Arise, Awake And know your strength

This inspirational quote is an eternal call of Swami Vivekanand to all the Indians to awaken their soul and propagate the message of Hindu Dharma to the world. These are some of the most fiery words of Swami Vivekanand and could not be more relevant to the current Indian youth. During these turbulent times, when the younger generation is losing its sense of patriotism towards the nation, Swami Vivekanand’s life and teachings inspire us to put our motherland above all else and learn to sacrifice for the nation whenever the need arises.

Swamiji emphasised that a country cannot reach its pinnacle without the power of its youth. He thus urged the youth to empower themselves by teaching them to be fearless and selflessly carry out their duties towards the nation. He served as an emblem of purity, spiritual prowess, love, and energy who inspired people to make a change in their lives. Empowering our self can be made complete by practicing positive thoughts, positive conversations and positive actions.

When we start to have negative thoughts, it’s hard to stop them. And it’s much easier said than done to shift your focus to positive thoughts. But it’s the only way, especially if you want to avoid going down a path that is painful and unnecessary.

  • Meditate or do yoga.
  • Smile.
  • Surround yourself with positive people.
  • Change the tone of your thoughts from negative to positive.
  • Don’t play the victim. You create your lifeβ€”take responsibility.
  • Help others.
  • Remember that no one is perfect and let yourself move forward.
  • List five things that you are grateful for right now.
  • Read positive quotes.

Watch your thoughts, they become words.
Watch your words, they become actions.
Watch your actions, they become habits.
Watch your habits, they become your character.
Watch your character, it becomes your destiny.

Happy positive thinking!
