Drinking Problem!

Chike had a drinking problem and swore that he would correct it with sheer willpower. He had decided to walk straight past the pub without going in.

As he approached the doors he kept repeating to himself, “You can do it. You can do it.”

The pressure was tough, but Chike persevered, right past he went.

Fifty metres past and he congratulated himself, “I knew you could do it. You were great! Let’s go back and I’ll buy you a drink.”

“Every problem is a gift – without problems we would not grow.”

“Every problem is a gift –
without problems we would not grow.”
– Anthony Robbins
I really seriously doubt if i agree with Mr Robbins on this one.
Yes, problems make us strong and consequently most times we grow, but to insist that problems are gifts is what I won’t accept.
I refuse such Greek gift.
I will grow and have grown without problems.
Life is about facing and solving problems anyway.
May we never face problems beyond us and may we continue to grow in our lives without problems!  Amen.

#2. Stop running from your problems.

Stop running from your problems.

Face them head on. 

No, it won’t be easy. 

There is no person in the world capable of flawlessly handling every punch thrown at them. 

We aren’t supposed to be able to instantly solve problems. 

That’s not how we’re made. 

In fact, we’re made to get upset, sad, hurt, stumble and fall. 

Because that’s the whole purpose of living – to face problems, learn, adapt, and solve them over the course of time. 

This is what ultimately molds us into the person we become.
