Inner-peace refers to a state of being mentally and spiritually at peace, with enough knowledge and understanding to keep oneself strong in the face of discord or stress.
Being “at peace” is considered by many to be healthy and the opposite of being stressed or anxious. [Wikipedia]
“The life of inner peace, being harmonious and without stress, is the easiest type of existence.”–Norman Vincent Peale
“My faith helps me understand that circumstances don’t dictate my happiness, my inner peace.”–Denzel Washington
“Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset.”–Saint Frances de Sales
One of the first steps in finding inner-peace is to think carefully about your goals. What are you trying to achieve, and what are you doing that will take you there?
Can you realistically reach your goals, or are you setting goals that are far beyond your reach? Do you even have any goals?
By putting your priorities in order, you will be on the path to inner peace because only chaos can result from clutter and disorganization of the mind. You can begin by setting small goals which can be easily achieved. Then, instead of focusing on failure, you will be able to see the good job you’ve done in reaching your goal.
If you fail to reach a goal, use this situation to learn how to do better next time. Don’t wallow in your failure use it as a stepping stone to achieving success.
“Never continue in a job you don’t enjoy. If you’re happy in what you’re doing, you’ll like yourself, you’ll have inner peace. And if you have that, along with physical health, you will have had more success than you could possibly have imagined.”–Johnny Carson
When you feel good about yourself, you will have an easier time finding peace of mind. Peace is essential for happiness. If you constantly feel sad, you are living under a great weight that brings you down to a point where you could sink into a permanent state of self-pity.
Self-pity only encourages negative thinking. Remember, you are not the only person facing rejection or hurt in life. There are other people much worse off than you are.
People with negative thinking miss out on inner peace because they let every little setback throw them off track. They criticize themselves for no real reason and go down a road that only leads to misery.
“Chaotic people often have chaotic lives, and I think they create that. But if you try and have an inner peace and a positive attitude, I think you attract that.”–Imelda Staunton
"Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world gives, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."--John 14:27
There are people who have pessimistic attitudes who tend to go through their lives fighting their thoughts and emotions every day. If they are rejected for a job position, they take it personally and feel that they are not good enough to have any job.
Pessimist can also start to think that everyone believes they are stupid, and the cycle of pessimism traps them into psychological immobility, not realizing that everyone experiences rejection at some time during their lives, but when your mind focuses on the negative aspects of a situation, it is hard to find inner peace.
At times, hearing the word ‘no’ is a good thing. Even if you’ve lost out on a job, maybe that was for the best.
We need to learn to turn our rejections into positive actions. Taking action can lead you to inner-peace because activity makes you feel more positive about a situation.
Positive attitudes result in peaceful states of mind. You can train your mind to think more positively. It will take work and effort, but be assured this will lead you to inner peace, and this will be worthwhile.
