Happiness is a shadow. If you chase it, it moves further away.

13 But if you turn to make others happy, it will follow you.

Make others Happy and be Happy.

Life is a Canvas.Every action of ours is a stroke of paint and at the end,

14 how beautiful our painting is will depend upon all our strokes, all our Actions.

Live! Don’t just Exist!!! Don’t drag through life . . .

15 Live each day as a Celebration!

If you don’t like the Fruits you are growing,

16 then change the Seeds you are sowing.

Living Life without a Purpose is like having an ice cream cone

17 in your hand, letting it melt and drip without eating it.

It was yours to Enjoy, but you lost it!

I would rather live 10 years doing what

18 I Love, than drag through Life 50 years, hating every day I Live.

In life what you ASPIRE will TRANSPIRE

19 — be it Loss or Gain, Sun or Rain, Joy or Pain.

Don’t just Hurry, don’t just Haste. Don’t just Worry,

20 don’t just Waste. Life is a Treasure, Enjoy the Pleasure.

PEACE is the foundation of Happiness

21 — for where there is Anxiety, Tension and Turmoil, Joy cannot exist.

The Sun challenges us to Shine, the Clouds remind us to Move,

22 the Birds tell us we too can Fly and the Sky tells us that

there is no limit to our Dreams and Goals.

Contents

A moment spent in Sorrow or a moment spent in

23 Pain is a waste of a Great Treasure that you will never get again.

Enthusiasm is a Power that can give Dreams to the Dreamless,

24 Life to the Lifeless, and Hope to the Hopeless.

There are people who Dream and there are people who Scream.

25 There are people who Cry and there are people who Fly.

The good news is that this is a CHOICE!

You can be who you want to be, if you stop being what others

26 want you to be. Live your Life Philosophy.

It may be a Mountain or a Tree, a River or a Bee…

27 learn to enjoy the little things in Life.

Even one day lost in misery is a great loss, for the day will never

28 come back again. You lose 24 hours of Happiness, Joy & Bliss.

Live each day in Happiness.

Never worry about the Past, it brings Tears. Don’t think too

29 much about the Future, it brings Fears. Live in the Present Moment

with a Smile, it brings Cheers!!

Life is made of Pleasures, Life is made of Pain.

30 Don’t just enjoy the Rainbow, also Learn to dance in the Rain.

With Time, you can create Money, but with money,

31 you cannot create Time. So Time is more valuable than Money.

There can be no Positive result from a Negative attitude.

32 Think Positive. Live Positive.

Contents

Life is made up of Moments. Moments create Days,

33 days create Months, months create Years and years create LIFE.

Lose the moment and you lose Life.

Be thankful that you are on your feet,

34 for there are people who can’t even walk down the street.

Don’t be amongst those who are trying to build a better Tomorrow.

35 You can have a better tomorrow only if your Today is better than your Yesterday.

Life is like a beautiful bird that comes to your hand.

36 If you let it go, it will fly into the sky, never to return.

First you Yearn to Earn. Then you Learn that others will Burn

37 what you Earn. Stop! Turn and Spend before your End.

It is strange — people chase and hoard money,

38 and even cheat the world to become rich only to finally leave it all behind.

The Wind that Blows, the Water that Flows, the Sun that Glows,

39 are all proof that a Power exists. Believe and Experience the Universal Power.

Think of Today, not Tomorrow. It’s time to be Happy,

40 not live a Life of Sorrow. Find out those things that make you

Glad & eliminate those that make you Sad.

Of course, things will go wrong. Move on!

41 Don’t let the little snags affect the progress of your life.

Don’t just GO through life, GROW through it for

42 Life comes to you only once…never to return!

Climb the Ladder of Life, step by step.

Contents

First, know where you want to go.

43 Then, go where you want to go. You are your own pilot

and you can choose your Destination.

Tremendous energy lies within each one of us.

44 Alas! We don’t discover and unleash it and when we die,

we lose it because we didn’t use it.

Look at yourself—are your eyes Twinkling?

45 Is your heart Dancing? Are your lips Smiling?

If yes, then you are truly enjoying Life.

Whenever a problem arrives,

46 do three things—Face it, Fight it and Finish it.

There are people who are dancing through Life

47 and others who are crying through Life. The irony is that

Life is the same — what we do is purely our Choice.

We all program our gadgets — computers,

48 mobiles etc. But we don’t Program our Mind in such a way

that we can REJOICE and BE HAPPY.

Enter Faith, exit Doubt. Enter Hope, exit Worry.

49 Enter Courage, exit Fear. Let the Positive enter

your Life so that the Negative exits.

Life is not a Race, but we still continue the Chase

50 and try to be an Ace. It’s time to get out of this Maze

and Truly Live with Grace.

Some people live such boring lives; it’s Black & White, so dead!

51 I choose to color my life with Fun, some Blue, some Green, some Red.

Look at people around you. Some Inspire you,

52 some Perspire you. Be with those that build Energy in you.

Contents

A woman was counting her grams of gold in Sorrow,

53 while another, who had nothing, still counted her blessings in Joy.

Happiness is not what you HAVE, but how you FEEL.

We don’t have the choice to hold a minute from passing,

54 but we do have the Choice to make that moment magical.

Life is a Treasure Chest and we all have the key to it.

55 Unfortunately, many of us don’t unlock the treasure,

but take the key to our grave.

Be Grateful you are not like a rock that has no Choice.

56 The Sun Shines on it, the Waves Splash at it. You have a Choice

to move and to make your Dreams come true.

The wise respond. The foolish react.

57 The wise think & then act. The foolish act and then regret.

Pain may create Misery, Pain may give you Sorrow.

58 It may trouble you Today but will be gone tomorrow.

Pain has its ways; it comes but never Stays.

Days are like trains; they will just zoom by. You can be zapped

59 seeing them pass or you can jump on to one of them and enjoy the Journey.

If you don’t get a kick out of the job you are doing,

60 you better kick it and look for another one. Love what you do or just don’t do it.

When the toughest of problems strike me,

61 I just remind myself that God is on my side.

Do it because you WANT to, not just because you HAVE to.

62 When you do what you want, you create an Unstoppable POWER.

Contents

There will be things that will go bad and make you sad.

63 Don’t worry. PEP yourself with Positive energy and you will soon be glad.

It doesn’t cost much to be Happy if the currency of

64 your Heart is the blowing of the breeze and the swaying of the trees.

You spend your TIME to make a DIME.

65 You lose your HEALTH to make your WEALTH, but at the end

it is FUNNY because you leave back all your MONEY.

One who lives with Faith says IT WILL HAPPEN,

66 while the one who lives without it asks WILL IT HAPPEN?

Smile all the while because life is just a mile.

67 Enjoy the journey before it’s over.

Those who take Risks overcome their Fears and Tears over the Years.

68

We choose to do things that make us Cry. We don’t know Why.

69 We blame the Sky. We do not Try. Oh My! What a way to die.

Let us not become so busy making a living that we forget

70 to enjoy our Life. Every day of Life is meant to be Lived and Enjoyed.

Choices, not Chances, are responsible for the quality

71 of our Life. Spend time to Think, Reflect, Introspect and then Choose.

Learn to be Positive always. In pleasure or Pain, in Sun or Rain,

72 in Loss or Gain, always be POSITIVE!

Contents

Faith gives Courage to the heart and Energy

73 to the mind to make the Impossible Possible.

The Challenge in Life is not to have the absence of Fear,

74 but to have the Courage to overcome it.

Live before the Journey is over. Live before it is too late.

75 LIVE because you deserve to.

If we can be Glad…But we choose to be Sad, we are Mad!

76

We all come and go out of this world in the same way.

77 The Destination is the same. The difference is the Journey.

Some Enjoy it, some don’t.

Far more than the shield is the Pleasure I get on the field…

78 the Joy of the chase is greater than the result of the race.

Every moment of Life is a Challenge to Choose.

79 Some Win, some Lose.

A Millionaire becomes richer not when he earns his next Million

80 but when he spends it on a Noble Cause.

Why destroy this Morn, by a Past that is dead & Gone

81 and a Future not yet Born!

Sky is not the limit if your heart is in it,

82 for when you do something with all your heart, it just happens.

Contents

Negative people don’t need to be defeated.

83 They defeat themselves with their Negative Attitude.

Be POSITIVE always.

Look at a stonecutter hitting at the rock.

84 Nothing happens at first, but after many strikes, the rock eventually cracks.

In Life, don’t Doubt. Keep at it and it will happen.

It is ironic that we are particular about flushing out

85 all the dirt through the Drain, but we continue to retain a lot of it in our Brain.

If you have not learnt anything, but have learnt one thing

86 that the Goal of life is to be Happy, you have learnt everything!

I invite and acknowledge only Positive thoughts

87 and people that create Happiness in my Life.

What a paradox! People hate to be miserable

88 but choose to be miserable. Remember this the next time misery arrives.

Anyone can exist. Most fools do. It takes guts to truly Live.

89

The Richest person is not the Happiest person,

90 the Happiest person is the Richest person.

