5 Things to Learn From Gandhi Ji On His birthday
On this 2nd October, let’s not just enjoy it as a gazzated holiday; instead, let’s make this a learning day and adopt a different attitude towards life. Here are 5 selected quotes of Mahatma Gandhi to learn from that would surely bring a good change in the life of each one of us.
“You must be the change you want to see in the world,” said Gandhi ji. He had said, “As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world – that is the myth of the atomic age – as in being able to remake ourselves.”
So, he suggests that one must change himself and the world would change automatically. You need to change your thinking, the way you feel and the actions that you take. If there is anything that you want to get changed, be it in your personal life or professional, adopt a different perspective towards it and make actions accordingly. You’ll surely get the change that you want to see.
You are in control:
“Nobody can hurt me without my permission.”
Your actions and reactions are upto you. It is upto you how you react towards situations or things, so you are in your own control. You just have to put little more efforts in refining yourself to control yourself. By doing this, you’ll get stronger each passing day.
Your actions would lead you:
“An ounce of practice is worth more than tons of preaching.”
If you really want to achieve something or reach to a destination, your actions would help you. You need to practice on your actions to be sure that you make the right move.
“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”
Gandhi ji advices to be persistent in life. Persistence has the power of fading away the opposition. If you are persistent in life, your inner resistance that holds you back while taking crucial actions will get weaker when you stay persistent. Gandhi had even said that whenever you feel difficult to persist, keep your sense of humor alive, as that would lighten things.
Continue to grow and evolve:
”Constant development is the law of life, and a man who always tries to maintain his dogmas in order to appear consistent drives himself into a false position.”
Well, this tip is much much needed today. If you have to grow in life, keep improving your skills and reevaluating your evaluations. It is important to get deeper understanding of the world around you, and for this you have to grow. Well, if you don’t do this, you would drive yourself to a negative place. You’ll uphold or cling to your old views instead of realizing that something is wrong somewhere. If you really want to live a happy life choose a path of continuous growth.
