“The best years of his life are those in which you decide your problems are their own bosses. Do not blame her mother, the ecology or the president. You realize that you control your own destiny.”
“Problems are to the mind what exercise is to the muscles, they toughen and make strong.”
Norman Vincent Peale
“Every problem has a gift for you in your hands.”
Do you have a problem in your life right now?
If so, maybe these six quick tips can help you solve a little easier.
1. First, ask yourself: Is there really a problem?
Often created problems in our own heads – as I said a bit a few days things can be easier than you think – they are not out there in reality. So relax a little. And to think if this is really a big problem.
Is it something that matters in 5 years? Or even in 5 weeks? Life becomes so less stressful when you stop making mounds mountain (or just nothing).
2. Accept it.
By accepting that the problem exists and stop resisting then also fail to put more energy into the problem and “feed.”
Now there’s only (well, more or less, you can still feel a bit down about it). You can use the energy that has fueled the problem – the energy that probably made the problem seem bigger than it was – to find creative solutions to the challenge.
3. Ask for help.
You can ask people for advice on what to do and what they did in similar situations. But you can also ask for more practical help. You do not have to solve all the problems on their own and sometimes it feels better to have someone by your side, even if only for emotional support.
If you just ask people may often be willing to help.
4. Use 80 percent of their time to find solutions.
And only 20 percent, to complain, worry and complain. You can not always be easy, but focusing your energy, time and thoughts in this way is much better for you and others to do the opposite.
5. Divide the problem into smaller parts.
Solve a problem that can sometimes seem overwhelming and impossible. To reduce anxiety and think more clearly the problem of breaking down. Identify the different parts that compose it. Then to find a practical solution that can take for each of the parties. Use the solutions.
They can not solve the problem immediately. But these solutions can start and could solve some parts of it.
6. Find the opportunity and / or lesson in the problem.
I found there is almost always a positive side to a problem. We may alert a great way to improve our business relationships. O teach us how our lives are perhaps not as bad as we thought.
Find the most positive part of the problem is reducing its negative emotional impact. You can even start to see the situation as a great opportunity for you.
When you are faced with a problem, ask yourself:
What’s good about this?
What I can learn from this?
What I can find hidden opportunities within this problem?
