  1. Dear Gurudev, I know that you have stayed by my side when I had no one to talk to or express myself. I have not been successful at work so far and often I am unlucky. I have not been able to take things to completion. Please help me with your advice?

    The pain or the concern that 'I have not been able to complete things' itself will take you towards completion. So just relax.
    If you don’t feel concerned that you are not completing things, then there is a problem. But you have ...

  2. Gurudev, why is it that only some people get success in life even though everyone is working hard?

    No, don’t think that way. Like I said, two options, either you win or you make others win. Don’t lose your heart. Each one of us on this planet is unique, so don’t compare yourself with others.
    You don’t know ho ...

  3. Gurudev, How can I prepare myself to achieve success in life?

    Smart working, hard working and be open to new ideas and don’t get stuck. The most important of all this is to be relaxed deep within. ...
  4. Gurudev, how do I explain the idea of success to my children in simple straight words?

    Children do not mind success or failure. For kids I would say leave them as they are and don’t try to put a concept of success or failure in their minds. Let them experience life in totality; as it comes to them.

    For adults I have a different formula. ...

  5. Gurudev, We have heard that you have a 20 hour day, where do you get the drive and the inspiration from?

    When you want to do some work, energy is there. There is an old saying, ‘Where there is a will there is a way’.
    One thing I always believed in was that, never do anything that is not in your nature, that doesn't feel natural to you. When ...
  6. Gurudev, Why doesn’t success bring satisfaction? Does success have to be measured materially?

    It depends on your definition of success.
    To me, success is the smile that doesn’t die out. It is the confidence that doesn’t wither away. It is the confidence that one can maintain in any situation in life, even when situations are tough; this indica ...
  7. Gurudev, what use is my humility if I am not successful? Humility without success doesn’t really mean anything. What do you think?

    Arrogance is not going to bring you success, either. Humility does not mean being wiggly, wiggly. Humility does not need to be that way. Humility is friendliness, simplicity, and being natural. If it is that much, it is always good.
    You cannot be succe ...
  8. Gurudev, success to this world means money, power and fame. How does one know if we are successful? Is there any measure?

    To me, the sign of success is a smile. The number of smiles that one has in their day-to-day life indicates how successful one is.

    You may have a big bank balance, a lot of money. But, if you can’t smile, if you are tensed, upset and angry, would you c ...

  9. Gurudev, how can being effortless make me successful in life? Please elaborate.

    Like when you want an arrow to go forward, you pull it backward, right? Similarly, effortlessness gives you deep rest, and that helps you to tap into the source of intuition, creativity, and energy. Then you come out and act from that.
    You cannot say, ...
  10. Gurudev, I have given my M.Tech exams. It is super competitive. What if I don't get into a college that I like? My life will be ruined. Can I still be a success in life if I don't get into a good college?

    Absolutely! I tell you, don't put all your success into one small incident, or one small happening in life.
    You can be really successful even if failure comes in one aspect of your life. ...
