His teachings can be easily applied practical in day to day life.
He has given two virtues which guarantee success in anything you aim for .
Shradha and Saburi
Passion and Patience
IF anybody has these 2 things he/she can achieve anything , whatever he/she desires , whatever his or her dreams are.
This is not a thing for which you can say “happens in fairy tales” or
“Looks good in saying , practical not possible” .
I completely agree that it is difficult but it never can be impossible.
Let us analyse passion first . What words came to your mind when you hear passion . Determination , motivation , will . Passion is much more than these. While these all are good for short term goals of your life . You need passion to achieve something big .
Passion is your insistence for your goals , your insistence to accept defeat .
Passion is your battle with external and internal forces that hidden in the path to your goal. External forces like distractions , family or power pressure etc. Internal forces comes from within you like your ego , laziness , hesitation etc. You need to fight them to achieve your goal.
There are various ways to fight them to develop and maintain your passion
1. Be positive always
Look at everything with a positive altitude . Weather it is mockery or insults or criticism. Try to learn from everything . When you see positive on negative things , they will make you mentally stronger as well as will bring out your weaknesses and strengths.
2.Make sure you deserve it
Put enough efforts to strive for your goals . Anything can only be obtained with hard work . You have no right to blame god or fate when out it is your fault . You cannot have passion along with guilt .
3. Try to take the right path always
Try not to take any unethical path to achieve your goals. The wrong path will eventually harm you in some way or the other. You will never have satisfaction or peace of mind even if you will succeed . For more info on this you can read

goal tracking apps . When you visually see the bar of your goal rising , you will be motivated you carry on forwarded . Also you can judge are you upto the mark.
