Problem Solve Problems~~~Susie Austin



“If you start to think the problem is


 ‘out there,’ stop yourself.


That thought is the problem.”


n   Stephen Covey


How many times have we thought and thought about a potential problem until it becomes an actuality or on the other side we wasted a tremendous amount of energy on a problem that never came to pass. Sometimes we have the tendency to concentrate on the problem until it becomes one.


How do we change this behavior? I believe the solution lies within our heads. If we make the decision to stop thinking about the problem does it go away? Of course not but obsessing about it will only make it worse. Remember the saying for every action there is a reaction? This holds true with problems as well. Keep a level head and problem solve instead of making it larger than it should be. We sometimes create monsters with our thoughts instead of finding solutions.


Today’s suggestion is to purposefully take a look at situations in our life and how to find solutions before they become problems. It will cause a lot less stress and you will feel great accomplishment. The thought process should be on all positive things as you have problem solved the problems which are not problems anymore.
