Are you facing difficulty in your life? Is there a crisis that keeps you worried all the time? Is there some kind of predicament with your family or at work that is keeping you from performing at your peak? We all come across difficulty and problems from time to time. The first thing we need to realize is that we aren’t the only person with predicaments in our life. Almost every person on the planet could tell you some kind of difficulty that they are going through. Some are huge problems, some are miniscule. In the eye of the beholder, almost all problems are bigger than they seem. Are the drawbacks in your life holding you back?
We need to realize that our problems aren’t as big as the problems of others. We get upset about a bad hair cut or a little fender bender while children are starving in other parts of the world. We get miffed about an extra work load at our job or at school, while others are desperately looking for a job or might not have the opportunity to go to school. We are so blessed to live in this country. We are free. We can do anything we want, within the realm of the law. We can speak about anything we want. We can worship however we want. We can believe anything we want. We are so blessed. Always remember that.
Don’t worry. Don’t fret. Worrying gets you nowhere. Don’t be naïve and think you are the only person with problems. Don’t be naïve and think that your problems are as big as others around you. We have it so great. If you have some problems just remember this quote. If every person who complained about their problems could pile their problems in a heap, then each person could see the gravity of the problems of others, they would sneak forward shamefacedly and take their petty problems away and creep into the night – Unknown. How do your problems stack up to those around you? Most likely, they are insignificant. The important part is realizing that others have much bigger problems, and we can solve our problems without complaining.
I hope you realize that you can solve your problems without complaining. Enlist the help of others, but don’t complain to them about what is going on. Explain it in a factual manner. Don’t get emotional. Problems were made to have solutions. We solve the problem and we grow from the situation. We come across another, we find the answer, and we move on with our lives. No need to lose any sleep. No need to worry. Life is a continual game of problems and solutions. Play the game well. Play the game with veracity for life. Remember, your problems get bigger the more you worry about them; the more time you devote to solving them, the more the problems dissolve.
