    At End of he day, you need to prove your inner self, excel in what ever we do. As we all are born for only one reason, that is to Praise the Lord and to bring smile on peoples face with whom we connect. So Keep Smiling. Almighty is Watching us, you never know what role he might offer you next… : )

    Hi Robin,

    That a good piece of inspirational compilation when I needed it the most. I am impressed by the collective approach that you advocate like for doing the best work, it is also essential to stay fit etc., I believe and have started integrating your holistic prophecy in my life and sharing it with all the dear ones too…

  7. Vaibhav says:


    Terrific Stuff!!! It’s going to take time to internalize all your thoughts and more time to apply and use it daily.

    That’s the key and that’s the challenge.


  8. kavita says:

    Dear Robin
    Thanks a lot for inspiring us, sometimes its really very tough but I think if we really focus
    our mind to achieve something we can do it!

  9. Dear Robin,

    Thanks for inspiring me..

    I will do my best work….

  10. Michèle says:

    Hi Robin,

    I’ve been applying tip 14: get fit like a pro-athlete. I’ve noticed that the more I exercise, the better I want to be at work and the more I want to do for my work!! There really is a direct connection between the two!

    Thank you always, Mich

  11. Kaleo Farias says:

    Absolutely Magnificent & Exceptional Robin. I absolutely believe with absolute certainty Robin in all 15 of these “True North Principles.” But if you asked me what my top 3 are i would choose numbers 14, 15, and 11. If i may be so humble Robin to ask you what your top three would be, which ones would it be?

  12. Ana Cabeca says:

    Hello Robin,
    The tiltle inspired me to read on, namely because I have been struggling in being true to myself.
    I love what I do and feel blessed to have the opportunity to not only teach but learn from the people
    I work with. I don´t feel I´ve been true to myself in the sense that I´m not showing my true potential.
    I know I´m good at what I do but I have to really let my passion shine through by devoting more
    to my work. I deserve it and so do the people I work with; I want them to be as passionate as I am :)
    Thank you Robin

  13. chetan says:

  14. prakash says:

    Dear Sir,
    realy these are very valuable points which inspire us a lot.

    thank u.

  15. Himal Soni says:

    Everyday you inspire me, every day you allow my wings to spread a little bit further and my fears to weaken a little more. These lessons to play my best game at work truly are amazing and effective. I follow you on twitter, I’ve read most of your books. And I would love to have lunch of coffee of dinner with you when you are down in south africa. If I don’t ask, I’ll never know :) I’d appreciate the courtesy of a replied email :) sound familiar? Haha

  16. Your quotes and LWT book has led me to see life for all that
    It is…. Beautiful and bountiful. You have inspired me to follow
    A deep belief I now have, which is:
    “that creativity begins with the mind
    Transcends into the written
    And formulates itself into action…
    Success shall soon follow ”
    Keep it coming Robin….

  17. I like the 5th point specifically. wow. “Do your best work by giving away the credit (especially when you crave it)”. Its a hard thing to do, giving away something when you desire it so badly. Thanks again for those words. Will try and follow from now.

  18. Harsh Wardhan says:

  22. vaneet says:

    Robin, what are your views about meditation and people who give up everything just to teach human beings how to lead a successful , happy life “without a title” through meditation ?

  23. A.RAJENDRAN says:

    dear sir,
    I still confusing to think about you how you got such a great knowledge in leadership teaching and how can a person reveal the reality of leader’s quality without any selfish prestige to tell and awake the sleeping people, I just say you are awesome. thanks for your contributions

  24. Neal Ely says:

    I like # 14. I think being fit creates a healthy body & mind. It reduces stress, and it helps us stay focused. You feel better, and I think in order for ANYONE to do their best work, they have to have a healthy body and mind, and I think the only way to do this is to be be fit and fuel our bodies with a healthy diet! More energy & less stress, now thats a recipe for success!

  25. Sabine says:

  41. jigna parsania says:

    though goal is important but the most important the result which makes difference in others life and make u satisfy what u have done, as happiness comes only through inner piece n satisfaction as Robin sharma truely said that rather than success significance is more important.

  46. Manasa says:

    hi robin
    you are truly inspiring.

    Thank you so much. You have good wishes and blessings of so many people in the world.

  47. Anusuya Prabhakaran says:

    Robin, tears shed on my eyes when I finished “The Monk who sold his Ferrari” and this is purely out of happiness and the freedom of mind I thank the almighty for given me a right path. Thanks to my friend who inspired to read the book. I tested myself in these 3 months & I’m proud that except 2-3 occasions I’m happy on every moment and eveyday and on every job I do till today

  48. Ararat Kostanian says:

    Dear Robin, I should admit that you have changed the way I used to look at life. before it was kind of burden. I’m not saying that everything is good 100% but I have improved a lot. I knew some of the points from my experience and now I’m following your points and really in a short period of time I started to realize that I’m in a different world. its not an illusion but a fact. please try your best to come to Armenia. youngsters need it here. they have no idea about enlightenment and improvement. unfortunately, we are still suffering from the communist ideology. I’ve met really good people here, but their way of thinking is limited. after communism people became so materialist here…they only think of being rich in a short period of time. you should guide these people. kind regards Ararat

  49. Neha Nigam says:

    Your ideas provide daily inspiration to work harder…makes me more dedicated and disciplined person…thanks a lot…keep inspiring..

  50. komal says:

    Dear Robin,

    As always , this reading is also a great motivation :)
    The line “The goal isn’t to live forever. The goal is to create something that will” itselft says it all.
