Gandhi’s 10 Rules for Changing the World
1. Change yourself.
If we change ourselves we will change your world. If we change how we think then we will change how we feel and what actions we take.
2. You are in control.
What you feel and how you react to something is always up to you.
You can choose your own thoughts, reactions and emotions to pretty much everything. You don’t have to freak out, overreact of even react in a negative way.
3. Forgive and let it go.
“The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.”
“An eye for eye only ends up making the whole world blind.”
Forgiving and letting go of the past will do you and the people in your world a great service. Learn the lesson you need to learn from the experience and move on.
4. Without action you aren’t going anywhere.
To get where you want to go and to really understand yourself and your world you need to practice. Books can mostly just bring you knowledge. You have to take action and translate that knowledge into results and understanding. BOOM BAM!
5. Take care of this moment.
“BE ACCEPTING OF THE PRESENT MOMENT”
6. Everyone is human.
We are all human and prone to make mistakes. Holding people to unreasonable standards will only create more unnecessary conflicts in your world and negativity within you.
“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”
Be persistent. Find what you really like to do. Then you’ll find the inner motivation to keep going, going and going.
8. See the good in people and help them.
There is always something good in people.
9. Be congruent, be authentic, be your true self.
When words and thoughts are aligned then that shows through in your communication. Because now you have your voice tonality and body language – some say they are over 90 percent of communication – in alignment with your words.
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.”
