The personality is not your essence || Acharya Prashant (2013)

Why must I ask this question? Because I am concerned with what others think of me. So, you see, you lost the battle at the outset itself. You are so bothered about what others would be thinking of you. Do not ask me that how should I respond when someone asks me to describe my personality. Instead, you should ask, ‘What is personality?’ That is sufficient.

Freedom begins with a ‘No’ || Acharya Prashant (2013)

You are unable to say ‘No’ because you have stakes with that person or that situation or that authority or that institution. You are unable to say ‘No’ because you have traded away your yes and that is the only cause of fear that is ever possible. Otherwise it is impossible to scare anyone away. Nobody can scare you if you do not have greed, a stake attached to that person or authority.