The Mind can think only one thought at a time.

91 If your mind is occupied by a meaningless thought,

you block a meaningful thought from entering your mind.

Life is all about TODAY. There is no guarantee about Tomorrow.

92 So Live meaningfully! Rejoice, Value life and Make a Difference Today!

Contents

I am not perfect. Are you? Let us accept the fact

93 that nobody is perfect. Let us learn to accept our imperfections

as well as those of others.

When things don’t happen, people get Sick.

94 They see time Tick and they want it Quick.

They forget that Success happens brick by brick.

Money is important, no doubt it is. But is it everything?

95 That’s the question we miss when we make our Choices in Life.

If you keep doing things that don’t matter to you,

96 you will not have time to do things that really do.

People ask, “How can I enjoy life when I have problems?”

97 You may have problems, but you can still enjoy life and be happy.

Not truly living in the present moment & later regretting

98 is like closing your eyes when a peacock is dancing,

only to want to see it dance once it is gone.

In life, some laugh, some cry, some live, some die.

99 The choice is ours to crawl or to fly.

In the pursuit of acquiring Treasures, we lose the ONE

100 treasure that we truly possess – Life. Let us not lose Life

in the wild pursuit of other things.

Life is like an Hourglass. The grains of sand drop

101 one by one and then it’s all over. Live before you die.

Very often, we let little things spoil some of our

102 most important treasures—our Moment, our Day, our Life.

Contents

Everyday there will be an opportunity to Smile or to Frown,

103

to Dance or to Drown, to be Glad or Sad. It’s a Choice!

I am the Richest man on the Earth because I am the

104

Happiest man on the Earth. After all, isn’t Happiness

the Greatest Wealth in Life?

Those who have FAITH believe that the Sun will Rise.

105

They don’t wake up in the morning and look out to see

if the sun has failed them.

Like a feather in the air, like a leaf in the sea,

106

I surrender to Thee, I surrender to Thee.

If only I had spent my time spending my money

107

rather than just making it, I would have died a happier man.

The Achiever says his Thoughts led him to Success

108

and the Criminal says his Thoughts led him to Crime.

Everybody thinks; but what we Think determines our Destiny.

The Destination of Life is Death.

109

Enjoy the Journey called Life before it is over.

Problems are like Balloons. We let them unnecessarily blow up.

110

Instead of enjoying the Present Moment,

111

why Dream of things beyond your reach and become miserable?

Have a Blast; Life won’t last!

112

Make the Best of Today, before it is gone!

RVM Quote 1

Happiness is a shadow.

If you chase it, it moves further away.

But if you turn to make others happy,

it will follow you.

Make others Happy and be Happy.

See a shadow; try chasing it. What happens when you do so? The shadow

moves farther away from you. Now turn around and walk a few steps. As

soon as you do so, the shadow will start following you. The same is the

case with happiness. Very often, people think that happiness is about

chasing what we want till we get it. But unfortunately that is just a whim.

The more mindlessly you will go after things, the further they will move

away. Why? Because as soon as you achieve something, instead of feeling

contented, you start craving for something else. And thus the chase never

ends. Realize this fact and stop chasing. Turn around and try making

others happy. As you do so, like a shadow, happiness will follow you too.

Try it today!

13

RVM Quote 2

Life is a Canvas.

Every action of ours is a stroke of paint

and at the end, how beautiful our painting is

will depend upon all our strokes, all our Actions.

What makes a painting beautiful? Each and every stroke of the brush,

each and every color that is put into it and each and every element that is

drawn makes it a masterpiece. So is with life. You are given a canvas and it

is up to you to draw what you want – to choose your strokes, your colors

and your elements. However, you should be conscious while making that

choice. Pick your thoughts, actions and habits thoughtfully because they

will lead you to that beautiful painting. In the end, it is you who will decide

whether your painting is just some haphazard brushstrokes or a

masterpiece.

14

RVM Quote 3

Live! Don’t just Exist!!!

Don’t drag through life . . .

Live each day as a Celebration!

Live each day as if it is a day of celebration. Don’t just be a part of the day;

live it and join the party. I know that you have limited your celebrations to

just birthdays and festivals. But aren’t there just very few of such days?

And barring these few days, you follow the same old monotonous time

table every day.

Today, try doing things in a different way. Even if you are heading to your

workplace, Rejoice and be Happy – as if it is a day of celebration. Gather

your colleagues and share a funny story. Go out for lunch together. Plan

the next office picnic. Celebrate today before it gets over.

15

RVM Quote 4

If you don’t like the Fruits

you are growing,

then change the Seeds

you are sowing.

There’s a farmer who has sown tomato seeds in his field hoping that

mango trees will grow out of them. And now, when the field is filled with

ripened tomatoes, the farmer complains as to why he didn’t get mangoes.

Are you able to spot the foolishness of the farmer?

The same thing happens in life. You reap what you sow. If you don’t like

what life is giving you, change what you are giving to life. If you find

something missing in your life and you don’t know why it is so; introspect

on what you are doing and try doing it some other way.

16

RVM Quote 5

Living Life without a Purpose

is like having an ice cream cone in your hand,

letting it melt and drip without eating it.

It was yours to Enjoy, but you lost it!

I saw a child yearning and crying for a cone of ice cream. After his repeated

tantrums, he was given one. But instead of relishing the ice cream, he got

busy playing. Finally the ice cream melted and dripped away.

You are that child and your life is that ice cream cone. You try your hardest

to earn money and use every trick possible to please the boss. But when

you finally get a raise, you completely forget about spending it and get

busy with earning more. Stop it! When you get what you want, take a

break and enjoy it. Life is a gift. Don’t live it without purpose. Find out how

you want to enjoy it and then enjoy it. Grab the opportunity and enjoy life

while you can, instead of regretting it afterwards.

17

RVM Quote 6

I would rather live 10 years

doing what I Love, than drag

through Life 50 years, hating every day

I Live.

Look around and you will find two types of people – those who love what

they do and those who hate what they do. You too can choose to either

love life or hate it. If you love it, even a short span of 10 years will be

worthwhile. But if you hate it, even a long duration of 50 years will be

nothing but a drag. Hence, choose to love life. You will be happy, so will be

your family and anyone who will ever come in contact with you.

Remember, there is no sense in adding years to your life. What makes

sense is adding life to your years.

18

RVM Quote 7

In life what you ASPIRE

will TRANSPIRE

— be it Loss or Gain,

Sun or Rain, Joy or Pain.

Learn to attract positive vibes and discard the ones that are negative. The

secret of doing that is by taking charge of your mind. If your mind is a hub

of negative thoughts, you can only think in a passive manner. However, if it

is a pool of positive thoughts, you will attract only positive vibes and

nothing negative will come close.

Why does it work that way? Our thoughts are connected to our

superconscious mind, which is connected to the universe and it attracts

what you are thinking. All that your mind seeks will come to you. Hence,

what you Aspire, will Transpire. In the words of Paulo Coelho, “When you

want something, all the universe conspires in helping you achieve it.”

19

RVM Quote 8

Don’t just Hurry, don’t just Haste.

Don’t just Worry, don’t just Waste.

Life is a Treasure, Enjoy the Pleasure.

Life is a gift; a treasure. But are you enjoying this gift? For most of your life

you are busy running aimlessly so much so that you even forget where you

are heading. You hurry, you haste; you worry and you waste. I understand

that you want to live life to the fullest. But then you get busy with your

problems and complications. Realize that by the time you are done with

solving your problems, the gift of life would have passed by you. Problems

will linger around, but don’t get sucked into their vicious cycle. Stop

today! Enjoy the pleasure and the treasure called life.

20

RVM Quote 9

PEACE is the foundation of Happiness

— for where there is Anxiety,

Tension and Turmoil,

Joy cannot exist.

Many people try building a tower of happiness on a foundation of anxiety

and tension. In time, such a tower will crumble and fall. If you really want

to be happy, you must first learn to have Peace, Tranquility and Calmness.

These are the emotions on which happiness is built. People believe that

they can live a life full of tension and anxiety and still find happiness.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t work that way.

Peace is essential for finding lasting happiness. You might have all the

things that make you happy but if you lack peace, though you might have

your happiness, it will only be for a short period. Build your life’s

happiness tower over a strong foundation of PEACE.

21

RVM Quote 10

The Sun challenges us to Shine,

the Clouds remind us to Move,

the Birds tell us we too can Fly

and the Sky tells us that there is no limit

to our Dreams and Goals.

When was the last time you looked up at the Sun and challenged yourself

to shine brighter? And when was it that you looked at the clouds and

reminded yourself that you too can go wherever you want? How about

watching birds fly in the sky? Have you ever dreamt of having wings and

soaring in the boundless sky – capable of reaching any destination, any

height?

Take a cue from the nature around you and get inspired. Look up to the

Sun and gather your own radiance. Look at the clouds and roam like a free

spirit in the limitless sky. Look at the birds and no distance will be too far

for you. The Sun, the Moon, the stars, the birds, the animals and the

flowers – each of them remind us in their own way to expand our potential

to make all our dreams come true.

