I’ve Got 99 Reasons Why Your Problems Don’t Matter

99 Reasons Why Your Problem's Don't Matter
99 Reasons Why

When I learned how to manage my emotions, I started to master my circumstance — opposed to letting the ebb and flow of my life control me. My life didn’t get any easier, but the excuses were dismissed, leaving only me to take responsibility for my peaks and valleys.

In a sense, it was like I was entering the real world for the first time: acknowledging the full weight of the decision making process without the luxury of accomplices, team mates or “fall guys” to take/share the blame. I had to be fully accountable for my actions.

“Wanting success is not enough, you have to work for it.”

I noticed a shift in how I was responding to adversity. Instead of making a list of reasons why some other person, place, or thing had caused a problem; I was owning the issues and sharing in the successes.

In short, the problems didn’t matter anymore — I had shifted my focus to finding solutions and becoming a better problem solver.

Here are 99 reasons why I suggest you make the shift too:

  1. Everyone has problems, but only a limited amount of people find solutions.
  2. I have yet to encounter a person who hasn’t experienced hardship — period.
  3. The sooner you overcome an obstacle, the sooner you get back to doing the things you enjoy.
  4. Life is unpredictable.
  5. Stress doesn’t have any positive side effects.
  6. If you look hard enough or long enough — you can always find a person worse off than you.
  7. You survived the last crisis.
  8. Problems are a teachable moment.
  9. At the end of the day, the blame game doesn’t accomplish much.
