You can live a peaceful life.The question is, “Are you living it?” You can live it. A peaceful life is not a life without problems; it is a life with manageable problems.
What are you thinking about? It is good to think, but what are you really thinking about? Are you thinking about your life, your job, your relationships, your past failures, your past mistakes, or your past successes? We are always thinking, knowingly or unknowingly. But what we think about matters. It matters a lot.
Positive people are always moving forward, no matter what. They don’t have time to waste on negative things, on negative people. They spend their time on positive things. They know how to manage negative situations. They don’t see challenges as problems, they see them as opportunities to move forward in their lives.
Your story matters. But the real question is, “Who is telling your story? What are you telling yourself? What are you believing about yourself? What are you telling the people around you- your friends, your relatives, your coworkers, your managers or bosses? What are you believing about your life? What?
If we want to move forward in our lives, we must learn to embrace our problems. We must learn to embrace walls, obstacles, failures, disappointments, mistakes. If you embrace them, you will learn more about them. You will learn more about yourself- your strengths and weaknesses. You will learn more about the things that you thought you know. You also will learn more about the things that you do not know.
“You must be careful what you notice, talk about, or give your attention to, because that is what you are identifying with, and that is what you will bring into your life.”- Catherine Ponder
It is good to think about what we want to do. It is okay to think about how we will get things done. But if no actions are taken, nothing will get done
What do you think about yourself? Do you believe in yourself? Do you trust yourself? Do you often criticize yourself? It is okay to do these things. We are human. But it is not okay to allow them to control your life.
