The next time you face a problem, stop yourself for a moment before judging the situation and look at how you can make it work in your favour. Some might think that it is a tall order but nonetheless every bit possible, with a conscious effort and a little bit of practise. The more you do so, the easier it will get. Do not be discouraged by it. Instead use it to your advantage. Let that old you, who would avoid problem like a plague or break down by them, rest in peace. Start with the things that you have control over. The rest will eventually fall into place. Always remember that every problem is a well disguised potential opportunity. The first step, is to open your mind.
