Love Your Problems
“The game of life is a lot like football. You have to tackle your problems, block your fears, and score your points when you get the opportunity.” – Lewis Grizzard
My Economics Teacher in Secondary School was a practical man. While teaching us that man’s needs are insatiable, he added a thought we considered profound: “Those who retire into a life of idleness die a lot faster than those who retire but keep active. The idle brain begins to wither because it stops experiencing challenges.”
Are you currently facing problems? Count it joy, because they’re guidelines for progress and not signs of regression. When you remember the last time you successfully overcame a significant challenge, you’ll recall the joyful satisfaction that came with it.
Such, my friend, is the structure of life. Your challenges are meant to keep you relentlessly on the move, thereby making your life more exciting and your brain exercised. Every problem you encounter is designed to keep you energised.
One thing is clear. Within every problem you encounter is the seed of its solution. Without problems, man is without seed, without seed man is without life.
