We can either awaken to this act of nature, or we can turn a blind eye to it and, in doing so, keep repeating the mistakes of the past until the pain becomes so great that we have no choice but to change.”
Robin S. Sharma, The Saint, Surfer, and CEO

Robin S. Sharma, The Saint, the Surfer, and the CEO: A Remarkable Story about Living Your Heart's Desires
“The starting point of enlightenment, a goal that every person should strive for, is inner leadership. Leadership is far more than something businesspeople do at work. Leadership is all about personal responsibility, self-discovery, and creating value in the world by the people we become. Too many people spend their time blaming others for all that isn’t working in their lives. We blame our spouses for our unhappy home lives; we blame our bosses for our distress at work; we blame strangers on the freeway for making us angry; we blame our parents for keeping us small. Blame, blame, blame, blame. But blaming others is nothing more than excusing yourself. Blaming others for the current quality of your life is a sad way to live. In doing so, all you’re doing is playing the victim.”
Robin S. Sharma, The Saint, Surfer, and CEO
“That it will never come again is what makes life so sweet.”
Robin S. Sharma, The Saint, Surfer, and CEO
“Most people are always running toward this fantasyland that they think will solve all their problems and fill them up with joy. They tell themselves, ‘Once I achieve this or that, I’ll be happy.’ But I believe that happiness isn’t a place you get to—it’s an inner state you create. Anyone can be happy—it’s available to everyone and is available right now. We just need to stop and pay more attention to the treasures that already surround us.”
Robin S. Sharma, The Saint, Surfer, and CEO
“That’s what unconditional love is all about—being an encourager of people’s passions, loves, and dreams—even if you don’t agree with them.”
Robin S. Sharma, The Saint, Surfer, and CEO

Robin Sharma, El santo, el surfista y el ejecutivo
“Tako sem se naučil,da je pomembno to, kar je v notranjosti, ne glede na to, kako čudovit je zunanji svet. In če je tvoj notranji svet neurejen in nezdrav, te ne bo osrečilo nič, kar dobiš zunaj. Če pa je tvoj notranji svet zdrav in izpolnjen, ti bodo najpreprostejše in najosnovnejše reči v zunanjem svetu napolnile srce in dušo.”
Robin S. Sharma, The Saint, the Surfer, and the CEO: A Remarkable Story about Living Your Heart's Desires
“For your life to be great, your faith must be bigger than your fears. It’s only when you have faith in the fact that, as you say, the universe is a friendly place and it’s bigger than the fears that have limited you—only then will your brightest life come calling.”
Robin S. Sharma, The Saint, Surfer, and CEO
“Vidiš, Jack, život ima svoje uspone i padove. Većina ljudi zaplete se u
tu dramu. Kada je sve dobro, sretni smo. Kada doživimo nešto loše, tužni smo. To je jadan
pristup životu. Čovjek postaje nalik komadu drveta kojega nosi riječna struja. Okreće se u
skladu sa strujom: u jednom trenutku ide u jednom smjeru, a zatim u drugom. Mnogo je
mudrije suzdržavati se od svakog osuđivanja. Prestani ocjenjivati svoja životna iskustva i
jednostavno ih prihvati bez opiranja.”
Robin S. Sharma, The Saint, the Surfer, and the CEO: A Remarkable Story about Living Your Heart's Desires
“Potom moraš uvidjeti da je život zapravo škola i da je
svako tvoje iskustvo prelijepo.”

“Esmu sapratis, ka mūsu dzīve ir nekas vairāk kā mirkļu virknējums - ja palaidīsi garām mirkļus, tu palaidīsi garām savu dzīvi.”
Robin Sharma, The Saint The Surfer and The CEO
“The starting point of enlightenment, a goal that every person should strive for, is inner leadership. Leadership is far more than something businesspeople do at work. Leadership is all about personal responsibility, self-discovery, and creating value in the world by the people we become.”

