Shiv Khera quotes: a quote masterclass by the self-help speaker.

“Success is not an accident. It is the result of your attitude and your attitude is a choice. Hence success is a matter of choice and not chance.”

“A crash course for success: play to win and not to lose. Learn from other people’s mistakes. Associate with people of high moral character. Give more than you get. Don’t look for something for nothing. Always think long-term. Evaluate your strengths and build on them. Always keep the larger picture in mind when making a decision. Never compromise your integrity.”

“Have a vision. It is the ability to see the invisible. If you can see the invisible, you can achieve the impossible.”

“There is no substitute to hard work.”

“So long as you have your eyes on the goal, you don’t see the obstacles.”

“The way to get started is to stop talking and get started.”

“Success does not mean an absence of problems, it is overcoming problems. Success is not measured by how high we go up in life, but how many times we bounce back when we fall down.”

“Most people want to win in life but very few are willing to pay the price to prepare to win.”

“How is life full of choices? When we eat too much, we make a choice to be overweight. When we drink too much, we make a choice to have a headache the next day. If we drink and drive, we choose to risk being killed or killing someone in an accident. When we ill-treat people, we choose to be ill-treated in return. When we don’t care about other people, we choose not to be cared for by them. When we light up a cigarette, we choose to invite cancer. Choices have consequences. The most important thing to understand is that we are all free to the point of making choices. but, after we make a choice, the choice controls the chooser. We have no more choices. What is success? Series of positive choices is called success and series of negative choices is called failure. We have an equal opportunity to be unequal. The choice is ours. Life can be compared to a pottery maker who shapes clay in any form he wants. Similarly, we can mould our lives into any shape we want.”

“If you think you can, you can. If you think you cannot, you cannot. And either way, you are right!”

“Remember the greatest motivator is belief. We have to inculcate in ourselves the belief that we are responsible for our actions and behavior. When people accept responsibility, everything improves: quality, productivity, relationships and teamwork.”

“Ability teaches us how we do, motivation determines why we do, and attitude decides how well we do.”

“Attitude is the foundation to success. The greater the success, the stronger the foundation.”

“If you want to build and maintain a positive attitude, get into the habit of living in the present and doing it now.”

“Positive attitude with positive actions supported by efforts increases the possibility of your success.”

“Progressive means that success is a journey, not a destination. It’s an ongoing process. We never arrive.”

“Ability will get you success; character will keep you successful.”

Motivation is like fire—unless you keep adding fuel to it, it dies. Your fuel is your belief in your inner values.”

“Our thoughts are causes. You sow a thought, you reap an action. You sow an action, you reap a habit. You sow a habit, you reap a character. You sow a character, you reap a destiny. It all starts with a thought.”

“Fear of failure is often worse than failure itself. Failure is not the worst thing that can happen to someone. People who don’t try have failed even before attempting.”

“Fear of success—a low self-image or fear of having to live up to their success causes some people to fear success. Or a lack of ambition. Our limited thinking prevents us from progress. There was a fisherman who, every time he caught a big fish, would throw it back into the river, keeping only the smaller ones. A man watching this unusual behavior asked the fisherman why he was doing this. The fisherman replied, ‘Because I have a small frying pan.’ Most people never make it big in life because they are carrying a small frying pan. That is limited thinking.”

“Opportunity is always under our feet. We don’t have to go anywhere. All we need to do is recognize it. An opportunity only knocks once. The next one may be better or worse, but never the same one. That is why it is so crucial to make the right decision at the right time. A right decision at the wrong time becomes a wrong decision.”

“What is passion? Passion is a strong emotion. Emotion is an energy, which propels us to commit to ourselves. If we need to achieve anything or get somewhere in life, we need to clearly have a focal point and go after it with all we’ve got. Whatever we do, we must put our hearts into it. If we put our hearts into it, it will open new opportunities. People say, ‘If I had a better job, I would put my heart into it.’ It is an illusion. That’s why people do a half day’s job and collect a full day’s salary. No wonder, they do not get anywhere in life. Trying to motivate people who lack passion is like resurrecting someone from the dead. It’s like putting in all your energy to inflate a balloon with a hole in it.”

