“Problems are Passing Clouds!”―Professor M.S.Rao

“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” ―Albert Einstein

We all encounter challenges in our daily lives. Some people face them squarely and come out with flying colors while some people brood over them and lose their motivation. At times, they get into depression mode. Denis Waitley once remarked, “Don’t dwell on what went wrong. Instead, focus on what to do next. Spend your energies on moving forward toward finding the answer.”  Hence, what we must learn is problems are part and parcel of our life. Accept the fact that everyone has problems in this world. Some people disclose their problems while some don’t disclose them.

Brian G. Jett quoted, "Problems are like plants; you've got to get to the roots in order to prevent them from popping up again." Whenever you encounter problems, find out the root of the issue. Don’t get emotional. Separate your emotions from issues. Look at them objectively. Be cool and composed. Explore multiple options to come out of them. Don’t be part of the problem. Be a part of the solution. It is rightly said that below average individuals talk about individuals, average individuals talk about issues and above average individuals talk about ideas.  Hence, associate with the individuals who explore resolving the issues with their amazing ideas. They are part of the solutions, not part of the problems.

When you look at great leaders like George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr, Mother Teresa, and Nelson Mandela, they overcame many hardships with their grit and determination. They did not run away from problems. In contrast, they faced the problems squarely and came out with flying colors. The world salutes for their extraordinary and courageous leadership. Remember, if you are strong, you can bend the world; if you are weak, the world will bend you. Everything is there in your mind. Hence, be strong to bend the world rather than to allow yourself to be bent by the world.

Be bold to face the challenges. In the present world, what people need is courage to resolve the issues. Neither money power nor muscle power counts. What counts is your will power. Your level of success depends on your level of your courage. Higher the courage, higher the success! Remember, problems are passing clouds. They come and go away when you are courageous.

“Most people spend more time and energy going around problems than in trying to solve them.” ―Henry Ford
