We all have problems and we tend to see them as a negative thing. I am here to say otherwise! If you had a life without problems it would be a very flat dull and boring existence. Problems are actually what spices life up. The way that I choose to see problems is as opportunities. Opportunities to grow, to think differently, to challenge myself to rise to new heights or to make changes in my life so that it is more in line with how I would like it experience it. As soon as you reframe problems as opportunities they cease to be scary and actually become quite exciting.
There are many different problems in the world and we all experience a mixture of them someone might get difficult relationships and eating problems someone else might get an eating problems and money problems. The top problems that we face are listed below
Lack of purpose
Most of you will be looking at problems that happen to you as if they come from outside of you. Someone does something to you, a life event happens to you and it appears to come at you from the world out there. You will tend to look for the solution in the world around you, a new job, a new partner, another Dr or cure and of course your lack of confidence is because of something that happened to you in the past. I would like to change where you are looking to find the solution. The actual source and answer to your problems is one and the same thing it is YOU! You might find this reality a little hard to stomach however I have witnessed it over and over again. A family moves to Botswana to get away from the crime and danger of living in SA only to be burgled within the 1st month of arriving. They were running away from a problem that they perceived to be external however they brought the creator of the problem with them themselves. I am not meaning to judge them and say that I am any better. I have my own fears that I have become a master at creating. The difference is that I know the answer to my problems is not outside of in in the world I know that it is inside of me. When I change myself I will change everything. This is why Mahatma Gandhi said “Be the change you want to see in the world” because change starts in one place and one place only within ourselves.
The real challenge is finding out how to meet your problems head on and have skills to be able use them as stepping stones to move upwards rather than sink under them. Look out for my new e-book which will support you in facing the problems you create.
