To Be Effective In The World, You Have To …

According to John Addison, "To be effective in the world, 
you have to carry within a core of untroubled calm, 
a sense of inner peace that is content in who you are,
with all your best intentions and all your imperfections. 
When you maintain that peaceful core within you, 
you can weather whatever storms are happening on the outside."

We all need peace in our lives. When we have peace within, 
then we can really, truly function on the outside.
Without peace, there can be no growth.
You can't think. You can't plan. You can't do.
And when you can't live a normal life, 
it is impossible to go for an extraordinary life.

To carry peace within you, you must pay attention to your thoughts.
Do peaceful things. Do small thing in a peaceful way.
Hang out with peaceful people. Read peaceful things.
And make sure that your mind is filled with peaceful thoughts.
Why? Because peaceful things come from peaceful thoughts.
