We cannot use our minds effectively in a panic. Rather, it is much more effective to sit and reflect on the problem at hand. In this way, we can see clearly all aspects of the challenge and any opportunities there are for a solution.

Remember that a quiet mind leads to results and the next time you are faced with a challenge, even if everyone else is insisting on action, take time to gather your thoughts. Your solution will come to you in a manner that hasn’t been affected by emotion.

Look at the story below for example;

A Quiet Mind Leads to Results

“There once was a farmer who discovered that he had lost his watch in the barn. It was no ordinary watch because it had sentimental value for him.

After searching high and low among the hay for a long while; he gave up and enlisted the help of a group of children playing outside the barn.

He promised them that the person who found it would be rewarded.

Hearing this, the children hurried inside the barn, went through and around the entire stack of hay but still could not find the watch. Just when the farmer was about to give up looking for his watch, a little boy went up to him and asked to be given another chance.

The farmer looked at him and thought, “Why not? After all, this kid looks sincere enough.”

So the farmer sent the little boy back in the barn. After a while the little boy came out with the watch in his hand! The farmer was both happy and surprised and so he asked the boy how he succeeded where the rest had failed.

The boy replied, “I did nothing but sit on the ground and listen. In the silence, I heard the ticking of the watch and just looked for it in that direction.”
