All personal breakthroughs begin with a change in beliefs.

Don't ever mistake my silence for ignorance, my calmness for acceptance, or my kindness for weakness.

It is a mistake to believe that the silent person is ignorant. The silent person is almost always the one that you should listen to most, when they talks. 
Instead of spending time babbling about unimportant things, listens, and learns. Spends time in thought instead of meaningless conversations about nothing. Ignorant is the last adjective that would describe.

If you are looking for wisdom, look to the quiet man or woman who knows when it is time to speak and when it is time to be silent. 

One's silence denotes wisdom and intelligence, not ignorance. 
But when ignorant of the subject at hand, you will not know, as the good sense to stay silent and learn, instead of trying to sound knowledgeable on a subject which one knows nothing about.

Likewise, the person who can stay calm in all situations is a person of quiet confidence. Do not read anything into one calm demeanour, except for the fact that probably has act together. 

One who is confident in oneself, has no reason to lose one cool maintains composure in spite of the storm around.

In addition, uncommon calmness does not signal acceptance of the situation, but rather rational thought and self-confidence in ability to handle whatever comes one's way.

You may even find that the more dire the situation, the more calm and rational the warrior becomes because he is even more focused than normal. 
While other are losing their composure, taking everything in and rationally deciding how to respond to the situation calm in the eye of the storm.

Many people also tend to look at the kind-hearted person as weak or wimpy. This is another common misconception. 

Kindness is not a weakness; it is a strength, benevolence does not signify weakness, rather it signifies the one's good heart. 
You can have a good heart without being weak, in fact, I would suggest that it takes courage and self-confidence to be kind in every situation.

The weak do not have the self-confidence to be kind in every situation, only in the situations where there is no risk to them. 

To have the self-confidence to be kind, even when one has to be firm, benevolence is a sign of strength, not weakness. 
And it is a mistake to see one kindness as a sign of weakness, a mistake that has cost many predators dearly.

The person who can maintain a calm silence in troubled times, and at the same time, can continue to be kind to everyone in our path, while they lose both their composure and their benevolence, is a person of honour and integrity. 

Mastered the art of inner peace. But this in no way should be seen as weakness, ignorance, or acceptance of unacceptable situations. 

Those who truly understand, will hold such a person in great regard.

So it is.
