Strength in serenity
Step back from the noise and confusion. You are not a part of it,
and it does not have to consume you.
In serenity, there is strength. Staying calm, when confusion and
chaos surround you, keeps you firmly in control.
Many things can trigger an impulse to react, an urgent desire to do
something immediately. Hurried reactions, though, are usually not
the most effective.
By staying calm, you can respond with much more power and positive
focus. By staying calm, instead of letting events scatter your
attention in a thousand different directions, you remain in control.
Staying calm does not mean that you’re doing nothing. It means that
you’re responding with purpose, rather than with panic.
When turmoil arises, meet it with serenity. And you’ll put yourself
in a position of real power.
