Gandhi’s Philosophies on Life are Relevant Even Today

His birth anniversary celebrations, a week ago on October 2, made me revisit an old blog on why the Mahatma continues to inspire many!

Believe and the means will follow

‘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.’

Make a difference by adding value

‘Be the change that you want to see in the world.’

Determine your pace for growth

‘There is more to life than simply increasing its speed.’

Keep moving toward your goal

‘Glory lies in the attempt to reach one’s goal and not in reaching it.’

Follow a code of conduct

‘It is difficult, but not impossible, to conduct strictly honest business.’

Make leadership about people

‘I suppose leadership at one time meant muscles; but today it means getting along with people.’

Create space for experimentation

‘Freedom is not worth having if it does not include the freedom to make mistakes.’

‘In a gentle way, you can shake the world.’
