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.
My mind found a problem that I could focus on and solve, not because I needed to solve it but because that’s how my mind is wired and rewarded.
I realised that problems are a choice about where I put my attention.
I haven’t nailed it yet, but I’m working on having ‘no problems’ a lot more of the time.
Or do you want to be right?
Recently I was in a meeting with my management team.
One isn’t better than the other.
We all have different personas; the child, the warrior, the sage etc.
Is a feeling.
Entrepreneurs and doctors are similar in many ways.
Recently, I had an experience that led to a decision that on the outside might have seemed rapid and reckless.
Recently I met someone who inspired me to my very core; where they’ve come from, what they believe in, what they are doing, who they are, the integrity and courage they live with, the way they are living, the choices they are making, the trust they choose to live with…
They say the man who is going to live to 150 has already been born.
