There was an old lady in the village who was revered as the Wise One. For a long time, all of the people had been going to see her, complaining about the same problems every time.

One day, she had had enough and she told them a joke. They all laughed heartily at the joke.

After a couple of hours, she told the same joke and only a few of the people laughed.

When she told the joke for a third time, none of the people laughed any more.

The Wise One smiled and said:

“You can’t laugh at the same joke over and over. So why are you always crying about the same problem?”

The moral of this story:

Worrying will not solve any of your problems. Not a single one! All it does is waste your time. What one thing can you do today to get closer to resolving the problem?
