-Give yourself chances and space to grow after your mistakes. Don’t try to be too harsh on yourself.
-Be confident in what message you influence on others. Accept the things which you can’t have control over.
-Apart from getting influenced and passing on the influence, nothing else should be of your concern.

-Rather than giving time the amount of respect it entitles to, we humans take the mighty time for granted and start doing bizarre things.
-Consciousness and time are the most priceless things we will ever have.
-If you are practicing leadership and communicative skills consistently, make sure you show it in your practical actions and not in theory.

-Once you master the skills of leadership and once you master the way to be a stoic, people will automatically notify you and the power you have.
-Prioritize the things which are important to you and don’t worry about the things which are not essential. And stop worrying about the unessential things.
-If someone constantly criticizes you, it means either they genuinely want to see you in your greatest form, or else they are jealous of the success you have in life.
-Be neutral with the fact that just as you have opinions and priorities of everything, so do the others. It is the same between you two.
