In today’s hectic world of cell phones, emails, and the internet, finding time for inner peace seems to be put on the back burner. Gone are the days with quiet, or so it seems.
You are taking time to create inner peace in your environment to help considerably in your quest both for relaxation and personal growth. Many people are terrified of developing peace within themselves because of the thoughts that may come to the surface.
Taking time for inner peace and reflection gives you time to discover where there are lack and unhappiness in your life. When you find out where this lack and dissatisfaction exist, you can take steps to change it.
When I worked at a corporate job, for instance, it was when I forced myself to spend time in a quiet room when I finally realized most of what I was doing in my job, emails, phone calls, paperwork, appointments, and so forth was all a distraction. It turned out I did not believe that I could live the life I truly desired. The life of my dreams, it turned out, was right around the corner. I merely had to step into it.
Here are a few tips on how to turn your chaos around:
1. Take a break from your routine in a quiet nature setting. Turn off the cell phone, don’t check the emails or voicemails, and spend time thinking about your life. What is making you happy and what is giving you trouble. Look at your life as if you were an outside observer, what would you say to this person you are.
2. Use Pareto’s Principle. Pareto’s principle states that 80% of your chaos comes from 20% of your actions. What are these actions or situations or people who are causing you problems? In reverse, what 20% of your activities are giving you the most peace and happiness?
3. You are what you think. A hallmark of all successful, happy people is the belief “the universe is conspiring to help me.” You can replace the universe with whatever makes you comfortable. The principle is the same, asking yourself, especially amid chaotic circumstances, “How is the universe conspiring to help me?” will steer your thoughts towards the positive.
Stress will always exist in your life. There is good stress, known as eustress and negative stress. By taking the time for introspection and finding peace within the chaos of your life, you allow your real journey to be revealed to you.
