Gandhi, The father of our nation, the man behind the idea of non violence, a person known for his indomitable will, determination, self belief, values, morale, thoughts, actions and so much more has always been close to our hearts. I have been fond of his words, maybe because he had the strength to live most of them through his action and that made a huge difference, both in his life and ours as well. Here is a collection of 5 best quotes from Gandhi and our thoughts on it.
Satisfaction lies in the effort, not in the attainment, full effort is full victory.
Too many times, it has been thought that the final result is the end of all, that means everything in life. No one seems to care how we got there, no one likes to see the hard work behind the entire process and the personality shifts and changes we have gone through to make it happen. Success isn’t just about getting independence to a nation, it is also about how you do it, it is the effort which counts, it is how you do it which mattes!
Be the change that you wish to see in the world.elumn8.files.wordpress.com
Gandhi could have decided to happily stay back, not react to anyone just crib about a few things that are wrong. There would be nothing amiss from his life, he was a person who came from a well off family and he had a pretty well figured out “Settled” life as a lawyer if he wanted to. But he was smarter than that, it is not about complaining about what all is wrong with the world. There will be plenty of things wrong with the world and also plenty of things right. If you want to make a change, then be it. Don’t preach non violence, do it. Don”t preach sacrifice do it. Don”t expect everyone around you to change, you can only change yourself and your perceptions of the change.
First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.
A man is but a product of his thoughts. What he thinks he becomes
Who are you? I think we have had multiple definitions for this one, we have so many ways to describe ourselves that it almost becomes our second nature now and we don’t even think to answer it anymore. The problem is right there! We spend so much time in these definitions that we forget to consider something extremely crucial – The action part. Intellectually, I am sure we are all very smart people but doing it is where it makes a difference. And it is all in the process of thought. If you want to become a prime minister – you can and if you want to become a jackass, you can. All you have to do is model yourself upon them!
