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.
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
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.
