Cope with 2020 by Practicing Purity, Patience, and Perseverance

Practice Purity, Patience, and Purity

Twenty years ago, I learned a valuable life-principle for dealing with chaos and uncertainty that has helped me to better cope with 2020 by practicing purity, patience, and perseverance.

My three trips to an ashram in India from 1996 to 2001 continued to reinforce the importance of living this revitalizing triad of values. It has served me well especially when dealing with chaos and uncertainty like we are collectively experiencing today. Here is how you can feel greater confidence, comfort, and calm by applying the 3 P’s—purity, patience, and perseverance—to your life and business…

The 3Ps: Purity, Patience, and Perseverance

“You are the master of the moments of your life.”

~Paramahansa Yogananda

Purity: Stay…

  • clear and aligned with your purpose, values, and desired intention
  • pointed toward feeling satisfied and optimistic moment-by-moment
  • centered, balanced, and organized to deal with whatever arises

Patience: Be patient and kind with…

  • yourself and your shortcomings
  • others—refrain from judging their motivations
  • the process and all involved—trust and allow things to unfold organically

Perseverance: Continue to…

  • be an open channel for receiving inspired ideas to move forward
  • infuse energy to propel you toward your desired intention
  • nudge things along bit-by-bit without pushing too hard

In all your endeavors, choose an attitude of gratitude. Celebrate small successes. Show appreciation to all in your circle of influence. Enjoy the journey.

Much success and fulfillment,

    First off I would like to say awesome blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to
    ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.

    I’ve had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend
    to be wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions
    or tips? Cheers!

      Thanks for asking! I like taking a walk or hike in nature first thing in the morning. I take a pocket journal with me and jot down bullet items as they come. Then, I like to create a mind map of the 3 to 5 key ideas ideas I want to communicate. Then, I begin elaborating on the bullet ideas. My target is typically 500 to 700 words.