“An abundance of commonsense is called wisdom.”

“Winners don’t do different things, they do things differently.”

“Winners see the gain; losers see the pain.”

“Success is not an accident. It is the result of your attitude and your attitude is a choice. Hence success is a matter of choice and not chance.”

“Excellence is not luck; it is the result of a lot of hard work and practice. Hard work and practice make a person better at whatever he is doing.”

“Super achievers don’t waste time in unproductive thoughts, esoteric thoughts or catastrophic thoughts. They think constructively and they know that their level of thinking determines their success.”

“Educated people recognize their limitations but focus on their strengths.”

“Education turns an empty mind into an open mind. It turns information into behavioral transformation.”

“Intelligence is quickness to learn. Ability is the skill to apply what is learned. Competence is the ability and the desire to apply what is learned. Desire is the attitude that makes a skillful person competent. Many skillful people are incompetent. Ability without the right attitude is wasted.”

“An uneducated thief may steal goods from the train but an educated one may steal the entire train. We need to compete for knowledge and wisdom, not for grades.”

“Under adverse conditions, some people break down, some break records.”

“If you want to build a positive attitude, then associate with people of high moral character and read books that lead you to positive thinking.”

“Worthiness is what gives meaning and fulfillment. Success without fulfillment is empty. That’s like good looks without goodness. In life we need substance over form, not form over substance.”

“Realization means it is an experience. Outside forces cannot make me feel successful. I have to feel it within myself. It is internal, not external.”

“Events and experiences in life determine our attitude. If we have a positive experience with a person, our attitude towards him is likely to be positive; and conversely, negative experiences tend to make us cautious. Experiences and events become reference points in our lives and we draw conclusions which serve as guidelines for the future.”

“Your positive action combined with positive thinking results in success.”

“People with positive attitudes have certain personality traits that are easy to recognize. They are caring, confident, patient and humble. They have high expectations of themselves and others. They expect positive outcomes.”

“Looking for the positive does not necessarily mean overlooking faults. Being a positive thinker does not mean one has to agree or accept everything. It only means that a person is solution-focused.”

“Negative people will always criticize.”

“The best teachers will not give you something to drink, they will make you thirsty. They will not give you answers but will put you on a path to seek answers.”

“One cannot be a good teacher unless he is a good student.”

“Learning is a lot like eating. It is not how much we eat that matters, but what really matters is how much we digest.”

“A person’s character is judged not only by the company they keep but also by the company they avoid.”

“People don’t care how much you know. They want to know how much you care.”

Money is a very important tool to make a big difference in people’s life. It is positive or negative depending on the values.”

“My first objective is to invest, and if I have anything to spare, then I spend.”

“This one phrase, ‘It is my life, I will do what I want,’ has done more damage than good. People choose to ignore the spirit and derive the meaning that is convenient to them. Such people have tied this phrase to selfishness and I’m sure that was not the intent. These people forget that we don’t live in isolation. What you do affects me and what I do affects you. We are connected. We have to realize that we are sharing this planet and we must learn to behave responsibly.”

“There are two kinds of people in this world: takers and givers. Takers eat well and givers sleep well. Givers have high self-esteem, a positive attitude, and they serve society. By serving society, I do not mean a run-of-the-mill pseudo leader-turned-politician who serves himself by pretending to serve others. As human beings, we all have the need to receive and take. But a healthy personality with high self-esteem is one that not only has its need to take but also to give.”

“You look at the life histories of most successful people or organizations who have succeeded, sustained success and maintained goodwill—they have all lived by this one principle: ‘I shall always give more than I get, to my family, organization and my society.'”

“Purpose: a lifetime goal is called a purpose. To identify your purpose, ask yourself, ‘If my age was a hundred today and I looked back at my life, what is it that I want to say is my accomplishment?’ The answer is your purpose.”

“This life is a one-way street.”
