Mahatma Gandhi. The man doesn’t need an introduction.
The following is a list of his 10 fundamentals for changing the world, with a brief description of each by Gandhi himself. I felt that his words did a better job of explaining than I ever could.
1. Change Yourself
“You must be the change you want to see in the world.”
2. You are in Control
“Nobody can hurt me without my permission.”
3. Forgive and let it go
“An eye for eye only ends up making the whole world blind.”
4. Without action you aren’t going anywhere
“An ounce of practice is worth more than tons of preaching.”
5. Take care of this moment
“I do not want to foresee the future. I am concerned with taking care of the present. God has given me no control over the moment following.”
6. Everyone is human
“It is unwise to be too sure of one’s own wisdom. It is healthy to be reminded that the strongest might weaken and the wisest might err.”
“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”
8. See the good in people and help them
“I look only to the good qualities of men. Not being faultless myself, I won’t presume to probe into the faults of others.”
“Man becomes great exactly in the degree in which he works for the welfare of his fellow-men.”
9. Be congruent, be authentic, be your true self.
“Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.”
10. 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.”
