Four quotes by reputable individuals from diverse fields offer not just motivation but valuable lessons that can pave the way for personal growth and success. Let’s delve into these words of wisdom and explore the profound teachings that can empower and propel you towards thriving in the coming year.


Quote by Malala Yousafzai – (Pakistan):

One child, one teacher, one book, one pen can change the world.”

Lesson: Malala Yousafzai’s quote emphasizes the transformative power of education. In 2024, let it be a reminder that every small action, every bit of knowledge, has the potential to spark change. Invest in learning and education, both for yourself and others, and witness the ripple effect it can create.


Quote by Yuko Kuramoto – Life creator & Personal development  (Japan)

You have to listen to what is said around you and pay attention to what is not

Lesson: Yuko Kuramoto tries to instill the teachings of self-awareness, living in the present and finding your true self within the chaos that tries to derail us all. She believes that we should try to identify the intangible things that try to draw us into the negative whilst paying adept attention to the reflections of our behavior as that tells more about us than our premeditated actions.


Quote by Yo-Yo Ma – Renowned Cellist and UN Messenger of Peace (France):

I’m always fascinated by the way memory diffuses fact.”

Lesson: Yo-Yo Ma’s contemplation on memory prompts us to consider the fluid nature of our recollections. As we navigate the complexities of 2024, remember that our perceptions can shape our reality. Embrace the ability to reinterpret and learn from past experiences, allowing for growth and resilience.


Quote by Priyanka Chopra Jonas – Actress and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador (India):

You can’t control the cards you’re dealt, but you can control how you play them.”

Lesson: Priyanka Chopra Jonas encourages a mindset of resilience and agency. In the face of uncertainties and challenges in the coming year, focus on your responses and actions. Your attitude and approach can be the driving force in turning challenges into opportunities.


Quote by Aung San Suu Kyi – State Counsellor of Myanmar (Burma):

It is not power that corrupts but fear. Fear of losing power corrupts those who wield it and fear of the scourge of power corrupts those who are subject to it.”

Lesson: Aung San Suu Kyi’s insight delves into the corrupting nature of fear associated with power. In the coming year, reflect on the dynamics of power in your own life. Whether as a leader or as someone navigating authority, understanding and addressing the fears associated with power can foster ethical and compassionate decision-making.


As we absorb the lessons from these living Asian icons, let their wisdom be the fuel that propels you forward in 2024. Whether it’s championing education, embracing the malleability of memory, asserting control over your responses, or prioritizing the right attitude and decisions, these teachings serve as invaluable compass points on the path to thriving in the New Year. May these quotes inspire you to navigate the complexities of 2024 with resilience, wisdom, and a proactive spirit, unlocking the doors to personal and collective success.
