Do you need advice on relationships? On God? On success? Or to reach goals?

About 150 years ago, a boy was born at 3, Gourmohan Mukherjee Street in Kolkata on 12 January. His family called him Naren.

Thirty years later, this man did something incredible. Something that not even the greatest leaders of history could achieve.

He won over the hearts of men – of different religions – from foreign lands – by saying just one line.

Sisters and brothers of America ….

No leader yet has been able to get such a genuine and heartfelt a standing ovation from all religious people. Not even today!

No wonder Swami Vivekananda stands tall and proud among men. A visionary and a patriot – with an unconditional love of the whole world and all religions.

Here are the gems of sayings from Swami Vivekananda that will help you win over life –

#1 Relationships are more important than life, but it is important for those relationships to have life in them

#2 Talk to yourself at least once in a day, otherwise you may miss a meeting with an excellent person in this world.

#3 You cannot believe in God until you believe in yourself.

#4 Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life – think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success.

#5 Truth can be stated in a thousand different ways, yet each one can be true.

#6 Dare to be free, dare to go as far as your thought leads, and dare to carry that out in your life.

#7 When an idea exclusively occupies the mind, it is transformed into an actual physical or mental state.

#8 We are what our thoughts have made us; so take care about what you think. Words are secondary. Thoughts live; they travel far.

#9 Condemn none: if you can stretch out a helping hand, do so. If you cannot, fold your hands, bless your brothers, and let them go their own way.

#10 Like me or Hate me, both are in my favor, If you like me I am in your Heart, If you hate me I am in your mind.
