My Favorite Martin Luther King Jr Quote

Published

on

“You may be 38 years old, as I happen to be. And one day, some great opportunity stands before you and calls you to stand up for some great principle, some great issue, some great cause. And you refuse to do it because you are afraid….

You refuse to do it because you want to live longer…. You’re afraid that you will lose your job, or you are afraid that you will be criticized or that you will lose your popularity, or you’re afraid that somebody will stab you, or shoot at you or bomb your house; so you refuse to take the stand.

Well, you may go on and live until you are 90, but you’re just as dead at 38 as you would be at 90. And the cessation of breathing in your life is but the belated announcement of an earlier death of the spirit.” 

Martin Luther King Jr.

15 Powerful Insights From “The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari”

Published

on

The book, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari was written by Robin Sharma. The book tell of a man who gave up his expensive profession to find the purposes for his life. It is a book of fables and personal development.

Below are some insights from the book.

• When I was growing up, my father, translating a Sanskrit saying, something with me that I will never forget. He said, “Son, when you were born, you cried while the world rejoiced. Live your life in such a way that when you die the world cries while you rejoice.”​

• We live in an age when we have forgotten what life is all about. We can easily put a person on the moon, yet we have trouble walking across the street to meet a new neighbor.

• We have technology to help us stay connected, yet in many ways we have never been less connected in the history of humankind. We know more than ever, yet we also know less, about what it means to be truly great—as a human being.

• Purpose is the most powerful motivator in the world. The secret of passion truly is purpose.

• Success cannot be pursued; success ensues. It flows as the unintended byproduct of efforts concentrated in the direction of a worthy cause.

• The word duty is often viewed negatively in our culture. Many people don’t like the idea of it, feeling that duty would restrict them and hinder them from living in the moment. To me, the word duty represents freedom and happiness. And leadership and authentic success is about doing what’s right rather than what’s easy.

• Once you connect with some kind of higher purpose in your life, there will be a corresponding release of passion and energy. The secret of generating extraordinary levels of passion in your life is to discover your larger purpose.

• Once you find your calling, you get excited. And you begin to stand for something higher than yourself.

• Look at people who discovered a cause that they gave their lives over to, people such as Benjamin Franklin, Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., Mother Teresa, Albert Einstein and Nelson Mandela. They connected with some kind of a crusade that they decided their lives would represent. This engaged their hearts. This made them emotionally charged up about what they were doing. And once you can develop some emotional engagement around a pursuit, rather than simply an intellectual engagement, the excitement flows and the energy explodes. Connect to a compelling cause with your heart, not your head. And then fasten your seatbelt because your life will soar.

• The mind can be a limiter. The emotions are the liberator. You can find your cause—your crusade—exactly where you are.

• No one has to leave a job to find something to engage their heart and excite them. Often all that is required is that a person see things differently. And to take that first step today.

• A cause to stand for unleashes energy, no matter if it’s one about creating incredible experiences for the men and women who give you business or one that involves saving the world. All remarkable creations begin with energy—and commitment. Resolve to be extraordinary in all that you do.

• Find your cause, and then do your work with pride and love—love is such an incredible force for good. It’s the most powerful thing in the world.

• What really separates people who are habitually upbeat and optimistic from those who are consistently miserable is how the circumstances of life are interpreted and processed. The boundaries of your life are merely creation of the self.

Fear is nothing more than a mental monster you have created, a negative stream of consciousness. When you conquer your fear, you conquer your life.


If you will only read one book this year, let it be The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari.
