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.

Always Fight For What Is Right

Whether you are alone or not, 
whether you are with people or not,
whether you know what you are doing or not,
whether you know why you are even doing it or not,
always fight for what is right.

Why? 
We are human beings. We are connected,
whether we know it or not.
We need other people to succeed in life.
And other people need us to succeed in life.

It is not easy to stand alone. It takes courage to do 
brave things alone.
 But sometimes it is better to start it alone.
Because you don't need other people to start something,
but you need other people to finish it.

Remember, what is good for you is good for other people.
If you see something that you don't like, speak up.
If you are not okay with something, then other people 
are not going to be okay with it.

If you do not stop injustice, it will continue.
If you do not want to see injustice, then fight for what is right.
If it is right for you, it is right for other people.
