'Better late than never'.This proverb is synonymous with my life.I got married late.Started my business late.My wife conceived my daughter late after 12 years of marriage.I bought my house late.And i bought my car late.But during all these time I never thought I am lagging behind and concentrated on what I was doing.I am successful now.

I think mine could be 'All good things come to those who wait!' I didn't get married until I was over thirty, and didn't even look like getting close, as I couldn't find who I was looking for. I wasn't too fussed, and finally found my soulmate, and we now have the most gorgeous son and make a very happy family!

Well done to you for having done things "better late than never"! I found the proverb that works best for me which I always share with people is "Time heals all wounds"! This is most true when one breaks up with a long term partner. When I split with my ex after about 15 years I never thought I'd get over it but I tried to remember that when I had split up with short term boyfriend in my teens I thought my heart would break but only weeks later things would feel different. I applied the same adage to my marriage breaking up and gradually things became better and I mourned our break up less and less until I met my 2nd husband who I've been with for over 5 years now. When I talk to friends or relatives who go through breakups with partners after weeks or months or years, I use myself as an example and it usually helps them see things differently.

Yo man! how do you do? ok, mine would be, "give room for mistakes but never repeat it unnecessarily".. you see, I'm a 'mistake' man. i do mistakes all the times. i hurt others. i apologize. nobody's perfect. if they can give me a second chance, why must i not give them? so, i let mistakes happen at a safe level so that the lessons learned are extremely useful for the next level. cheers my friend! you're a good man!!! sorry, i replied late...:P

Nice to see the patience you have got which has lead you to sucess.I feel that you have a srong will power ,great motivation and positive attitude.I have seen most people just complaining about their inability and finding fault with other people throughout their life for any silly failure that hurdles their way of growth. I feel whoever read this discussion and have a complex that most things not going fair with them will surely get a motivation and inspiration. I always feel" This moment changes" as a inspiration words in my life.Nothing will remain as the same and definitely things will change.hence i focuss towards adopting the changes and betterness in life.

Thanks a lot Suba.I never grumble and complain.I have never been jealous of others in my life.infarct I have seen othersso jealous of me leading a happy life.They are so curious and jealous to find out my worth in money.I am not super rich.But God is kind enough to me.So i am happy with whatever I have today but still concentrate on improving the existing business and searh for new vistas.Depression,hate ,jealous,and self pity go into your blood as poison and rot the precious life given to you.

And i forgot about your favorite saying."This moment changes" I realize the truth behind this saying and thats why a raised a discussion "Do you think that your life is under your control"?Great saying indeed.

I have found "Do unto others, as you'd have them do unto you," to be true of my life. I've received many blessings over the years, as a result of this, and some of them quite recent. As I've tried my best to help others, they (or others) in turn, have helped me. Have a wonderful day.:)

That is a great saying.If you stop and think before finding fault with others it reminds you to make a self analysis of your self.

Yeah...that was gret my friend BALASRI. That proverb really deep matched with your life profile. And you are great achiever. You know why? Rather than 'tumble' so many times at young age better to be like yours. Staggeringly done with no falls and fails to the paramount. Different from mine, I've four times failed in business and I learned a lot about it until end of 2005, whoa!!!... just a good and nice take off and hopefully ever lasting. But I'm proud of one thing in my life, I never been an employee...by hook or by crook(previously)...I get it restart and learned. OK BALASRI, about my delighted proverb is "ALWAYS GIVE SMALL FISH TO GET BIG FISH". Thats all from me, happy posting my friend. You do posting and definitely I will respond.....are you happy with me, so far? If don't please tell me for my correction.
