Stop Giving Away Your Peace
So today I want to talk to you guys about something that is really important for all of us to be mentally healthy and on top of our game. If we want to be able to help others then we first have to learn to help ourselves. Now, to be clear I am not saying that you need to go around and act a fool, doing everything you want to do and just be selfish all of the time. What I am saying is that you need to do what is good and healthy for you so you can be at your best and be able to help others in your life. Because you won’t be very good or helpful to anybody if you are falling apart because you do not know how to take care of yourself.
So I know you have heard me talk about this before if you have listened to any amount of my talks because I drill in this point over and over and over again: Protect Your Peace. Your peace is something you will never experience if you keep letting the things that you can’t control control you. Inner peace is what we all seek. We all seek calm in the midst of chaos. Clarity in the midst of confusion. Focus in the midst of frustration. I want you to understand this: Peace is not the absence of problems. It is instead the presence of purpose. I have a question for you. Would you rather be at peace with yourself and at war with the world, or would you rather be at peace with the world and at war with yourself? You see peace does not mean that the world around you is silenced. It means that the world around you and the problems around you do not become you. Inner peace is about disconnecting from the world so you can reconnect to your soul. Let me say that again. It is about disconnecting yourself from the world so that you can begin to reconnect with your soul. Inner peace is all about letting go. Letting go of what people think about you. Letting go of trying to be everything to everyone and just being yourself. Inner peace is about beginning to accept what is. Inner peace is about knowing that the path might not be perfect but the purpose of the path is.
It is important to realize that everything that happens to you is just preparing you for what is to come. It is preparing you for everything you hoped for, wished for, prayed for. Inner peace is about accepting what happens to you and seeing it as something that is there to serve you instead of there to hurt you. When you keep the perspective of victimhood then you let it corrupt you and you give away your peace. Stop giving away your peace and change your perspective when bad things happen.
It all starts with you.
