It is not important to compete with others but with your own self. You must have a clear understanding of the progress you have made ever since you started your journey. You should grow as a person rather than trying to have more bank balance in your account.
I will prepare and some day my chance will come.
The time you spend waiting for the right opportunity should never be taken for as time to rest since this is the time, which prepares you the big day. Nothing could be worse than losing an opportunity that came your way simply because you did not bother to keep yourself updated.

Of course, you can tell a lie but to maintain that one lie you have to lie hundred times or even more. On the contrary, you do not really need a good memory to remember things when you share the truth with others.

I walk slowly, but I never walk backward.
It is important to choose the right track so that you reach your destination eventually. Those who go slowly in the right direction have more chances to make it than those who move very fast but end up going in a wrong direction.

I have always found that mercy bears richer fruits that strict justice.
Forgive all those who have hurt you since it takes a big heart to forgive then to take revenge. Most people tend to remember good things more often than recalling your bad experiences.
Always make it a rule to learn from your failures since you get many of them as compared to the success stories during the course of achieving your goals. Each failure turns you into a better person.
