The Power and Peace of Principle-centered Living

A person’s principles in life determine how he/she handles different situations in life.

Make use of your principles and understanding of priorities and synergy to tackle sudden ‘urgent’ matters. Work with your colleagues to find solutions, instead of contending with them. Rather than managing problems, try to identify solutions. Take steps to organize the week as a team, a family, or a community.

When we become principle-centered, we will find a different kind of peace.

* Peace in our ability to live, love, learn, and leave behind a legacy with balance and joy
* Peace in the development of our unique gifts that empower us with character and competence in the moment of choice
* Peace of being aware that our roles cooperate rather than compete, as they become parts of an interactive, living whole
* The peace of learning to pay heed to and live by our conscience

There are two factors that hinder our progress:

Discouragement and pride. To overcome discouragement, we need courage to face our lives. Make small promises to yourself and keep them. Slowly, you will be able to make and keep bigger promises and thereby develop a full personal integrity account. Pride is a stumbling block because it always makes us compare ourselves to others. Learning to be humble will help overcome pride.

Characteristics of principle-centered people:

* They’re more flexible and spontaneous.

* They aren’t bound by schedules and appointments.

* They regard life as an adventure.
* They have more fulfilling relationships with other people.
* They’re more synergistic. They work with others to develop a shared vision.
* They’re continuously learning.
* They are contribution-focused.
* They produce exceptional results.
* They develop a good psychological immune system. They can handle problems.
* They are well of aware of their own limits.

* They don’t work until they are left with no energy.

* They don’t spend until they don’t have any credit.
* They lead more balanced lives.
* They become more confident and secure.
* They’re better able to practice what they preach.
* They focus on things they can do to make a difference.
* They develop a rich inner life.
* They exude positive energy.
* They enjoy life more.

Letting go is something that you need to adopt to lead a life based on principles. Here are a few examples.

* Let go of perspectives that are popular and sound good but are based on illusion.
* Let go of things that are not first on your list of priorities.
* Let go of rational-lies-ing.
* Let go of unnecessary guilt.
* Let go of external sources of security.
