Today we discuss why peace is possible and how we can come together to make it happen.


Is peace possible? Are we able to cultivate a peaceful existence in a volatile and fragile world, even when it seems like things are falling apart? How can we possibly heal and grow enough to respect each other’s differences, replace anger with patience and compassion, and meet hatred and judgment with kindness and empathy?

The truth is, we all have the choice to live in peace–with ourselves, our family and friends, colleagues, neighbors, and even with complete strangers. If we want to create a peaceful world, we must first choose peace for ourselves, and doing so will spread and inspire others around us to do the same.

We can all pull some inspiration from a particular place that exudes positive energy and seems to have it all figured out—Hawaii. In a rapidly changing world full of discordance and disconnection, Hawaiian culture may have the much-needed answers to living in peace and harmony.

People from Hawaii are considered some of the friendliest in America, and for a good reason—the culture is based on love and acceptance. Hawaii residents greet each other and say goodbye with the word “Aloha,” which has a deep meaning that’s connected to joy, love, peace, and positive energy.

It refers to the act of living in the moment and showing respect for one’s self and others. Hawaii is famous for its relaxed attitude and a strong sense of compassion, collaboration, and community, with a central focus on living in harmony amongst our fellow man and the earth.

Today, I’m joined by Nicki Keohohou, CEO of the Direct Selling World Alliance and Co-Founder of the Coach Excellence School, to discuss what is truly necessary to create world peace, fairness, and justice for all. Nicki lives in Hawaii, which in many ways, is a template for peace. Don’t miss all that she has to share about the components of peace!
