10 golden life lessons to learn from Swami Vivekananda 



  • Be Brave

"Let us be brave. Know the Truth and practise the Truth. The goal may be distant, but awake, arise, and stop not till the goal is reached"

The acceptance that life consists of both the good and the bad.  If you wish to live your life to the fullest you need to face everything that comes your way and not run away from it.He wanted his children (followers) to be brave, “above all”

  • Believe in Yourself

"You cannot believe in God until you believe in yourself"

Swami Vivakanand wants every human being to realise the potential that exists within them. Keep walking on the path which you think is right for you. When you believe in yourself, you can overcome self-doubt and have the confidence to take action and get things done.

  • Follow your heart

"In a conflict between the heart and the brain, follow your heart"

  • The Importance of Self-introspection

“Talk to yourself once in a day, otherwise you may miss meeting an intelligent person in this world.”

Vivekananda believed that only you have the potential to correct yourself, so you need to keep yourself in check and keep understanding the inner desires of yours.This promotes self-fulfilment, inner peace and positive energy.

  • Law of equal and opposite reaction

"Ask nothing; want nothing in return. Give what you have to give; it will come back to you, but do not think of that now".

If all of humanity is empathetic towards one another and believes in working for the well-being of others then the world would also be kinder towards us.

  • Focus on just one task

"Never set your feet on two boats"

Do one thing at a Time, and while doing it put your whole soul into it to the exclusion of all else. Make one idea in your life - think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea.

  • Importance of Being Persistent

“Arise, awake, and stop not till the goal is reached.”

  • You Need to Struggle to Grow

"If we have true yearning for realisation, we must struggle, and through struggle growth will come"

  • Empathy not sympathy

“They alone live, who live for others, the rest are more dead than alive.”

Swami Vivekananda believed that the nature of the world is decided by humans who reside in it.So, if all of us believe in working for the well-being of others then the world would also be kinder towards us.

  • Be the Best Version of Yourself

“Learn Everything that is Good from Others, but bring it in, and in your own way absorb it; do not become others.”
