Do You See Problems or Opportunities?

When we talk about problems, we have to identify whether or not we really have one says Dennis Mannering from "Attitudes Are Contagious: Are Yours Worth Catching". He goes on to say that a problem for one person may not be a problem for another. He's observed people in similar work situations only to find that one is vibrant and energized by the challenge of their work and the other is stressed out because of the perceived insurmountable problems that they have to deal with on a daily basis. The difference?

ATTITUDE!

Furthermore, Mannering explains that problems give you a chance to live, grow and improve. Every problem is an opportunity to grow and learn. That is the only way to look at problems. No one likes problems any more than the next person, but they happen. So why not take a positive approach to them? Think to yourself, every adversity contains the possibility of an equivalent or great opportunity and every problem contains the seeds of its own solution. You will never find that seed if you allow yourself to be overwhelmed by the circumstance.  Attempting to solve problems with a POSITIVE ATTITUDE will help you grow stronger and smarter than you are today!

Personal Application:

- With what situations, in what circumstances, or with what people do you view challenges as problems rather than opportunities? What practices can you put in place today to see adversity in a positive light and act accordingly?
