Bond with Your Passion and Set Free

There is so much to accomplish in life but there is only one route to bond with your passion and be a winner eventually. Learning to focus and by intensifying your concentration power is the secret to long-term gains. Masterminds are often noted for their unusual power to focus. Even the path to enlightenment in Buddhism is all about learning to focus. Remember, focus brings your passion together and focus only rips it apart. Those who can overwhelm anything through focus can dominate success and deceive failures. In a nutshell, don’t be undecided about what you want to accomplish in life, rather observe a person who is powerful in a unique way as he knows what he wants from life.


Since the energy within humans is very restricted, we ought to focus on them for a particular venture in a given frame of time. Learn to pre-arrange your aspirations and desires and pour all your energies on a sole goal without averting your focus prior to realization of success. If you want a union with your passion by learning to focus, then there are a only some questions which you ought to answer


  • Do you produce so many ideas that at the last part of the day you are not able to finish lone idea to conclusion?
  • Have you ever felt at the end of the day that you failed to bring about anything consequential towards your most sincere goals?
  • Do you frequently speculate where all the time is lost?
  • When there is a spurt of ideas in your mind, does that confuse people you share those ideas with?


Distraction obstructs imagination and internal seriousness from rising. It is tough to focus and complete what you began to perform, when you are greatly disturbed. Don’t let material distractions deter you from the trail to realize your passion.

12 Tips for Nurturing Your Personal Freedom

There’s a lot of pressure to conform to society’s definition of success. Right from school, you hear that there is pretty much one path. A good job, a one-way upwards career trajectory, a family, big house, lots of money. But your personal freedom doesn’t get mentioned. Nor does inner peace. But you don’t have to step too far outside your regular life to allow space for greater contentment, and freedom from the anxieties and pressures of modern life. 


There are some key things you can do right now to nurture your personal freedom and achieve greater contentment with your life. 


  • Let go of past hurts and sufferings, acknowledging what you have learned along the way.
  • Believe in your heart that you deserve love and good things in your life and that you wish these for the other people in your life. 
  • Act kindly in your interactions with other people, whether it’s friends, family, colleagues or the person you walk past in the street. People will remember how you treated them long after they have forgotten your words.
  • Be kind to yourself and acknowledge that you mostly do the best you can. And when you make a mistake, you learn from it and do better. 
  • Acknowledge that you have control only over your actions and reactions. You can’t control other people, but you can control how you respond to them.
  • Own your past mistakes but do not let them define you. 
  • Be at peace with change and accept that it is part of the ebb and flow of life. 
  • Set goals to achieve what you want out of life but be flexible and prepared to adapt to changing circumstances. 
  • Don’t compare your life to others, especially as they present themselves on social media. People always display their best sides and rarely acknowledge weakness or when things are going badly. 
  • Choose to be compassionate. Most people are trying to do their best most of the time. 
  • Be grateful for where you are, and what you have right now. Don’t get caught up in a dissatisfaction loop where the other guy’s life looks better. Chances are you are already living an abundant life.
  • Learn to relax and allow things to be, rather than try to second guess all the time. Adopt the Buddhist philosophy of detachment, breathe, and let go of anxiety. Allow and trust that the Universe will give you what you need.

The Importance Of Inner Peace

If you’re like me, the first time you heard the term inner peace was from an animated, talking turtle on the children’s movie Kung Fu Panda (Master Oogway). There was something so serene about the smile of the fictional character that I needed to know more.


Perhaps you already know that inner peace is a state of quiet calm. Inner peace is achieved in the mindthrough partial emotional a detachment and selective focus. Inner peace is important because it allows you to guide your life through conscious decisions rather than emotional reactions. Inner peace enables you to stop reacting to your environment and to really choose your actions.


Partial emotional detachment and selective focus seem like easy concepts when you say them out loud. However, these two concepts can be some of the most difficult mind-work that you ever embark on. Master Oogway attempted to introduce many people to the concept of inner peace, and he was dead-on in describing the concepts. For an animated character, he had some pretty important points to make.

“There is just news. There is no good or bad.”


One of the key concepts that Master Oogway tries to teach during the movie is a tenant of inner peace. There is no such thing as good or bad news, it is all just news. highlights how slight detachment can allow you to look at information without reacting to it. If someone tells you something that you don’t like suggests that you start by asking yourself some important questions.


·      Is the news important?

·      Why am I affected by the information?

·      Is it true?


If we react with the emotions first, these types of questions cannot be asked. If we don’t know whether or not the information is true, we cannot choose to use it. If the information isn’t important, then we can choose not to react to it at all. Finally, if we know why we are affected by the information, we can truly begin to understand how it pertains to us. 


Realizing that all news is just information and our reactions to it are within our control helps us achieve inner peace and guide our lives through conscious decisions rather than emotional reactions.

“An acorn can only become the mighty oak, not a cherry tree.”


Many times people who are struggling to find inner peace are struggling because they are fighting against nature and choosing to focus on their failures. Selective focus allows you to choose which elements in your life to highlight. It also helps you learn acceptance.


Tiny Buddha discusses how acceptance plays an important role in finding inner peace. Knowing that you cannot change other people or situations can greatly increase your satisfaction with the world. Just as you cannot make an acorn become a cherry tree, you can’t change things that are outside of your control. The only thing you can change is your acceptance of the situation or other people’s behavior.


Selective focus is choosing how you see things. Selective focus is also choosing what you spend your energy on. notes that when you take responsibility for your state of mind and stop giving power to others, you can choose how you feel. Tiny Buddha backs this up by noting that you are in full control of your thoughts.


Before researching inner peace, many people feel that their thoughts are outside of their own control. They are too focused on trying to get an acorn to turn into a cherry tree, so they cannot even conceptualize about anything else. Once you take control of your thoughts and focus on the benefits of the acorn tree your satisfaction and inner peace will increase.


Yes, there is more to learn about inner peace than something that can be taught from an animated turtle on a children’s movie. But, inner peace can be broken down into pretty easy concepts introduced in simple ways to people everywhere.


If you need more guidance than what Master Oogway provides, you can always seek professional guidance and counseling or spiritual counseling to help you on your way to finding inner peace. No matter how you get there, having inner peace will certainly serve you in your life.
