Their work has unquestionably altered the world we know today in a positive manner and they have really set the foundation for worldly progression and sociological change. Every year the prizes are awarded on December 10, the Nobel Prize ceremony taking place in Stockholm, Sweden and the Nobel Peace Prize Ceremony in Oslo, Norway. Here are 7 inspirational lessons from Nobel Prize winners that will motivate you to reach all your goals:

1 Malala Yousafza

The brave Malala has taught us that we need to prioritize knowledge over violence and that education is the only thing that will make our society live in peace and prosper. So just like she said at the banquet speech: “Let us pick up our books and pens. They are the most powerful weapons.”.

2 Niels Henrik David Bohr

He taught us that it’s okay to make mistakes, after all we are all human and none of us is perfect but the most important thing is to make sure that you learn from them, so you won’t repeat them in the future. He says that “An expert is a person who has found out by his own painful experience all the mistakes that one can make in a very narrow field.”.

3 Nelson Mandela

Nelson Mandela taught us one of the most important life lessons: the difference between fear and being afraid. He said that “The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.” and he couldn’t be more right! You can’t move forward and reach your goals if you let fear stand in the way of your success.

4 George Bernard Shaw

One of the most important life lessons this Nobel Prize Winner for Literature has taught us is that circumstances are made, not given. You can actually create your own opportunities, so take action and do everything in your power to fulfill your dreams. One of the most inspiring things this amazing author said is that “The people who get on in this world are the people who get fed up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if they can’t find them, make them.”.

5 Rudyard Kipling

Rudyard Kipling, the author of the famous The Jungle Book has taught us that words have an extraordinary power and they can really open many doors if they are used wisely. They can also hurt very easily, so think before you speak so you won’t have anything to be sorry about later. Just as he said “Words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind.”.

6 Theodore Roosevelt

This Nobel Peace Prize Winner has taught us that if you want to reach an important goal, then you need to break it down into smaller parts, since one step daily will eventually help you climb a mountain. In his acceptance speech he said that “if we cannot attain all at one leap, we must advance towards it step by step, reasonably content so long as we do actually make some progress in the right direction.”.

7 Martin Luther King Jr

Among the many important lessons Martin Luther King Jr. taught us, one of the most important ones is about the beauty of camaraderie. Friends will help make your life easier, they will motivate and inspire you and they will always be there by your side when you need them. Just as Martin Luther King Jr. said “…the beauty of genuine brotherhood and peace is more precious than diamonds or silver or gold.”.
