Practice peace

A peaceful response is a powerful response. Before you speak, before you act, before you respond, consider a calm and peaceful way to do so.

There is almost always a way to say what you have to say in a peaceful, compelling manner. And when you do, you have a much better chance of being heard and understood.

Whatever you have to accomplish, seek a way to get it done peacefully and respectfully. By so doing, you’ll pave the way for even greater accomplishments.

When you live and think and act peacefully, you’ll find a world of people eager to support your efforts. When your life is filled with peaceful moments, your mind is much more positively focused and your work is much more effective.

Every day you’ll come across situations where you can add real value by introducing a calm and peaceful tone. Even a small bit of peacefulness has the power to profoundly change things for the better.

Let yourself be strong enough and confident enough to practice peace on a daily basis. You’ll quickly make your world a better place.
