Inner Peace and Joy Tip # 55: Honest Work

Inner Peace and Joy Daily Meditation Tip: The Book of Proverbs is loaded with wisdom nuggets. Read Proverbs 24, pull out the wisdom nuggets and apply them to your life.

"You can have what ever you want if you just plan and work for it!"
Have you ever seen something that you wanted and just day dreamed about having it? You may have even said something like "Boy, I wish I had that..." If you continue to dwell on wanting to possess that particular thing, you will eventually start to feel deprived and that feeling of deprivation will keep you from maintaining your inner peace. What if I told you, you can have what you want if you just work for it.

Honest Work vs. Dishonest Work
When you do honest work to get what you want, it gives you a sense of accomplishment and you feel good about yourself. You can look at your possessions and say I earned these things with the fruit of my labor.

When you get what you want by conniving, cheating and stealing from people, you are not going to have inner peace because your ways are dishonest.

Here is How it Works
Your thoughts are going to be equivalent to you actions so if you have right thoughts you will take right actions. If you follow this formula, when you do the right thing, you will have inner peace. The opposite works if you are dishonest. If you are constantly entertaining thoughts about how you are going to do people wrong, you can not expect to have inner peace because your thoughts are disturbing.

When you work and take right actions you can have inner peace because you are not doing anything wrong to get what you want.
