Finding Peace by Cooperating Instead of Competing

Today I want to share with you a lesson I learned from my good friend, Michael Combs. If you are striving to be productive, and if you want peace in the world around you...then you must ELIMINATE competition from your life. By observing your life, you may find that you have built a life that is full of competition. Pay special attention to words such as, "This is tough," or "I'm fighting my way through this." Likewise, pay special attention to thoughts that keep your mind in competition programming. "This is going to be a long road," or "I've got to work hard so that I can earn this income," are typical thoughts that can lead you toward a life of strains and struggles.

Start now cooperating with the world around you. Don't look at your world as being a difficult place to exist that always needs you to have your sword and shield raised high. Instead take a moment each day to analyze where you can become more cooperative.

How can you cooperate with the marketplace? How can you cooperative with fellow associates? How can you cooperate with family and friends? The weather? Your car? Your health? Look at as many areas as possible as you strive for balance and peace.

This is a good topic for journaling. Write down not only your observations, but what you can do to make your life easier. You will find that when you do things begin to fall into place and you begin to accelerate down the path of accomplishment.
