PROBLEMS…EVERYONE HAS THEM
SOLUTIONS…EVERYONE CAN HAVE THEM
When problems hit us we are tempted to react “Why me Lord?” Some problems are a result of pure chance; some are created by others but most are of our own creation. Whatever the cause it falls on us to find a solution to make the best of them. The absolute worst thing for us to do is to do nothing, blame others and not take responsibility for a solution.
The importance of working on a solution is that it shifts our mind into thinking about what positive solutions are possible instead of wallowing in the negative of the problem. Every person I know is dealing with some sort of problem so we are not alone. The key is maintaining a positive focus in life no matter what you are facing. Positive thinking is “solution thinking”…which leads to reducing or eliminating the problem you face.
I’ve known a great many successful people and the more successful they are the more positive they are. The most successful people I’ve known did not get there because they had smaller problems. They got there by maintaining a positive attitude and focusing on positive solutions to very big problems. The bottom line is they were rewarded with big rewards for doing what each and every one of us must do with our problems.
The key in life is not to find some magical way to avoid all problems, it is to learn to deal with them quickly in order to minimize damage and to move on to develop and implement a positive solution.
Take a moment and look at the biggest problem you face.
1. ARE YOU doing something about it NOW?
2. ARE YOU FORGIVING others for their involvement?
3. ARE YOU TAKING RESPONSIBILITY for a solution?
4. ARE YOU focusing on POSITIVE SOLUTIONS?
Whether personal or business this formula applies. Whether a large or small problem this formula applies. Positive thinking applied to your problems will yield positive solutions!