RVM Quote 11

A moment spent in Sorrow

or a moment spent in Pain

is a waste of a Great Treasure

that you will never get again.

Isn’t it ironic that while we all want to make every moment of our life

beautiful and happy, we often waste them in sorrow and pain? Thus we

lose such precious moments and then they never come back again.

Though we know that we are foolish in losing our life to negativity, we still

continue to do so.

We must use our willpower to always be happy. We will then never lose a

moment in sorrow again. The wise make up their minds and treasure each

moment, living in joy and happiness. When sorrow or pain comes like a

wave into their lives, they use their willpower and let it pass. You too can

use your willpower and the power of your mind. When there are gloomy

days, remain strong and don’t let them overpower your life.

23

RVM Quote 12

Enthusiasm is a Power

that can give Dreams to the Dreamless,

Life to the Lifeless and

Hope to the Hopeless.

What can give dreams to the dreamless, life to the lifeless and hope to the

hopeless? It is a power called Enthusiasm. In fact, power is inherent in

enthusiasm. Don’t you believe me? Then let me tell you this. The word

enthusiasm comes from the Greek words ‘en’ meaning ‘in’ and ‘theos’

meaning ‘God’ and thus means ‘be inspired by God.’ Believe in God, let

him inspire you and fill your life with enthusiasm. In return, you will

receive tremendous power and energy that will enable you to dream and

hope. What does this mean? Live ‘in God’, trust ‘in God’, believe ‘in God’

and you will see the magic happening in your life. Try it! Try to live with

enthusiasm and find your life transformed.

24

RVM Quote 13

There are people who Dream

and there are people who Scream.

There are people who Cry

and there are people who Fly.

The good news is that this is a CHOICE!

A few men were locked behind prison bars. Some of them looked below

and saw mud. The others looked above and saw the stars. Everybody lives

through the same life. But each of us perceives it in a different way. Look

around. You will find some people making the best use of their life and

enjoying it. Hence, they are happy. The others are merely wasting their life

– cribbing and crying through it. They are not cherishing their life and are

unhappy. What is the difference? The difference is – CHOICE. Those who

make the best of life choose to do so and those who are wasting it, choose

it too. What are you going to choose?

25

RVM Quote 14

You can be who you want to be,

if you stop being what others want you to be.

Live your Life Philosophy.

What do you want to be? When you were growing up; you must have been

asked this question hundreds of times. Let me rephrase the question and

ask again. What do you REALLY want to be? Do you want to be what others

want you to be? Are you leading your life the way you want to or are you

getting carried away by doing what others want you to do? Most of the

people regret later in life the things that they didn’t do. Traditions,

customs and religion stop them from living their life and making their

dreams come true. Today, take a pledge to have no regrets in life, to live

your life exactly the way you want, to adopt a philosophy for your life and

start living it from today.

26

RVM Quote 15

It may be a Mountain or a Tree,

a River or a Bee…

Learn to enjoy the little things in Life.

Many of us are so busy craving for the big things in life that we forget to

enjoy the small things. Look around you, there are so many small things

that make life a fun-filled journey. It can be the breeze through the trees; it

can be receiving a smile from a loved one, wishing somebody in the

morning or a telephone call from somebody you care about. There are

many little things in life that can bring you happiness. Alas! You get so

caught up in chasing the big things that you forget the little things. And

thus, you forget to enjoy life. Don’t let that happen.

27

RVM Quote 16

Even one day lost in misery is a great loss,

for the day will never come back again.

You lose 24 hours of Happiness,

Joy & Bliss.

Live each day in Happiness.

Each day has 24 hours. That means each day you have 1440 minutes. That

in turn means that each day you have 1440 chances of feeling Joy, Bliss

and Happiness. But are you making the most of all the chances you have?

Are you happy for all those 1440 minutes? Are you at least trying? Don’t

get so caught up in the complexities of life that you forget to enjoy it. Or

else, moment by moment, you will lose it. And before you realize, the day

will be gone and it is never going to come back. Stop and make a

commitment to yourself that you will not waste anymore time in misery

because that moment will never come back. Resolve to make the best of

each minute. Start Now!

28

RVM Quote 17

Never worry about the Past,

it brings Tears.

Don’t think too much about the Future,

it brings Fears.

Live in the Present Moment with a Smile,

it brings Cheers!!

What happens when you regret the past? You think about all the wrongs

and you feel sad, right? What happens when you start thinking too much

about the future? You think about all the unforeseen dangers and fear

comes along. You feel unhappy. Even though thinking about both brings

only unhappiness, you keep shuffling between the two. Regretting the

past and fearing the future, you forget to live the present moment. Forget

them both. Live in the present moment. Wipe out the past and throw your

worries about the future out of the door. Live in the ‘NOW’, in this

moment, with joy and happiness.

29

RVM Quote 18

Life is made of Pleasures,

Life is made of Pain.

Don’t just enjoy the Rainbow,

also Learn to dance in the Rain.

I have observed that as soon as the monsoon season starts, instead of

talking about the rain and the joy it brings, people start discussing

potholes, puddles and traffic jams. And when the sun shines through the

drizzle and the rainbow appears, everybody is happy again. But

remember, life is about both – day and night, pleasure and pain, rainbow

and rain.

If you want to truly enjoy, you will have to accept life with all its ups and

downs. If you want to see a beautiful rainbow, you will have to enjoy the

rain jumping through puddles as well. If you don’t, you will be enjoying

only one part of your life and thus an incomplete one. So next time it rains,

forget the umbrella, step out and dance your heart out.

30

RVM Quote 19

With Time, you can create Money,

but with money, you cannot create Time.

So Time is more valuable than Money.

It is strange that you are losing the only treasure that you possess in life –

Time. You lose time in making money. You lose more and more of your

time in chasing more and more money. And what does it lead to? A lot of

money but no time. And what use is this huge pile of money when life

comes to an end?

Treasure Time; It’s invaluable! All the money in the world cannot get back

a moment that has just gone by. Realize that time is more valuable than

money, and live.

31

RVM Quote 20

There can be no Positive result

from a Negative attitude.

Think Positive. Live Positive.

What is a negative attitude? It is the accumulation of negative behavior,

negative responses and negative reactions. Obviously, there cannot be

any positive outcome out of a negative attitude. Negative attitude brings

along resentment towards life. In fact, negativity is like poison. It sucks

away all the Joy, Bliss and Positivity that one has. For someone with

negative attitude, there’s nothing positive left in life.

Be cautious of the fact – Sensible people think positively and live

positively. Their life is filled with love, hope and happiness because they

do not allow negativity to come close. Make it a habit to react positively

always. Let your emotions and feelings always be positive!

32

RVM Quote 21

Life is made up of Moments.

Moments create Days, days create Months,

months create Years and years create LIFE.

Lose the moment and you lose Life.

Ask a friend casually what he or she is doing. The answer that you will

often get is: “Just passing time” or “killing time”. Isn’t it strange? What

they unknowingly say in a casual tone has a deep meaning. In fact,

whenever I hear such an answer, I feel alarmed. We will live up to only a

certain age. With such limited time in our hands, how can there be time to

“pass” or “kill”?

Think about it. What happened yesterday? Last week? Last month? Or last

year? How soon did the time pass by? Realize that it is this moment that

will create your days, your weeks, your months, your years and your life. If

you want to get hold of your life,go ahead and grab the moment. As they

say in Latin _’carpe diem’ _ that literally means seize the day.

33

RVM Quote 22

Be thankful that you are on your feet,

for there are people who can’t

even walk down the street.

We often regret and crib about things we don’t have – “I don’t have a car”

or “I don’t have an LCD television”. We get so lost in our ordinary

complaints that we forget to think about those who are deprived of the

basic amenities like food, water or shelter; or even worse – of eyesight,

hands or feet. We never realize that there are so many beautiful gifts that

God has given us. We never realize that we are actually fortunate and

blessed.

So how about doing things a little different today? Think about all the

things you have; all those things in your life that you should be grateful for,

thankful for. It is the attitude of gratitude that will give you true joy.

34

RVM Quote 23

Don’t be amongst those who

are trying to build a better Tomorrow.

You can have a better tomorrow only if

your Today is better than your Yesterday.

Would you like to build a better tomorrow? The way to do that is very

simple. Try this method – make it a habit to make today better than

yesterday. Try to make the day in front of you just a little better than the

day that has just passed. Doing this is not difficult at all. Soon it will

become a habit. As it becomes a habit, you will be able to make your today

better than yesterday. Think about it.

What happens when tomorrow comes? When tomorrow becomes today

and you are trying to make it better than yesterday, you are surely building

a better tomorrow. It’s a very simple logic but people don’t understand it.

Try it. Try making your today better than yesterday and then you will find

yourself building a better tomorrow.

35

RVM Quote 24

Life is like a beautiful bird

that comes to your hand.

If you let it go, it will fly into the sky,

never to return.

