Peaceful State of Mind

Recently, I have been reading the book called 'Peaceful of Mind' written by a monk and it actually helps me improving my own thinking process to be more systematically and practically in any situations. I think to be calm is what I really need after the maximum level of tension I had been through during the downward occasions. Now, it makes me realize how happy it is to stop thinking and worrying about the things which hasn't happened yet. It stops me from doubting my capabilities in coping with my own work, as well as, future plan. 

I don't know about you but I feel so good about myself since I have stopped myself from becoming overwhelmed by random thoughts. People always ask me if I have ever felt under controlled or being pressured by workload at all? Even once I had to finish three assignments from my Master's programme before running to two events in the same week. My answer always be "No, why should I stress about it?" I used to live under tension but I don't let it kill me that easily. I love keeping myself busy and working 22 hours a day. Call me crazy but it's in my veins. I don't know why should I stress over these things which hasn't occurred yet. Thanks to the 'self-improvement' books I have always read including The Secret, also Chicken Soup by Jack Canfield because these books are the truly treasures I wouldn't even wanna trade with anything else. 

As some of you may know that I'm not into studying (but still taking MA course, don't know if I'm trying to kill myself lol) but I love to experiment in reality. I don't really care about grades because at the end of the day grades are not increasing my income nor making me step into the further position of the company. That's the reason why I choose to focus on 'work' instead of dealing with 10 things at the same time. 

My best advice to you is to "get organize" it really works and always will be. You can't control everything instantaneously because we are all human beings not a robot. Choose whatever necessary to you most and stay focus on that with your best effort. You may have some other tips to stay calm but this is how I treat myself to have the "peaceful state of mind

Also, I'm so pleased the book written by a monk has been of help to you, would you mind telling me the exact title of it as I'm on the lookout for some more self-help books at the moment!? :)

  29. I like you really in this look and as I own a similar blazer I hope I can create something similar :) And I think this monk is so right: it doesn't make sense to think about things which didn't happen so far ... and I know the excercise is hard to stop thinking about but so helpful and satisfying in the end.
