Thought of the Days

For the past few weeks one of my colleagues, Pankaj Arora, has been sending a mail every morning with the subject - Thought for the Day. Initially, like any other forwards, I would glance through the mail casually. But very soon his mail became a part of the morning. He was on leave for a week and every morning when I would open my mail I would feel something was missing. That's what I would say is becoming a habit. Good things come and become a part of your day, without you knowing what it has become.

Here is the collection, sent one each day.

When someone is telling you that you can't do something, don't quit, just smile and say I'LL SHOW YOU !!

"When You Do Anything New,
At First People Laugh At You,
Then They Challenge You,
Then They Watch You Succeed,
And Then....
They Wish They Are Like You"

You have enemies? Good.
That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life !!

"Many Of Life's Failures Are Men Who Did Not Realize How Close They Were To Success When They Gave Up"

Always mistrust a subordinate who never finds fault with his superior.

"Don't be Afraid of Pressure , Because Pressure is What turns a COAL into DIAMOND "

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.

"Do Not Be Afraid Of Going Slowly, But Of Standing Still”

Ship is safest at the harbour . But that's not the place it is meant for . 
"A hero is no braver than an ordinary man, but he is braver five minutes longer."
"I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work." 
- Thomas Edison 
Falling down is Not Defeat. Defeat is when one refuses to Get Up!!! 
"Your Life is Defined By How You Correct Mistakes & Not By How You Avoid Making Them"
"Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live" 
If you learn only methods, you'll be tied to your methods, 
but if you learn principles you can devise your own methods
"I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. 
I’ve lost almost 300 games. Twenty six 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
I’m a great believer in LUCK , 
and I find the harder I work the more I have of it .
The quality of a man's life is in direct proportion to his commitment to 
excellence,regardless of his chosen field of endeavor
"Vision without action is daydreaming and action without vision is a nightmare"
“We Cannot Direct The Wind… But We Can Adjust The Sails”
"We cannot hold a torch to light another's path without brightening our own" 
"Even if you are on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there"
There are three kinds of people in the world, the wills, the won'ts and the can'ts. 
The first accomplish everything; the second oppose everything; 
the third fail in everything.
Happiness doesn't mean everything's perfect. 
It just means you have decided to see beyond the imperfections!!
If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; 
that is where they should be. Now put foundations under them.”
There's something you may give, 
To a friend and a stranger too; 
It seems that when you give it, 
It's given back to you. 
This present is worth a million, 
But doesn't cost a dime; 
It's lasting in effect, 
But doesn't take much time, 
This simple little gesture 
Can make the day worthwhile; 
It's just as good as sunshine; 
It's what we call a smile
If An Egg Breaks By Outside Force, Life Ends, But...... 
If An Egg Breaks From Within, Life Begins, 
Great Things Always Begins From Within .
If You Think You Are Too Small To Have An Impact, 
Try Going To Bed With A Mosquito In The Room

When God Solves Your Problems, You Have Faith In His Abilities,
But When He Doesn't, Then Presume He Has Faith In Your Abilities