Talk to an elderly person around you – somebody around 70 years of age.

While some of them will talk with mellowness and satisfaction of the life

they have lived, some will talk about the regrets and how they have

wasted their life. They had such great opportunities to be truly happy –

they could have lived healthier and invested their life to a cause. They had

the opportunity but they didn’t make the best use of it. Unfortunately,

they lost it.

We are all gifted with this life and before it escapes us, we must make the

best of it.

36

RVM Quote 25

First you Yearn to Earn.

Then you Learn that others

will Burn what you Earn.

Stop! Turn and Spend before your End.

Do you realize that whatever you earn today will one day stop being

yours? After this life is over, your money will be inherited by others and

they might use it whichever way they please. Once you depart, you will

not be able to control what happens to your wealth. Are you happy with

that thought? Are you planning to do something with your money? Or are

you just going to let it be used carelessly? If not, what are you waiting for?

Start planning to invest your hard-earned money in doing something

worthwhile. Make the best use of your wealth while you are in good

health. Spend it before your end.

37

RVM Quote 26

It is strange — people chase and hoard money,

and even cheat the world to become rich

only to finally leave it all behind.

Isn’t it strange that even though you know one day you will leave this

world, you continue with your mindless chasing of wealth and fame? All

the money that you will accumulate through the years will not belong to

you. Worse still, you cheat, lie and compromise to get this money. It is like

going to a hotel room and decorating it beautifully even though you have

to check-out the next morning. Why waste time decorating the hotel

room when it doesn’t belong to you?

Live your life knowing that it will soon be over. Do what is right and what

really matters.

38

RVM Quote 27

The Wind that Blows,

the Water that Flows,

the Sun that Glows, are

all proof that a Power exists.

Believe and Experience the Universal Power.

Today when you go out, stop for a while to feel the wind. Or if you see a

river, enjoy the grace with which the water flows. Or how about

appreciating the golden sky the sun paints when it rises or sets? Who has

created such beautiful experiences for us to relish? Well, we don’t know

who did it, but surely, some power did. All this didn’t happen by itself.

Start experiencing and believing in this Universal Power and your life will

be transformed. Believe in it, let it touch you and your life will never be the

same again.

39

RVM Quote 28

Think of Today, not Tomorrow.

It’s time to be Happy,

not live a Life of Sorrow.

Find out those things that make you

Glad & eliminate those that make you Sad.

Isn’t it unfortunate that many of us live our life without being happy?

Instead of enjoying today, we worry about tomorrow. Instead of being

happy, we allow unhappiness to take command of our life. Is this what we

want? No! We know this is not we want. But we get busy and our life gets

all the more entangled. In the end, we regret it all.

Let us realize that life can be lived only once and we must live the way we

want. Find out those things that make you Glad and eliminate those that

make you Sad, and do it Today, not Tomorrow. Do it Now!

40

RVM Quote 29

Of course, things will go wrong.

Move on!

Don’t let the little snags

affect the progress of your life.

Are you hurt from something? And has it been residing in your heart for

long? Don’t let your hurts rule your life. Don’t curse them, don’t nurse

them and don’t rehearse them. Instead, what you need to do is reverse

them.

Of course, there will be problems and things can go wrong but you must

move on. Just because you face problems, it doesn’t mean that you

should stop living your life. Life is all about facing problems, converting

problems into stepping stones and moving on.

41

RVM Quote 30

Don’t just GO through life,

GROW through it for

Life comes to you only once… never to return!

Climb the Ladder of Life, step by step.

Life is a journey that comes to you just once. Do not rush through it. Enjoy

this adventure step by step. You must not just go through life, you should

grow through it. The whole challenge in life is to evolve, transform and

transcend from one peak to another; the ultimate aim being to reach

higher and higher. This is what gives your life a purpose, this is what

creates Fulfillment.

42

RVM Quote 31

First, know where you want to go.

Then, go where you want to go.

You are your own pilot

and you can choose your Destination.

Imagine a pilot not knowing where he has to go. The aircraft will keep

hovering aimlessly in the sky with nowhere to land. Have you realized that

you are a pilot – a pilot of your own life? Your airplane will take you to the

destination of your choice. But do you know where you want to go?

Decide where you want your aircraft to land and fly it in that direction.

43

RVM Quote 32

Tremendous energy lies within each one of us.

Alas! We don’t discover and unleash it

and when we die, we lose it

because we didn’t use it.

You are like a huge power-generator capable of producing and unleashing

tremendous amount of energy. So when are you going to liberate it? If you

don’t use it, you lose it. Realize the energy within and find out the best way

to utilize it. If this energy gets dormant and gets wasted, you will lose it

when you die. Using your energy in the best possible way is the right way

to live. For then, you would have made the best of your life. Unleash the

gift of energy that life has given you and live as a winner forever.

44

RVM Quote 33

Look at yourself—are your eyes Twinkling?

Is your heart Dancing?

Are your lips Smiling?

If yes, then you are truly enjoying Life.

If somebody tells you that they are enjoying life, with a growling and

wrinkled face, don’t believe them. An unhappy face means that they are

not truly enjoying their life. You can make out true happiness from the

faces of the ones who are enjoying their life. Those who enjoy their life will

have their faces glowing with enthusiasm. You will receive positive vibes

from their body, heart, mind and soul. So before stepping out today, look

in the mirror – smile a little, dance a little and cherish the twinkle in your

eyes.

45

RVM Quote 34

Whenever a problem arrives,

do three things—

Face it, Fight it and Finish it.

What does an ostrich do when it senses danger? It flops flat on the ground

and tries covering its eyes and head. Why? Because the ostrich thinks that

if it cannot see the danger, the danger will also not be able to see it.

How do we humans react to the problems we face? You will be surprised

to know that we too react like ostriches. We try to run away from them or

escape them or avoid them completely thinking that the problems will go

away on their own. But actually, the problems chase us all through our

lives. That is the nature of problems – the more you get scared, the more

they will chase you. So, what should you do when a problem arrives?

Confront your problems; before they attack you, attack your problems;

face them, fight them and finish them.

46

RVM Quote 35

There are people who are dancing through Life

and others who are crying through Life.

The irony is that Life is the same —

what we do is purely our Choice.

Isn’t it true? We all live the very same life. When everybody is living the

same life, why is it that some people dance through life while others cry

through it? Are their lives so different from each other? If you analyze it,

you will find that the difference lies not in their lives but in their attitude. It

is the attitude which defines your life. If you have a positive attitude, you

can dance through a miserable life. If you have a negative attitude, you

can spoil even the most fabulous life. What you make of your life is entirely

up to you; entirely on how you react. React Positively. Choose to Live!

47

RVM Quote 36

We all program our gadgets

— computers, mobiles etc.

But we don’t Program our Mind

in such a way that we can

REJOICE and BE HAPPY.

We all program our gadgets. While we all effectively program our

computers and mobile phones, we forget that the most important gadget,

or rather gift, that we need to program is our mind. The mind is the most

powerful of all gadgets. We are so busy programming our electronic

gadgets, while we should be focusing on programming our mind. Realize,

the mind is programmable and it can lead you to the destiny of your

choice.

Take sometime today to think about how you can program your mind to

stay happy always.

48

RVM Quote 37

Enter Faith, exit Doubt.

Enter Hope, exit Worry.

Enter Courage, exit Fear.

Let the Positive enter your Life

so that the Negative exits.

Only one of these two emotions can exist in your life – Positive or

Negative. The good news is which one stays is solely your choice. It is in

your hands to choose the emotion which will rule your life. Remember, if

you let positive emotions take charge of your life, then there will be no

place for the negative ones to enter. But if you let the negative ones take

charge, then unfortunately, positivity will find no place to fit in. So take

proper care of your life, fill it with positive emotions and you will be the

master of your destiny.

49

RVM Quote 38

Life is not a Race,

but we still continue the Chase

and try to be an Ace.

It ‘s time to get out of this Maze

and Truly Live with Grace.

You know what life is all about, but still you keep running. You continue to

run after the unimportant things. When will you realize that the purpose

of life is not to run but to enjoy it and live gracefully? When we get stuck in

the maze of life, we just go around in circles till our fuel is over. Game

Over! Is that life? NO! Life is about living gracefully, peacefully and

blissfully. It’s about enjoying the journey; not dashing towards an

unknown destination.

50

RVM Quote 39

Some people live such boring lives;

it ‘s Black & White, so dead!

I choose to color my life with Fun,

some Blue, some Green, some Red.

When I look around, I find many people living boring lives; there is no

excitement, no fun. They are not rejoicing each day, let alone months and

years. They say, “I do go out for a holiday once a year”. But otherwise their

lives are mundane, ordinary, without spice and without anything to look

forward to. Don’t live your life that way. Add fun to your life. Add color to

your life – make a day red, another day blue and another green – so that in

the end your life is like a beautiful painting. Enjoy every moment and

every day of your life doing things you Love and things that make you truly

happy. Remind yourself that life is about making everyday a celebration

with colors that will make you dance and scream with joy.

