1. Overcoming everyday problems

Everyday problems are a part of life.

Things go wrong. People let you down. You even let yourself down.

Sometimes it feels like the universe is conspiring against you. 

How do you deal with everyday challenges?

Do you get frustrated and stuck in the problem?

Or do you keep a clear head and focus on the solution. 

The ability to solve problems quickly and effectively is a key characteristic of successful people.

I want to share some of the ways I overcome everyday problems. 

They're easy to understand and simple to apply. 

More importantly they work. 

When you apply them you'll be able to overcome everyday problems without too much fuss. 

Let's dive in...


2. Ask for help when you need it

Don’t suffer alone. If you need help ask for it.

Sometimes problems seem a lot bigger than they actually are. 

When you ask for help you can get another perspective on your problems and how to solve them. 

Don't keep your problems inside and let them eat at you.

It's arrogant to think you can do everything yourself. 

Everybody needs help sometimes. 

Talk to someone you feel comfortable with. 

Isolate the problem and put together a solution.

When you write a problem out on paper or speak to someone about it you realise it's not as bad as you think.

There's always a solution.

Sometimes you can't see it, but it's there.


3. Take responsibility for the problem (and the solution) 

When you're facing everyday problems don't waste your energy blaming other people.

Accept where you are. 

If you screwed up, own it.

Take responsibility for the problem and the solution.

The only way to avoid having the same problem again in the future is to recognise what you did to bring it about.

Then you change your behaviour to avoid doing the same thing again.

It starts with taking responsibility.

4. Observe your thoughts and feelings

Staying mindful helps to avoid getting caught up in the emotional storm of your problems. 

Instead of getting caught in reaction, pause, breath, and see the problem for what it is.  

Problems can be easily solved with a rational mind.

It's not always easy to keep your composure amidst problems and crises.

Most anxiety comes from thinking about "what if" instead of "what is". 

If you can detach yourself form your problems you can see them for what they are.

Is your problem really a problem?

Could it be an opportunity?

It's a matter of perspective. 

How you choose to see your everyday problems is how they will manifest for you.

Your problems might be serious.

Your fear and anxiety might be justified.

Gaining control of your thoughts and emotions put you in a more resourceful state.

From that state you can better find the solutions to your problem.


5. Reframe the problem

Reframing your problems is asking yourself "what else could this mean". 

Find a meaning that serves you and allocate that to your problems.

You can change the meaning of a break-up from a painful experience to a blessing. 

A financial setback can become a gift if you learn something that will make you more successful in the future.

Everyday problems always have a lesson inside them.

It depends on what you choose to focus on.

This is how you reframe a situation from negative to positive.

When you're in a tough situation you can reframe it to your advantage.


6. Focus on self improvement

Self improvement is applying new processes and practices to your life to make yourself better. 

You can apply self improvement to one specific area or to your life as a whole.

The first thing to do is reassess your life. 

Decide what changes you want to make and develop a vision of who you want to be.

Set new goals that support that vision.

Read books. Travel. Meet new people. Work out and meditate.

There are many ways to self improve.

Build your capabilities and self confidence. 

Handling your everyday problems becomes easier when you're living as your best self. 


7. Be proactive not reactive

Anthony Robbins say's action is the cure all. 

when you have a problem don't sit and do nothing.

Don't get caught in the problem. Take action and fix it.

Being proactive is taking responsibility for the solution.

No one is coming to save you. It's up to you.

Decide you will triumph. Decide to be a winner. 

The most effective actions are small consistent improvements that accumulate over time. 

You don't have to solve all your problems in one giant leap.

Be proactive and take control of your problems and your life.

8. Use the problem to make life better 

What have you learnt from your problems? 

How can you use them to make your life better?

Turn your tragedy into triumph.

Share what you learn with other people so they can avoid making the same mistakes. 

Solving problems strengthens your character. 

As you become stronger your ability to handle everyday problems increases. 

9. Set new goals for yourself

Set goals that inspire you. Keep your focus on what you're moving towards.

When you have big goals your everyday problems become small in comparison. 

If you don't have any problems in your life you're playing it too safe.

Your goals are too small and you need to set new ones.

The most successful people aren't the most intelligent or the most talented.

They're people who set goals and keep moving towards them despite any problems that get in their way.

When you have no goals your problems are nothing more than problems.

When you have goals your problems become opportunities.

So what about you? 

What will you now do differently to overcome your problems?

What do you need to work on first?

If you cant handle stress you won't handle success.

There's no way to escape problems but you can overcome them.

When you're dealing with problems here's what you need to do...
