1 Way You Can Create a More Peaceful World (Really!)

International Day of Peace, Sept 21, 2015

This is the second post leading up to the International Day of Peace on Sept 21.

The goal?

  • To share why real peace (not fake peace) matters to organizations, communities, and our world.
  • And to highlight specific behavior that anyone can do, wherever we are… To make a difference.

How many articles have you read lately where the headline and the image were shocking?

…But there’s a COMPLETE DISCONNECT between the article and the hooks that made your blood pressure rise?

They show up in my news feeds all the time.

Those headlines and images:
• Make non-issues appear to be real.
• Cause small challenges to seem enormous.
• Weigh on our hearts and our minds.
• Fuel doubt.

  • Division destroys creativity, synergy, joy, love and peace.

History and Current Events remind us that people without character use division:

  • To gain and keep power. 
  • And/Or to profit.

WILL YOU ACCEPT A CHALLENGE? And encourage others to do the same?

  • If it sounds and looks shocking – Pause before you share it.
  • Take a breath. Open it. Read it. Think about it. Do some research. Ask some questions.
  • Only if you find it to be well thought out – then share it.
  • We don’t have to be manipulated and/or divided by someone’s desire to make ratings or spread hate.

Together we can create a more peaceful world by learning to focus our energy on the real issues instead of the distractions!

  1. Pause and think about it before you share it – YES!!! We’re all so quick to buy into the sensationalism but it’s not helping anyone create more peace in our world. With you.