51

RVM Quote 40

Look at people around you.

Some Inspire you, some Perspire you.

Be with those that build Energy in you.

You must have observed how food affects us. Nourishing food, like organic

food, makes us healthy and happy, not only from outside but also from

inside. Toxic food on the other hand, deprives us of many essential

nutrients and thus affects us in a completely opposite way – it is poisonous

and can kill us.

So is with people. There are those who will heighten your spirit, and you

will feel optimistic about life after meeting them. There are those, who

will always put you down and drain your energy.

Make a commitment to stay away from those who leave you with nothing

but pessimism. Accept and acknowledge only those who infuse positive

energy, who inspire, boost you up and fill your life with joy.

52

RVM Quote 41

A woman was counting her grams of gold

in Sorrow, while another who had nothing,

still counted her blessings in Joy.

Happiness is not what you HAVE,

but how you FEEL.

You may have nothing and still be happy or you may have everything and

still be unhappy. Happiness doesn’t depend on what you have but on how

you feel. Thus, you must learn to control your desires. You can do it by

controlling your thoughts. Don’t let your life pass in sorrow, thinking

about things beyond your capability. You are your own master. You are the

captain of your ship and you can choose to be happy. Learn to be content;

it’s a sure way of enjoying what you have, rather than aspiring for things

that you don’t have.

53

RVM Quote 42

We don’t have the choice

to hold a minute from passing,

but we do have the Choice

to make that minute magical.

You can’t stop a clock from ticking. You can’t stop time from passing. But

what you can do is, convert your moments and days into magical ones.

Nobody has control over time but you can control what you do with it.

You can spend it with your near and dear ones and share love. You can

spend it playing the sport of your choice, reading a book by your favorite

author or help an elderly cross the street. So don’t try to stop time from

passing, but definitely try to make the minutes full of fun and magic.

54

RVM Quote 43

Life is a Treasure Chest

and we all have the key to it.

Unfortunately, many of us don’t unlock the treasure,

but take the key to our grave.

Isn’t it true that life is a treasure chest and we all are searching for the

treasure of Joy, Happiness and Fulfillment? But, do all of us find this

treasure before our journey is over? We all have the key to this treasure.

We all can choose to be happy and make life meaningful. Often people

lose this treasure of life and take the key to their grave. They live life

unhappily and this treasure called Life is lost because they didn’t unlock

the treasure and live it. Live before you die. After all, of what use is the

treasure life offers to us, if we don’t discover the Joy and Fulfillment that

we can experience.

55

RVM Quote 44

Be Grateful you are not

like a rock that has no Choice.

The Sun Shines on it,

the Waves Splash at it.

You have a Choice to move

and to make your Dreams come true.

Have you ever been grateful for what you are? Have you introspected and

reflected on the many blessings you have received? Look at a rock. It

cannot move. It cannot do anything. It cannot choose to live its life the

way it wants – the way you and I can. We can do anything we feel like. We

can choose our actions, reactions, dreams and hence our life. How many

of us actually make the best use of this opportunity? Alas! Many of us live

like a rock. We end our life without choosing to live the way we want to,

although life bestows on us the opportunity to live like a human being;

making our own choices.

56

RVM Quote 45

The wise respond.

The foolish react.

The wise think & then act.

The foolish act and then regret.

Realize and understand the difference between reaction and response.

Both reaction and response require an action and are instigated by a

situation. Still the difference between them is profound. Reaction is

impulsive, an immediate behavioral response that comes from emotions

and not intellect. Response happens when we think, analyze a situation

and then reflect upon it. Therefore response comes from intellect.

Reaction is not a choice. But response is a choice. This is essentially what

differentiates the wise from the unwise.

The wise succeed because instead of reacting they respond. They don’t

regret because all their actions are well thought of. But the foolish ones

react impulsively and regret it throughout their life.

57

RVM Quote 46

Pain may create Misery,

Pain may give you Sorrow.

It may trouble you Today

but will be gone tomorrow.

Pain has its ways; it comes but never Stays.

Pain is a reality of life. A pain-free life is an illusion. It doesn’t exist. Pain will

surely come. But just like coming of pain is inevitable, so is the certainty of

its going away. It may trouble you for a moment, but not forever.

Therefore, when pain comes, learn to accept it and fight it, for pain has a

limited life span. Knowing that pain is a temporary guest gives us the

energy to sustain it for we know the pain will be gone soon. Don’t fear

pain. Rather, have the courage to face it knowing that like a passing cloud,

it will soon be gone.

58

RVM Quote 47

Days are like trains; they will just zoom by.

You can be zapped seeing them pass or

you can jump on to one of them

and enjoy the Journey.

How does your day pass? Do you take charge of your day? Or does your

day zoom by like a train? If you are driving your day and then it zooms by

like a train, it is fine. But, if your day zooms by without you having any

control over your hours and minutes, then your day has zapped you. You

didn’t do what you wanted to do because the day has left you bewildered.

Don’t let the day just pass by. Take charge of your day. Take charge of your

life and most importantly spend each day such that you truly enjoy it in

the journey of life.

59

RVM Quote 48

If you don’t get a kick out of the job

you are doing, you better kick it

and look for another one.

Love what you do or just don’t do it.

Is your job making you miserable? Are you simply putting up with it for the

sake of something? Despite this suffering, you wake up in the morning

and go back to the same job. I can’t understand why. What is it that

imprisons you? Why can’t you kick it and find something else? You may

not earn as much as what you are paid now, but at least you will have

Satisfaction, Contentment, Joy and Happiness. Yes, you must do what you

love and love what you do. If you can’t love what you do, then it is better

not to do it at all. Eventually, doing what you love will give you more

Success, Achievement, Satisfaction and Fulfillment.

60

RVM Quote 49

When the toughest of problems strike me,

I just remind myself that God is on my side.

Tell yourself this first thing each morning: “God is on My Side”. I believe

that there is a Creator, a Power – a Power called God. I believe that the

same Power had created the Universe and it controls the past and the

future. When tough problems attack me, I don’t worry. I know that no

matter how difficult or grave the problem is, I can face it because I have

God on my side. I choose to believe that God is with me. Therefore,

whenever I face a problem, I face it with Courage and Confidence. Yes,

problems come, but soon they go; my faith in God makes it so.

61

RVM Quote 50

Do it because you WANT to,

not just because you HAVE to.

When you do what you want,

you create an Unstoppable POWER.

To live powerfully, choose to do only what you want to and not what you

have to. When you do what you are passionate about, you infuse yourself

with enthusiasm and thus your body releases adrenalin which makes you

feel powerful and unstoppable. However, if you do something just

because you are forced to, you will do it listlessly and lifelessly. So stop

doing what the world asks you to do. Do only what you love to, what you

want to and you will see a power in all that you do.

62

RVM Quote 51

There will be things that will go bad

and make you sad. Don’t worry.

PEP yourself with Positive energy

and you will soon be glad.

Things that are beyond our control keep happening. Certain things make

us glad and certain others make us sad. While you have no power to

control such things, you do have the power to choose your reaction

towards them. You have the power to choose your emotions. So, don’t

worry about it. Instead, what you can do is choose PEP.

When you choose PEP –Positive Energy Power – you choose a positive

attitude and positive emotions like Faith, Hope, Love, Enthusiasm,

Forgiveness, Compassion, Confidence and Courage. You will then find

strength to cope with the hurdles life puts you through. Learn to be

positive and you will be in command of your life.

RVM Quote 52

It doesn’t cost much to be Happy

if the currency of your Heart

is the blowing of the breeze

and the swaying of the trees.

Why is it that some people have everything yet they are unhappy and

some have nothing yet are happy? It is because those who are happy,

choose to be happy and those who are unhappy, choose to be unhappy.

Unhappy people aren’t content and satisfied with what they have. They

want more and more. But those who are happy are so because they are

content with whatever they have. If you relate happiness with achieving

things that are beyond your reach, you will remain miserable. Try to be

happy with things you have right now and you will be happy. If you

consider the Breeze and Trees to be your Natural Wealth, you can be

instantly Happy.

64

RVM Quote 53

You spend your TIME

to make a DIME.

You lose your HEALTH

to make your WEALTH,

but at the end it is FUNNY

because you leave back all your MONEY.

The story of money is very funny because we have a limited time here on

earth. We lose this limited time in making wealth. We are so busy making

money that we have NO TIME to enjoy this wealth. Finally we have made

enough money. So we stop and make time to enjoy this money but by then

we will have no health to enjoy our wealth. Let us realize this now and

enjoy our wealth while we are still in good health.

65

RVM Quote 54

One who lives with Faith

says IT WILL HAPPEN,

while the one who lives without it

asks WILL IT HAPPEN?

Is there any difference between saying “it will happen” and questioning

“will it happen?” Of course, there is. The one who says “it will happen” has

Courage, Confidence, Faith and Enthusiasm. He says it with positive

energy. And the one who asks “will it happen?” is living a life that is filled

with Doubt, Hesitation and Skepticism. Negative energy is in command of

this person’s life because he doesn’t have the confidence in himself and in

the universe. Remember, Doubt or Faith – only one of these emotions can

be in charge of your life and that is your choice.

