How to avoid problems in life

If you want to avoid problems in life, you are going to fail. Problems are here for us to grow, to push us, to expand, to learn new things. You are never going to stop having problems/challenges in life. The sooner you make a peace with that, the sooner you are going to feel better.

Problems are nothing but opportunities. Why we even call problems problems? The word problem has very heavy connotation, it weights a ton. Call your problems challenges instead, and watch how you are going to feel after that. But not just any challenge. A challenge that you are looking forward to solve, find a solution for it.

“Neglect your problems and they will flourish, face them and they will disappear.”   – Maja Marinic

To avoid problems and challenges in life, I think, is by building yourself up, working on your mental health. Because hey, if you are strong in your head, you know your self, you trust yourself, you have a faith that everything is going to be ok, that you will find a way to make it work, then everything is going to be just fine. Believe in it, trust the process.

Everything is figureoutable

Why don”t we see our challenges like a solving jig saw puzzles?

We want to play, and it is interesting to search for a matching piece, we enjoy playing game. We like the whole picture of it. It is beautiful scenery, or something that is dear to our hearts. We will take as much time as we need to make the picture whole, we will even schedule a time to work on this. And funny enough, we even call our friends and family to help us, and every time we have amazing time together, it is so much fun.

So the question is: “Why we don”t look at our problems like solving jig-saw puzzles? Trying different pieces, turning around, coming to it later once when we get tired. Really, can we see our problems as a puzzle solving machines? What do you think about that?

Problems reminds us that we are doing something wrong.

Maybe that is part of the truth. Because hey, if you planned that trip in the detail, the problem would not occur at all.

Many people go through life unprepared, with head on, all in. But you need to prepare yourself prior you go after something, you need to know what to expect, what to bring, and what it requires from you.

Get yourself ready to be ready, is something that Esther and Jerry Hicks promotes, and I love it so much. Why? Because all is about preparation. Oprah Winfrey also, for reason say that: “Luck is when preparation meets opportunity.”

So to avoid problems in life, plan your future and the details in it before time, don”t let things happen by default, create them.

There are the countless of books about how to solve the problems in life. One of my favorite is: What is your problem?

“The author makes a compelling case that we often start solving a problem before thinking deeply about whether we are solving the right problem. If you want the superpower of solving better problems, read this book.” — Eric Schmidt, former CEO, Google

Curb your ego

I highly recommend you to watch my video about “How to solve our personal problems.” It is all about solving those problems, having fun with it (try at least). To feel better about that, you can say something like: “Look what problem do I have’!” (in a fun way) and start solving it.

Everything that we facing in life, and are going to face requires some work from us, sometimes less, sometime more. Don”t be afraid to put the time in something, in order to make it work. Why would you be afraid anyway, right? I know, we all want to sit on that beach, sip cocktails under the palm tree, and do nothing, but life is not created this way. Life is work, constant doing something, working towards something. What it is that you want to work towards to???

Tony Robbins say: “Progress equals happiness.” And I truly believe that is true. Because I often find myself happy going after something, working towards it.

  • Think on paper
  • What is the problem?
  • Offer solutions
  • What can YOU do?
  • Can you find a book written on that?
  • Who could you ask for help?

Think on paper. Whatever challenges you are facing now, just put them on a piece of paper. Our minds are really messy places, and the more we think, the more it seems we are going to go crazy.

Once on a paper, our process to solve that begins. Now, all that you can do, is offer solutions. What you can do? Is there somebody you can ask for help? And many more…

“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” Albert Einstein Source

Don”t try to pretend that nothing is going wrong, pretending that everything is fine, when it is not. The sooner you face something or someone, the sooner you are going to feel better about it, and it will disappear, it will stop bothering you.

Problems are opportunities.

The power of focus

This Blog Post contains Affiliate links

Focus is huge. How many times you were completely focused on something? You were so interested in the listening to conversation, for example, that you couldn”t hear somebody outside calling you?

I know my sister was often numb, if I can say this way. We were calling her for a minutes, but she always had that look, like she is busy in thinking something else, contemplating, she had always had that imaginary look.

In this video below, I talk about all the things that I could remember about being focused. I really hope you will like it, and that is going to be of great value to you.

