One of the most freeing moments in my life was when I truly understood that every problem in my life, was just that–MY problem. While others might play a part in it, the problem couldn’t exist or be MY problem if I wasn’t involved! It sounds quite simple, but we so often blame our problems on everyone else–or some circumstance beyond our control. We often do this when our problems are “big and scary,” as we don’t know how to face them.
The great news is that when we take ownership of a problem, we also inherit the power to problem-solve. Instead of waiting at the mercy of someone else to “fix things,” we can take control and fix things ourselves.
Your turn: Are you taking responsibility for the problems in your life or are you still blaming them on others and waiting for a magic solution?
Manmade solutions will make you stronger than magic solutions. Choose a problem and take ownership of it. Then begin to brainstorm how you can move forward. And don’t just brainstorm, ACT. If you need help, do this in a group to explore new ways of seeing the problem, fresh ideas, etc. Odds are everyone has a problem or two that could benefit from a fresh point of view.
Your affirmation: I am a professional problem-solver
