“Life has taught me that everywhere (every place) whether good or bad can never be your place”.

There is a place for every one of us in life no matter what anybody may think and notwithstanding how we may feel.  Looks could be deceiving at times likewise feelings. No one can possibly displace you if you are in your right place; in fact, you will become the leader there has never been in that place while attracting accolades, envy and jealousy. You where not born to be a misfit neither were you born to be a failure. Notwithstanding, failure occurs sometimes to force us out of where we are maybe because we are no longer supposed to be there or maybe to test our tenacity.

There is a place for you

Most of us focus on appearance more than we should. Many of us go with the bandwagon. The place is bad does not mean it is not the right place for you to be and vice versa. It could be signaling you that there is a great opportunity to be taken advantage of. Most problems come with an inherent opportunity. If we are not sensitive enough to see the opportunities within us, we may lose out of our rightful place. A farmer once sold out his only possession which was his farmland for a few pieces of silver and traveled to a far country in search of diamonds not knowing that the farmland he so neglected bore the largest diamond mine of all time in the whole world. Likewise did a professor sell his boiling kettle to a chemist without knowing that that boiling kettle will one day become the origin of the worlds finest and most sought after soft drink brand (Coca Cola). Don’t move along with the bandwagon mentality, it could be destructive in the end. The place might look so nourished and promising, mind you, it could be a trap to lure you out of your rightful place.

Every star shines in its own socket, so, locate your own socket and shine like the greatest of stars. Don’t be so rigid. Change when you sense the need to. Who you are and where you are will determine what you do and what you become. Where you have is better than what you do not have yet. Strive to be who you want to become. Don’t act because others are acting or because somebody is asking you to. No one can live your life better than you can. You are better than you think. Live as the King you are born to be. Get off sight to gain insight. Your decision matters if you are to find your rightful place.

Problems Reveal Genius

Learn from the experience of a Leader

Problems are servants. They help you grow and lead to better things, both within your organization and in your life. To resist them is to avoid growth and progress. Embrace and get the best from the challenges in front of you. And understand that the only people with no problems are dead.

An unhappy customer yelling at you might seem like a problem. But to a person thinking like a leader, that scenario is also an opportunity to improve the organization’s processes to ensure that doesn’t happen again. So the problem has actually helped to improve the company.

An interpersonal conflict at work can seem like a problem. But if you think like a leader and use the circumstance to build understanding, promote communication and enrich the relationship, the problem has actually made you better. It has been fodder for your growth and served you nicely.

An illness or a divorce or the loss of a loved one might seem like a problem. Sure it’s painful (been there, done that). But I’ve been shaped by my saddest experiences. They’ve brought me depth, compassion and wisdom. They’ve made me the man that I am. I wouldn’t trade them for the world.

Is your problem like a lion

Problems reveal genius. World-class organizations have a culture that sees problems as opportunities for improvement. A mistake is only a mistake if you make it twice. And world-class human beings use their stumbling blocks as stepping stones. They use their failures to bring them closer to success. They don’t see problems. They see possibilities. And that’s what makes them great.

Champions are never chosen from the ranks of the untested. You must battle ready if you want to matter much in life. Don’t think of the star you are waiting to become without thinking of the scar which will become your mark from the battle to stardom. Thus, you can never be a warrior without actually going to war. Its better you have the scar and become the star than be scarred. When the going gets tough, the tough will keep going. Anything what defending is what dyeing for.

Note this, “the person who sees an obstacle as a challenge is more likely to overcome it than the one who sees the same as a problem”.

Staying Positive through Tough Times

One of the toughest challenges life throws at us is staying positive through tough times in our lives. It is a test to stay positive in order to find solutions to those things that are making our life hard or a living hell. However, it is by staying focused and positive that we are able to overcome the difficulties in our life that at time may seem impossible to overcome. It is not easy to stay positive under adverse conditions, but it can be done.

The first step in staying positive through tough times is actually pinpointing what the adverse thing is so it can be eliminated from our lives completely. This will not happen over night. Negative situations take a toll on a person emotionally, physically, spiritually and mentally after a while. It can immobilize a person from being productive. What happens are negative or adverse situations become part of our subconscious mindset so our conscious actions react in a state of negative action instead of positive action to change our adversities. The subconscious thoughts tell the conscious mind there is no way out of the adversity and you are to settle in it.

This is how negative mindsets work. They set in and overtake any possibility of finding or fighting for positive answers to your problems. It is suggested that if you are the type who finds it difficult to remain positive under difficult circumstances, that you write your situation down on paper first so you can see it. Once you see it on paper, you can then look for ways to alleviate the adversities you face. Researching solutions is one of the best ways to change negatives into positives. Many times when we are in trouble we think we are the only one in the world with that particular problem. In reality, when you research you find out that others have similar or identical situations to yourself. This, first of all lets you know you are not alone. This can help you find the answers as well as how others are dealing with the same situation as yourself. This, in itself, is a positive step to know that you are not alone in your plight. Negativity thrives on isolation.

Being positive is one of the best attributes a person can have in this life. It keeps one pro-active not to accept the adversity that is occurring in their life at the time. It activates your inner strength to overcome the odds that are stacked against you. Staying positive through tough times also allows you to remain in control of yourself and your situation in spite of the negative conditions around it.
