The Root of Every Problem – Part 1

Everyday, we are thankful to be receiving an equal time of 24 hours a day to fulfill our needs and satisfaction. Individuals have their agenda for the day everyday. For example, some are working in office, studying in institutions, on vacations or doing absolutely nothing. However for some, they utilize their time and effort wisely to accomplish their personal goals and achievements. Speaking of which, how are you spending your day every single day? This topic will be covered in the future but right now we are focusing the root of every problem.

Going back on track, no matter what we do in our lives, we always encounter a problem or obstacle that forbid us to reach towards our goals. And most of the time, it does not flow accordingly as what we wanted it to be. In many cases, dissatisfaction will occur, questions will be created, finger pointing will be released, names will be mentioned, blames are made and arguments will be chaotic.

Let me give you a scenario, imagine yourself dating a partner and for the first few months, the relationship went smoothly and both of you are happy. Later, you began to have other commitments in work that used up so much of your time and conflicts began between both you and your dating partner due to relationships commitment and next thing you know, the relationship ended. BOOM! What just happened there? What is going through your mind if you were in that situation? Fingers are starting to point at someone doesn’t it? For some may start to accuse your boss because of the workload, or the economy is bad, therefore you need to work extra hours, or maybe colleagues were not helpful enough or your dating partner was not reasonable enough that you need to prioritize your job over the relationship or any possible reasons you can come out with.

Allow me to share with you; all of these reasons are easy to be mentioned to throw away your frustrations and making you feel better. But do you realize that you are creating the poison within yourself? And sometimes you are spreading among your circle. Have you ever look yourself into the mirror and thought to yourself that for that moment, was there a slight chance that you were the root of the whole entire problem? Have you ever take the responsibility to put the blame in yourself? Many of you will not accept it because it will only lower down your self-esteem which will lead to depression and much worst.

It is exactly the same problem that most of you are questioning like the one listed below here. Are any of these familiar to you? WHY

  • Am I not rich and successful?
  • Most of my colleagues have a higher salary and bonuses except me?
  • Is my results weaker than those who plays most of the time?
  • Do people always get what they want while I don’t have such privilege?
  • Everybody treat me differently?
  • My partner broke up with me?
  • Can’t I travel to many places like my friends?
  • Can’t I afford to buy this property?
  • Have I not gotten any promotion?
  • Is the economy so weak?
  • Everything is getting more and more expensive?
  • Am I so unlucky all the time?

All of these questions may be differ but all of them hold the same answer. Would you like to know who holds the key to all of these problems? Be prepared!
