the one who never looks from where he comes couldnt reach where he is heading to, do you believe in this statement? Many successful people who comes from poverty believe in this saying and they emphasize that we will be more successful if we are going to live like living our life before.Meaning if you eat the cheapest food before when you are still poor,now though you become rich you should still eat it, in that way you could save more..... back to the saying....do you believe in it?

yes, i believe in it. we must look back from where we are now and learned from it. it does'nt mean what you mean. this is about experiences that you encountered and learned. we cannot be where we are now without it. we are nothing without it.

Yes, I believe on that. We should always look back. We should always be greatful to those people who help us reach where we are right now. We should consider our experiences from the past as our greatest lessons in life. We should appreciate all those good and not-so-good experiences we have.

great...we should remember our failures, struggles and victories before, our sacrifices and everything...and be aware of it so that we will not fail again.....instead we should exert more efforts until we reach summit of success

It is the way in which you perceive the statement! I think this statement need not be taken literally and be given materialistic approach ! This statement in my view expresses that I shouldnot be proud of ones achievement and he shouldn't behave adamently or strogheadedly because of the success. One should be really humble even after attaining a big success in life! Modesty adds beaty to the successful people ! Its the simple living and high thinking which made many people famous all around the World! If you take example of famous people who are there in History for their good deeds,all of them were modest, simple, humble and humane in nature! This statememt also implies the same thing! Thanks friend, it was a good food for brain and quite thought provoking one! Once agin thanks for initiating such a thoughtful topic of discussion !

thanks for your brilliant idea i really appriciate it.Out from your response i learn that the peoples showing that they are powerful, that they are wealthy, that they are great is the people who is not wealthy enough....Some facts that the real wealthy people are humble, in our place it is john gokong wie a chinese merchant who becomes a secret billionaires and a stockholder of a many big business.He is really humble.But because of being wealthy he was knowned and considered as amongs country's top ten wealthiest man

Hi meenneixz, Yes and sure I believe the deep and power of words in that motivation idiom. Once be rich so we must not forget where we are originated. Actually that idiom is meant for any rich person not be back into the poverty world again. It values the advance life of thinking and not the orthodox way. It give verve and jocund value to poor people to work hard to be rich person in life and not the misinterpret on it. Observe carefully the last two (2) words for "HEADING TO". HAPPY DAPPY.

Simplicity and a real man from heart always believe in basic things. This is the motto behind any success story. We should see all our happenings from our own point of view not what the outer world says or looks like. In that way there is a clear judgement of your statement. Complexity and materialistic concepts may give success in short time but never lasts long. Simple and easy approach with the basic needs in mind builds the best development policy and hence, yoour statement is very correct and believable one.
