Today’s insight journey led me to the idea that it is better to focus on solutions rather than problems. I am certain that we all have heard that statement mentioned at some point, and depending on which side of that statement we have found ourselves, hearing it either invoked positive emotions or negative ones in us.
And to some of us, that statement may only be that, a mere statement. But for those of us who personally know what it is like to focus on our problems, as well as what it is like to focus on solutions, we know that greater success comes from concentrating on solutions rather than problems, because when we concentrate on our problems we prevent ourselves from taking notice of the blessings that surface for the purpose of helping us to deal with our problems. Yet, when we focus on solutions instead of problems, we leave ourselves open to additional opportunities that surface because of the approach that we use when dealing with the problems that come our way.
So, the next time that a problem rears its head, let’s not allow that problem to cause us to shift our focus from solutions. After all, problems are temporary, but solutions can yield results that last a lifetime. #lovebythedrop
