Swami Vivekananda – Take Up One Idea
“Take up one idea. Make that one idea 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, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success.”
– Swami Vivekananda
The path to success can be simpler than most people think, however, it involves a certain kind of compromise, a laser-sharp focus, and a nearly obsessive single-mindedness towards a goal that you’re one hundred percent convinced of. All it takes is one idea: one idea, says Swami Vivekenanda (a 19th century Hindu monk and one of the people who introduced yoga to the west), to make your life, every part of your body, your entire brain, one which will carry you to success at the expense of every other idea out there. When will you be willing to take that gamble?
