“How long are you going to wait before you demand the best for yourself.”- Epictetus
We are very good at taking care of other people. When it comes to ourselves, we are terrible at it. We ignore our needs. We have needs. Yes, lots of them.
We have needs. Demand the best for yourself. Take care of your physical health. Take care of your spiritual health. Take care of your financial health. Take care of your social health. Take care of your psychological health. If you are not healthy, you cannot take care of anybody. Take care of yourself so that you can take care of people. For example, if the doctor is unhealthy, patients will get sicker. If you don’t want to get sicker, take care of yourself.
Peace comes from within, not from outside. Peace comes from what you feel inside of you, not from what you have. It doesn’t come from material possessions. You can be peaceful with yourself without any expensive material possessions.
“Peace comes from within, do not seek it without.”— Buddha
If you want to live a peaceful and productive life, you have to select your actions. Don’t find peace from your friends, you will be disappointed. Look for peace within you, and you will find it.
You can find peace through:
Your values and beliefs
Your thoughts. Fill your mind with positive thoughts.
Peace is inside you, not outside. Look inside, not outside, and you will find peace.
