Don´t wish for less problems, wish for more skills.
Don´t wish for less challenges, wish for more wisdom.
The major value in life is not what you get. The major value is what you become."
- Jim Rohn
Are you having problems in your life right now?
Or maybe you are even facing a crisis or a huge setback at this moment?
Yes.....believe it or not.....everyone has problems. No one is exempt from having problems, setbacks and crisis in their lives.
Actually life is a continuous series of problems. They never end. The problems just keep on coming. Like the waves of the ocean.
The only break you might get in this continuous flow of problems it an occasional setback or even a crisis.
So life will be problems and then a crisis.
After you solve and get out of the crisis, there will be new problems and then another crisis.
Just like the waves of the ocean.
In life things are going to go wrong.
We cannot avoid or control problems and setbacks in life.
But what we can do is not to allow ourselves to become upset or angry.
Instead deal with the problems or the crisis.
Learn from it and then pick yourself back up.
How do you respond to a setback or a crisis?
How do you deal with a problem?
Do you look for the solution to the problem?
Or do you allow yourself to become upset or angry when something goes wrong and then you whine and complain and blame others for your problem or crisis?
When you are having a problem or in the middle of a crisis....always look for a solution.
Another great idea is to look for something good within the problem.
Usually there will always be something good that you will benefit from.
Seek the valuable lesson in very problem, setback, crisis or obstacle.
You will find that there will be a lesson for you to learn.
Learn the lesson that the problem is providing and it will allow you to be a lot smarter the next time something happens.
Look at the biggest problem that you are facing today and then ask yourself.......
What is this problem or this crisis trying to tell me?
What is the lesson that I need to learn?
Your biggest problem today might be the biggest gift that you have ever received.
Because it may contain within it the lesson that you need to be successful in life.
This lesson might transform your life, if you are willing to look at the lesson instead of blaming others and complain about it.
By facing and overcoming your problems and your crisis, you will grow stronger, wiser and more confident.
