Life is full of totally surprising events. You can’t even imagine what is going to happen in the next hours or the next days.
When bigger problems comes to our life without any previous notifications you will be surprised and depressed at the same time- a crucial moment. Such situations will always lead to bigger troubles. If we fails to handle them in the beginning, it becomes more complicated as time goes on. So the thing is how you handle the situation. For solving your problem you need to know what exactly your problem is. Can you explain your problem in one or two words?
The more you know about it, more simpler you can express it.
If you can explain your problem in simplest words -like dissatisfaction, or tension- then you can find the factor that makes it a problem for you- like over expectation, laziness, or over excitement.
You may have to ignore the factor sometimes, or make some simple changes to yourself for getting adapted with it or to overcome the problem. As Einstein meant, you will have to change the particular factor of your behavior for solving it as only that factor is responsible for the problem.
It may be your concern to something, perhaps because of your higher expectation. Before complaining we need to know what exactly the problem is, and then make necessary changes within ourselves. You will get the problem solved.
We can’t satisfy everyone at a time. Give priority to self satisfaction.
We all are very much familiar with the story of the thirsty crow. It should not be simply told. It should be studied. There is a lot more in the story that we missed to think. The morals is not only at the fantastic conclusion part but all through it.
We need to start thinking from the very beginning of the story -the crow gets a thirst. We all need to have this thirst- a feeling of need. If we feel like we need something, we will start thinking for a solution. Here, water was the solution.
The crow searched all around in search of some water. Have you ever searched solutions of your problems within you or somewhere near to you rather than complaining or going somewhere else to find a solution? The crow had an aim(water) and it put some effort for it- search.
Finally after a long search he found a pot with a some water. We all need to keep putting efforts for finding the solution. If you stop in the middle of nothing, all the efforts you spent will be in vain. Trust me, there’s always a solution for your problems doesn’t matter what it is.
But dramatically, in the story, the crow was unable to drink from it as the quantity was very less, and it was unreachable for him. When you finds a solution, you may think that it cannot be achieved and you were simply wasting your energy. Can you just stop doing it and start thinking? Your solution might be unreachable at the moment but keep putting efforts and you will definitely find pebbles near to you which can help you get the solution.
The crow took stones one by one and dropped inside the pot. You should not take a huge and heavy way to reach the solution. We need to go for what is comfortable for us and keep doing it. The solution will rise up and you will be able to drink from it.
The path may be a bit lengthy. It may take a bit more time. But you can keep yourself in the comfortable zone and will get the solution. Develop an aim(thirst), put some effort(search), and find your solution or destination(water). If it seems unreachable just stop doing and start thinking. The pebbles are just near to you. Find it out, make use of it, and reach your solution.
You might get confused seeing my concept of ‘stop learning and start thinking’. I just want to make sure nothing in this page misleads you to the wrong way
We are very much hurry in learning new things. Everybody want to hear, experience, and speak new things. All I have to tell you is just stop doing that for a while and start thinking about something. You might get deviated from something but that really doesn’t matter at all.
Issac Newton is familiar to us with his numerous inventions. He stopped learning at a moment and started thinking. It changed his routes. He changed the face of the entire world.
When the apple fell on Newton’s head, he stopped all his doings for a while and started thinking why did the apple fell exactly on his head and why not somewhere beside him or why didn’t it go up to the sky. That simple thought enabled the entire human kind to see new dreams.
We developed a lot of technologies with his findings. Rockets, satellites, missiles, space stations, and even the elevators we use in our daily life are various degrees of development extracted from his findings.
So don’t worry about getting into new unplanned paths. May be that is what meant for you. Just start thinking and change the world. Why should you give up your ideas and passions, and change yourself when you can change the entire world?
