What is a problem?
Answer: A problem is an obstacle, impediment, difficulty or challenge, or any situation that invites resolution; the resolution of which is recognized as a solution or contribution toward a known purpose or goal. A problem implies a desired outcome coupled with an apparent deficiency, doubt or inconsistency that prevents the outcome from taking place. (Source Courtesy: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Problem)
This is how some technicalities have made our thinking so practical that we never try to think beyond this. Even the smallest thing has made us go to the technology to find out what it means and this way we have stopped believing in ourselves and just relying on what is generally accepted in the world. So i just thought that why not we take this in a different perspective and just brood over it for a while in an optimistic manner so that whenever we feel we are surrounded with so called PROBLEMS, we can get out of them easily.
Trying to relate each letter and explaining how it can be useful 🙂
P-Perseverance: We know that in life whatever happens with us can also happen with the rest too, but still we always crib about our own individual situations and feel we are the only one suffering. The fact that instead of wasting energy in crying about them just believe in yourself and find a way to overcome it. A self-determined person can win over every possible situation he/she faces in life. So this is the most important and prior factor which one has to keep in mind while living a gifted Life.
R-Resistance: There is a point in everyone’s life where one feels like giving up, the moment when we feel like No, not anymore. But actually if we see that if we just resist for just a while the destination was just about to be reached and as we gave up we lost the race. I am sure most of you would be agreeing on this and would have faced this, that at some point of time in Life you just lost it because you gave up just at the second last point. Right?
O-Obsessions: Basically where do we really find problems? When we are so much obsessed with things, possessions, relationships, fights, studies, work-life balance and many more. We always run behind all these so much and try to prove ourselves better than others, try to make everyone feel we are the best, trying to obtain maximum amount of possessions and most of our life goes in running behind these forgetting the real purpose of Life being spreading Love.
B-Bend: The main glitch starts when we start being too Rigid. The quality of being flexible is something always looked upon. You might have noticed that the person who is more prone to changes always remains happy and contended with what he/she has and can adjust in every kind of situation because he/she is always prepared to be surviving no matter what happens. So try to have a USP like water, become a shape where you are kept and you will find it easy to live and move on.
L-Luck: Believe it or not, but we have always been a bit dependent on luck factor and its not completely false, happens because those who are blessed, those whose intentions are true and those who have been selfless receive some things in time as they deserve it because of being human. You ought to be true to your self to have a luck factor on your side. This has been faced by me personally, because sometimes or many a times i have got things at times which i feel i just asked for and Supreme made it happen some way. So all is in the head and as the quote says “God helps those, who help themselves”. So after you at least see around if some one needs a helping hand and you are capable enough to lend and make someone’s Life easy and smooth.
E-Expectations: Aah! Now comes one of the most most important factor which as we say is the root cause of all the PROBLEMS. Now a days just a glance on this word makes us feel feared that it would lead to some cursed situations but the reality is that expectations when followed by unrealistic actually makes it a real problem. It’s no bad to expect because this is a human birth and we all are bound to expect from Family, Friends, Relationships, Work mates, Boss and much more. This is totally natural but the thing is, it needs a realistic view on it and before having an expectation you need to have a feeling of at least giving twice the time you expect, then only you can achieve something you really want. A self-centric approach in Life would never help you. Take this advice that being a selfish person would lead you to more consequences always, so have a heart full of giving and you receive immensely.
M-Mood: This is one of the factor we all suffer a lot from. Don’t we? We always react according to our mood and always the things are taken in that perspective in which we want to take. One learning in my Life i have had, that don’t make decisions in anger and don’t make promises when you are happy. This is a surreal truth of life. Always try to have a balanced state of mind, which we due to situations sometimes feel out of it but then you need to be confined to your own mind. You cannot judge others when you are in a bad mood and don’t let others judge you when you are in a bad mood. Also don’t make up a perception of the other person only because you heard it from someone or you feel low and that person is making fun of you. The other person never knew what you have gone through so better don’t try to mix up situations with persons and vice versa.
This is just a different view to look over a PROBLEM so that whenever you feel you are in a problem you know what are the possible reasons and how you can over come it. I hope all of you would agree on each and every point of this because we all know there is not Life, not a single one which has never seen PROBLEMS.
