How You Look at It

"One man's problem is another man's solution."

Dr. Joe Vitale, author and speaker


As I see it. . . . . . . .

How you look at it    

A problem is only a problem until someone finds a solution.   

One person sees the problem and finds themselves emotionally handicapped by the situation. They find the problem to be so overwhelming that they feel that the problem is literary crushing them. The situations become so severe for them that they will get to the point to were they are having difficultly functioning.   

This type of person will see the problem controlling their existences and sees no way to take control of the problem. They are focusing all of their energies on the problem and never takes the steps to look for or finds the solution.   

We can look at another person that is experiencing the same problem, but their approach to the problem takes on a difference prospective.  

They look at the problem and will immediately start to look for the best solution and will expend their energies on a creative solution.  

Once they have identified the problem they spend their time and energy on resolving the problem.  

As a proactive person they take the steps to control the situation and to create the desired outcome and to move pass the problem.   

How you look at it determines what you see. You either see the problem or you see the solution and are a world of difference between the two. The person that sees the solution controls the use of their time and focuses their energies on positive results. The person who sees the problem is reaction to the problem and not the solution.

Pretty much all of life is 'maybe." We don't usually know if something is good or bad until much later in time.

I like the saying from Yogi Berra - when you come to a fork in the road, take it.

Lou, I think a lot of it goes back to that half full/half empty cup.  My cup is always at least half full if not more.

Lou-it's a little like seeing the glass half full or half empty, isn't it.

Lou, couldn't agree with you more.  I'm usually the eternal optimist.  Positive energy works wonders!

Lou - you may remember the old management-by-objective mantra - there are no problems, only opportunities!  Thanks for sharing ...

Lou - great quote.  It is, afterall, so much better to take the "proactive" approach.  We only go around once, why spoil it by being down and gloomy!  :) Gail

Lou, and if hit with a problem that one cannot deal with alone, one solution would be to consult with a professional who can help!
