Peace Is Something You Do For Yourself

“Peace is not something you wish for; it is something you make, something you do, something you are, and something you give away.”– Robert Fulghum

If you want to connect with your REAL life, your inner self, your inner voice, you need to nurture your mind. When you nurture your mind, your mind will nurture you. You can’t be productive if you don’t have a healthy mind.

A peaceful life is a life with problems. No one can live a peaceful life without a problem. If you want peace, fight for it. It is your responsibility to make peace with yourself. Anthony de Mello said, “If it is peace you want, seek to change yourself, not other people.” If you can’t make peace with yourself, you can’t make peace with other people. Because a peaceful life starts with you.

If you are not at peace with yourself, check your thoughts. Are you thinking the right thoughts? Are you doing the right things? Are your words positive? Because you can’t be at peace with yourself if your words are negative. You can’t be at peace with yourself if your actions are negative. You can’t be at peace with yourself if you occupy your mind with negative thoughts.

If you want to be at peace with yourself, make peace with your mind.

There Is No Growth Without Pain

“We grow the most as human beings during our toughest times.”

Robin Sharma

Growth comes with pain. Without pain, without change, there is no growth. If you want to grow, you must be ready to endure the impossible. There is no growth without pain. There is no growth without doing something that will make you really uncomfortable. Growth is scary. We fear growth. We fear growth because we don’t want to fail. But if you don’t change, if you don’t have the courage to face your fears, how can you grow?

“This, too, shall pass.”

Eppie Lederer

We don’t like change. We don’t like to change our old ways of doing things. Believe me, my friend, if you want to develop a new habit, you must let go of your old ways of doing things. You must allow yourself to be vulnerable. Remember that the pain that comes with change is not permanent; it is a temporary one.

According to Eppie Lederer, “Expect trouble as an inevitable part of life and repeat to yourself, the most comforting words of all; this, too, shall pass.” Yes, this, too, shall pass. Nothing is permanent in life. Know that we can’t go anywhere without change. Yes, it comes with pain. But if you don’t persevere, what do you think will happen to your future? The future that you are fighting for starts today. If you are scared of change, you will miss your future. Do you want to miss your future?
