“Wishing you Peace”

    Wishing You Peace

    Over the years I’ve discovered that we can experience peace through our beliefs, thoughts, and actions.  We don’t have to wait for others to deliver something to us.  We can take charge of our own peace status.  That’s a liberating, powerful concept—one I didn’t grasp when I was young.

     

    So what beliefs can give you peace?  Try these for starters:

    Believe that you are resilient no matter what’s happening around you.

    Believe that you can make a positive impact upon your environment.

    Believe that you can add value in every situation.

    Believe that you are smart enough, talented enough, and experienced enough.

    Believe that you are worthy of success as you define it.

     

    What thoughts can give you peace?  Consider the following:

    Think that you can perform your duties with ease.

    Think that most folks want to support you.

    Think that you can deal with change, large or small.

    Think that you are making a difference for somebody else every day.

    Think that you can accomplish anything you decide to do.

     

    What actions can give you peace?  Here are just a few:

    Initiate a difficult but necessary conversation that you’ve avoided.

    Learn the new skill you know you need.

    Employ a win-win approach during interactions with bosses, peers, and staff.

    Tell people they’ve done a great job—when they have.

    Start a job search that’s been long overdue.

     

    You don’t need to wait for peace.  You can enjoy it NOW.  In this very moment.  Choose one idea from each of the three categories above.  Claim it and practice it.  Live it regularly, and watch your entire life shift.  I promise.
