There was a time in my life in my early 30s when I was unhappy, I hadn’t much money, I hated the job I was in, and I kept going over and over in this loop and I would look at the people around me, my friends, people I knew, acquaintances. I was living in the eastern suburbs of Sydney.
Most of the people had nice cars. They had their careers. Their own lives and I would compare myself and I felt lost. I tried different emotions. I tried anger for a while. I tried frustration for a while. I tried guilt, unworthiness, even resentment. Envy, all these emotions I would go through different patterns all the time and I realized none of them would end up serving me and my problems wouldn’t change.
My situation wouldn’t change. And then by the time I got to my late 30s, I had achieved some success. I had made a difference. I had overcome a lot of my own fears. Coming up against my glass ceiling of where I thought I was capable of and I continued to push through and I got to the other side and I was able to look back and I started looking back at those things.
Those things where I was, that person, now 10, 12 years older or whatever it may be and I realized even though I’d gone through all them cycles, it didn’t change anything. The only thing that I changed was me because of the problems that I had been served. They shaped me. They continue to shape me.
And I think the greatest gift is not to wish for our problems to go away but to look at them, look them in the eye and ask how can we learn from them? How can we start to create change in our life from these and move forward anyway?
Because no matter which emotion we end up jumping onto, whichever one we represent, the situations never change. What changes is an acquired knowledge and then an action. Mindset. Tools.
So for me, my tip is for anyone listening to this is don’t wish your problems to go away but develop a toolkit and a mindset that’s applicable that you can feel direct change and evolve those over the time ’cause the problems never change but your relationship with them will. Hope that helps.
