“People who are selfish have little problems but they seem big. People who are generous have big problems but they seem little.” ~ Mother Theresa
As I listened to the contents of this video, I became seriously aware, that I share many of the subject’s traits. How many times in your life, has someone spoken of their problems, that to them seem insurmountable? You, however, look at their problems and you cannot believe how the other person can be so upset about things so small and trivial.
I’ll guarantee you, that people who generally tend to turn molehills into mountains, are small-minded and self-centered. Their main concern in life is their own personal wellbeing and not the wellbeing of others. They are selfish at heart, I know, because I used to be like that. That is why I became depressed. My little problems were huge to me because I had no perspective.
People who are abundant in spirit and generous seem to handle everything in life with grace and calmness. They are the ones, other people turn to in times of difficulty. They are also the kind of people who eventually become leaders, not because they want to. But because other people want them to.
So, what kind of person are you?
