PROBLEMS

When choosing the life of fulltiming, problems do not just go away. Problems just come in different forms.

It is an inescapable fact of life that you can’t escape problems. For every action there is a reaction. Even when you are making the best choices, doing good things, other things happen as a result of those choices. Even the best of plans, nothing ever goes 100% as planned.

“You are doomed to make choices. This is life’s greatest paradox.” – Wayne Dyer

Realize that it’s your choices that create problems. Understanding that, it doesn’t mean that you are making bad choices. There will always be obstacles. Every undertaking brings obstacles. But worrying over these or complaining about what hassle they are is a complete waste of time and energy. Understanding that in every road life- problems comes with the territory. But no matter what, large or small – problems are simply something to deal with. After all, isn’t that what life is; A continual string of things to deal with. That’s the norm so what’s the problem?

Choose to love your problems. First, embrace the fact that there will always be problems; whether on the road or in a sticks and bricks house.  Problems are simply obstacles. In fact, that’s how you should view problems, as temporary obstacles. They are temporary because you will overcome them or at least get around them if you put forth the effort.

Therefore, if you approach your problems as opportunities to learn and grow, you can actually learn to love problems. That’s right, LOVE them! Why? Because problems are simple steps you take to climb to a higher level.  Every problem you defeat makes you stronger. It builds your “problem solving” muscles. The more you do this, the less any problem will rattle you and the better you will get at foreseeing a potential problem and will have better skills and knowledge to solve it.

Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it’s always your choice.” – Wayne Dyer
