Peace in volatile markets. With the stock market falling and life investments failing (Bill Gates lost $3.2 Billion on Monday alone!), peace can still be found.

The stock market is a metaphor for everyday life, of sorts. Ever had a life experience where the “bottom falls out”? Ever thought life should be going one direction and it shoots in another? With every twist, turn and disappointment, peace can reign. How?

First, there are no failures in life, only lessons to learn. When Edison was asked how he handled thousands of failures before discovering electricity, he replied, “I never failed, but I learned thousands of ways that didn’t work”. 

If we have the mindset of “learning” from each of our endeavors – there are no failures. We can rest and have peace with that! Count it a joy to learn from each experience, use what you’ve learned on the next and watch life flourish!

Next, know beyond a shadow of a doubt that all things will work together for your good. Reminds me of the song, “Thank God for unanswered prayers”. Many times what we think is best for us, isn’t. In fact, some of the most grueling times in my life have worked more for my good than some of the greatest successes in my life.

When I try and push things, they seldom work. When I give up control and live in the present with an attitude of thankfulness, everything seems to work. Embrace and appreciate all life experiences, learn the lessons and allow an inexplicable peace to saturate every part of your life…
