Problems are a Fact of Life   

“Problems are not stop signs,

they are guidelines.

Robert H. Schuller, author   


As I see it . . . . . . .


Problems are a fact of life


At one time or another we all have to face the problems that come into our lives. The problems can have the potential of becoming overwhelming or merely a blip on the meter.


How you address a problem becomes critical in successfully resolving the conditions that you encounter.


You attitude has a significant impact on how you view a problem and in what steps you’ll take to successfully resolve it.


When a problem is viewed as overwhelming a person can become paralyzed by what they perceive as the sheer size of the problem. Break a big problem down into manageable pieces and work on the most important pieces first.


In breaking a big problem down into smaller pieces you’re able to take what seemed to be overwhelming and manage your efforts to create a number of successes outcome in the smaller pierces.


With a persistent effort and time you will create successful forward momentum and by breaking a big problem down and in managing the small pieces. As you do you will resolve the big problem one small pierce at the time.


Problems are fact of life, how you manage them makes all the difference.

Absolutely, and that is the number one reason people hire agents is their experience in dealing with the problems.

Hi Lou, I think that when it comes to our problems, you're right, it is all about your attitude and how you decide to deal with things.

Hi Lou, we definitely should not allow problems to stop us from achieving our goals although we may have to take a different route to get there.

Absolutely, Lou.  It's often overwhelming when we take the problem head on.  As you said, it's best to break it down.  Good advice!

Problems can be stop signs, but for the true optimist they are a caution warning to change paths! Enjoy your day!

You are so right - if we see them as small (no matter how big) we can usually muddle through.
