The Art of Winning
One who is only thinking about the result of the action is poor. One who is focused in the action and he does it 100%, is free. If you are participating in a race, you don’t look this side and that side – who is running faster than me? What do you do? You look at your track and you run 100%. When you put your 100%, even if you lose, it gives you relief, because you utilized your maximum capacity, you did your 100%. But if you compare yourself and try to trip somebody and make them fall, you are going to trip yourself. That’s not winning a race. By tripping somebody even if you win, it is really a loss. So, you focus yourself 100%, you do your 100%, that will bring you satisfaction, “I did all that I could do, and now I am free.” – SriSri RaviShankar
Strength and Courage
When there is chaos, there is confusion; when there are problems all around you, then calmness is needed the most; wisdom is most valuable then. When life is a challenge, that’s when all the skills are needed from within you. When people blame you, when they don’t understand you, that’s when you need the inner strength to smile. When things don’t go the way you want them to, that’s when you need the endurance, the strength and courage to remain unperturbed.