66

RVM Quote 55

Smile all the while because life is just a mile.

Enjoy the journey before it’s over.

Life is a journey, a short beautiful journey, if you want it to be that. It’s our

choice, we can smile or frown, dance or drown; the choice is ours. What

are we going to make our life? Well, it all depends on us, whether or not

we choose to be cheerful. When you smile all the while not only are you

creating happiness for yourself but also for others, after all, with life being

just a short mile; why not smile all the while. Make others happy as you

add Joy to your life too.

67

RVM Quote 56

Those who take Risks overcome their Fears

and Tears over the Years.

Why is it that some take risks and some don’t? The ones who don’t take

risks are paralyzed by the fear of failure. But those who take risks are the

ones who have learnt from their past experiences in life. Over the years,

they have learnt that they must learn from their tears and overcome their

fears. If they risk not, they will gain not. Such people develop Courage and

Confidence. They live with positive attitude because they have wiped

away their tears that were born from the past and overcame their fears

from imaginary dangers that never happened. Learn to take risks for this is

what life is about.

68

RVM Quote 57

We choose to do things that make us Cry.

We don’t know Why.

We blame the Sky. We do not Try.

Oh My! What a way to die.

Some people’s life story is so sad. Their lives come to an end without them

doing anything, achieving anything or celebrating anything. They live such

miserable lives. They don’t try to make the best of their lives. They whine

and cry at their situation. They don’t make amends. They don’t try to be

positive and they blame their miseries on everybody around them. Of

what use is this? What is the use of dying and losing a life that is full of

opportunities and possibilities? Try to make the best of your life before

your journey is over. Don’t just choose to cry and die. Open your wings and

fly.

69

RVM Quote 58

Let us not become so busy making a living

that we forget to enjoy our Life.

Every day of Life is meant to

be Lived and Enjoyed.

What is the purpose of Life? Is the purpose of Life to just make money? If

we spend our entire life just making money and forget to be happy with

the money we make, then what use is the money? If you look around, you

will find people who are so busy earning that they forget to live, forget to

pursue their passion and forget to make their dreams come true.

Therefore let us not be so busy making money that we forget to use this

money to make our life what we want it to be. Life is not just about making

money. Life is a journey that must be enjoyed before it is over.

70

RVM Quote 59

Choices, not Chances,

are responsible for the quality of our Life.

Spend time to Think, Reflect,

Introspect & then Choose.

The true winners in life have learnt one lesson and that is – it is not

chances but choices that determine the quality of our life. Many people

surrender their life to luck and fate; hence blame their life on bad luck.

They don’t realize that their life is bad not because of luck, but because of

the bad choices that they made. Realize it and start making the right

choices and your life will be back on the right track.

71

RVM Quote 60

Learn to be Positive always.

In pleasure or Pain, in Sun or Rain,

in Loss or Gain, always be POSITIVE!

Make ‘Being Positive’ a habit. That’s the biggest challenge in life. If you do

so you shall always be happy. Sure there will be Pain, Loss and Rain as

much as there will be Pleasure, Sun and Gain. Whatever be the

circumstance, we must learn to react positively.

Anybody can laugh in pleasure but it’s a challenge to laugh in pain. If you

do so you are on your way to the peak of Fulfillment.

72

RVM Quote 61

Faith gives Courage to the heart

and Energy to the mind to make

the Impossible Possible.

What is Faith? It is an acronym for ‘Full Assurance In The Heart.’ When you

live with faith, you will have Courage, Confidence and Belief. By infusing it

with courage, faith makes the heart strong. It also makes the mind think

positively, as it fills the mind with optimism. When you firmly believe that

something will happen, it often does, because then you attract ideas,

people and resources that will make it happen. Have Faith; for when you

have Faith, you can make your dreams come true. Those things that seem

impossible become possible with Faith.

73

RVM Quote 62

The Challenge in Life

is not to have the absence of Fear,

but to have the Courage to overcome it.

Fear is something that exists all around us. Many things that occur will

frighten you and make you fearsome. The challenge in life is not to

eliminate the fear, rather to overcome it. The only way to overcome fear is

to realize that F E A R is ‘False Expectation Appearing Real.’ You must

remind yourself that FEAR is not DANGER. It’s just a thought that may or

may not happen. It may appear REAL but it is not. If you think this way the

next time Fear appears before you, you will have the courage to overcome

it.

74

RVM Quote 63

Live before the Journey is over.

Live before it is too late.

LIVE because you deserve to.

The Journey of Life will soon be over. We deserve to live; we deserve to

enjoy this journey. But what if we forget to enjoy this journey and it comes

to an end? Many people don’t realize that the journey of life is temporary;

it’s short and we must live before the journey is over. I see people trying to

live their lives after they cross 70 or 80. They have no health; they may

have wealth but they can’t even walk, they can’t live, they can’t enjoy

because it is too late. We don’t deserve to die without enjoying life. We

must live before we die. We deserve to live and we deserve to enjoy. But

why do we forget this? Why are we so busy just making money that we

forget to enjoy this beautiful journey called Life?

75

RVM Quote 64

If we can be Glad…

But we choose to be Sad,

we are Mad!

Choose to be glad and never to be sad. If you feel that you have nothing to

feel glad about, then be proactive, take action. If you are not glad about

your job, go ahead and change it. Similarly, if something is making you sad,

wipe it off. If you feel that your hectic work schedule is making you sad,

take a break and start following a hobby. You don’t have to feel miserable.

Life offers us choices; we must learn to choose what makes us glad. We

must have the courage to refuse things that make us sad; if we don’t, then

we are mad. Choose to be glad always.

76

RVM Quote 65

We all come and go out of this

world in the same way.

The Destination is the same.

The difference is the Journey.

Some Enjoy it, some don’t.

We are born and one day we all will die. The start and end of everybody’s

life will be the same. The only thing different will be the middle part of life

– the part where we live our life. So if you want your life to be different, live

it differently. Dance through your life. Enjoy every moment of every day.

Every night when you go to bed, you should feel satisfied that you lived

the day to the fullest. This will happen if you realize that life is a journey

which must be lived and enjoyed. Just because others don’t enjoy life, you

don’t have to follow them or feel guilty that you do. Make the best of your

life before the journey is over.

77

RVM Quote 66

Far more than the shield

is the Pleasure I get on the field…

the Joy of the chase

is greater than the result of the race.

According to the well-known ‘progress principle’, we find more happiness

in making progress towards a goal than achieving it. We find more

happiness in going through the journey than reaching the destination. If

you introspect into your own past experiences, you will appreciate the

same fact.

One of the best ways to enjoy life is not to always win in whatever we do.

Sometimes, it is the journey that is more beautiful rather than the

destination. You must learn to enjoy the journey of life and the pleasures

of life. You cannot be sure of winning the race. But you can be sure that

you enjoy running towards the finish line.

78

RVM Quote 67

Every moment of Life is a Challenge to Choose.

Some Win, some Lose.

What is life? Life is a series of choices. Every now and then you will find

yourself standing at a crossroad wondering which choice to make. No

choice is easy. No choice assures you a win. But that is not the most

difficult part about it. The most challenging part is the task of choosing.

Don’t be afraid to make a choice. Don’t think too much whether this is the

right choice or the wrong. Choose. Just choose. It is way better than

standing at the crossroads and seeing life go past you.

79

RVM Quote 68

A Millionaire becomes richer

not when he earns his next Million

but when he spends it on a Noble Cause.

You have woken up and you will now drag yourself to work. What for?

Earning a few thousands? And after a couple of years you will drag yourself

for earning some millions. You feel that all this mindless hard work is

justified because you are getting richer. If you are getting richer, why is it that

you are not excited?

Here’s why. You are not excited because you’ve got the money but you don’t

know what to do with it. You are getting richer but you don’t know where to

spend it. Let me help you with that; go ahead and spend your money on a

noble cause. There are so many unfortunate people in the world whose life

you can transform by just a little fraction of your money. Do it and you will

have a sound sleep at night. You will be proud that somebody somewhere

had a hearty dinner thanks to you. You will actually feel rich.

80

RVM Quote 69

Why destroy this Morn,

by a Past that is dead & Gone

and a Future not yet Born!

You woke up this morning and the first thought that you had was, “Did my

boss like my presentation last evening?” And the next thing you thought

was, “Will he give me a raise now?” In this predicament of the past and the

future you spoil your entire morning. Relax. What happened yesterday

cannot be reversed. What will happen tomorrow cannot be predicted. Then

why worry about it? Live in the moment. Enjoy the morning. Enjoy your hot

cup of coffee. Don’t destroy the present with tears of the past and fears for

the future.

81

RVM Quote 70

Sky is not the limit if your heart is in it,

for when you do something with all your heart,

it just happens.

