Thought for the Day ~ By Lisa Scott Life Coach

Stillness and peace……….we need to experience them every day. Most of us can find peace at the shore of a beautiful lake, in a tranquil garden, the real goal is to achieve peace even when you find yourself amidst chaos.  So many of us make material wealth the measure of our self worth……and if we are not careful the things we work to achieve enslave us. 

Philosopher’s have said , “success is not having much but wanting little.” While there is nothing wrong with the pursuit of material wealth, it is important to remember that there are some things equally important, fulfilling and more lasting. 

Pursuit of these things often brings us an experience of peace and stillness that money cannot buy.  Material wealth serves you in this lifetime….and finding peace, and bringing  goodness to your family, your friends, and your co-workers leaves a legacy that is created by the way you live your life. Ultimately through finding a moment of stillness we balance ourselves, it brings peace to our life experience.  We gain character as we lose our ego…….and when you realize that you can approach things through love, peace is the result.

Dr Wayne Dyer said ” There’s a rhythm to the universe.  When we’re able to get quiet enough, we experience how we’re part of that perfect rhythm. When you get enough inner peace and feel really positive about yourself, it’s almost impossible for you to be controlled and manipulated by anyone else.  Happiness and success are inner processes that we bring to life’s undertakings, rather than something we get from….. out there.”
