Robin Sharma Motivational Quotes

Life's too short to play small with your talents. You were born into the opportunity as well as the responsibility to become legendary. You've been built to achieve masterwork-level projects, designed to realize unusually important pursuits and constructed to be a force for good on this tiny planet. - Robin Sharma

No matter where you are on the pathway of your life, please don't let the pain of an imperfect past hinder the glory of your fabulous future. - Robin Sharma

Hard is good. Real greatness and the realization of your inherent genius is meant to be a difficult sport. Only those devoted enough to go to the fiery edges of their highest limits will expand them. - Robin Sharma

Becoming legendary is never easy. But I'd prefer that journey to the heartbreak of being stuck in ordinary that so many potentially heroic people deal with constantly. - Robin Sharma

Tragedy is nature's great purifier. It burns away the fakeness, fear and arrogance that is of the ego. Returns us to our brilliance and genius, if you have the courage to go into that which wounds you. - Robin Sharma

When you feel like surrendering, continue. Triumph loves the relentless. - Robin Sharma

The grade of work you offer to the world reflects the strength of the respect you have for yourself. Those with unfathomable personal esteem wouldn't dare send out anything average. It would diminish them too much. - Robin Sharma

There's a ton of competition at ordinary, but there's almost none at extraordinary. There's never been such a glamorous opportunity to become peerless because so few people are dedicated to world-class in this age of such scattered focus, eroded values and deteriorated faith in ourselves along with the inherent primal power we hold. - Robin Sharma

All shadows of insecurity dissolve in the warm glow of persistency. - Robin Sharma

Dedication and discipline beats brilliance and giftedness every day of the week. - Robin Sharma

A problem will persist until you get the education it showed up to bring. - Robin Sharma

What makes the best the best is not their genetics but their habits. And not the extent of their gifts, but the strength of their grit. - Robin Sharma

Small, daily, seemingly insignificant improvements, when done consistently over time, yield staggering results. - Robin Sharma

A wishbone without a backbone doesn't really get you very far. - Robin Sharma

Everyone dreams of being a legend until it comes time to do the work that legends do. - Robin Sharma

Should someone do you wrong, let karma do the dirty work. And let a world-class life be your revenge. - Robin Sharma

There are no mistakes in life, only lessons. There is no such thing as a negative experience, only opportunities to grow, learn and advance along the road of self-mastery. From struggle comes strength. - Robin Sharma

Shake up your life a bit. Get rid of the cobwebs. Take the road less travelled. Most people live within the confines of their comfort zone. - Robin Sharma

Pressure is not always a bad thing. Pressure can inspire you to achieve great ends. People generally achieve magnificent things when their backs are up against the wall and they are forced to tap into the wellspring of human potential that lies within them. - Robin Sharma

Robin Sharma Leadership Quotes

We need leaders, pure leaders and not narcissists obsessed with their own self-interests, as never before. - Robin Sharma

To lead is to inspire others by the way that you live. To lead is to walk through the fires of your hardest times to step up into forgiveness. To lead is to remove any form of mediocrity from infiltrating the quarters of your life in a dazzling celebration of the majesty that is your birthright. To lead is to turn your terrors into triumphs and translate each of your heartbreaks into heroism. And more than all else, to lead is to be a force for good on this tiny planet of ours. - Robin Sharma

I've always viewed bragging as a major defect of character. The more powerful a person truly is, the less they need to promote it. And the stronger a leader is, the less they need to announce it. - Robin Sharma

Robin Sharma Mind Power Quotes

If you care for your mind, if you nurture it and if you cultivate it just like a fertile, rich garden, it will blossom far beyond your expectations. But if you let the weeds take root, lasting peace of mind and deep inner harmony will always elude you. - Robin Sharma

Have you ever seen the inner tube of a bicycle tire? [...] When it is fully inflated, it can easily take you to your destination. But if there are leaks in it, the tube eventually deflates, and your journey comes to an abrupt end. This is also how the mind works. Worry causes your precious mental energy and potential to leak, just like air leaking out of an inner tube. Soon, you have no energy left. All of your creativity, optimism and motivation has been drained, leaving you exhausted. - Robin Sharma

All success in life, whether material or spiritual, starts with that twelve-pound mass sitting between your shoulders. Or more specifically, with the thoughts that you put into your mind every second of every minute of every day. Your outer world reflects the state of your inner world. By controlling the thoughts that you think and the way you respond to the events of your life, you begin to control your destiny. - Robin Sharma

Thoughts are vital, living things, little bundles of energy, if you will. Most people don't give any thought to the nature of their thoughts and yet, the quality of your thinking determines the quality of your life. Thoughts are just as much a part of the material world as the lake you swim in or the street you walk on. [...] If you want to live life to the fullest, care for your thoughts as you would your most prized possessions. - Robin Sharma

A worrisome thought is like an embryo: it starts off small but grows and grows. Soon it takes on a life of its own. - Robin Sharma

You see, the mind is like a lake. In our chaotic world, most people's minds are not still. We are full of inner turbulence. However, by simply taking the time to be still and quiet every day, the lake of the mind becomes as smooth as a plate of glass. This inner quietness brings with it a wealth of benefits including a deep sense of well-being, inner peace and boundless energy. - Robin Sharma

When you control your thoughts, you control your mind. When you control your mind, you control your life. And once you reach the stage of being in total control of your life, you become the master of your destiny. - Robin Sharma

Robin Sharma Morning Quotes

Take excellent care of the front end of your day, and the rest of your day will pretty much take care of itself. Own your morning. Elevate your life. - Robin Sharma

Gargantuan results are much less about your inherited genetics and far more about your daily habits. And your morning ritual is by far the most essential one to calibrate. And then automate. - Robin Sharma

The way you begin your day really does determine the extent of focus, energy, excitement and excellence you bring to it. Each early morning is a page in the story that becomes your legacy. Each new dawn is a fresh chance to unleash your brilliance, unprison your potency and play in the big leagues of iconic results. You have such power within you and it reveals itself most with the first rays of daybreak. - Robin Sharma

Life's way too valuable to hang with people who don't get you. Who you just don't vibe with. Who have different values and lower standards than you do. - Robin Sharma

Too many dumb people around these days. Taking stupid fashion pictures of themselves with pouty lips in clothes they can't afford. Hanging with people they don't even like.

Ultimately, the degree of courage you live with determines the amount of fulfillment you receive. - Robin Sharma

Some books are meant to be tasted, some books are meant to be chewed and, finally, some books are meant to be swallowed whole. - Robin Sharma

Apply their strategies for success and you will be astonished by the improvements you will note in your life. - Robin Sharma

There is nothing wrong with making mistakes. Mistakes are part of life and essential for growth.