There is magic when you do something passionately; when you do it with all

your heart; when you give it your all. All you need is energy and enthusiasm

to make it happen. Try it once at least. You can achieve the impossible

provided you give it your best. Don’t hold anything back. When you are

doing something wholeheartedly, then it will happen for certain, because

you are giving it your best.

82

RVM Quote 71

Negative people don’t need to be defeated.

They defeat themselves

with their Negative Attitude.

Be POSITIVE always.

Negativity is poisonous. Fear, Anger, Worry, Jealousy, Greed, Indifference

– these negative emotions spread like poison. People who hold on to such

negativity cause harm to themselves. They weaken themselves. It doesn’t

take any effort to defeat negative persons because their negative energy

itself will defeat them. Learn from this and always be positive. Choose

Love over Hate, Faith over Doubt, Optimism over Pessimism, Compassion

over Indifference, Peace over Worry and you will be Happy always.

83

RVM Quote 72

Look at a stonecutter hitting at the rock.

Nothing happens at first, but after many strikes,

the rock eventually cracks. In Life, don’t Doubt.

Keep at it and it will happen.

Do you doubt the value and effectiveness of persistence? If you do, then

try this simple exercise. Go and look at the stonecutter hitting at a rock. He

keeps hitting at the rock but nothing happens. Suddenly, as if by magic,

the rock breaks. What made the rock break into two? Was it a final blow or

was it all that went before? We know it was not one single blow but the

persistence of the stonecutter. Learn from it and constantly remind

yourself to keep on and on. Let us not quit, let us keep on hitting at a rock,

the rock of our problems. Eventually, it has to break. There is no other way.

84

RVM Quote 73

It is ironic that we are particular about flushing

out all the dirt through the Drain,

but we continue to retain a lot of it in our Brain.

Sometimes we forget that more than the weeds in our garden, we must

remove the ones in our head. The weed I am talking about is the negativity

that surrounds many of us. There is so much negativity in our minds and

hearts that it destroys us. We pay attention to little things that do not

matter and forget the important things – our Thoughts and Attitude.

Understand that your thoughts would lead you to your destiny. Pay

attention to them. The next time you clean your drain, stop and check

whether you have cleared your brain.

85

RVM Quote 74

If you have not learnt anything,

but have learnt one thing that

the Goal of life is to be Happy,

you have learnt everything!

We all learn so many things; we study and research. But of what use is it if

we continue to remain unhappy? The goal of every individual in this world

is to be happy. You must realize that. While it is good to learn several

languages, mathematics and sciences, we must remember it is more

important to learn how to be happy. Without these we can still live with

joy but without happiness life is a failure. Learn the most important lesson

of life that the ultimate goal of life is Happiness.

86

RVM Quote 75

I invite and acknowledge only Positive thoughts

and people that create Happiness in my Life.

This is a great resolution. As soon as you put it into action, you will be on

the right path. When you meet a happy person today, share a joke with

him, laugh with him. And if you meet a negative person, do not go near

him; totally avoid him, unless you have the power to transform him. If you

let negativity enter your life, it comes with the worst of emotions –

sorrow, greed, jealousy, envy and revenge. Such emotions are contagious

and can only destroy. So for creating something better out of your life,

commit, accept and acknowledge only positive thoughts and people.

87

RVM Quote 76

What a paradox!

People hate to be miserable

but choose to be miserable.

Remember this the next time misery arrives.

It is said that misery is like an unknown guest that comes knocking on your

door. If you open the door to it, it comes in and doesn’t leave. Do you like it

when it stays? Do you like to be miserable? Do you like to live in sorrow?

No! So why do you let it occupy your life and mind? The next time you are

unhappy for whatever reason, promise yourself not to be unhappy, even if

the situation is tough. Remember, you can do it. You can reverse any

troublesome situation and be happy. But more importantly, beware of

misery. When it comes, be careful to make it stay out of your life.

88

RVM Quote 77

Anyone can exist.

Most fools do.

It takes guts to truly Live.

It is true! Look around you; you will see many people who are not living.

They just exist. They get up in the morning and go about their daily work

and before they know it the day is gone and then another day starts and

that too will be over again. Is that life? Life is not meant to just exist. Life is

meant to be lived and to make our dreams come true. For this, choose

Faith, Hope, Love, Enthusiasm, Confidence and Courage. These emotions

are the remedy to move from existence to truly living.

89

RVM Quote 78

The Richest person is not the Happiest person,

the Happiest person is the Richest person.

Ask yourself the question, “Is the richest person the happiest person or is

the happiest person the richest person?” You will realize that the richest

person is not the happiest person. He might have a lot of wealth,

buildings, cars, diamonds, stocks and what not! But is he happy? He is not

happy because he is greedy; he wants more and more. If somebody

touches his money, he will be unhappy; if something goes wrong, he will

be miserable. Therefore, it is not necessary that the richest person is the

happiest person. Look at the other statement; the happiest person is the

richest person. The happiest person doesn’t have riches but has the true

wealth of all. He has Happiness, Fulfillment, Joy and Bliss. He has the true

riches of life and this makes him truly wealthy.

90

RVM Quote 79

The Mind can think only one thought at a time.

If your mind is occupied

by a meaningless thought, you block

a meaningful thought from entering your mind.

Our mind functions in a unique way. Only one thought can reside in it at a

time. Recall an instance when you had a great thought and within a

second another thought came in and replaced the previous one. Then

what did you do? When you tried to recall the thought, you couldn’t get it

back. It was gone forever. Take charge of your mind because whatever you

think will shape your life. Let the right thought occupy your mind so that

you can live with meaning and purpose. When a meaningless thought

occupies your mind, consciously flush it out making space for a good

thought to take charge of your mind and your life.

91

RVM Quote 80

Life is all about TODAY.

There is no guarantee about Tomorrow.

So Live meaningfully!

Rejoice, Value life, and

Make a Difference Today!

Many people don’t give importance to Today. They are living for

tomorrow, while tomorrow might never come. They don’t have a plan for

today. Every day matters. Today is different from tomorrow. What is your

plan for today? Do you have an agenda? Do you have a philosophy to

guide you through? If you don’t have one yet, then here is one that can

make your life fulfilling- Rejoice, Value Life and Make a Difference. With

this philosophy, you choose to be glad rather than sad, you choose to

value rather than waste life and you choose to go beyond just making

money to making a difference before your journey of life is over.

92

RVM Quote 81

I am not perfect. Are you?

Let us accept the fact that nobody is perfect.

Let us learn to accept our imperfections

as well as those of others.

Before you blame anyone today, realize that nobody is perfect. Rather

than trying to find fault with others, why not concentrate on the goodness

that they possess. By doing so, you will inspire them to do better and help

them to build positive energy in their life to create more Joy and Bliss.

Keep reminding yourself that you are not perfect and you must never

expect others to be so. By acknowledging this truth of life we earn respect

from others with our humility and tolerance.

93

RVM Quote 82

When things don’t happen, people get Sick.

They see time Tick and they want it Quick.

They forget that Success happens brick by brick.

Everything in this Universe is built step by step. Nothing has shaped up

overnight. Rome was not built in a day and the Taj Mahal didn’t happen by

magic. They were all built brick by brick. Think about it.

Realize that there is no point in losing your peace of mind by becoming

impatient and wanting everything to happen instantly. Life will take its

own course and its own time. So be patient and enjoy the process. The

best things in life are received only with Positivity, Patience and

Perseverance. So don’t hurry, plan thoroughly and once you execute your

plans, wait patiently. Brick by brick, it will surely happen!

94

RVM Quote 83

Money is important, no doubt it is.

But is it everything?

That’s the question we miss

when we make our Choices in Life.

Money is important. In fact it is very important and there is no argument

to prove otherwise. But the question is, is money everything? Is that all

what we need? Yes, we should spend some time earning it but let’s not

offer our entire life in its reckless pursuit. We must earn money; use it to

infuse ourselves and others with happiness. Then earn some more and

share some more happiness. Once we have earned enough, we must stop

and do things that give us Joy, Bliss and Fulfillment.

95

RVM Quote 84

If you keep doing things that don’t matter to you,

you will not have time to do things that really do.

How does your day pass? Do you do what you love or do you get so

occupied with the routine of life that your day gets over before you know

it? Unfortunately, many people don’t chart out their lives as a pilot would

chart out his flight before take-off. A pilot knows his destination. He sets

his direction, steers the plane and lands at the place of his choice on time.

But imagine if he doesn’t know where he wants to go? Spend time not

only on things that you are supposed to do but on those you wish to. Then

your life will be full of joy.

96

RVM Quote 85

People ask,

“How can I enjoy life when I have problems?”

You may have problems,

but you can still enjoy life and be happy.

You say, “How can I enjoy life when I have problems?” Well, I ask back,

“Why should problems stop you from enjoying your life?” Everyone has

problems. I do. So do you. But this does not mean that you should not

enjoy life. You must learn to handle problems with a proper perspective.

The challenge is, despite all our problems, we must try to be happy and

smile. Face your problems, and as you do, also enjoy life. Then your life will

be full of Joy and Bliss.

