Today’s Brilliance from Azziza Salem

If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I'd want to pass along to others...

  • Inner Peace = World Peace.

    Think about it. If we all just focused on achieving inner peace, wouldn’t world peace be a byproduct? Inner peace can be found by following your passion. Your passion is built-in and it is your job to excavate it. You have a purpose that no one else can fulfill. Your purpose can be found by following your passion. It is a burning desire to do that which brings you bliss.

    Follow your passion with unshakable relentless persistence. Don’t let temporary setbacks make you feel like a failure. Each setback is a lesson and a stepping stone on the pathway to your dreams. Each stepping stone will bring you closer to your purpose.

    Maintain your focus on what you want and take the next step. Don’t ignore your passion; it will keep nagging at you and you won’t be fulfilled until you fully cultivate it. Don’t worry about what other people are doing because you are meant to do that which brings you bliss.

    Don’t waste your energy on other people’s success and failure. Your success doesn’t depend on their failure. While you can’t ignore your passion, at the same time, you can’t ignore your pain.

    It turns out that the worst thing that ever happened to you will prove to be the best thing. You will find joy out of sorrow if you face your pain head on. There is a lesson to be learned in your trials and it is your job to find the gift.

    Your passion will have the power to transform your worthless spirit into a joyful soul. It will bring you a family of surrogate brothers, sisters, mothers, aunts and daughters who will lovingly adopt you. Your passion will reveal your shrouded light. It will excavate the joyful song inside of your heart.

    Your persistent burning desire cannot be ignored. It will validate your gift and affirm that you are talented. Your passion will give you adoration, smiles, applause and purpose. It will give you confidence and will always be there for you. When you are down, it will bring you joy. And when you are happy, it will help you express your bliss. It will lift you up and give you the power to heal.

    Through your passion, you will find inner peace out of adversity. Do your part and the world will be a better place. You have the power to change the world.