“Svakoga se dana otputiš u svijet, no zapravo odlaziš u školu.I,jednako kao i tradicionalna škola, život ima svoj nastavni plan sastavljen od predmeta koji obuhvaćaju različite pouke. Kada, usvojivši njegovu pouku, svladaš neki predmet, prelaziš na sljedeći."
"A ako ne usvojim pouku?"
"Ah, tada ponavljaš gradivo – naravno", ozbiljno je rekao. "To se naziva ponavljanje.Svako iskustvo tvojega života donosi ti pouku koja ti je najpotrebnija da bi se uzdignuo na
sljedeću razinu svojega života. Kad je učenik spreman, učitelj se neizostavno pojavljuje.""Dakle, ako shvatiš
taj proces i u svakoj situaciji opaziš mogućnost učenja, spreman si započeti sa sljedećim
predmetom. Kada zaključiš neki predmet, zaključuješ i svoj dotadašnji način života jer kad
usvojiš potrebnu pouku, osoba ili situacija koja ti ju je donijela više se ne pojavljuje u tvojem
životu. Gotovo kao da odbacujemo staru kožu svaki put kada usvojimo novu pouku, svladamo
novi predmet i prijeđemo na sljedeći, uzvišeniji dio svojega životnog puta."
"Sve je to zapravo savršeno ustrojeno", rekao sam zamišljeno.
"Jest. No, ako ne prihvatiš pouku određenog iskustva, recimo zbog toga što optužuješ drugu
osobu koja je sudjelovala u tom iskustvu, i ne uvidiš mudrost koju si trebao usvojiti, te će se
okolnosti ponavljati u tvojem životu sve dok konačno ne shvatiš. A što više propuštaš neku
pouku, to će ona pristizati sa sve bolnijim iskustvima i na posljetku ćeš toliko duboko patiti da
će usvajanje pouke biti tvoj jedini izlaz."No, zapravo ti želim reći sljedeće: tvoja trenutna stvarnost nije ništa drugo doli odraz pouka
koje su ti najpotrebnije.”

“Everything happens for a reason, and there are no accidents in life—”
Robin S. Sharma, The Saint, Surfer, and CEO
“we have to juggle a number of different balls. Some balls, like the one that represents career, are made of rubber. If we drop them, they have the ability to bounce back. But some balls are made of glass—family is like that. If you drop that ball, it doesn’t come back.”
Robin S. Sharma, The Saint, Surfer, and CEO
“Da, budi dosljedan, budi iskren i budi ono što jesi. Kada to uspiješ, tvoje će
samopoštovanje znatno porasti i osjetit ćeš veliko samopouzdanje.”
Robin S. Sharma, The Saint, the Surfer, and the CEO: A Remarkable Story about Living Your Heart's Desires
“Ali upamti da strah nije ništa
drugo doli osjećaj - nije stvaran. Nikada nemoj bježati od svojih strahova; uvijek hrli prema
njima. Mjesto na kojemu prebivaju tvoji najveći strahovi ujedno je i mjesto najvećeg razvoja.
A budući da je razvoj smisao ljudskog života, prihvati sjajnu mogućnost koju ti nudi strah.
Kao što sam već rekao, ono čega se plašiš nudi ti vrlo plodno tlo za samospoznaju.”
Robin S. Sharma, The Saint, the Surfer, and the CEO: A Remarkable Story about Living Your Heart's Desires
“Mnogi neprestano optužuju druge za sve što nije dobro u njihovim životima. Supružnike optužujemo za nezadovoljstvo u obitelji; šefove optužujemo za teškoće na radnom mjestu; neznance na autocesti optužujemo da su nas naljutili; roditelje optužujemo jer smo se uz njih osjećali nevažnima. Optužujemo, optužujemo, optužujemo, optužujemo. Ali, optuživanje nije ništa drugo doli opravdavanje samoga sebe. Optuživanje drugih za kvalitetu vlastitoga života bijedan je način življenja. Tako samo izigravaš žrtvu.”
Robin S. Sharma, The Saint, the Surfer and the CEO: A Remarkable Story About Living Your Heart's Desires
“I don’t think about what I’ll get from someone else. Instead, all I care about is what I can give. And that, my friend, has made me a very happy man.”
