Four Reminders that Will Make Calmness Your Superpower
1. If you don’t like someone’s behavior, stay away, but don’t hurt them. Don’t be abusive and disrespectful. That’s a sign of weakness. In fact, the real test always comes when you don’t get what you expect from people. Will you react in anger? Or will calmness continue to be your superpower?
2. Don’t lower your standards, but do know that removing your expectations of others is the best way to avoid being disappointed by them. You will end up sadly disappointed if you expect people will always do for you as you do for them. Remember, not everyone has the same heart as you.
3. People are much nicer when they’re at peace and happier, which says a lot about people who aren’t very nice to you. Wish them well, and be on your way.
4. You won’t always be a priority to others, and that’s why you need to be a priority to yourself. Learn to respect yourself, take care of yourself, and become your own support system. Your needs matter. Start meeting them. Don’t wait on others to choose you. Choose yourself, today! START making your happiness a priority!
Your ultimate goal is to grow so strong on the inside that almost nothing on the outside can affect your inner peace of mind without your conscious permission...
Because the bottom line is, despite the real world challenges you face, the biggest and most complex obstacle you will have to personally overcome on a daily basis is your own mind.
In other words, you aren't responsible for everything that happens to you in life, but you ARE responsible for undoing the self-defeating thinking patterns that these undesirable experiences create.
