“I Think Peace is one of the greatest qualities a human being can possess. To have peace in there heart and peace in there life” -Paul Tsika
Purpose in your life!
There are so many people in our generation looking for peace. They want peace in there hearts, and they want peace in there mind. And I feel like the reason why some people don’t have peace in there life is because they don’t have a sense of purpose, a sense of purpose greater then themselves, a sense of destiny.. See as human beings if we have no sense of value in who we are and what we’re doing.. There will be no peace. If you’re not adding value to other people, motivating other people, serving other people. and only thinking inwards. only trying to bring value to yourself. You will never have peace. If you take someone who has a purpose, and passion to pursue that purpose in there life, they will have peace. If you don’t have peace in your life today I think it might be because you haven’t settled into your purpose yet. Here’s some tips that can help bring peace to your life.
“If you don’t have peace, it isn’t because someone took it from you; you gave it away. You cannot always control what happens to you, but you can control what happens in you.” -John C. Maxwell
Six Habits to Bring Peace to your Life!
First habit. you need to fill your Life, Mind, Time, and Attention with thoughts of peace, positive things.
Some computer terminology I like to use for this is, “garbage in, garbage out”. If you put Garbage into your life, you’re going to get Garbage out of your life. If you put the Right things into your life, you will get the Right things out of your life. If you’re putting garbage into your life: By what you read, what you watch on TV, the things you eat, the people you associate with.. Then all that is going to come out of your life is negative and Garbage. But if you are filling your Life, Mind, Time, and Attention, on the right relationships, motivational books and speakers, going to the Gym, If you’re filling your life with these positive things… Positive things will come out of your life!
Second habit. Never try to get even with your enemies.
Now you may say, “but Konnor, man I don’t have any enemies?”. And I will say to you “take a look around, hahaha.” We all have enemies, people who want to rob us of are purpose in life, that try to keep us from reaching are full potential. There will be people in the room that appear to be negative, when we are positive around them.. If someone hurts you, don’t try to hurt them back. If someone offends you, don’t try to offend them. You can NEVER maintain peace in your life trying to strike back at someone for something they did or said.
Third habit. Count your blessings, Not your challenges.
I feel like this is a very powerful one because, everyone has challenges in there lives, everyone. If you start concentrating on your troubles and negatives in your life, soon your peace will begin to fade.. But if you wake up every morning and consciously count each of your blessings. I promise it will fill your heart with the greatest sense of peace and joy then you can ever imagine. And I will tell you why. No matter what you are going through in life. The blessings bestowed upon each and every one of us, far outweigh any challenge and any obstacle. Try and focus on the positive things not the negative things.
Fourth habit. Don’t try to imitate others, don’t try to be just like someone else.
I’m not saying its a bad thing to admire our leaders, and to admire those that are successful, and want to be like them and duplicate them in certain ways.. But don’t try in personality to be just like them. Be who YOU are, don’t try to imitate others. Because in the end, people are attracted to authenticity. And there’s peace in knowing the authentic YOU, is the only YOU, anyone wants to see. So be you, people love you.
Fifth habit. Profit from your loses, Learn from your mistakes.
Admit to your shortcomings! Admit to your mistakes! Be quick to say sorry! Be quick to Change! Don’t try to justify and rationalize with your wrong decisions, I promise it will bring nothing but confusion and heartache. But if your quick to apologize, admit to your short comings, and make the necessary changes, peace will continue to flow in your heart and life. Learn from your mistakes, The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results. Mistakes are valuable, they are what make us who we are.. But not from the mistakes that we make, No. But how we handle are mistakes, truly shows who we are. You can learn, develop yourself as a person, and achieve peace. or you can repeat your mistakes, never grow, and ultimately never achieve true peace.
Sixth habit. Create Happiness for others.
When you live your life out every day, are you attempting to create happiness in others lives? It may be in small insignificant ways. Holding the door open for somebody at the gas station. Picking up a dollar that fell out of someones pocket and giving it back to them. They can be the smallest of things, that can make the biggest of differences. Creating happiness in lives of those around you will create peace, and happiness in your heart.
