I have sent out 19 tweets during the month. Given below are some of them;
  1. Our potential to grow is only limited by our level of imagination. So imagine and start unlocking that potential.
  2. Everything that is real today was once an imagination. So imagine and start creating your tomorrow.
  3. Imagine your future, take baby steps, learn from obstacles, take more baby step, get up when you fall down, take more steps, celebrate success, and take more steps and …
  4. Obstacles are our friends, they help us grow, love them, hug them!
  5. Respond to negative people by showing success through action, not by words!
  6. Measure the success of your life through the quality of your spiritualty, relationships, emotions, knowledge, health and finances. Real success is great balance in all these areas.
  7. If you feel emotionally down, change your body posture to a more positive one and feel your mood getting better.
  8. If you want to be a winner, think like winner, speak like a winner, walk like a winner and see those wins entering your life.
  9. If you want others to be positive, help them change their body posture to a more positive one.
  10. Our thoughts shape our words, our words shape our attitudes, our attitudes shape our behaviours and our behaviours shape our future.
  11. Think BIG thoughts, relish small pleasures, celebrate small wins and give your hearts out.
  12. Chains are negative thoughts that tie us down. They can be broken if you decide. Decide and act now.
  13. If you don’t have any obstacles, go down on your knees and ask god; ‘Don’t you trust me anymore?’
  14. Life is not measured by its duration, but by its donation, Love is not measured by its intensity, but by its donation, Success is not measured by its achievement, but by its donation. So Donate! Donate! Donate! and find happiness!
