Problems, Problems, Problems

How many times have you found yourself saying, or heard someone else saying, “It just seems to be nothing but one problem after another”?

And how many times have your or someone else responded by saying, “They’re not problems, just challenges”?

To be honest I’ve never really liked that statement, “They’re not problems, just challenges“. I’m not entirely sure what it is about that statement that I’ve never really liked, but I do know that there are times in everyone’s life when some things are definitely problems and not challenges!

As far as I’m concerned, some problems can be challenging, but not every challenge is a problem! I hope that makes some kind of sense to you!

Whether you prefer the word “challenge” to “problem“, try not to be problem minded…be solution minded. After all if we go looking for solutions we usually find them, so surely the same can be said of problems…if we go looking for problems, we will find them!
