That’s not true is it? You’ve got way more than 99 problems. There are almost an infinite number of problems you can ‘have’, some within your ability to influence, some outside of it.
Therefore, having ‘problems’ becomes a choice about where we put our focus.
I can choose to focus on a problem, be it big or small, or I can choose to focus on something else.
I recently noted that while things were going really well in my life, I was getting myself worked up about something really small.

We often compare today’s performance relative to yesterdays.
