Only those people achieve something significant in life who think big and devote all their energy and time to fulfil their dreams. They do not allow themselves to be carried away by negative thoughts as they may prove detrimental to their march on the path of success. They believe in changing the great thoughts into reality. They act and never rest because they know the worth of time and action. In the words of William Hazlitt—“Great thoughts reduced to practice become great acts.” Therefore, lift yourself high by thinking big and always aim to reach the top in whatever area you choose for yourself. If you are sincere and hard-working, nothing can stop you from reaching the top. Your success will be an inspiration for others as well. Your strength acts as the moral strength for others and they emulate you.
In fact, the great English poet, William Shakespeare also believed in the immense capability of man. He once wrote – “We know what we are, but know not what we may be.” Your success depends on your capability to use your strength to the full. If you think positively and lay out a detailed plan for accomplishing your task, you can certainly become successful. The progress you make en route to your success is the result of your will and self-confidence and success is the fruit of your sincere and continuous efforts. Without self-confidence, you cannot dream of success. Self-realisation encourages you to act single-mindedly banking on your own strengths and never allows any negative thought to creep in your mind. Good thoughts breed confidence, whereas negative thoughts hold you back.
Self-realisation is the state of mind which encourages one to act with determination and freely expand one’s intellectual horizon. It makes the mind free and you can be in complete control of your thoughts. No man is free who is not a master of himself. If you have got the power of exercising control over your thought, you are bound to succeed. You will at once be able to choose between not only the good and the bad, but also between the good and the best.
Ideas are undoubtedly the root of creation. But nothing big can be thought of without making a right choice. For example, if you have an inclination towards sports and feel like excelling in the area, you should work ceaselessly to hone your skill under a good coach; if you want to crack a competitive examination you should prepare properly mastering the syllabus by diligent study. There is no short cut to success. All the great scientists, business leaders, scholars, leaders were like us in the beginning. They made the right choice, started making efforts in the right direction, knew pros and cons of their trade and eventually succeeded. “He who chooses the beginning of a road chooses the place it leads to. It is the means that determines the end.” Well begun is half done. You can think of marching in the right direction if you have a well-laid-out plan. You are advised to make right choices, know the pros and cons of your assignment and take charge of the best.
Wishing you all the success,
