Man is condemned to be free; because once thrown into the world, he is responsible for everything he does.

Dealing with the problems

The more you learn from your problems, the more effective you become at dealing with them. The more you learn from a problem, the less likely it is to trouble you again.

When a difficult problem comes along it can be easy to feel sorry for yourself. Yet pity, whether from yourself or others, is not what will help the situation.

What will help is a positive, informed response. What will help is effective action.

At first, go ahead and feel bad about the problem. Then make the choice to transform that intensely bad feeling into powerful positive energy.

Problems can get your attention and motivate you, so let them. Problems can teach you, so learn everything you can.

Choose to be positively motivated, to learn, and to respond with action. Be fully determined to move forward, and you will.

— Ralph Marston