I will never forget a Jim Rohn saying in one of the videos on Youtube. When he was with his kids, he was thinking office. Being in the office, he thought of being with his kids instead.

Do you see how this habit is broken, not good? You are going to be always in lack. You will never actually experience all that you are working on, or experience in the full.

Book atomic habits is huge. We are sum of the habits that we were doing for the years, but that can be changed. What would you like to change in your every day life? Tell us honestly!

  1. Be consistent in whatever you do

  2. Optimize and track your successes and failures

  3. Don”t move on until you reach all your goals Source

Many people lack in direction, that is why they never reach their goal, or most importantly, they are never really focused. Confusion and indecisiveness is a problem in them. They often only wonder, never taking any massive action.

I don”t know have you heard about the Tony Robbins. Most probably you did, reading this Personal Development blog. He promotes a massive action, he is a massive action freak. We need to take massive action towards the things that we want.

Where your focus goes energy flows.

I don’t know about you, but I often times think in term, how there is an Africa out there, people living in poverty, even though I cannot see it with my naked eye.

It is not in my focus, but there also in another country is my mom and dad, now sitting on a terrace and enjoying their coffee. Isn”t that amazing?! Things and people are happening anyway, despite of we see them or not.

Your focus and attention now determines how you are going to live in the future.

2 people walking along are going to influence one another. The only question is, which one of them is going to be more dominant.

If you are one who is more dominant, your walking partner will have all his or her attention on you, and what you have to say, their all focus will be on you.

You be that dominant person at put all your attention on the good that you do.

People, circumstances, and life in general shaped us for who we are now.

What or who you wanna become in the future? Decide today, and put all your focus on that. Study it, be in it, learn it, try it, and you shall become. It is the law!

Focus on the good within people, and they will feel that. I had so many people challenges. Working with very fat people, slumpy people, stupid people, but instead, I chose to focus on the good in them. And guess what, we had amazing relationship all along. We were amazing teams!

Is your focus on the good in people or bad?

You can see also the power of focus by focusing only on the red color around you.

Do this exercise now: Look around yourself and look for the red, only look for the red color. How many objects that you see are red?

Now tell me what are the yellow that you saw? The chance is, that you didn’t saw any yellow. Why? Because you were looking only for red. And you get what you focus on.

Take care of your body

You must sleep 7 to 9 hours a day to be able to be fully focused on what you do. Your mind has to be sharp, and you cannot do that, if you didn’t have enough sleep. It is that simple!

Go to bed at the same time each evening. For example, I go to bed every night at 9 pm. I first read 30 minutes, and then I am ready to sleep. If I cannot fall asleep in 15 minutes time, I would take a book again, and read for another 30 minutes. 15 minutes rest again, and trying to fall asleep again, and so on.

It works for me. I hope it will work for you too.

The only goal is to be well restful. You can also do the thing like “power nap” in the afternoon. I do that as well. But I meditate. And it is like a reset, it’s like you are starting fresh.

One more thing that you can do, is putting your phone behind the laptop screen while you working. It does miracles to me. You don”t have a temptation to check the notifications, but to be fully focused on what you do.

Out of your sight, out of your mind.

You only check your phone if you hear actual notification. Even more, you can turn off all your sounds, and not check your phone at all until the work is done.

Focus can bring you so far. What do you want? What do you really, really want?

Focus is a skill that can be learned overtime. You only need to put the time and effort in it. Work on it every day.

What is your intake or opinion on focus? Are you working on focusing yourself fully and entirely on what you do, or this is not of importance to you? Tell us in a comment section below 🙂

I like to focus myself on what I do lately so often. For example, if I sat down 2 hours for writing, I am not going to go to check my hair 😀 (I know :D), or I am not going to respond to that received message if it”s not important.

I really really really hope that will help you!

Tell me if it did, or if it did not.

Secret Daily Teachings

Day 72

If you have “needing money” in your vibration, then you will keep attracting needing money. You have to find a way of beeing happy NOW, feeling good NOW, and being in joy NOW, without the money, because those great feelings are how you will feel with the money.

Money doesn”t bring happiness – but happiness brings money.

