Difficulties give us an opportunity to exercise focus and determination. During trying times, we concentrate on maintaining a calm mind. This approach helps to conquer the challenges that face us.
We avoid being reactive to difficult situations that catch us off guard. While it is easy to allow confrontation to anger us, we can choose to take the higher road.
We can spend a lot of time on nurturing our mind and spirit. Train yourself to keep calm when that is the least natural approach. It forces you to develop the will to overcome the toughest situations.
When we encounter resistance, our first step is to silence our soul. Ignore the stirrings of impatience and anger that pull at you. Block them out completely.
You can realize that giving in to negativity only serves to worsen any situation. Your focus is on overcoming the challenge at hand by counteracting negativity with positivity and peace.
Your wisdom in handling trying times encourages you to act from a place of calm reasoning. When my soul is calm, I am able to think things through. By rejecting unease at my core, I am able to make smart choices that produce finer results.
Today, you are a conqueror. You can overcome any obstacle.
With serenity, you can see the value in all of life experiences. Even obstacles become worthwhile and meaningful when seen in this light.
