Quotes from "The Monk who sold his Ferrari".

 Here are some of the inspiring and motivating lines from the best seller "The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari". You should read this book once If you haven't read this book. Here is a review of it.                                     "The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari" Review.

Here are some of the powerful lines.

  • People who study others are wise but those who study themselves are enlightened.
  • Quick fixes don't work. All lasting inner changes requires time and effort. Persistence is the mother of change. I am not saying that it will take years to make a profound changes in your life. But to reach this destination, you must not get hung up to the outcome. Instead, enjoy the process of growth and expansion. Ironically, the less you focus on the end result, the quicker it will come.
  • I've learned that everything happens for a reason. Every event has a why and all the adversity teaches us a lesson. Never regret your past. Accept it as a teacher and move on.

  • Push yourself to do more and to experience more. Don't accept a life of mediocrity when you hold such infinite potential within the fortress of your mind. Dare to tap into your greatness.
  • Worry drains the mind of its power and, sooner or later, it injures the soul.
  • Success on outside means nothing unless you also have success within.
  • It's not what you will get out of the book that is so enriching - it is what the books will get out of you that will ultimately change your life.
  • Ancient rule of twenty-one: If you do anything for twenty-one days, it will be installed as a habit.

  • Self-mastery and consistent care of one's mind , body and soul are essential to finding one's highest self and living the life of one's dreams. How can you care for others even if you can not take care of yourself ? How can you do good even if you don't feel good ?
  • The quality of your life will come down to quality of your contribution.
  • People who study others are wise but those who study themselves are enlightened.

  • Take time to think. Discover your real reasons for being here and then have the courage to act on it.
  • "Investing in yourself is the best investment you will ever make. It will not only improve your life, it will also improve the life of all those around you".
  • Your "I CAN" is more important than your "IQ".

    • If you don't even know where you are going, how will you ever know when you get there?

    • Those who are truly enlightened know what they want out of life, emotionally, materially, physically and spiritually.  Clearly defined priorities and goals for every aspect of your life will serve a role similar to that played by a lighthouse, offering you guidance and refuge when the seas become rough.
    • Identify the things that are holding you back. Are you scared of speaking or do you have trouble in your relationships? Do you lack a positive attitude or do lack energy?  Make a written inventory of your weaknesses. Satisfied people are far more thoughtful than others. Take time to reflect on what it is that might be keeping you from the life you really want to know deep down you can have.  Once you have identified what your weaknesses are, the next step is to face them head on and attack your fears.
    • Fear is nothing more than a monster, you have created, a negative stream of consciousness. 

    • Fear is a conditioned response: a life-sucking habit that can easily consume your energy, creativity and spirit if you are not careful. When fear rears its ugly head, beat it down quickly. The best way to do that is to do the thing you fear. Understand the anatomy of fear. It is your own creation. Like any other creation, it is just as easy to tear it down as it is to erect it.
    • You are what you think about all day long. You are also what you say to yourself all day long. The words you say to yourself affect your self image  and your self image determines what actions you take.
    • You truly can not afford the luxury of one negative thought - Not even one.
