Using the best quotes about serenity, self-control and inner sovereignty as a source of personal inspiration!

Recognizing that you have often been tense and stressed lately, reacting accordingly sensitively to additional stressful situations and quickly becoming angry, is the first step. The second should be to specifically train your own resilience to become much more calm and maintain your composure even in the most unpleasant situations. Confidence in yourself and a certain balance are the basis for a stable, inner equilibrium, for calmness and composure. Learn to control yourself in a world where nothing else seems controllable.

I hope that with this collection of quotes I could give you a valuable, inspiring list. How do you manage to stay calm in moments of stress and react with thoughtfulness? Do you have questions or are you still missing a saying or two here? Then just write me a comment under this post.
