Take a deep breath

The first rule is to keep an untroubled spirit. The second is to look things in the face and know them for what they are.

Too often when we are troubled, we evaluate a situation and decide what our attitude and reaction ought to be. The circumstance determines our level of peace. The challenge looks stressful, so we feel stress and then begin to think from a place of fear rather than creativity.

Finding a foundation of peace first, before evaluating, is a better approach. It's not denying the facts, it's simply deciding to operate from a place of internal security instead of letting the facts rattle us.

Moving in that state of peace, we observe and assess, and then make our decisions with a clear mind.

I am safe, I am at peace, I recognize there will be many options for transforming a difficult situation into an opportunity.
