Do you believe that every problem has a solution ? 50% of the answers to every question is hidden in the question itself, similarly 90% of every problem’s solution is hidden in the problem itself. Our life will become dull without any challenges. A person having no problem creates new problem to make his life interesting. Our brain is always ready face new challenges but we people don’t understand and hates the problem. New problem creates new opportunities, so we should not run away from the problem but we have to boldly face and solve it.
How a Big Problem Arises?
Every person makes a mistake but few people rectify their mistakes. These small mistakes made by us transform itself to a major big problem. These small mistakes should be rectified immediately as numerous small mistakes add up to make a big problem.
Why this Happens?
We people are egoistic minded. We will never accept our mistakes but we love to blame others for our own mistakes. Instead of rectifying our mistakes we start quarrelling with others and make the the matter more complicated. Day by day this complications multiply and becomes a big problem. If you accept the truth and try to solve the problem, then it will vanish like a magic.
The Choice is Yours
Our brain is always restless. It has a tendency to function 24 hours a day. But our Brain’s function is aligned with our five senses. If you keep the five senses busy in doing something important, then it won’t wander here and there or search new problems. But how long? On an average we sleep 8 hours and work 8 hours a day. Remaining 8 hours we release our brain to search new challenges, either to make our life great or to make our life miserable. The choice remains at our own hands.
Now, let’s begin.
There are two kinds of problems in our life
2. Apparently permanent problems
1. How to solve a temporary problem?
What do you want? Do you want the world to control you? or you want to control the whole world? If you have the will to control the world then read the Dale Carnegie’s book “How to win friends and influence people” for better understanding. There you’ll find if you appreciate and acknowledge someone, he will surely favour you. The formula is simple, what you give to the world, you will get back. Instead of doing this, we criticize and condemn others and lose control over the world. This leads to rise of a temporary problem.
Mainly temporary problems are relationship complexities, minor health issues or financial crisis. We avoid to take responsibility. If you think “whatever is happening is due to my good deeds or my mistakes” then 90% of your temporary problem will end. You can’t change others but you can change yourself immediately and now. If you send positive vibrations, through your thoughts and behaviours, to others, then it will return to you in multiple fashions. In today’s world, we all are running to catch the false prestige and show off. We want to treat others as if they are are inferior to us. This egoistic feeling makes everything complicated.
Always remember, “Every problem is due to my own unseen mistakes of past and right now I am taking the responsibility to rectify it.”
Do not considered the matter emotionally or too seriously. Think that ” it is a game and I am making strategies to win this game. I am certain to succeed.”
A practical way to to solve problems
a) Identify the Game
Take a piece of paper and write
1. I am taking full responsibility to solve the problem.
2. The problem is…….
3. What are the 4 possible ways to solve the problem?
4. Can I share the matter to anyone who can help me to solve the puzzle ?
Name of the person / persons …..
5. What books and articles should I refer to dissolve the issue?
Google search result …………..
Name of the books and articles ………
Read those books and articles in detail.
6. Write the deadline when you want to to win this game
Possible date to win the game ……………….
Remember : Don’t write the reason why the problem has arisen as your mindset is solution oriented rather than problem oriented. In other words, focus on the solution not the problem.
b) Creating a Game Plan
Create a game plan according to the priorities. Write the steps you are are going to take one after the other. Don’t do the the task randomly, prioritise it and then start. Every night just before you sleep, create a daily mission list for making the next day a great and fulfilling day.
c) Taking Action According to the Game Plan
Simply planning a project won’t help you. You have to take charge of the game plan you have prepared. Don’t wait for the right moment to come as it will never come. Start taking action right now as tomorrow never comes.
c) How to solve Apparently Permanent problems?
Nothing is permanent in this world. We consider a problem as a permanent when we realise that this problem will take time and patience to solve it. Never forget that every problem has a solution. Time is a powerful ointment for our emotional and physical wounds. Some apparently permanent problems vanishes automatically as the time passes away.
We have the habit of naming the apparently permanent problem as Big problem. Our thought process will define our destiny, so never consider any problem as big. You have to think in a different way, that “the life has challenged me but I am ultimately going to win this challenge. I will make great strategies to succeed over the crisis. I have the ability to solve any challenges of my life.” This mindset is capable of solving any issues of your life.
If the challenges are big, then its outcomes too would be big. This life throws challenges upon us. If it is a big challenge then the life expects more from us to give more to us. You are lucky that the life is forcing you to be more competitive and strong, emotionally as well as physically. So apparently permanent problems are good for us if we initiate ourselves to solve it with full commitment and dedication.
Solve the apparently permanent problems with the help of rules mentioned above – “A practical way to solve problems.” Or “Read Continuous Growth Process” in detail
