If we go through life without ever encountering any problems we’ll probably not only become complacent but life will get pretty boring. Nobody wants to encounter a problem but it’s by running into problems that create inspiration and motivation to solve the problem and improve the overall quality of life. A problem forces you to be creative and look at other avenues, options or strategies to move ahead that you may not have thought about if you never encountered the problem in the first place.
CAN PROBLEMS CREATE INSPIRATION AND MOTIVATION? THINK ABOUT IT!
MAJOR PROBLEMS HELP US BECOME BETTER PEOPLE
We have all heard the old saying ‘negative people face problems and positive people face opportunities’, it may sound a little corny but it’s definitely true. In my own life, I’ve seen in hindsight how coming across what seemed like a major problem or hurdle at the time has lead to wonderful awakenings within me that have helped me become a better person and allow me to take problems in my stride instead of worry about them like I once did.
PROBLEMS KEEP US MOTIVATED
Almost no problem is insurmountable, although it may not seem like that at first. Problems keep us motivated when we otherwise fall prey to laziness and by trying to solve the problem, we find inspiration as we work towards a solution. This is exactly why it’s always best to look at a problem for what it really is, a challenge. A problem in every instance is an opportunity for a worthwhile and important challenge. Overcoming the challenge will not only improve our external environment but help us grow internally as well.
PROBLEMS MAKE US TRUST THE UNIVERSE
The key to tackling a new challenge effectively is to let the challenge go, release any attachment you feel to the challenge and let the universe guide you when you trust that a solution will appear. The longer you persist in feeling that you must find the answer to this challenge, the harder it’ll be to see the correct path to take. It can be difficult to let go of something that’s a great challenge or what seems to be worrying you, but when you can let go, the answer will appear.
It’s not magic, it’s just the way the universe works. When you let go and trust in the universe, you’ll be guided to take the right steps at the right time. The universe will show you the way by giving you signs and be open to how these signs might appear in your life. Sometimes, the signs arrive in the strangest and most abstract of ways.
PROBLEMS FORCE US TO WAKE UP TO WHAT IS AROUND US
One of the greatest things that can come about when you encounter a problem is that it forces you to wake up to what’s around you, and as you work towards the solution to your problem, you expand your consciousness to new levels of awareness.
There’s no such thing as security in life, as much as you may hope or wish that there is, life is constantly changing and evolving and so must you. It’s through change that we grow and growth is the true purpose of our very existence.
How much and to what degree you change is entirely up to you. Some people embrace change and live extraordinary lives that push the boundaries of what we believe is possible. Some people fight change and as a result, they never allow themselves the freedom to grow and this often leads to unhappiness and eventual frustration.
If you can learn to look at a problem as a challenge and even get excited about it, you’ll experience so much more freedom in your life, and that freedom feeling will help you in promptly working through your problems with ease. The answer to any problem always lies within the problem, all you have to do is step back from it and you’ll be presented with the solution. Let go and trust in the universe and it’ll never let you down.
