Problems become solutions when seen as surmountable
challenges that can be faced with support and courage. Problems
can seem overwhelming and insurmountable when you are looking
at them in the big picture. But, when you break the problem
down into manageable sections, gather up the support you need
and collect your courage there is nothing you can't conquer.
Any problem can see impossible when you look at
it from a distance. You have to get up close to the problem,
dissect it and pull apart the pieces. When you deal with just
pieces of the problem one at a time, you can begin to see not
only how the problem can be solved, but also how the problem
can become an opportunity. I remember when I started my business;
everything that had to be done was overwhelming. The time, energy
and money that it was going to take seemed insurmountable. Because
I was passionate about what I wanted to do I didn't let any
of the problems stop me. I broke the process down into small
manageable pieces and focused on the next thing I had to do.
Over time the business took shape and what seemed like problems
in the beginning turned into opportunities.
As I am famous for saying, "You can do it
on your own, but you don't have to do it alone." Any problem
that you face will be easier to solve if you have support. This
may mean actual support with the problem or people who believe
in you and are cheering you on. Both are important and will
help to turn any problem around. When I started my business
one of the first things I did was hire a coach. This proved
to be invaluable. My coach had the practical experience I needed
and was a great cheerleader.
To face any problem you need courage. Courage
can sometimes be the most difficult part of the equation because
it can be daunting to face the problems head on. Courage, however,
is the one ingredient that you must have, the belief in yourself
and the fortitude to persevere. When you believe you can do
it you are halfway there.
Problems can seem insurmountable when you first
view them from a distance. But as you get closer and begin to
create a plan to turn the problem around, you will see that
the problem is not only surmountable but can turn into an opportunity.
