I often look to Mahatma Gandhi for wisdom. His gentle approach to life is testament to the fact that strength does not equal physical capacity.

In the western world, we're taught that to be strong, we must be ferocious in attitude and vehemently go after what we want in life.

I believe this approach is flawed. And I think Mahatma Gandhi would agree with me.

His life story has proven that it’s possible to remain gentle in spirit, yet simultaneously command a huge amount of strength and respect.

He says:
“In a gentle way, you can shake the world.”

In a world in which authority is valued over authentic leadership, I believe we have a lot to learn from the man who fought for a nation with his mind alone.

Gandhi’s philosophy was not purely based on theory; instead he lived by rules of pragmatism. He practiced what he preached every day of his life.

What an inspiring, authentic way to live!
