  1. Don’t look back. Just do it. Don’t Regret. This one is underrated quotes by Ratan Tata but I love the way he defines how he is grateful for all his efforts- “There are many things that, if I have to relive, maybe I will do it another way. But I would not like to look back and think about what I have not been able to.”.

  2. I like this very quotation of Swami Vivekananda which describe the strategy of achieving something in a beautiful way. Here it is: \”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 royal way to success.\”

    I appreciate that you took a simple, how to article by explaining the process step by step and how to build momentum.

    In reality, its all baby steps as you go from failing to success and learning from more failures. You have to learn how to crawl before you can stand up, fall down and then stand back up in order to learn to walk.
