Problems are part of our lives. Nevertheless, many wish for a problem-free life. They try, if at all possible, to avoid problems. Why is that so? Because problems are associated with negative feelings for them. Problems startle us in our comfort zone and create a state of tension. Problems challenge us: We need to make a decision, get into action, maybe do something we don't like doing.
When do we even have a problem? Mainly when we are dealing with one of the following two situations: We are experiencing something that we do not want or we want something that we do not yet have. So we want to eliminate an unpleasant condition or bring about a pleasant condition. If we mainly want to have our peace in life, we find both annoying.
But there is no growth without problems. We are designed to constantly develop ourselves, to develop our abilities and to develop our potential. But that only works if we are confronted with challenges. Either we create these challenges ourselves by setting ourselves attractive goals or the challenges come from outside because we have not done just that. When we creep into the comfort zone because we simply practiced business-as-usual every day and hoped that everything would just go on like this, we sometimes need an external impulse to get us moving again.
Therefore my suggestion: Welcome the next problem joyfully, because this is a sure sign that you are facing a new growth spurt! But of course the problem should not last forever. We should mobilize our forces to get out of the problem. And which way out?
Quite simply: The way out of the problem always leads right through it. So it does not help to close your eyes, to sweep something under the carpet or to avoid the problem. So let's first accept that we have a problem and look him hard in the eye. Then we think with pen and paper about what decisions need to be made and what needs to be done to solve the problem.in most cases we find a way - even if it is unpleasant. Helmet on and through!
And in the few cases where there is nothing we can do, we can still change our attitude to the problem. We gain a new perspective and find out what positive aspects are in it and what we can learn from it. If you really see no alternative courses of action and realize that there is nothing you can do for yourself at the moment, then you can still do something for others. You can help others in a similar situation.
We at strachowitz.com are currently also in an unpleasant situation. The European Court of Justice's recent ruling on data protection makes running a fan page on Facebook a dangerous business. The court decided that the operator of a fanpage will be held liable for the possible data protection violations of the platform. This can lead to severe fines of up to € 5,000 per case. Therefore we have decided to close our fanpage on Facebook shortly.
