3 Simple Steps To Solving Problems
You can move beyond your stuck states by contemplating all the possible consequences of your own particular situation.
What is it that you want to work in your life?
What inner obstacles prevent you from achieving the successful outcome you desire?
Once you have confronted your own fears, pulled the emotional skeleton's out of your mental closet, then you will be ready to take stock of your current situation, look at it objectively, and try out new strategies.
You may have to pull on a few resources to manage the situation.
Thus, there are several stages of problem-solving.
First, get clear on your vague fears and imaginings. Bring them out in the open. Confront them. See what is really going on. Unless you can ask the right question, which comes from getting the right perspective on the issue, you will not be able to start looking for the right answer.
Second, once you have some inner clarity, freed from emotional congestion, look at your problems objectively, empirically. Ask yourself, "What needs to happen here to make things work out?" Ask an objective, matter-of-fact, how-to question? Avoid subjective, why questions.
And third, apply what resources you can harness to resolving your problem. Make a list of all your resources. This includes people you can query or books, articles, or audio-video equipment you can learn from.
Above all, find your way back to faith in your situation. When you believe in yourself, when you can rekindle the flame of hope in your heart, when you can reanimate your brain and your nervous system - then the creative solution to your problem will arise. Once you clear the vague, illusive, obstructive emotional blocks, your mind will function clearly and well.
Once you confront a problem head on, you're halfway there to resolving it. Turning your back on problems, avoiding them, and procrastinating only makes them more substantial and terrifying. Once you face your fears, you can begin to solve your problem. Once you have brought your fears to light, courage returns, and with courage comes hope, and with hope, creativity, boldness, and magic.
