Things happen in life. You can’t stop things from happening. You can’t stop things from happening to you, but you can control how you manage them. When you are faced with a problem, do not think negatively about it. Think about how to make it work for you, not against you. Think about how you are going to change it. Think about what you are going to do to change the situation from negative to positive.
When it comes to managing a problem, the best thing you can do is to think positively about it. Do not worry about the problem, worry about how to make it work for you, not against you. In the words of Edgar Albert Guest, “When you’re up against a trouble, meet it squarely, face to face; lift your chin and set your shoulders, plant your feet and take a brace. When it’s vain to try to dodge it, do the best that you can do; you may fail, but you may conquer, see it through!” If you want to grow, that is what you should NEVER fail to do.
When you are faced with a problem, don’t run away from it. Running away from a problem makes it worse, not better. When you ignore a problem, it gets bigger, not smaller. So if you want a problem to go away, you MUST meet it with a greater power. The power within you.
