    Don't stop till you attain your goal.

    Arise, awake, and stop not till the goal is reached is a sloka of Katha Upanishad. This sloka was made famous by Swami Vivekananda.

    In the Mahabaratha, the human beings are divided into three types. The first type is those who never start working thinking that the task is very difficult. These are very low-grade people, it says. The second type will start working on the task but in between, they give it up as they cannot put in enough effort. They are medium grade people. And the third type is the people who will start the work and see that they will attain the goal. They are the top grade people.

    Let us get up, get fresh and start working on our goal. Never stop the activity till we achieve the desired result. This is what this sloka from Katha Upanishad preaches. All great people belong to the third type only.

    Everybody should work towards a goal and must keep working till we attain the result. This is the lesson we should learn from this sloka.

    Nice saying of old era and that is still holds good even for today. By this phrase we mean, that we should not get dejected , or feel rejected when the goal is not achieved in the first attempt. May be our probing and planning was at fault and that resulted in failure. But that should not deter your determination to surge ahead and be the winner. Once a failure, you will learn the intricacies of life and be alert to achieve the success immediately. Even in second attempt some may have the over confidence and may slip to a non performer. Never mind the third attempt would be prestige issue and one will succeed in the attempt.

    100% correct. Swami Vivekananda has already said this: "Arise, awake and stop not till the goal is reached''. So, let us find a goal and give 100% to reach the goal. That is the success-mantra of life.
    Beware! I question everything and everybody.

    well said sir, Everybody should have a goal and a path to reach it.Every river, big or small flows with a single aim to reach the sea. A life led just for the sake of living has little meaning.

    Achievements and ambitions that we dream to have a better meaning life are the stepping stones, once we chart out the way to fulfil our goals, we have to strive hard to reach it, to complete it. Hurdles, obstacles should be momentary distractions that test our willpower but make us stronger to succeed.

    Dreaming to go great things are in our minds only, having realistic goals are a means to give shape to those dreams and we should never stop until those dreams are realised.

    Absolutely right Sir... we should keep moving and keep working till we reach our goal. We have a big life to prove ourself, to make the best out of it. To be what we want to be, to follow our path.
    Do what inspires you !!
