Transformation is a process, and as life happens there are tons of ups and downs. It’s a journey of discovery – there are moments on mountaintops and moments in deep valleys of despair.
Imagine a life without ups and downs. Can you imagine it? No? I see…
Won’t life be boring without anything challenging or thrilling going on? Or do you just want to be on your death bed thinking how you spend a problem free life….but suddenly you’ll realize you don’t have anything worth remembering. Oh! Well, I don’t think that would be a satisfying death.
Ups and downs are an integral part of our life. Not necessary that they’re there by some law. Rather they are the result of our decisions. Think of every decision as a checkpoint in your life. Here’s something fundamental about our life:
Our decisions shape our future
One more thing. NEVER, EVER USE THE WORD PROBLEMS (except in case of mathematics). Instead use CHALLENGES. This simple replacement will give you a whole new perspective.
So, to conclude ups and downs are necessary for us. Without them we can’t live but just breathe.
Today if you are happy you are happier than one million people that will not survive this week. If there’s food in your fridge shoes on your feet, clothes on your body, a bed to sleep on and a roof over your head you are richer than 75% of people in the world. And if you have a bank account or money in your wallet or a purse or coins in a jar you are in the top 8% of the worlds wealthiest- YES those are the STATS, think about that the next time you have a down day. When you change the way you look at things the things you look at change! Ups and downs are necessary for us. Without them we can’t live but just breathe.
