A day that you have lived fully was truly your day.
All other days are simply dates on your calendar!

THERE are two ways to lead your life. One is to simply pass your time. The other is to use your time meaningfully. If you fall into the first category, you are just wasting your life. By spending your days meaningfully, you are truly living and making proper use of this amazing blessing that is life.

Every new day that dawns brings with it many opportunities. These opportunities do not loudly announce themselves. It is for us to recognize and use them in a fruitful manner that can spread benefit to others.

You need to skilfully discern the opportunities that come your way every day. Recognize those that are truly for you and those that are not. Learn to appreciate these opportunities and avail them in the best and most realistic way, but be aware of the limits within which youmust remain. You need to be sensitive that in the process you do not transgress into another's territory.

A day that you have lived fully was truly your day.
All other days are simply dates on your calendar.

The many opportunities that come your way are not exclusively for you. There are several others who are equally motivated. Success in your life can happen only by cooperating with others, never through conflict. Develop the skill of navigating your life without clashing with them.

Just as you have some interests, others do too. A smart person carefully avoids clashing with other people’s interests and sails ahead to attain his life goals.

 It depends on you

Mutual conflicts have always been a feature
of human society, there is no escape from this
situation. Whether you entangle yourself in
such conflicts or keep away from them
depends totally on you. 

Prepare Today

Death is a reminder of the reality that there
is a world Hereafter. We must prepare
ourselves in this world to be able to find a
proper place in the next world.
