Arise and Awake and stop not till the goal is reached…!!
These mighty sword like words of Swami Vivekananda are inspiring gems of eternal wisdom. The ambition of every youth should be to cherish high ideals, to reach great heights in life, to come out with flying colours in all one’s endeavours, to attain the desired goal even after facing mighty obstacles.
He has within him that infinite strength to reach the aimed goal. Physical growth alone is not a sign of real youth. A youth who is chicken- hearted, with a pale and long face, sickly appearance, undisciplined senses, restless mind, dull intellect and an incarnation of laziness can never be a real youth. Swami Vivekananda wanted you to be like lions, "My faith is in the younger generation, the modern generation, out of them will come my workers. They will work out the whole problem, like lions."
His shining qualities of razor-sharp intellect, affection- soaked heart, boundless courage, astounding inventive genius, unreckoned working capacity and irrepressible enthusiasm, made him a whole world renowned figure. His life and messages are a perennial source of inspiration to our modern youth. Let us recall Swami Vivekananda’s words, "All power is within you, you can do anything and everything. Believe in that, do not believe that you are weak. Stand up and express the divinity within you.”
He professed 10 qualities to be practiced and cultivated by our youth to awaken the hidden confidence within us.
- Conviction about one's ability
- Clarity of goal
- Hard work,
- Self Respect
- Perfect communication
- Discrimination between right and wrong
- Boundless love to mankind.
Let us all try to cultivate these qualities and discover the inherent strength within ourselves, thereby achieving real success in life.
