Jonathan Cronstedt finds peace in a Buddhist proverb
We only have one more day left of the Empower Network blogging challenge. Here’s another from the series of quotes and habits that really make me tick.
The quote I wanted to share with you today is one of the coolest Buddhist proverbs – in my opinion, at least. Check out my YouTube video about it (http://youtu.be/7EshVS–ijg) and take a look at the post below.
Here it is: “If you have a problem that can be solved, there is no need to worry. If you have a problem that cannot be solved, there is no need to worry.”
Every time I read it, it reminds me of being focused and at ease, removing worry from my life. I personally feel that worry can be one of the most destructive forces because with it, we’re dealing with the stress of circumstances that may never actually happen. I just tell myself, “Jonathan, let it go.”
It doesn’t matter what sort of situation you have in front of you. If it’s a problem that has a solution, there’s no need to worry because you can solve it. If it’s a problem for which there is no solution, there’s still no need to worry about it – it is what it is.
It’s a simple reminder to everyone, and I hope it helps you out like it has me. Get thinking, not worrying.
Release some of your pent-up energy by blogging, and tell others about it, too. A great tool for you to use is Kalatu, the most powerful blogging platform in our industry. Details on that are here: https://www.empowernetwork.com/kickstart-cart-special/beach
