T he one constant we all have in our life, are our problems.
We all have many different problems we have to face day in and day out…
Like solving your health problems, finding a job, getting the car fixed, meeting the deadline for a report, blah blah blah. The list of problems we have are endless, and as you probably already noticed, never really come to an end.
The reason they never do is simply because solving your problems, creates even more problems!
Like when finishing that goddamn report after spending nights of overtime at the office, only to have your boss return it the next day to make further adjustments. As soon as the report is finally done, you start over only to find yourself writing the next report before you even notice it.
Or when doing something about your health problems! You get yourself a gym membership and find yourself having to get up early to hit the gym before work, pay the monthly membership fee, and shower straight after so you don’t stink up the entire office.
The point is, that the solutions to all your problems you have today, will lay the foundation for the problems you’ll be facing tomorrow.
The key to happiness is to simply choose what problems you want to solve.
You see, happiness doesn’t come from simply deciding to be happy, thinking positively, reading a top ten article on the Huffington Post, or some sort of self-help guru. Happiness is not something that is magically found.
Happiness comes from solving problems that you actually enjoy solving!
Sometimes those problems are hard, and sometimes they are easy to solve. We just need to know what problems we really want to solve in life.
Once I asked myself the question ‘What problems do I enjoy solving?’ I really understood what it meant to do something you’re passionate about.
What daily problems do you solve? And how much do you enjoy solving them?
