To be honest with onself is the only way to progress – Dadi Janki

The good atmosphere is created through our mental attitude.
To be honest with onself is the only way to progress.
When we do not perform well, it is tempting to make excuses. One of the hardest things to learn is how to acknowledge our weaknesses. Until we are able to do this, we will continue deluding ourselves that we are something we are not, and we will never reach our full potential.
Never miss any opportunity for doing service. To do service is to increase distribute one's fortune and to become worthy of receiving God's love.
When I am totally honest with myself, I will be able to see my weakness as clearly as in the mirror. Once I have accepted that I need to make changes, I will become motivated to succeed. Each small success will inspire me to the next step and I will continue to progress.
