Running a business isn't easy, and there will be times when the stress will build up and you'll wonder what you were thinking when you decided to take the entrepreneurial route. This becomes especially true as we approach the busy holiday season.
Don't despair. Take a deep breath, and read these calming quotes for peace of mind.
“Sometimes the most important thing in a whole day is the rest we take between two deep breaths.”
"Nothing external to you has any power over you."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
"Nothing can disturb your peace of mind unless you allow it to."
Roy T. Bennett
"Our culture encourages us to plan every moment and fill our schedules with one activity and obligation after the next, with no time to just be. But the human body and mind require downtime to rejuvenate. I have found my greatest moments of joy and peace just sitting in silence, and then I take that joy and peace with me out into the world."
“It makes no sense to worry about things you have no control over because there’s nothing you can do about them, and why worry about things you do control? The activity of worrying keeps you immobilized.”
“To experience peace does not mean that your life is always blissful. It means that you are capable of tapping into a blissful state of mind amidst the normal chaos of a hectic life.”
Jill Bolte Taylor
“Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.”
"Whatever we are waiting for - peace of mind, contentment, grace, the inner awareness of simple abundance - it will surely come to us, but only when we are ready to receive it with an open and grateful heart."
Sarah Ban Breathnach
"Appearance is something absolute, but reality is not that way - everything is interdependent, not absolute. So that view is very helpful to maintain a peace of mind because the main destroyer of a peaceful mind is anger."
"When I am able to resist the temptation to judge others, I can see them as teachers of forgiveness in my life, reminding me that I can only have peace of mind when I forgive rather than judge."
