Each human being is a world of their own, with their own personality, even brothers & sisters can be different even if they are all educated in the same way. There are many factors that influence who we are and how we see things, such as the world, the people we surround ourselves with, the music we listen to, what we see on the television, in short, many things around us affect us, be it for better or for worse.
Recently I observed several people in a particular situation and I was surprised to see that each one saw the situation in a completely different way, the same situation but seen from two very different points, how interesting, right? That is why I quickly did a self-analysis and asked myself: Do I want to be part of the problem, or do I want to be part of the solution? Many people see a locked door as a problem while others see it as an opportunity to use a key. Other people focus on a NO that was given to them without thinking that this NO really means better opportunities are on their way. Many people still get upset when a tire blows out, they get stuck in traffic, or something delays their departure without stopping to think that this mishap could save them from an accident or something else.
Did you know that when Tomas Edison, who invented the light bulb was asked, “How did it feel to fail 1,000 times?” Edison replied, “I didn’t fail 1,000 times. The light bulb was an invention with 1,000 steps.” What a tremendous response and excellent teaching!!! He did not give up on the first failure, on the contrary, he kept trying repeatedly until he achieved his goal. We have to learn that when an apparent problem arrives, we can’t focus on I don’t know how to do it, etc., etc. Look at it as the opportunity to do something new, something different, seek to learn about this problem because I assure you that in everything situation, we learn something.
I believe that this new year is an excellent opportunity to stop being part of a problem and be part of those who seek solutions, I believe that then life will be much better!
