The Solution is in the Problem

Every time there’s a problem, there is a solution. There’s nothing that is impossible to solve, just a little time, effort, and hard work that can get the job done. As a little boy, I remember being tortured and teased because of the way I acted. Back then I didn’t understand that we were all trying to fit in and make friends with one another. One of the problems was the kids were being kids, but another problem was that I wanted everyone to like me without putting in any effort.

The quick example of my childhood’s most fondest memories (in my sarcastic voice), the event sounds really bad when I blame the other mean bad kids. When I blame myself for the incident, the incident doesn’t seem all that bad. I want to emphasize the fact when I took ownership and accountability of my own problems, the framework in my mind made this situation easier to solve. The solution became clear and the problem went away.

Taking accountability for the problems was extremely difficult at times. Nobody wants to bear the responsibility of problems that could potentially be complicated, or even worse tragic. Even though we may know our solution, going through the process still sucks and takes time.

In the pursuit of resolving your issues, stay positive and optimistic. I know we all have something to be grateful for despite life’s curve balls. We all have and go through problems. Life is unfair, and sometimes relentless in showing you that you’re not in control. But at the same time, I don’t believe you’re the only one diagnosed with your problem(s). Be humble and ask for help. Believe the problem is there to make you better, stronger, smarter and wiser. Don’t stop fighting. Your solution is in your problem.

I write this because my business is personal because this service is for the advancement of all humanity. My failures and successes are for your gain. No strings attached.
