Challenge Your Passion to Find Peace of Mind

“Success is peace of mind which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing
you did your best to become the best you are capable of becoming.” ~ John Wooden

Challenge Your Passion…

The Key to Peace Of Mind
Now On Sale

Cambridge dictionary defines peace of mind as, “A feeling of calm or not being worried.”

From the Urban dictionary, peace of mind means, “To be free of worries.”

The meaning of peace of mind from the online Thesaurus is, “the absence of mental stress or anxiety.”

Other Meanings and Definitions of Peace of Mind…

1. It means that you have a peaceful mind that is not agitated and disturbed by what people say or do.

2. It means not taking things too personally.

3. It means having control of your thoughts, and the ability to decide what thoughts to let into your mind and which ones to reject.

4. You can have peace of mind when you have no worries, no fears, and when nothing is troubling your mind.

5. You enjoy peace of mind when you are happy.

6. You enjoy peace of mind when you are relaxed.

7. When your relationships are in harmony, there is peace of mind

8. Eliminating stress from your life makes your mind peaceful and calm.

Most of these definitions suggest peace of mind is the equivalent to being at rest, calm or lack of engagement.

We would suggest the opposite.

Peace of mind is much like happiness and can only be found in the active pursuit of excellence.

Happiness and peace of mind are the results of becoming the best you possible.

It’s more of a knowing rather than a feeling.

You will find true happiness when your skills are up to the challenges at hand and you find yourself in the “flow”… that state called the optimal psychological experience.

Likewise, you will find yourself at peace — regardless of your circumstances — when you have done your absolute best… and you know it.

This requires passion as the energy driving your performance.

I know this seems counter-intuitive to many.

Most people believe that a restful mind, free from conflict, is the source of inner peace.

Maybe you love an hour of calm… meditation… or prayer to cleanse your mind and your spirit.

Peace? Maybe.

A cleansed mind and spirit might give you peace of mind. For awhile.

But, in all cases, when you know you have faced your circumstances and have done everything in your power to achieve a positive result, you will look back in gratitude and peace.

It might take years for you to recognize this. To truly KNOW it.

But until you do, you will never find the inner peace you desire.

The passionate pursuit of your dreams leads to peace of mind…

In the heat of the battle, you will rarely find peace of mind. You will be restless, drained, maybe pessimistic, or feel a sense of hopelessness.

But permit your passion to see you through to completion, you will have the peace that comes from knowing you have lived your passion and did your very best.

If you do your best, what more is there?
