A LITTLE PIECE OF PEACE
Today’s “Triple P” post or positive post for the posse is about A LITTLE PIECE OF PEACE.
I ain’t gonna lie, some people get on my nerves. They whine and complain about everything and everybody. The older I get, the more patient I have become in terms of listening to others, even if they have nothing to say. Everybody deserves a second chance, and I think to myself, who am I to judge them.
On the other hand, some people just never seem to get their act together. They have every opportunity in this country to manifest their greatness, but insist on doing things that cause them pain, suffering, and sorrow.
Here are a few things you may want to consider to avoid a lackluster life filled with despair.
1). BLAME. The first step to admitting you have a problem, is to realize the problem in the first place. I’ve made it a part of my daily habits to take full responsibility for my time, energy, and effort’s as it relates to whatever I’m working on or dealing with. When something goes wrong, I don’t run for the hills and point fingers at other people, I take responsibility for my actions. By doing this, I learn from my own mistakes, misjudgments, and bad decisions.
2). DISCERNMENT. To be successful in life, the spirit of discernment is critical. Being able to distinguish friend from foe is essential for successful living. In life you will come across all kinds of people trying to seek favor and gain things from you. Trust your instincts and only deal with those who have your best interest in mind.
3). INTESTINAL FORTITUDE. I’ve had times in my life where I felt like just giving up and not deal with certain people. However, the older I get, the more I realize you’re going to be forced to deal with all kinds of people and sometimes may not have a choice. This is where I learned to develop the habit of presence of mind, learning to deal with people where they are as opposed to where I think they should be. This growth and maturity has allowed me to see people from a different perspective. Strengthen your mind and you will strengthen your relationships.
TAKEAWAY: Life can sometimes be a little tricky to navigate. In fact, because it doesn’t come with instructions, you have to assemble it yourself. Mentors help, but ultimately it’s your call. It’s up to you. By not blaming others, and developing a keen spirit of discernment, you can avoid a lot of drama and confusion in your life. This will strengthen your intestinal fortitude and make you a stronger person. Fight hard for peace of mind and never settle for less than who you are and can become.
