Indian Monk, Swami Vivekananda, once wrote; “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.” An idea and a dream, proved that one can not only think it but achieve it with hard work and aspiration.
