Inner Peace = World Peace.

Think about it. If we all just focused on achieving inner peace, wouldn’t world peace be a byproduct? Inner peace can be found by following your passion. Your passion is built-in and it is your job to excavate it. You have a purpose that no one else can fulfill. Your purpose can be found by following your passion. It is a burning desire to do that which brings you bliss.

Follow your passion with unshakable relentless persistence. Don’t let temporary setbacks make you feel like a failure. Each setback is a lesson and a stepping stone on the pathway to your dreams. Each stepping stone will bring you closer to your purpose.

Maintain your focus on what you want and take the next step. Don’t ignore your passion; it will keep nagging at you and you won’t be fulfilled until you fully cultivate it. Don’t worry about what other people are doing because you are meant to do that which brings you bliss.

Don’t waste your energy on other people’s success and failure. Your success doesn’t depend on their failure. While you can’t ignore your passion, at the same time, you can’t ignore your pain….Continue reading at

follow your passion...attain your, if one does not attain their passion is a failure? anyone ever hear the expression "bloom where you are planted"??

There used to be a bumper sticker many years ago that said "Peace on Earth Begins Within". Wouldn't it be a much nicer world if everyone lived by the tenants of " Ahimsa", or "to do no harm"?

Thank you. I agree with Charlotte A.

For shame we are not as evolved yet that every one of us has inner guidance and wisdom to follow their passion, but I strongly believe if that would be the case and everyone would be happy and content in their life - the world peace would be by product.

That really makes a lot of sense. It also automatically eliminates a lot of the resistance that erupts for many persons who're encouraged to love self first, or take care of self first. Who really would argue against attaining inner peace?

Which is why I always try to evaluate people on what they do and not how they appear.
