45. Our truest life is when we are in dreams awake.

Henry David Thoreau

Dreams with open eyes are your deepest desires. Dreams are where reality does not rule. They are the world where you truly live. There are no boundaries, no limitations to pull you back. You do all that you always wanted to do but could not. They also give you a vision and a blueprint for planning. Those who do not dream of achieving something are as good as animals just surviving day to day. When you dream with your eyes open, you inspire yourself to convert your dreams into reality.

46. Life’s battles don’t always go to the stronger or faster man. But sooner or later the man who wins is the man who thinks he can.

If you think you’ll win, you’ve won. If you think you’ll rise, you’ve risen. Only when you think you can do something, you will go ahead and do it.

47. In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.

Albert Einstein

Difficult situations aren’t liked by anyone but it is in these times that we exercise our brains to the fullest in order to move out of the problem. If a problem is easy, others may have already attempted it and found a solution. People generally run out of ideas in difficult situation. So in these times, there is an opportunity for us to discover something that others may have attempted and left midway. If you are courageous enough to find opportunity in hardship, you are on the path to success.

48. Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.

Khalil Gibran

Life they say isn’t easy. Sometimes your tasks and challenges will be small, sometimes they will be big. Some may even scar you emotionally but what matters is how much you are willing to rise up from these setbacks and learn from them to be a better and stronger person. Such tests of time are like a battlefield and the courageous rise from the battle even though they have scars on their bodies. Similarly, cry if you must, be unhappy if it is the emotion you feel at the particular moment but never let it grab hold of you, shrug it off and move on.

49. Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.

Marianne Williamson

We often sabotage our own success by playing small and shrinking so that others don’t feel insecure in our company. Don’t possess a feeling of guilt in letting your lights shine even if it means shining above others. You were born to spread the light within you. By being a candle, you unconsciously serve in the darkness of others. If you achieve your goals, you automatically motivate others to do the same.
