7 Swami Vivekananda Quotes for Your Week

“Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life; dream of it; think of it; live on that idea. Let the brain, the body, 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, and this is the way great spiritual giants are produced.”

    I have loved reading the first one because it has made me feel very motivated. Being focused is 99% of success. Avoiding distractions is not a mean feat due it is much easier procrastinating the challenges and lie down in our comfort zones. When you are not focussed any issue is a good excuse to think that going forward is not the next step. That happens even when we know that that is the path which leads our dreams.

    I have read the third quote many times before but I really needed to have it in my mind today. I am sure it has not showed up on my screen by chance!!
