The Book of Proverbs is loaded with wisdom nuggets. Read Proverbs 31, pull out the wisdom nuggets and apply them to your life.

When you are working on maintaining your Inner Peace and living a life full of joy, you are going to have to learn how to control your thoughts. Learning how to control you thoughts sounds easy but it is not an easy task. Controlling your thoughts is going to require the 3 P's
  • Practice
  • Patience
  • Perseverance
Many thoughts run through your mind daily. I have thoughts of lust, hunger, anger, mistrust, sleepy, joy, love, entertainment, work etc.

Some of the thoughts that run through your head are healthy but other thoughts are harmful in your pursuit of maintaining your Inner Peace. It is important that you analyze the thoughts that are in your head and weed out the ones that are arbitrary to your Inner Peace.

Weeding out your negative thoughts is not a one time affair. You have to practice this process daily until you get to the root of your negative thoughts and some of your negative thoughts may be deeply rooted.

Learning how to control your thoughts is going to require a lot of patience on your part because you are doing a mental cleanse.

One way of looking at it is, it took you many years for you to develop the thoughts that you carry around with you as of date so it is going to take many years to remove those same thoughts from your mind.

After you mastered removing the negative thoughts from your mind you are still going to have to have the patience to work on filling your mind with new positive thoughts.

When you are working on maintaining your Inner Peace and living a life full of joy you are going to have to learn how to persevere even when things do not look like they are going your way.

Your mental cleanse may take several years before you see the full results and you may be tempted to give up but you have to keep going no matter how long it may take.

Remember: Maintaining your Inner Peace is not an easy task but if you keep working on cleansing your thoughts of negative thoughts and replenishing your mind with positive thoughts you will see the results of Inner Peace.
