Make A Difference
“There’s a necessity to make a difference. It is instilled spiritual responsibility that you have to make every group you come into contact with better. It’s like if you are not making someone else’s life better, then you’re wasting your time. Your life will become better by making other lives better.”
Represent an Idea – Create Magic
“I want to represent an idea. I want to represent possibilities. I want to represent magic; that you’re living in a universe of 2+2=4. 2+2 equals 4 only if you accept that 2+2=4. I want to represent the idea that you really can make whatever you want, I just believe that I can create whatever I want to create. The first step, before anybody else in the world believes it is you have to believe it. There’s no reason to have a plan B because it distracts from plan A. I think that there’s a certain delusional quality that all successful people have to have. You have to believe that something different than what has happened for the past 50 million years of history, you have to believe that something different can happen.”
Never Be Realistic
Confucius said “he who says he can and he who says he can’t are both usually right.”
Being realistic is the most commonly traveled road to mediocrity. Why would you be realistic? What’s the point of being realistic? I’m going to do it, it’s done, its already done, as soon as I decide it’s done it’s already done. Now we just going to wait for you all to see.
It’s unrealistic to walk into a room and flick a switch and lights come on, fortunately Edison didn’t think so. It’s unrealistic to think you’re going to bend a piece of metal and fly people over an ocean in that metal. That’s unrealistic. But fortunately the Wright brothers and others didn’t believe that. It just seems like such a ridiculous idea to me to embrace the idea that it’s not going to happen or that’s not real for that to happen. As soon as you say it now you just made that real.
Our thoughts, our feelings, our dreams, our ideas are physical in the universe. That if we dream something, if we picture something and commit ourselves to it then that is a physical thrust towards realization that we can put into the universe. That the universe is not a thing that’s going to push us around. That world and people and situations are something that are going to push us around. That we are going to bend the universe and command, demand that the universe become what we want it to be.
I have studied the patterns of the universe. There’s a redemptive power that making a choice has, rather than feeling like you’re at effect to all the things that are happening.”
Trust The Universe
“Make a choice. You just decide what it’s going to be, who you’re going to be, you just decide. And then from that point the universe is going to get out your way. It’s water, it wants to move and go around stuff. There’s a flow of the universe that I’ve grown to know just how to go with it.”
Focus and Be Fearless
“I’ve realised that to have the level of success that I want to have it’s difficult to spread it out and do multiple things, it takes such a desperate, obsessive focus, you really focus with all of your fibre and all of your heart and all of your creativity.
I’m motivated by fear … Fear of fear. I hate being scared to do something. I think what developed in my early days was the attitude that I started attacking things that I was scared of.
There are so many people who have lived and died before you. You will never have a new problem. Somebody wrote the answer down in a book somewhere. Just the idea that everything you need to know someone has written it down. You can’t be scared to die for the truth. The truth is the only thing that’s ever going to be constant and you can’t fear what might happen to you if you were to tell the truth. Because what happens to you if you don’t tell the truth is worse than telling the truth will ever be.”
“Don’t you ever let somebody tell you that you can’t do something.”

Batil Dooyi Pasand Hai, Haq La-Shareek Hai
Shirkat Mayana-e-Haq-o-Batil Na Kar Qabool
Untruth conceals in various masks but Truth and God are both unique: There canʹt be pool ʹtwixt good and bad. This fact is known from times antique.http://iqbalurdu.blogspot.ca/2011/04/zarb-e-kaleem-078-sultan-tipu-ki.html
Imam Ali (AS): "Whoever has identified his self in reality has recognized his Creator."
When someone is mean, don’t listen. When someone is rude, walk away. When someone tries to put you down, stay firm. Don’t let someone else’s bad behavior destroy your inner peace.
