Ok, you went to a job interview and were rejected for the position. Thus, you walk out the door assuming that you are not smart enough to fill any position. You start to think that people think you are stupid. The fact is we all experience rejections in life, thus how you perceive makes a different as to how you will accept the rejection. When your mind is full of doubts and negative thoughts, it is difficult to find inner peace.
Most people with pessimism attitudes go through life battling their thoughts and emotions daily and some even find it difficult to sleep during night hours because the mind is not quiet. Thus, the problem with these thinkers is that they lack the ability to set goals and achieve them often therefore inner peace seems out of reach.
Consider your goals carefully. What you are doing to achieve your goals and how much effort are you putting into reaching your goals. Are your goals achievable; or are you setting goals that are out of your reach. On the other hand, do you have goals?
Putting your priorities in order will help you find peace, since if you are not organized then it brings forth chaos, which clutters the mind.
If you are having difficulty, finding quietness of mind you may want to set small goals for self and when you achieve the goals pat your self on the back for doing a good job. When you fail, rather than ponder on the failure, think about what you could have done to reach the goal.
Encouragement is an award to the mind. When a person feels good about them, self they often find peace in the mind. Peace is essential to finding happiness. When a person feels sad all the time, it weighs down the mind to the point it slips out of reality and into a self-pity state. Self-pity is what provokes negative thinking, thus if you think you are the only one dealing with rejections, or hurt from life, consider the many others in the world with far more problems than you.
Persons with negative thinking patterns miss inner peace, since they allow every little problem weigh down the mind. The person often beats self up when nothing goes his/her way. Thus, if you think of rejections on a negative level, you are heading down the road to misery rather than down the highway to inner peace.
No is a good thing sometimes. If you are turned down for a position, it may be in your best interest. What if you landed the job and found you could not handle the position? On the other hand, maybe you like to engage in activities that lead to harm. Possibly someone that loves you is telling you no because they care what happens to you.
Life is full of rejections and we all get our fair share. Therefore, turning rejections in to positive outlooks can help you find quietness of the mind, which is inner peace.
Now, have you reviewed your goals? Are the goals bigger than you are? Alternatively, are the goals inexistent? Considering your goals now and setting small goals for your self is the first step to finding inner peace. People need to feel good about self. When a person feels bad about self all the time, the mind is rumbling throughout the days and nights dishing out the negative thoughts, since you forced the mind to believe in such a way.
Once you write down your goals, next you will need to train your conscious mind to think positive. If a person is constantly doing something negative in life, thus negative results will occur. When the conscious mind is acting out emotionally, it can cause a person to feel depressed, which also prevents inner peace, since negative thinking comes out.
Thus, training the conscious to think positive includes taking out the problematic issues in the behaviors or habits that cause depression, or guilt. Once you clean up your mind, you will feel a measure of inner peace. Still, this is merely a start, thus continuing to make your mind behave positively will help you to reach your journey to total inner peace.
