  • "Don’t read the headlines for success. Be your own headline."

  • "Hire the smartest people you can find. Smart people make beautiful music together. Lots of smart people, working in unison, can have the power and beauty of a Beethoven symphony."

  • "Absolute conviction is an absolute prerequisite. Passion has a way of solving some of the toughest problems, but without it you’ve already lost."

  • "Close your eyes and think with your soul. Dream Big. Dream of Greatness. Dream of what defines happiness. Then figure the path that will lead you there, while knowing the difference you are going to make."

  • "Those who bring positive energy into the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves. Energy is magnetic and only multiplies back into your ultimate happiness."

  • "Don't be afraid to fail. Be afraid you never tried."

  • "Don't make money your goal. Instead, pursue the things you love doing, and then do them so well that people can't take their eyes off you."

  • "Never regret a single character in your journey. If they weren’t part of your destination, they were just preparation."

  • "Life is just a big empty canvas. You create your own art. And, then you decide how to turn into a masterpiece."

  • "It doesn't matter if the glass is half empty or half full. Be grateful you have a glass - your the only person that can decide what's in it."

  • "Fear is not a real, it's a choice. It's only a product of the thoughts you create."

  • "People will always tell you can't. You just smile and say "watch me"."

  • "Fame is vapor, popularity an accident, riches take wing, but only character endures."

  • "Ignore the world. Keep doing you. And, eventually it will have no option but to revere what you do best."

  • "Don’t let the fear of losing be greater than the excitement of winning."

  • "You can have the will, the desire, the discipline, the ambition, but when you marry it with passion. There isn't a single thing you can't do."

  • "If you genuinely want something, don't wait for it -- teach yourself to be impatient."

  • "You quit, you lose. You keep going, you may still lose. But, your ambition will never die."

Enjoy the Entrepreneurial Roller Coaster

Entrepreneurship is like a roller coaster. It has its ups and downs. It can be a crazy, manic ride with highs and lows. You hurtle along at a breakneck pace. It’s exciting. It’s exhilarating. It’s awesome. It’s mind-blowing. The ride can get scary, especially when there’s a sudden precipitous fall. But the good news is that after your stomach-churning plummet to the bottom you immediately rocket to the highest high. And it’s your choice to either scream or enjoy the…

Pain is temporary. Quitting lasts forever.

Consider the life of someone who refused to quit—in spite of setback after setback during a life of struggle: ■ When he was seven years old, his family had to give up their farm and move to a neighboring state. Like other children of the time he performed physical chores to carry his weight. ■ Just two years later, when he was nine, his mother passed away.…

Quick-witted and intelligent. And he delivers great one-liners. Of course, he’s not without his flaws but he thinks outside of the box and when it comes to the art of negotiation he’s talented and usually gets what he wants. He believes in the big W—winning. So…

Resilience is the Key to Success

Resilience. Commitment. Passion. These three words are characteristics. Characteristics of someone who isn’t willing to give up. Someone who isn’t going to accept anything but success. Someone who’s dictionary doesn’t include the words - failure or giving up. These are some of the most captivating character traits one can possess. It’s true, some may take longer than others to bounce back. But, regardless of who you are, you can do it too. No matter what you’ve endured, no matter who’s…

Let’s Make Our Kids Smile

I’m a child of India, but also a child of this world. I was born in Punjab on July 17, 1982 into a traditional Sikh family. Life was hard. Very hard. In fact, I wasn’t even born in a hospital. I came into this world in a small, rural room in a village that I shared by my parents, grandmother, and three older siblings.  It’s a far cry from the life I am blessed with today. Fortunately, I was given…
