9 Quotes From HH Sheikh Mohammed That Will Inspire You To Live Your Best Life

In Sheikh Mohammed's words

Hh Sh Mo

It was more than 50 years back when the emirate of Dubai was a mere fisherman's settlement, today it's known for its ultramodern architecture, sprawling landscape, luxurious lifestyle, and as the busiest tourist destination

In a very short space of time, Dubai has undergone a remarkable transformation, and standing tall at the very centre of it is a ruler whose vision and strong leadership skills have made the city what it is today!

In Sheikh Mohammed's inspirational words

What better way to lead a positive and successful life than to take inspiration from His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of UAE and the ruler of Dubai himself. 

We take a look at some of his best quotes...

1. "The world waits for no one – those who do not learn and evolve can stumble and often fall"

The only constant in the world is change. If you don't evolve and adapt with the passage of time, how will you become successful? 

2. " A great leader creates more leaders and does not reduce the institution to a single person"

If you're not making someone else's life better, you're living yours wrong. Always learn to empower people around you. 

3. "By being humble in times of triumph and success, a leader provides a glowing example to everyone"

Humility is the most attractive trait you can ever have. 

4. "I once read an article in a foreign newspaper saying: luck smiles back at Dubai. I respond: when they want to diminish your achievements, they attribute them to luck"

Invest your maximum efforts in keeping your promises. Don't under-promise or over-promise, just meet them!
