Give the change a chance to start with you
“Be the change that you want to see in the world.” – Mahatma Gandhi
Mahatma Gandhi taught us to implement the things in ourselves than expecting others to do for us. We often expect others to change and we end up blaming them for every misfortune, difficulties, and adversities which according to Mahatma Gandhi is not a wise virtue. Hence he always taught us to bring positive change in ourselves initially then it can lead to a good change among others. It starts accepting own faults and shortcomings then learning from that which will be the life lessons.
Be positive and humble
“If I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.” – Mahatma Gandhi
Staying positive, humble and grounded is the key for the accomplishment of the goals we aim. A positive attitude helps us face every adversities and difficulty in life and go through them. Positivity leads to one’s happiness, self-satisfaction, and longevity. We should learn from Mahatma Gandi to be humble to everyone and treat them with respect and gratitude. We should treat them the way we like to be treated.
Believe in Love
“The day the power of love overrules the love of power, the world will know peace.” – Mahatma Gandhi
Love is an incredible feeling which lets us give everything we have without having any expectation in return. Mahatma Gandi said that when there is love, there exists peace. He taught us to love everyone wholeheartedly without having any selfish motives.Mahatma Gandhi is the man who always believed in the fact that love, compassion, tolerance, and patience can lead to the way of victory.
Forgiveness is a strength
“The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.” – Mahatma Gandhi
Forgiveness sooner or later leads to the way of eternal peace and happiness. This is what Mahatma Gandhi taught us. Normally no one really forgives, rather there is a feeling of revenge which we should avoid. Forgiving does not mean we are weak rather it means how strong we actually are.
Live like there’s no any next day
“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.” – Mahatma Gandhi
Future is uncertain, which no one can determine. That is just foolishness to worry and think unnecessarily about the future which is only gonna worry us. Mahatma Gandhi always lived his life to fullest, never got worried for the future and enjoyed every little moment of life. We should be learning this from him for a better present life.
Truth always wins
“Even if you are a minority of one, the truth is the truth.” – Mahatma Gandhi
Mahatma Gandhi always followed the path of truth regardless of its consequences and how hard it was. He always believed that ultimately the only thing which wins over everything is Truth. We must be true to ourselves then only we can think of being true to others. Being true always offers a good outcome at the end. So, we should learn to be truthful for a better life.
