There's good news... A peaceful mind can be achieved with very little effort.
As you struggle to live a life where you enjoy inner peace, I'd like to offer a few words of encouragement.
While I can think of many ideas on how to achieve your goal, let me focus today on one way that I believe can help you best.
A practical inner peace idea, in fact...
In my own life, one of the biggest obstacles is simply making choices that result in constant unenjoyable activities.
More to the point, not identifying a way to earn your living in something you enjoy will do wonders to impede your inner peace ;-)
Half the battle in achieving a peaceful mind is the ability to wake up each day of your life anticipating the day!
Let's take a serious look at this idea.
Pretty revolutionary, huh?
How long now have you trudged through your days just going through the motions?
How much longer are you going to deny yourself a peaceful life... a happy life?
Somewhere on my site, I've described my trek to Los Angeles at age 22 in search of a rock-n-roll career.
So it should come as no surprise regarding my interest a few years ago when the now defunct Rockstar show detailed a band called Supernova and their search for a singer.
A girl who got booted off the show one night said something in her farewell speech that got me thinking...
She said one thing she learned during her time in the competition is that all her life she's played it safe.
She described how she now was going to take more chances in her life in order to attain her dreams.
Have you been living like this? Have you always seeked out the safe job or the safe friends?
How many times have you gone out on a limb and taken a chance on maybe achieving a dream of yours?
Once? Twice? Never?
More than likely, if you're like most people, you've always held back, never quite going for it.
What does this have to do with a peaceful mind or living a peaceful life?
Well, in my opinion, if you can live each day doing something you absolutely enjoy doing, you'll just naturally happy.
You'll feel inner peace because you're filled with joy in every moment.
The opposite of a peaceful mind is the one filled with anguish and bitterness from settling for some job or career that you just fell into.
You continue a life of day-to-day drudgery because you never fulfilled that youthful desire for whatever it is you dreamt about doing as a child.
Maybe you made one excuse after another about how you'd get after that dream someday.
Isn't it funny how someday is always someday until you turn it into today?
Don't feel bad about your frustrations in achieving inner peace and a life of abundance. The past means nothing if you make a conscious effort to change your present.
Start doing today what will lead you toward achieving your dreams and inner peace will just naturally be in your future.
Actually, you'll feel inner peace immediately because just working on your dreams fills you with joy and happiness.
"So many of our dreams at first seem impossible, then
they seem improbable, and then when we summon
the will, they soon become inevitable."
