Navigate your problems

“Problems are just unborn solutions”

-John Maxwell

Problems are never easy, and many people deal with their problems in their own way. The ones who seem to get through their problems a lot quicker usually have a slightly different view of what the obstacle is.

If we all took a step back and looked at the problems we’re facing… for me, many times (for me more often than not) I find that this mountain is not that big from the other side. I think getting through quickly and efficiently comes from the approach the problem is usually stands at a fork in the road.

This way:

This approach to problems will have many come up on it with full intention to destroy it, seeing it as the next step to get to where they want to be. With that attitude they somewhat know what their answer may look like. The problem itself is not really a problem it is life teaching a lesson to go to the next level. Just about everything you have is the result of a solved problem, the product was the solution. Name anything, and it solves some sort of problem, no matter how minor it was.

That way:

Another approach is to give up. What it was, was just too tough to deal with. Usually with this approach the problem never moves, and if it does, it moves to get bigger until you deal with it. Most of the time the problem is there to teach you. Not learning the lesson will result in you repeating the mistakes, and you dealing with the same old crap over and over again. We don’t want that.

The last is that other way:

The other way is that unknown “other way” where you don’t know where to go, or really bother to care, the thought is, “well, it might just take care of itself”, or, “I’ll just see what will happens”. Because I’m a procrastinator I try not to do this, but I do a lot. I have to encourage myself to make a decision to go this way or that, because that other way will have control of me and everyone involved in the circumstance.

I remind myself to the conversation between Alice and the Cheshire Cat:

  • “Would tell me please, which way I ought to go from here?”
  • “That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,” said the cat.
  • “I don’t much care where-” said Alice
  • “Then it doesn’t matter which way you go,” said the cat
  • “-so long as I get SOMEWHERE,” Alice added as an explanation.
  • “Oh, you’re sure to do that,” said the cat, “if you only walk long enough.”

How long are you willing to walk in some unknown direction?

At some point we have to face it, if too big ask for help, or turn tail and run.

I just want you to know that when we look close enough a the problem, really close by will be the solution to it. Help or no help we will find it when we get close enough to study and think of how to get around the obsstacle!

I believe in You!
