Swami Vivekananda about Self Confidence:
You have in you all and a thousand times more than is in all the books. So never lose faith in yourself; you can do anything in this universe. Never weaken; all power is yours.
We want Shraddha, and we want faith in our own selves. Strength is life; weakness is death. ‘We are the Atman, deathless and free; pure, pure by nature. Can we ever commit any sin? Impossible!’—such faith is needed. Such a faith makes men of us, makes gods of us. It is by losing this idea of Shraddha that the country has gone to ruin.
Three things are necessary to make every man great, every nation great:
- Conviction of the powers of goodness.
- Absence of jealousy and suspicion.
- Helping all who are trying to be and do good.
You are the makers of your own fortunes. You make yourselves suffer, you make good and evil, and you who put your hands before your eyes and say it is dark. Take your hands away and see the light.
Even the least work done for others awakens the power within, gradually instills into the heart the strength of a lion.
It is a weakness to think someone is dependent on you and that you can do good to him. This belief is the mother of all our attachment, and through this attachment comes all our pain. Therefore developing the attitude of non-attachment is a great lesson to learn in life, and when we have learned it fully, we shall never be unhappy. By non-attachment, you overcome and deny the power of anything to act upon you!
Be obedient and eternally faithful to the cause of truth, humanity, and your country, and you will move the world.
Be not afraid of anything. You will do marvelous work. The moment you fear, you are nobody. It is fear that is the great cause of misery in the world. It is fear that is the cause of all our woes, and it is fearlessness that brings heaven even in a moment.
The more opposition there is, the better. Does a river acquire velocity unless there is resistance? The newer and better a thing is, the more opposition it will meet with at the outset. It is the opposition that foretells success.
A handful of men can throw the world off its hinges, provided they are united in thought, word, and deed – never forget this conviction.
The coward and the fool who says, “This is fate.” – so says the Sanskrit proverb. But it is the strongman who stands up and says, “I will make my fate.” It is people who are getting old who talk of fate.
If what we are now has been the result of our own past actions, it certainly follows that whatever we wish to be in the future can be produced by our present actions; So we have to know how to act. By knowing how to work, one can obtain the greatest results. Even the lowest forms of work are not to be despised.
Feel that you are great, and you will become great. We all have the same glorious soul. Let us believe in it.
Never say, ‘No’, never say ‘I cannot,’ for you are infinite, even time and space are nothing compared with your nature. You can do anything and everything; you are almighty.
Whatever you think, that you will be. If you think yourselves weak, weak you will be; if you think yourselves strong, strong you will be.
