What I’ve Created For You This Week — Competing with Yourself
Hi friends,
I recently came across a concept loosely coined by Naval Ravikant that has helped me become calmer and more positive. The idea is that you always have three options in any circumstance. These include:
  1. You can change it.
  2. You can leave it.
  3. You can accept it.
In any situation, you always have these options. The worst option, which is not listed above, is sitting around and wishing you could change the situation. Interestingly, this is the struggle that is responsible for most of our misery and unhappiness.
Sitting around and wishing something would happen does not lead to any change. Thus, choose one of your options: change, leave, or accept.
Choosing to change is often the hardest option because it takes time, courage, and patience. However, accepting certain situations can be the best option.
Learning to accept is an underrated skill we can use to obtain mindfulness and happiness. So, the next time you notice you are getting annoyed by something or someone, simply say to yourself, “Try to accept and understand the situation.”
Have a great week!
