People say words by a wise man act as bright light in darkness as they have the power to light up our lives. Keeping this in mind, we have brought you words of wisdom by Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama. We hope the interesting quotes below by him will make a positive difference in your life and increase happiness quotient.
"Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it."
Everybody wants to be successful but we always judge it only by what we gained. The statement by the Dalai Lama will make a difference in your life. When it comes to judging success, what we have gained is as important as to consider what we gave up to get it.
"If you have fear of some pain or suffering, you should examine whether there is anything you can do about it. If you can, there is no need to worry about it; if you cannot do anything, then there is also no need to worry."
It is simple yet has the power to turnaround our life for good. If we can follow this, we can eliminate worry and stress from our lives. Just imagine what a life it would be!
"When you talk, you are only repeating what you already know; but when you listen you may learn something new."
Most of us love to talk but it is rare that we listen with same enthusiasm too. If we imbibe the habit of listening to people, certainly there will be something to learn everyday.
"Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck."
All of us have been through tough days where we did not get something that we wanted in our life so badly. Well, may be you deserved much better. These words can be a real life saver and remind us of the fact that something good can come out of this too.
"Remember that the best relationship is one in which your love for each other exceeds your need for each other."
Relationships are important to all of us and sometimes we struggle to keep up with them. If we make this quote basis of all our relationships, they will become a source of happiness and not stress.
"Inner peace is the key: if you have inner peace, the external problems do not affect your deep sense of peace and tranquillity...without this inner peace, no matter how comfortable your life is materially, you may still be worried, disturbed, or unhappy because of circumstances."
The words summarise why people, despite having all the success and materialistic things in the world, are not happy. Indeed, it is for our own good if, along with achieving success, we put some energy into maintaining our inner peace
"When you lose, don't lose the lesson."
One of the biggest facts of life is that we can't always win. But some of our biggest victories come from the lessons we learnt from the times we lost. So, remember to learn your lessons when you lose.
"Choose to be optimistic, it feels better."
People often ask for strong reasons to be optimistic and positive. Well, we think you cannot get a better one than this.
"There is only one important point you must keep in your mind and let it be your guide. No matter what people call you, you are just who you are. Keep to this truth. You must ask yourself how is it you want to live your life. We live and we die, this is the truth that we can only face alone. No one can help us, not even the Buddha. So consider carefully, what prevents you from living the way you want to live your life?"
And we saved the best for the last. This quote by him tells us that we have an individuality and we should be ourselves. You don't have to be like others.
