Have you ever wondered how other people deal with their problems? Any professional who has found success in what he does follows various motivation methods. Still, one thing is true for all: they have a mindset of finding the positive within the negative.
Rather than seeing the problem as a burden to their growth, it fuels them to become more. They turn their challenges into opportunities for learning and improvement. In a way, they are left to become better versions of who they were before the problem came along.
This may seem like a simple case of mind motivation, but it comes with several benefits.
First, it reduces the stress that comes with the problem because it is viewed as a learning opportunity.
Second, the problem becomes less intimidating because it is viewed from a more positive perspective.
Third, it allows you to think fast on your feet. Instead of wallowing in sadness, you learn to deal with the problem head-on.
Fourth, it helps you to think critically, breaking the problem down into its parts, and analyzing it based on its chances of recurrence can help you figure out how to engage with it.
Finally, it helps you grow. Problems in the future won’t even matter anymore because you know exactly how to deal with them.
Unfortunately, there is no magic potion or pill that will turn everyone into a positive thinking machine. You have to want to adopt this kind of mindset. Unless you do, you will never be able to move on from your pessimistic habits.
Is it possible to make this change in this lifetime? It is. As long as you continue to make an effort and extend your patience, you will be able to make it happen.
Everything begins with the first step that you take to deal with the problem. No matter how many motivation ideas or techniques you read about, if you don’t help yourself and actually take action, it’s never going to work out.
How do you deal with your problems?
Maybe you quit your job, break-up with your partner, or simply teach yourself not to care. You do anything to get yourself out of the situation, but your solution does not involve solving the actual problem.
You pretend that it does not exist at all, but behind your mind, you are worried about it. You choose to think about something else, pretending that the problem doesn’t exist.
Some people resort to drinking alcohol for comfort. There are others that turn to food. Some turn to drugs or other illicit activities to fill the emotional voids within them.
You rant, you moan, you lash out all your anger towards other people. You feel resentful for being in a complicated situation. You tell other people about your problem, but you refuse to take any kind of help.
There is nothing wrong with doing any of these things. You don’t have to feel guilty for doing one or the other. Sometimes, doing these can help you relax. For example, talking to someone about your worries could really help you feel a bit more at ease.
However, if you are doing any of these to avoid the problem, then you limit your capacity to make that positive change in your life. How do you make that mental shift then?
Whenever you feel sad, lonely, anxious, or depressed, avoid thinking of it as a problem. Take it as an opportunity for learning.
That is where it all begins.
A part of effective employee motivation techniques is to inspire a shift in their way of thinking. Instead of locking themselves in the concept of drowning in problems, it is essential to provide help in uplifting their spirits.
When you think of a problem as a learning experience, it will change your life in more ways than you can imagine.
No matter how painful it is, allow yourself to feel it. Truly make yourself feel the pain. Allow yourself to go through the sadness. As you feel everything, don’t think of how difficult it has made your life. Don’t worry about how you are going to solve the problem.
Instead, think of it as an experience. Take comfort knowing that you aren’t alone. The solution doesn’t have to come easy. Just let it sit for a while until your head is clear.
That is all there is to it -- an experience. You have to go through it because it aims to teach you a valuable life lesson.
Even though it might not feel right or it may feel uncomfortable, that’s not the real issue at all. Open your heart and explore all the pain. Accept it without any judgments. You will find peace in the experience and will hopefully learn something new.
From where you are, learn how to take action. It may come in different ways. You may choose to love the experience or love the person who is hurting you. Maybe you decide to love the world or take a step forward to improve your situation.
Maybe you can choose to be silent. Listen with your heart and be still.
Whatever action you choose to take, remember that it all begins with what you feel. Be at peace with the experience. Open your heart to the potential lessons. Soon, you will see the light at the end of the tunnel.
