Like a child you should always believe that everything is possible. The sky is the only limit for a child and young children are open to everything. They are closed to nothing. But a child often tends to be carried away by a childish response when he or she faces an odd at once. The same thing is repeated by a grown-up individual in a childish manner, “why have only I been placed in such a situation? It is not fair,” If you response is like this, the problem only gets reinforced, leading you to struggle hard to get over the problem, to find a solution. This struggle is the force which motivates us to move forward. Sometimes a problem may assume a bigger dimension than you expect and it may appear impossible to be overcome. If you are overwhelmed by the magnitude of the problem, it means you have given up before trying to solve it.
You should always approach the problem in a childlike manner asking yourself – “what could be good about this”? This approach will not let you think negatively and focus your mind on the positive aspects of the situation. Once your mind sets out in search of the positive aspects of the problem, there is no doubt that you will try to find out a solution. Unless you and your mind accept that there is a problem, a solution can never be found out. In search of a solution you think of various options and start the needed action.
In the words of Edgar Guest
There are thousand to tell you it cannot be done,
There are thousands to prophesy failure;
There are thousand to point out to you, one by one,
The dangers that wait to assail you.
But just buckle right in with a bit of a grin,
Just take off your coat and go it;
Just start to sing as you tackle the thing
That cannot be done, and you’ll do it.
Try to learn something from a problem and if you fail to solve it in the first attempt, treat your failures as a lesson and avoid our previous mistakes. never think that your failure is an end of your endeavour. Treat is as the beginning of your action towards the solution. Your failure can teach you more than your success can. Treat every failures as a yardstick for self-judgment. It is only by realizing your mistake that you can stop repeating your mistake. You can look forward to getting better results next time by self-realization. Life is all about learning.
People like Usain Bolt, the extraordinary sportsman, are born to remind us of the immense power of will. in order to achieve the enviable position of the fastest human on the earth he must have had to face many odds. But his success proves that he must not have felt like giving up. He must have treated all his failures as lesson, that is why he has succeeded in getting to the top in his area of action.
