When You Have Problems

A humorous story tells about a speeding motorist who was caught by adar from a police helicopter in the sky. An officer pulled him overand began to issue a traffic ticket. "How did you know I was speeding?" the frustrated driver asked.

The police officer pointed somberly toward the sky. "You mean," asked the motorist, "that even He is against me?"

It's like the man who said, "It feels like the whole world is against me...but I know that's not true. Some of the smaller countries are neutral.

"When we have a problem, it can often feel as if everything in our life is going wrong. We may tend to think that everybody is upset, that nobody cares or that everything is falling apart.

To think more clearly and to solve your problems more effectively, try letting go of these destructive beliefs:* Let go of the idea that your problem is perma­nent. Few troubles last forever. And those that can­not be solved can usually be managed.

* Let go of the idea that your problem is pervasive. Few problems affect every area of your life.

* Let go of the idea that your problem is personal. There is nothing wrong with you because you have a problem. All capable, lovable andsuc­cessful people have plenty of problems.

Remember, worms cannot fall down. But human beings can -- and will.
Let go of these de­structive beliefs and you may be amazed at how muchbetter you feel already!
