He advised talking to oneself at least once a day so we do not miss meeting an excellent person in the world. Thus, he implies we are all excellent people.

He instructed us to fill the brain with high thoughts and ideals. We should place them before us day and night. Great work will come out of this.
He said that whatever we think, that we will be. If you think we are weak, we will be weak. But if we think we are strong, we will be strong.
Swami Vivekananda’s teachings show us how we can reach our goals and be successful people. We should all try to live life by his wise words.
