Get encouraged. Get going.



There are but little times when we read a sentence that can uplift our spirits. Those times are rare and few. People, have got so busy in their lives that they hardly have time to cheer a friend up. There’s family, kids, girlfriends, boss and so much to look after, not to mention the stress created due to managing multiple social media accounts. This rising tornado of stress drains all the happiness from our lives and there comes a time, a time of rejection and dejection and betrayal and blunder when we lose the purpose of our lives. That’s the time when encouraging words from great men who have failed in their lives yet have come out of their fear and redefined success helps us. When the clock is ticking rapidly and the hour is none, we need to come across such soothing words once in a day. The following words will mend your broken heart, re-activate your lost self and energize you till your spirits are high.
