“Even if the chaos envelopes you, it cannot define your outcomes without your permission.”
When the world around you crashes in, all is not lost, ruined, or destroyed. As long as you remain focused, confident, and true to the values that drive, inspire, and guide you, the peace that comes from this will lead you.
Too often the crises around us have the ability to completely stop us in our tracks. There will be days when we cannot control or even influence what goes on around us. The negative energy of these events have a great deal of pull. As long as we rely and focus on the positive energy we have inside us, nothing can stop, slow, or interrupt our progress.
There is no need to gird for battle and fight through the negative forces. Instead, go to that place of internal peace and remove yourself from the emotions of the situation and define a new, peaceful, and positive environment. Move forward from there.
