In western society a belief exists that ‘achievement’ and ‘stress’ go hand in hand. There’s almost an unwritten rule that if you look too calm and peaceful, then you’re clearly not working hard enough.

What I love about Mahatma Gandhi is that he proved it’s possible to remain gentle in spirit, yet command an enormous amount of strength and respect at the same time.

In a world where authority is revered over genuine leadership, I believe we can learn a lot from the man who fought for a nation with his mind alone.

Gandhi’s philosophy was not theoretical but one of pragmatism, that is, practicing his principles in real time. Asked to give a message to the people, he would respond, “My life is my message.”

I hope you take something from one of the 12 Gandhi quotes below, maybe even a sense of liberation from the idea that ‘it is possible to be a gentle and relaxed Superachiever.’
