This is something you need to read or listen to
For the next 50 years of your life
So get comfortable
It was written quite some time ago
And here it is:
“Calmness is the rarest quality in human life.
It is the poise of a great nature, in harmony with itself and its ideals.
It is the moral atmosphere of a life self-centred, self-reliant, and self-
Calmness is singleness of purpose, absolute confidence, and conscious power, —
ready to be focused in an instant to meet any crisis.
The Sphinx is not a true type of calmness, — petrifaction is not calmness; it is death, the
silencing of all the energies; while no one lives his life more fully, more intensely and more
consciously than the man who is calm.
The Fatalist is not calm. He is the coward slave of his environment, hopelessly surrendering
to his present condition, recklessly indifferent to his future. He accepts his life as a
rudderless ship, drifting on the ocean of time. He has no compass, no chart, no known port
to which he is sailing. His self-confessed inferiority to all nature is shown in his existence of
constant surrender. It is not, — calmness.
The man -who is calm has his course in life clearly marked on his chart. His hand is ever on
the helm. Storm, fog, night, tempest, danger, hidden reefs, — he is ever prepared and ready
for them. He is made calm and serene by the realization that in these crises of his voyage he
needs a clear mind and a cool head; that he has naught to do but to do each day the best he
can by the light he has; that he will never flinch nor falter for a moment; that, though he
may have to tack and leave his course for a time, he will never drift, he will get back into the
true channel, he will keep ever headed toward his harbor. When he will reach it, how he will
reach it, matters not to him. He rests in calmness, knowing he has done his best. “
When the worries of the day throw you off course,
And you get so affected
Rest for a moment
And let calmness and peace
When irritability comes knocking
Don’t let it win and confirm your inferiority
No person in the world never got anything good,
Out of attempting to harm another
They say the best revenge
Is massive success
The best quality you can possess is Calmness
In a world of stress and panic everywhere
Go over that message every morning,
And make the world far better than it is today