Day 74

Any words you speek have a frequency, and the moment you speak them they are released into the Universe. The law of attraction responds to all frequencies, and so it is also responding to the words that you speak. When you use very strong words such as “terrible”, “shocking” and “horrible” to describe any situation in your life, you are sending out an equally strong frequency, and the law of attraction must respond by bringing that frequency back to you.

The law is impersonal, and simply matches your frequency. Do you see how important it is for you to speak strongly about what you want, and not to use strong words about what you don”t want.

What you focus on expands

Day 76

When you were a small child playing make-believe, do you remember how convincing your imagination was to you. Well, this is what you must do when you want anything. Secretly, inside yourself, pretend that you have what you want already. For example, if you want friends, make believe or pretend that you have great friends now.

The moment you tip the balance by imagining and feeling that you have great friends now more than noticing that you don”t, you will have great friends.

This simple formula applies to everything.

Day 77

Man is what he believes.

Day 80

Ancient wisdom dating back thousands of years gave us the truth about gratitude. Every single religion speaks of giving thanks. All the sages and saviors of the world demonstrated the use of gratitude in all their teachings. The greatest human beings who have ever lived showed us the way with gratitude, and by their example became shining lights in our history.

Surely this is why Einstein said “Thank you” hundreds of times every single day.

Day 82

The effective use of affirmations depends entirely on how much you believe them when you say them. If there is no belief, then the affirmation is just words that have no power. Belief adds power to your words.

When you believe what you say, you just created it, no matter what it is.

Speak what you want

Day 83

“In every word you use, there is a power germ which expands and projects itself in the direction your word indicates, and ultimately indicates, and ultimately develops into physical expression. For example, you wish the consciousness of joy. Repeat the word “joy” secretly, persistently, and emphatically. The repetition of the word “joy” sets up a quality of vibration which causes the joy germ to begin to expand and project itself until your whole being is filled with joy. This is not a mere fancy, but a truth..”

Day 84

Whenever you remember, at any time of the day, say “I AM JOY”. Say it hundreds of times a day if you like. Say it often, but say it very, very slowly, giving equal emphasis to each word. I – AM – JOY. Feel the meaning of the words as you slowly say them, and experience as much of a feeling of joy within you as you can. Build on that feeling every single day. You will get better and better at it.

Feel that joy inside you more than you react to outside circumstances, and you will change the outside circumstances.

Joy attracts joy.

Day 87

You can turn your life into paradise, but the only way you can do it is to make the inside of you a paradise. There is no other way.

You are the cause, your life is the effect.

Bring the joy

Day 234

No person or power in the outside world can compare to the power you have within you. Seel the power within, as it knows the perfect way for you.

Day 235

You cannot bring what you want to you if you are feeling stress. Stress or any tension at all is something you have to remove from your sistem.

You must let the stress go – it is the only way you can bring what you want. The emotion of stress is saying strongly that you do NOT have what you want. Stress and tension is the absence of faith, and so to remove it all you have to do is increase your faith!

Day 249

How is the movie of your life going? Do you need to make any script changes on money, health, or relationships? Is there any editing that you want to do? Today is the day to make any changes to your movie that you want, because today”s changes will be screening tomorrow.

You are creating the movie of your life and it is in your hands – every single day.

Know thyself

Day 262

Beliefs are created by thinking thoughts over and over and over – until they become beliefs. Beliefs are a constant frequency that you are transmitting, and our beliefs are the strongest things that create our life through the law of attraction. The law of attraction responds to what you believe!

​That is why when you want to create something you must ask and believe, and then you will receive.

Day 268

You are receiving thousands of messages from the Universe every single day. Learn to become aware of this communication from the Universe, who is speaking to you and guiding you in every moment. There are no accidents and no coincidences. Every sign you notice, every word you hear spoken, every color, every scent, every sound, every event and situation is the Universe speaking to you, and you are the only one who knows their relevance to you, and what the communication is saying.

Use your eyes to see! Use your ears to listen! Use all of your senses, because you are receiving communication through them all!

Day 281

The reason that “now” is where all of your power exists, is because “now” is the only time you can think new thoughts and feel new feelings. We cannot think thirty seconds from now, or feel something two hours ago. We can only think NOW. We can only feel NOW. And so this moment right now is your greatest point of power.

The rest of your life awaits you!
