Do You Have Problems? (Good!)..

New Beginnings Quote & Note – Day 29 of 30

By Norman Vincent Peale


One day, I was walking down the street when I saw my friend George walking toward me. It was clear from the look on his face that he wasn’t overflowing with the ecstasy and exuberance of human existence, which is a high class way of saying that George was dragging bottom..

So naturally, I took the bait.  “George!  How are you doing?”  While that was meant to be a routine question, George took me very seriously and for fifteen minutes he enlightened me on how bad he felt.  And the more he talked, the worse I felt.

Finally, I said to him, “Well, George, I’m sorry to see you in such a depressed state of mind.  How did you get this way?”  That really set him off.

“It’s my problems,” he said.  “Problems, nothing but problems.  I’m fed up with problems.  If you could get rid of my problems, I would contribute $5,000 to your favorite charity.”

Well now, I’m never one to turn a deaf ear to such an offer, and so I meditated, ruminated, and cogitated on the proposition and came up with an answer that I thought was pretty good.

I said, “Yesterday, I went to a place where there are thousands of people.  As far as I could tell, none of them has any problems.  Would you like to go there?”

George brightened right up and said, “When can we leave?  That sounds like my kind of place.”

“If that’s the case George,” I said, “I’ll take you tomorrow to Woodlawn Cemetery because the only people I know who don’t have any problems are dead.”

HARNESS THE WIND (MasterPeace Art | Original Picture Quote)

My Thoughts Behind This Creation: The image of Eagle with the background of the rising sun on the rocky coast of an ocean speaks to us of the following truths.. The Eagle is returning to its land base after hunting and feeding on the ocean life.. As the Master of its own Destiny, it is an independent creature that knows how to fend for itself.. For it is wild and strong.. And likewise we are called to be both fierce and independent.. For we are called to grow stronger and fly higher with every problem and adversity we face.. And here in this place of growth and victory we will begin to view problems not as a curse, but rather as a blessing for they are making us better and stronger when we embrace them as a friend with LOVE..
