The means to live effectively

Welcome to this edition of your Weekly Winning Resource all about the word serenity. Serenity refers to the mood where you feel peaceful, calm, and free from troubles. At first glance, it can seem like serenity is something that comes upon us based on what’s happening in our lives and how we feel. Actually, it’s quite the opposite. Serenity is a practiced behavior and a state of mind that you can create with intention. Essentially, you can DECIDE to have s spirit of serenity no matter what is going on around you. Serenity isn’t the absence of troubles and difficulties, it’s the attitude you choose to have regardless of the events happening in your life. Serene people learn to accept what they can’t change and focus their attention on what they can. Serenity requires a mental preparedness for challenges before they arrive. As an example, you don’t wait until your sick to start taking care of your health. You take care of your health now, while you’re well, so that you don’t get sick. Another example, you don’t wait until you get the promotion to do the job, you do the job now so that you get the promotion when it becomes available. Practice being mentally prepared for adversities that may show up by picturing in your mind how you will stay calm and at peace during these times. Every time you practice in your mind and align your actions with what you know is the right choice, serenity becomes more and more your actual reality.
