Motivational Quotes by Swami Vivekananda

Swami Vivekananda was born on 12th January, 1863 in Kolkata (previously known as Calcutta). He was a renowned spiritual leader and social reformer. His birth name was Narendranath Dutta. However later in life, after the demise of his Guru Swami Ramakrishna Paramhansa, when he founded Ramakrishna Math along with other 14 disciples of Shri Ramakrishna and took vows of monkhood, his name was changed to Vivekananda meaning rejoicing in knowledge.

His literary works include Raja Yoga, Karma Yoga, Bhakti Yoga, Jnana Yoga,  My Master, Lectures from Colombo to Almora. He remarkably introduced Hinduism to the world by giving brilliant speeches in Parliament of Religions held in Chicago in 1893. He then stayed in America for almost two and a half years and founded Vedanta Society of New York. He returned to India in 1897 and started Ramakrishna Mission to help the people in need. They established schools, colleges and hospitals and also provided teachings of Vedanta to all. He died at a young age of 39 after accomplishing so much in his short life.

Here are some very motivational quotes by Swami Vivekananda on self-belief and success which are sure to inspire you at all times in life


  1. Arise, awake, and stop not until the goal is achieved. Arise, awake, sleep no more; within each of you there is the power to remove all wants and all miseries. Believe this, and that power will be manifested.


  1. Take up one idea, make that one idea your life, think of it, dream of it, 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.


  1. Always try to represent yourself happy because initially, it becomes your look. Gradually it becomes your habit and finally, it becomes your personality.


  1. See for the highest, aim at the highest, and you shall reach the highest.


  1. Talk to yourself once in a day, otherwise, you may miss meeting an excellent person in this world.


  1. All the powers in the universe are already ours. It is we who have put our hands before our eyes and cry that it is dark.


  1. Take Risks in Your Life If u Win, U Can Lead! If u Lose, U Can Guide!


  1. You cannot believe in god until you believe in yourself.


  1. Conquer yourself and the whole universe is yours.


  1. The greatest sin is to think that you are weak. Whatever you think that you will be, if you think yourself weak, weak you will be; if you think yourself strong, strong you will be.


  1. However we may receive blows, and however knocked about we may be, the Soul is there and is never injured. We are that Infinite.


  1. There is only one difference between Dream and Aim: Dream requires effortless sleep! and Aim requires sleepless effort! So sleep for dreams and wake up for aims.


  1. Dare to be free, dare to go as far as your thought leads, and dare to carry that out in your life.


  1. Things do not grow better; they remain as they are. It is we who grow better, by the changes we make in ourselves.


  1. It is a very hard thing to understand, but you will come to learn in time that nothing in the universe has power over you until you allow it to exercise such a power.


I hope these quotes have removed any doubt you had regarding yourself and taken you towards your goals feeling extremely motivated.
