Problems - Positive Thoughts

Updated on September 29, 2009

This is the conclusion of Problems - Price for Progress.

To lead a positive life we need to address problems as they arise, find solutions. For every problem there is a solution and don't forget to find the good in the problem, as it is there. You just have to look for it.

      My 2 cents:

      Situations only SEEM like problems because we never see the big picture. (See my hub http://hubpages.com/hub/Bad-Things-Dont-Happen) For example: You get a flat tire and are late for work. Problem? What if it was September 11th and you were supposed to work in the World Trade Center. Wouldn't you thank God for that "problem"?

      That's what we all need is postive thinking in the face of problems. It isn't always easy when the burden seems to be too great but it is the best way to a solution.
