Take time to focus on the peaceful times that come to us.
In the quiet and stillness of each day is another opportunity to experience life’s peace.
The workplace becomes a war room where daily battles are won or lost planning the hours, days, months and years to come.
My workplace is in the niche emergency dental care where war is waged upon tooth decay and the gum disease process gingivitis.
Chaos and turmoil must be handled to bring about a peaceful environment in a dental office.
Our ability to handle chaos and confusion bring our dental team peace.
What brings you peace in your workplace?
Outside the workplace however, we live in a time where there are wars and rumors of wars.
Sun Tzu states in his book, “.The Art Of War”, According as circumstances are favorable, one should modify one’s plans.
Those who understand warfare fight their battles after the war has already been won.
“All warfare is based on deception. Hence when able to attack we must seem unable. When using our forces we must seem inactive. When we are near we make the enemy believe we are far away. When far away we must make the enemy believe we are near.”
Peaceful times call for an understanding of war to maintain peace.
Know the pillars that support a high degree of peace in one’s life.
*The pillars exist as readiness to wage war when threatened or attacked.
Peace is a state of completeness supported by pillars and not necessarily the absence of war.
*Prosperity is a pillar of peace.
Claiming your destiny says to the world, “I can be prosperous in spite of the best or worst of times.”
*Safety and a sense of well being exist as another pillar of peace.
You bring peace into the lives of those around you when able to provide safety and a sense of well being.
*Optimal health and strength are another pillar of peace.
Attention to details helps in bringing about optimal health and strength.
Certainty you have done all that is necessary to achieve a high level of health supports this pillar.
Peaceful times are within your grasp in spite of chaos and adversity.
