How to Think About Problems

With only a few days left in 2021, I wanted to bring you a powerful message that's short, easy to digest and could be extremely helpful with whatever problems you face in 2022. Of course, I don't know what those problems will be (for either of us), but I do know the way in which you view them, and ultimately deal with them, will affect your personal growth.

This week, I want to challenge you to think of the problems you encounter as puzzles. Instead of having an anger-fueled meltdown, or a tearful self-pity party, analyze the problem as though it were a puzzle – then, make a plan and deal with it in an intentional way. Will this make the problem an unexpected joy? No. That will likely not be the case, but it can result in positive growth in all aspects of your life…spiritually, emotionally, and even financially.
