2. “Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it’s always your choice.”

I liked this Quote the most. The reason behind it is, there will be more than 100 people to give you advice and from them some may be trying to pull you down as well. But at the end of the day, its your decision because its your life. You are responsible for what ever happen in your life, good or bad… :) so be self motivated and you will win the world…

Dear Manisha,
Your choice is cool and your explanation has added meaning to ur decision.

Thank you for your valuable comments.


The quote from Wayne Dyer I like the best too. A long time ago I motivated myself to be a painter when I discovered that what I have is called synesthesia. It means that I see colors when I hear words and numbers. Finding out that this is a gift and not a disorder motivated me to start to paint what I see.


“Expect problems and eat them for breakfast.”
what it means?


It means that you are courageous enough to face all problems in life and you can solve them..
