and it’s not good for the human spirit.

You are Talented and Wonderfully made .. 
You are Loved, Beautiful, Talented and Amazing so why would you ever compare yourself to anybody else? 
Learn to Love yourself and all your imperfections .

You’re Blessed !

Today’s Lesson/Affirmation

Take small steps everyday

I love the below proverb

The man who removes a mountain begins by carrying away small stones.” – Chinese Proverb

Today is the day to take that one small step in the right direction . Start there . Then Repeat.

The key to achieving our goals lies in the small steps we make each day.In life a long journey to a far of place  starts with a one small step forward . Great things starts with one small step. No progress if you don’t step forward . All successful person are successful today because they have taken that one first step forward some day in their lives . Keep moving everyday no matter how big or small the steps are .. just keep stepping … Small steps each day will lead you to bigger goals and dreams . Each and every big things have only very small beginnings .

“Take small steps everyday and one day you’ll get there”  – Unknown.

Remember , A big empire is not built in a day , It’s built everyday .

What are you waiting for guys ! Are you ready to take that small step today !?

…take it today and every day….  🙂

Wishing you all a very productive day !
