Here is a brilliant quote from the Dalai Lama that had I just had to share as soon as I saw it.
“Human potential is the same for all. Your feeling, “I am of no value”, is wrong. Absolutely wrong. You are deceiving yourself. We all have the power of thought – so what are you lacking? If you have willpower, then you can change anything. It is usually said that you are your own master.” Dalai Lama
Isn’t that right? If you have the willpower, you can change anything. Along with intelligence and self-control, willpower is the personal trait most predictive of a good life.
Success in life depends on your ability to do what you want to do. If you want to manage your learning and your life, you have to have self-control so you can decide and then act. That’s it. Have the will power and make it happen!
