30 Fascinating Quotes from the Monk Who Sold His Ferrari by Robin Sharma

Last Updated on January 5, 2021 by The Unbounded Thinker

The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari is an amazing book by Robin Sharma. Robin Sharma writes about a successful lawyer who quits his job and sells his Ferrari. Through this lawyer, Robin Sharma provides amazing life lessons that enable readers to live with peace and purpose. He also teaches the importance of enjoying little things, the secret to a happy life, and the importance of silence and solitude.

For these reasons, you must read Robin Sharma’s book if you want to learn how to live your life to the fullest. 

I once shared 19 quotes from this book and its main lessons. I read the book again and today, I will share more quotes with you in this post.

Enjoy Robin Sharma’s quotes:

  1. ‘If you care for your mind, if you nurture it and if you cultivate it just like a fertile, rich garden, it will blossom far beyond your expectations. But if you let the weeds take root, lasting peace of mind and deeper inner harmony will always elude you.’
  2. ‘Worry drains the mind much of its power and, sooner or later, it injures the soul.’
  3. ‘We all come from the same universal source. However, the ones who do more than just exist, the ones who fan the flames of their human potential and truly savour the magical dance of life do different things than those whose lives are ordinary. Foremost amongst the things that they do is adopt a positive paradigm about their world and all that is in it.’
  4. ‘There is no such thing as objective reality or ‘the real world.’ There are no absolutes. The face of your greatest enemy might be the face of my finest friend.’
  5. ‘By controlling the thoughts that you think and the way you respond to the events of your life, you begin to control your destiny.’
  6. ‘There is no such thing as a negative experience, only opportunities to grow, learn and advance along the road of self-mastery.’
  7. ‘Every event offers you lessons. These little lessons fuel your inner and outer growth.’
  8. ‘Things are always created twice; first in the workshop of the mind and then, and only then, in reality.’
  9. ‘When you learn to take control of your thoughts and vividly imagine all that you desire from this worldly existence in a state of total expectancy, dormant forces will awaken inside you.’
  10. ‘The mind is a wonderful servant but a terrible master. If you have become a negative thinker, it is because you have not cared for your mind and taken the time to train it to focus on the good.’
  11. ‘Persistence is the mother of personal change.’
  12. ‘If you study the happiest, healthiest, most satisfied people of our world, you will see that each and every one of them has found their passion in life, and then spent their days pursuing it.’
  13. ‘Thoughts are vital, living things, little bundles of energy if you will. Most people don’t give any thought to the nature of their thoughts and yet, the quality of your thinking determines the quality of your life.’
  14. ‘Thoughts are just as much a part of the material world as the lake you swim in or the street you walk on. Weak minds lead to weak actions. A strong, disciplined mind, which anyone can cultivate through daily practice, can achieve miracles.’
  15. ‘Einstein said that ‘imagination is more important than knowledge.’ You must spend some time every day, even if it is just a few minutes, in the practice of creative envisioning. See yourself as you want to be.’
  16. ‘There is nothing noble about being superior to some other person. True nobility lies in being superior to your former self.’
  17. ‘I once read that people who study others are wise but those who study themselves are enlightened.’
  18. ‘Never let the weeds of impure thought and action take the garden of your mind. Stand guard at the gateway of your mind. Keep it healthy and strong – it will work miracles in your life if you will only let it.’
  19. ‘If at all possible, commune with nature daily. A quick walk through the woods or even a few minutes spent cultivating your tomato garden in the backyard will reconnect you to the wellspring of calm that may now be dormant within you.’
  20. ‘You are what you think about all day long. You are also what you say to yourself all day long.’
  21. ‘Focus only on your priorities, those activities which are truly meaningful. Your life will be uncluttered, rewarding, and exceptionally peaceful. This I promise you.’
  22. ‘The universe favours the brave. When you resolve, once and for all, to lift your life to its highest level, the strength of your soul will guide you.’
  23. ‘Stand your ground and follow your dreams. They will lead you to your destiny. Follow your destiny, it will lead you into the wonders of the universe.’
  24. ‘When you control your thoughts, you control your mind. When you control your mind, you control your life. And once you reach the stage of being in total control of your life, you become the master of your destiny.’
  25. ‘Decide to do the things you know you should be doing rather than walking the path of least resistance.’
  26. ‘Have the discipline to focus your time around your priorities. The most meaningful things in your life should never be sacrificed to those that are least meaningful.’
  27. ‘Don’t pick up your phone every time it rings. It is there for your convenience, not for the convenience of others.’
  28. ‘No matter how big a house you have or how slick a car you drive, the only thing you can take with you at the end of your life is your conscience.’
  29. ‘The meaning is clear – when you work to improve the lives of others, you indirectly elevate your own life in the process. When you take care to practice random acts of kindness daily, your own life becomes far richer and more meaningful.’
  30. ‘To dramatically improve the quality of your life, you must cultivate a new perspective of why you are here on Earth. You must realize that, as you entered the world with nothing, you are destined to leave with nothing.’
