“The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude about the problem.” – Captain Jack Sparrow
Who does not have a problem in this world? Each and every single living being face problems. Once you understand how to face the problem and take it as a challenge, you will be successful without any doubt. Here are some points that will help you understand how problem solvers are successful. Hint – it is their attitude towards the problem.
Problem solver are clear-headed
This does not mean that they do not have doubts. They have much more doubts in their big brain, then the normal person, but they choose to be perceptive and look at things from every angle. This makes them good decision makers and helps them solve the problem effectively.
Problem solvers clear misunderstandings
They do not want to get engaged in misunderstanding for a long time. Most chaos occurs because of miscommunication and peoples’ way of thinking they are always right. Problem solvers don’t try to be always be right, they try to be clear. This skill makes them closer to the people around them and helps them assign responsibilities effectively. This makes them a true leader.
Investing energy and not wasting a single bit of it
This kind of people do not waste a single bit of energy. They save their energy like money in their bank. They get rid of negative vibes and narcissism as quickly as possible and invest their energy in positive vibes only. In fact, they know how to be positive even in a negative situation. This saves their time and improves their productivity.
Understand the root of the problem
They believe a quick fix is not effective for the long term, so they:
- go in depth and find the root of the problem,
- define it clearly,
- find the cause of the problem,
- ask themselves how and why the problem arose, and
- then find all the possible solutions.
This makes them think critically and creatively.
Trial and error is their key to the success
They are not perfectionist. They believe everybody makes mistake and a smart man makes a mistake, learns from it, and never makes that mistake again. Thinking of a solution but not applying the same can be stupidity. Problem solver keeps trying even if they fail, which makes them dedicated and efficent.
Practice and solution oriented
Problem solvers do not overwhelm themselves by reacting to thoughts about the future when problems occur. Instead they focus on the present and start thinking out of the box. They practice the same for all kinds of circumstances.
“Do not blame the world. Find a solution” – Sri Chinmoy
Like an African proverb – If you are not a part of the solution, then you are a part of the problem, focus on solving problems and not creating one. Somehow if you create one, do not worry but try your best to solve it.
If the above points matches with your character then look at the mirror and tell yourself – “You are Awesome”.