97

RVM Quote 86

Not truly living

in the present moment & later regretting

is like closing your eyes when a peacock is dancing,

only to want to see it dance once it is gone.

Life won’t wait for you; you have got to enjoy life. You’ve got to rejoice,

celebrate and make the best of each moment. If the moment passes away,

there’s no point in saying that you should have, you could have and you

would have. The moment is already gone, never to return. To make your

life what you wish it to be, don’t live with regret. Live with action – plan and

then execute that plan. When you see something beautiful, stop

whatever you are doing and enjoy that moment. Many such moments

might have passed you. Don’t let the next one pass too; make the best of

it.

98

RVM Quote 87

In life, some laugh, some cry, some live, some die.

The choice is ours to crawl or to fly.

What makes our life different is what we choose to do with it. Some

choose to crawl through life and some open their wings and fly. It is not

that the ones who are flying are gifted with something more; they chose

to open their wings and fly. You too have that choice. You have the choice

to be with positive people or negative people. You have so much to

choose from. Are you making the best use of your right to choose or are

you letting things just happen to you? Think, choose and make your

dreams come true.

99

RVM Quote 88

In the pursuit of acquiring Treasures,

we lose the ONE treasure

that we truly possess – Life.

Let us not lose Life

in the wild pursuit of other things.

Life is a journey that will soon come to an end. Instead of enjoying life we

go after material possessions. In the end, we will have numerous material

possessions but our life would be over. Of what use is it to exchange the

one eternal treasure with temporary treasures? Of what use is it to

exchange our life with things that will ultimately not be ours? Let us not

exchange our life for prosperity that will soon not be ours. Let us learn to

live by making the best of this eternal treasure- LIFE.

100

RVM Quote 89

Life is like an Hourglass.

The grains of sand drop one by one

and then it ‘s all over.

Live before you die.

As each day passes life is getting consumed. We may have a long life ahead

of us but if we keep letting the moment escape us, just like the grains in an

hourglass, soon we will have no more days left and our life will be over.

Remember, life doesn’t come with a rewind button. Don’t let

opportunities escape you. Let the falling grains of sand in the hourglass

remind us that each moment is an opportunity to live and to make our

dreams come true.

101

RVM Quote 90

Very often, we let little things spoil

some of our most important treasures

—our Moment, our Day, our Life.

Every now and then, things can go wrong. But don’t let these little

derailments destroy your day. You will come across people ready to scar

you with their negative energies, to kill your happiness and peace. Take

charge of your life. Don’t let them affect you in any way. Isn’t it ironical that

even though we want to live a life filled with Joy and Bliss, Peace and

Happiness, we don’t take charge of our life? We permit the little things –

the termites of life to eat up our Joy and Happiness. And soon, we will be

living a miserable life, filled with negativity and disappointment. Realize

this and don’t let little things destroy your happiness.

102

RVM Quote 91

Everyday there will be an opportunity

to Smile or to Frown, to Dance or to Drown,

to be Glad or Sad. It ‘s a Choice!

Life offers us an opportunity to choose. Life doesn’t force itself upon us.

Therefore, whether we smile or frown, dance or drown or be glad or sad, it

is purely a choice and we get to make this choice every day. Unfortunately,

we don’t realize it is a choice. We forget it is a choice and we act as if life

happens by default. Life doesn’t happen by default. Life is a matter of

choice and every day what we choose is what we will receive and what we

will become. Remember, sometimes we can’t choose what happens but

we can choose our reaction to what happens and finally that’s what

matters.

103

RVM Quote 92

I am the Richest man on the Earth

because I am the Happiest man on the Earth.

After all, isn’t Happiness

the Greatest Wealth in Life?

Do you agree that the happiest man is the richest man? Or do you think it

is the richest man who is the happiest man? The truth is, the greatest

wealth of life is happiness; not the material riches that we pursue, not the

gold and the diamonds or the properties and cash. Of course, all this gives

us pleasure and momentary joy, but true Contentment and Fulfillment

come from things that money can’t buy. All this cannot bring us true

happiness. Thus, it’s not wrong to say, that you are the Richest in the world

if you are the Happiest for it is Happiness that is the true wealth of life.

104

RVM Quote 93

Those who have FAITH

believe that the Sun will Rise.

They don’t wake up in the morning

and look out to see if the sun has failed them.

What is the difference between those who live with faith and those who

live without it? Those who live without faith doubt everything. They wake

up in the morning and look out to see if the Sun has risen or not. But the

ones who live with faith- believe. They believe and achieve. They have

FAITH – Full Assurance In Their Heart – and that makes their life positive,

filled with Courage and Confidence. They live with Optimism and Hope,

eliminating Doubt and Fear from their life.

105

RVM Quote 94

Like a feather in the air, like a leaf in the sea,

I surrender to Thee, I surrender to Thee.

Have you seen a feather surrender itself? Have you seen a leaf surrender

itself to the waves in the sea? They completely surrender, they have no

command of themselves; they let go, let go, let go. That is how we must

learn to live, surrendering to the Universal Power called God. We must

completely surrender; completely accept the divine will; knowing that

this divine Power controls the whole universe. It is our Faith and Belief

that will give us Enthusiasm and power to live with inspiration. Try being

like a feather in the air, like a leaf in the sea and this surrender will take you

to fulfillment.

106

RVM Quote 95

If only I had spent my time

spending my money

rather than just making it,

I would have died a happier man.

These were the words of a dying man who was regretting that he had spent

his entire life just making money. He had so much of it but now he was

dying. The doctors had given up hope. Even though he was ready to spend

all his money they couldn’t give him back his life. Sadly, he didn’t have time

to enjoy the money he had made. What was the use of making all this

money, he thought. Was it all only to leave it behind? Unfortunately, most

of us who are rich make this mistake. We keep on making money, but in the

end when our health is bad, we can’t get back our health. Although we are

willing to spend our wealth to get back our health, we can’t. Rather is it not

sensible for us to spend our wealth when in good health so that when we

die the world will cry? Introspect! Promise yourself that you won’t be in the

same position repeating the same words when you die.

RVM Quote 96

The Achiever says

his Thoughts led him to Success

and the Criminal says

his Thoughts led him to Crime.

Everybody thinks;

but what we Think determines our Destiny.

Thoughts are very powerful. All those who have achieved success in life

admit that it all started with a thought. Million dollar empires are built up

from a simple idea. Unfortunately, even the criminals admit that it was

their thoughts that led them to commit crimes.

You become what you think. The challenge is to control thoughts through

Attitude and Emotions. Remember, as you think so shall you become. Your

thoughts create your Destiny; Thoughts lead to Feelings that lead to

Action that create Habits and finally our Destiny.

RVM Quote 97

The Destination of Life is Death.

Enjoy the Journey called Life

before it is over.

Life is a journey not a destination. Very often people are living life more as

a destination that they must arrive at. They are preparing all the time.

What do they have to do with their life? What do they have to make of

their life? What do they have to achieve in their life? And therefore the

entire journey of life is spent as if it was a destination and in preparation of

that destination. But, the destination of life is death. What is the point of

preparing all this and then dying? Why not rather enjoy this journey called

life before it is over? Isn’t it true that we all have to eventually die? We

know it, we have the wisdom but we don’t have the willpower to truly live

this journey. From today, let us make a commitment to make it a priority to

enjoy this journey called life.

RVM Quote 98

Problems are like Balloons.

We let them unnecessarily blow up.

What do we do to problems? Just like balloons, we blow them up; with

worry, anxiety and fear. They start becoming bigger and bigger till one day

they burst and leave our whole world upside down.

Problems are actually like a deflated balloon – they are small and

comparatively harmless. But our constant worrying inflates them up. The

more we stress, the more we inflate the balloon. Stop the balloon from

blowing up. Learn to handle problems like a deflated balloon – find the

right solution at the right time. Take charge of your problems instead of

letting your problems take charge of you.

RVM Quote 99

Instead of enjoying the Present Moment,

why Dream of things beyond your reach

and become miserable?

Are you happy today? If you are not, then what is it that is robbing you of

your happiness? Is it some dream, some aspiration that’s unreal or

something so farfetched that you cannot achieve? Unfortunately, in

seeking things that are beyond our reach, we lose the joy of the present

moment. It is sad, but true. Of what use is this? Instead of trying to get

more, why not make the best of what you already have? You must enjoy

life to the fullest. Why destroy the present moment dreaming of a

tomorrow which hasn’t arrived yet?

111

RVM Quote 100

Have a Blast; Life won’t last!

Make the Best of Today, before it is gone!

Know that life is temporary. Soon, it will be over. Are you having a blast in

life? Are you making the best of this moment, this hour and this day? And

not just today, every day? Life won’t last, so go and have a blast. Let this be

the topmost priority on your mind as you live each day. It’s sad that many

of us just blast life with problems and things that don’t matter. The day is

gone, and as we reflect, weeks, months and years have gone. Did we have

a blast? Don’t let another day go by. Stop. Have a Blast for Life won’t Last!
