5 Qualities of Mahatma Gandhi and How to Incorporate them In Your Life

Be The Change, We Want To See

We but mirror the world. All the tendencies present in the outer world are to be found in the world of our body. If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. This is the divine mystery supreme, what a wonderful thing it is and the source of our happiness. We need not wait to see what others do.

Persistence

A significant part of his life was due to his extraordinary persistence once he had articulated his vision and his methods. His determination in following through on what he preached was often at cost to his own well-being and may have ultimately cost his life.  His persistence in following non-violence is best epitomized by his march to Dandi to protest against the tax on salt. Even at more basic levels, Gandhi followed through on what he set out to do

Accepting Failure

The life of Mahatma Gandhi to see if it has any examples that can help us deal more calmly with failure. Like all of us, Gandhi was also plagued by his insecurities and failures. Most people talk speak about Gandhi’s hits, but very few talk about his misses. It is these misses I want to talk about. While the lessons can be applied to many contexts I will focus on their direct application to the world of sports.

Carefully watch your thoughts, for they become your words. Manage and watch your words, for they will become your actions. Consider and judge your actions, for they become your habits. Acknowledge and watch your habits, for they shall become your values. Understand and embrace your values, for they become your destiny.

 

People’s Empowerment

Mahatma Gandhi was an empowering leader because he empowered all Indians on a salt march to corrupt the British economic system. Since he was pioneer of Satyagraha, he also inspired all Indians to understand and learn resistance through non-violent civil disobedience. Gandhi was a visionary leader

Discipline

Self-discipline constituted a whole trajectory of virtues such as self-restraint, self-purification, self-cultivation, and self-growth. He believed that one should start the task of improvement with one- self since this is the only place in the universe that one can be sure of improving.
