I remain peaceful amidst the financial crisis in my country.

Regardless of today’s news about the financial state of my country, I stay calm because my future is bright. I am blessed because I make sound monetary decisions.

Even in a down economy, I have the ability to prosper by following simple life principles such as living within my means and giving to others. The personal choices I make about my money matter more than the decisions made by my government.

I choose to live within my means; therefore I have peace about the financial future of my family. I also elect to believe that, in spite of challenging economic times, my job is secure because I am an indispensable worker. Each day, I work harder to prove to my employer that I am worth having.

My mind is filled with a quiet serenity because I turn off negative media. I refuse to listen to news channels and people who revel in negativity. Instead, I turn my ear to people who have a positive outlook and are searching for ways to improve.

I remain peaceful because, although I may not be able to control what goes on in the government, I do have power over my own thoughts and actions. I choose to think positively about the future by rejecting fearful ideas.

Today, I embrace tranquility by crushing negative thoughts at the root. I make my mind fertile soil for positivity to grow. Peace overflows from within when I place my trust in the principles by which I live, rather than in the government.
