“Hey you! You do not have a problem. You might think you do, but often that’s not true. It’s just something you believe or not.” – Merijn Ruis

Hey you! You do not have a problem…
You do not have a problem.
You might think you do, but often that’s not true.
It’s just something you believe or not.
When you are stuck in a traffic jam and you are late for work, do you have a problem?
The answer is simple. Some people do and other people don’t.
Some people will rage about the traffic jam, they will honk all the time and curse at everyone they see.
Other people will just put on a silly music and start to sing really falsely. They will have fun because they know the traffic jam is outside of their control. However, they are in control of the response they give to the situation.
The problems we experience are often self-made. They are in our minds. It’s thoughts responding to the situation.
In real life a situation is just what it is and you can choose how you are going to react to it. So the next time you are facing something difficult you can try to ask yourself. “How am I responding? Is this the response that I want to give? What other response can I give?”
And who knows maybe you will start to have fun when your boss is yelling at you or when you have screwed up a test.
The more you do it, the easier it gets and in this moment everything is entirely fine.
Let’s say you do have something you consider as a REAL problem. Ask yourself: “Is there something I can do about it?” When the answer is yes, there is no reason to worry and if the answer is no.. , well.. hey! There is no reason to worry either.’
