Inner Peace and Joy Tip #36: Accept People For Who They Are

Inner Peace and Joy Daily Meditation Tip: The Bible is loaded with wisdom nuggets. Read Proverbs 5, pull out the wisdom nuggets and apply it to your life.

Do Not Change People
A secret to inner peace and living a life full of joy is "Do Not Try To Change People." It is not unusual to meet someone and say to yourself "I can change that person".

If you try to change people, what is going to happen is that you will continually be frustrated. I am not saying that people can not change nor am I saying that you can not positively influence people. What I am saying is, if you want to maintain your inner peace, then you should not get boggled down in trying to change people rather you should "Accept People As They Are"

For example, If you meet a person and they do not have all of the virtues that you like or their character is not to your liking then you should decide right then and there if you are going to continue to keep their company or if you are going to disassociate yourself with them.

The key to your inner peace is going to be in your ability to take control over your circumstances.
