Why the World Needs Your Peace
Stop losing yourself.
Lately, I've been doing my best to take time to disconnect. There's nothing wrong with pleasing people, but often, we find ourselves living our lives with the sole purpose of making other people happy. Let me tell you something—pleasing people shouldn't come at the expense of losing yourself. If you've been following me for a while, you know at least one thing about me—I'm big on peace. That's really all I seem to talk about, but that's for good reason. I think that we all seek peace in different ways, via relationships or jobs or opportunities.
We all seek peace indirectly, but I think it's high time many of us began to seek peace explicitly.
The people around you—your family and friends—are directly influenced by your attitude. One of the reasons cultivating peace in your own life is so important is because your disposition is contagious. As you become better, your friends and family will become better. As you find more peace, your environment will be healthier and more peaceful, which will ultimately result in a better world. When it comes to finding peace, I think one of the best places to start is dropping dead weight. In life, many of us are carrying things we shouldn't be. We carry negativity, fear, and doubt everywhere we go; and as a result, we have less room for the good things in life.
We all go through struggle, and no one is exempt from pain. That being said, I believe it is a human duty to spread the best parts of ourselves rather than the worst. Let me ask you something—what are you bringing to the table? How are you helping your friends? How are you strengthening your relationships and spreading positivity? When I was growing up, I never wanted to be a speaker. Since then, I've been blessed enough to travel the world and learn so much about other cultures. Over time, I've realized how many limitations I was putting on myself. My first time out of the country was Sweden, and in Sweden, I realized how much I was holding myself back. I realized how toxic my mindset was, and that experience has made me a changed man ever since.
If you can open up your mind, anything is possible. If you can realize how much you've been limiting yourself, you will see how much room you have to grow. It's time for you to lose the shackles you've trapped yourself with, because even if you don't believe in yourself, someone out there does. You have a unique and powerful impact to make on the world, so stop robbing the world of your greatness!
It all starts with you.
