No problems

If you don’t want to be burdened with problems, then don’t create them. Instead, use the exact same circumstances to create positive possibilities.

Whether or not something is a problem depends on the way you respond to it. As such, you can choose a life filled with problems or a life that’s free of them.

Certainly there are difficult and challenging situations that come your way on a regular basis. But is there anything to be gained by turning them into problems?

Choose instead to transform those difficulties and challenges into opportunities. Know that there is always a realistic and workable way, and commit yourself to finding it.

Rather than being weighed down by problems, you can be energized by possibilities. Instead of fighting against what you don’t want, you can be working toward what you most sincerely desire.

Free yourself from problems by never creating them in the first place. Focus your energy on the positive possibilities and bring the best of them to life.

— Ralph Marston
