Gandhi Jayanti is observed on 2nd October every year. Gandhi Jayanti this year will fall on Sunday, 2 October. The day is marked as the birth anniversary of freedom fighter and Father of the Nation, Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi. Gandhiji is famous for dedicating his whole life to the betterment of the country of India. He played a key role in getting freedom for our country from British colonial rule.
Bapu is what people fondly used to call or address him as. The day is a chance for people to learn his life lessons and also walk on the path of his teachings that majorly revolved around selfless service and non-violence. Here are some of the inspiring quotes of Mahatma Gandhiji that you can read and implement in your life for success.
Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.
When it comes to living our professional life, we set 5-year goals, 10 years goals, and all retirement plans. However, in this quote, Gandhiji mentions that instead of living for the future, you live your present life, enjoy it to the fullest and think as if you won’t be alive tomorrow. But when it comes to learning, one must be a lifelong learner and be willing to read and know new things that keep happening in one’s life. This is the key to success in your profession and career.
You must be the change you wish to see in the world.
This quote tells one to bring about a change in their career and profession in such a way that it brings about a transformation in the world. People who are successful and recognized are the ones who wanted to see a change in the world and that’s why they came up with business ideas, products, and services that would provide more comfort and convenience to others. The world is evolving with new trends and the latest things because there are people out there who are working smartly to bring about this change.
Nobody can hurt me without my permission.
This quote by Mahatma Gandhi can be practiced even in today’s times. When one thinks out of the box or achieves success in his life, he is usually mocked by others or criticized so that his emotional wellness goes down. It is true that talented people in the country face a lot of challenges to grab that big opportunity in their life. Bapuji through this quote says that how no one can hurt you without your consent. Like if you don’t pay heed to what others are saying and downgrading you, you will not feel hurt and stay more focused on your goals.
The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.
This quote by Bapuji gives clarity on how you can come up with your own career options by serving others. Say, for example, if you love teaching a subject, how about enrolling yourself in social causes, you will feel good and also get the confidence of teaching poor and needy kids. This experience will help you in your teaching career, which can be as a business or a full-time job opportunity.
