The happiness you get when your idea turns into a buzzword which the world pronounces every minute helps you continue to fly high in the sky of joy and contentment. The thought that you nurtured further nurtures you only when you cast your potent strategies to prove the world, your abilities.

2. “Eventually all the pieces will fall into place. Until then, live the moment and remember that, everything happens for a reason.”

Our world is advancing as so are our brains. We are aware of numerous life changing facts and we also know the impact that can cover the world, when lessons and guidelines are implemented. Many times, despite, knowing what takes us forward, we tend to not follow the right habits and show the right attitude. It is very important to understand that you never know which move of yours takes you higher. Your job is only to give your 100% and await the awesomeness to happen.   

Incidents may be small, but the effect it has on our minds, generate powers to transform anything to anything.

Grabbing all the opportunities which aligned his life, he learnt the recipe for a hemostatic ointment from a local healer. His every action ensured his diverging growth. His envisioned for democratizing the access to beauty products.

3. “Your actions and deeds would certainly be replicated by the whole world, if the sense of greatness manifests in them.”

A leader is someone who is looked upto, respected and also someone who is learnt from. We usually tend to copy what the other person does because we know that he/she succeeded. There is always a small ray of hope inside us which does nothing but intimates that the same action plan, methodology or steps may designate success into our lives as well. Philanthropy must start right within us. What is wrong in importing what an achiever did and implementing the same? You in fact gain from it right?

The Sabanci Group which was developed by him still holds a strong reputation and image, and has continued to function and take up numerous ventures just like how it used to.

4. “Beyond all that what is called misery, must exist the divine hope.”

Struggles, challenges, worries, violence, war, sorrow and misery! They undoubtedly hinder our enthusiasm, peace of mind and interest to do what we love to. But remember, a pleasant feel and a gracious smile are more than sufficient to chase all the pessimism and negativities. Everyone have problems but the way they are handled is something that contributes to the cultivation and expansion of positivism. Feel the inner and real you! The deific, clear and innocence filled aspirations drive you out of all the worldly existing miseries and lets the optimism shelter you.

Gabriela Mistral always had poverty as her shadow. It was a must for her to go through fear, inferiorities and moneyless times. Worries will not fetch you any gain, but a lot of pain. So don’t you think the attitude of focusing on what’s next bridges you to success rather than grieving and crying? Never hurt yourself. Don’t even feel that you’ve hurt. You have no right to make yourself cry.

She published some early poems, such as Ensoñaciones, Carta Íntima and more.

5. “Train your mind to see good in every situation.”

The world in which we live, has both positivity and negativity in it. We often feel that negatives attract us faster and deviate our way and mindset. A half filled glass can also be interpreted as a half empty one. But almost every time we refer to this, we do it by saying half filled. This is positivity isn’t it? Now pause for a minute and think about it. It is all about how you look at and take things. If your mental abilities are not strong enough to enjoy the fell offered by optimism, then naturally we get inclined to hindrances. Better add a pill of energy and qualify yourself to abide by and walk into the world of positivity.
