Inspiring is an art, Inspiring with passion is high art!

Here is my favorite list of some great life principles to live by. These are the life principles I follow and I find them so very useful. Having principles in life help you when life doesn’t go the right way. Hope you will enjoy reading this.

Being Together: To go fast go alone, To go far go together!

Family: Blood makes you Related, Loyalty makes you Family.

Life: We do not live to eat and make money, we eat and make money to be able to live!

The more you know, the more you know you don’t know. -Aristotle

There will come a time when you believe everything is finished. The End. But its not, that will be the beginning.

If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between a dog and man.”- Mark Twain

LOVE:Learn to love without condition. Talk without bad intention. Give without any reason. And most of all, care for people without any expectation.

GIVING: When god blesses you financially, raise your standard of giving along with living.

SMILE: Every time you smile in difficult situations, you WIN.

POSITIVE THINKING: No matter what situation you are in, positive thinking can and will always come to your rescue if you allow it. The power of positivity is a gift to us from divine energy.

INSULT: A wise man is superior to any insults which can be put upon him. Silence (with a gentle simile) or very gentle words are the most exquisite revenge for insult.

MOVE ON: If you feel like you’ve failed or that you’ll never reach your goals, remind yourself that the Universe didn’t say no, it just said not yet. So move on and you will be there when your destiny wanted you to be there.

See your character. Give your thoughts no tongue. Give every man your ear, but few your voice.

Be Silent or let thy words worth more than silence.

People were created to be loved. Things were created to be used. World is in chaos because, things are being loved and people are being used, which is not evidently right.

Everything in life temporary. So if things are going good, enjoy it because it won’t last forever. And if things are going bad, don’t worry. It can’t last forever either.

Anything that doesn’t kill you makes you stronger! Stay cool, stay positive.

Never let success get to your head and never let failure get to your heart.

Learn to forgive people. Everyone makes mistakes. If you can’t forgive others don’t expect others to forgive you.

Relationships are more important than Ego. Family is forever!

No Character = No Life!

Patience with family and friends is love, patience with self is confidence, patience with others is respect and patience with GOD is faith.

Authority, power, wealth or things like mansion, cars and the properties don’t bring real happiness. They just create an environment conducive for happiness but cannot give happiness in themselves. True happiness comes from experiences. From family and friends. It also comes by the good things that we do (to one and all), rather than the things we own.

If you go in for argument, take care of your temper. Your logic, if you have any, will take care of itself.

Do not judge by appearances; a rich heart maybe under a poor coat.

Walk away from gossip and verbal defamation. Speak only the good you know of other people and encourage others to do the same.

Sometimes stress is the gap between expectation and reality. More the gap, more the stress. Expecting less keeps the stress less.

People who come first in class don’t always do the best in life. People who understand people, their field and themselves do.

It’s easy to attack and destroy an act of creation. It’s a lot more difficult to perform one. So don’t criticize.

Criticism creates motivation to improvise, pay close attention to those who criticize.

When people tell you who they are, believe them. Just as importantly, however, when people try to tell you who you are, don’t believe them. You are the only custodian of your own integrity, and the assumptions made by those that misunderstand who you are and what you stand for reveal a great deal about them and absolutely nothing about you.

Only few remember what life was before, and who’s always been there even in the most painful situations. Be a part of those few.

Always give your 100% because you never know who is watching your work.

Think positive and positive things will happen.

Bad things do happen to good people. So, never do something permanently foolish just because you are temporarily upset.

Worrying won’t change the outcome, but a positive attitude changes everything.

Silence is the best answer of all questions and smile is the best reaction in all situations.

It is always better to look ahead and prepare than to look back and regret.

Believe it can be done. When you believe something can be done, really believe, your mind will find the ways to do it. Believing a solution paves the way to solution.

Never give up. You only get one life. Go for it!

When angry; count to ten before you speak. If very angry, count to one hundred. ~ Thomas Jefferson

Launch your heart first and your horse will jump the fence. ~ santiz Noel Clarasó

Always respect honest and hard working people.

When there is a problem, be a part of the solution.

Give, but give until it hurts. ~ Mother Teresa

People deserve a second chance, but not a third.

When defeat comes, accept it as a signal that your plans are not sound.

Right actions in the future are the best apologies for bad actions in the past.

Everyone makes mistakes. If you can’t forgive others, don’t expect others to forgive you.


I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear. ~Martin Luther King, Jr.

Love is blind; hate is deaf. Hate less, live longer. ~Author Unknown ~Terri Guillemets

Lines I Believe

–> Love and appreciate your parents. We are often so busy growing up, we forget they are also growing old.

–> Kindness is not an act. It is a lifestyle.

–> The most beautiful thing is to see a person you love smiling. And even more beautiful is knowing you are the reason behind it.

–> There’s always some truth behind ‘just kidding,’ knowledge behind ‘I don’t know,’ emotion behind ‘I don’t care,’ and pain behind: ‘It’s okay.’ So pay close attention to how people feel.

–> The problems are solved, not by giving new information, but by arranging what we have known since long. ~ Ludwig Wittgenstein

–> Be happy. Be yourself. If others don’t like it, then let them be. Happiness is a choice. Life isn’t about pleasing everybody.

–> If you expect the world to be fair with you because you are fair, you’re fooling yourself. That’s like expecting the lion not to eat you because you didn’t eat him.

–> Any problem, big or small, within a family, always seems to start with bad communication. Someone isn’t listening. Emma Thompson

–> I love those who can smile in trouble.. ― Leonardo da Vinci

–> I have never known any distress that an hour’s reading did not relieve. ― Montesquieu

I’m always in the quest to find new life principles to live by. I shall update this post as soon as I find something that is useful and worth a share. If you find this post useful, please do us a favor by liking and sharing this post.

For Work:

Multitasking leads to as much as a 40% drop in productivity and increased stress. Shift between tasks take 50% longer to accomplish, and lets us make up to 50% more errors. We take on average, 15 minutes to return to serious mental tasks and IQs drop 10 points. With multitasking we experience difficulty in making decisions too. – Source.

Being Kind:

One kind word can make someone’s heart smile. Imagine what many kind words can do.
