You cannot make yourself feel something you do not feel, but you can make yourself do right in spite of your feelings.

Inside the problem

You won’t solve problems by complaining about them. You won’t solve problems by running from them or shouting angrily at them.

To successfully deal with the problems, you must get inside them. Familiarize yourself with the problems, and you’ll find plenty of ways to work through them.

If life is not going well, identify one clear, specific outcome that would improve your situation. Then go to work and make it happen.

From a distance, as a looming, hazy concept, any problem will feel intimidating, overwhelming. What you must do is get inside, get details, get clarity.

March right into the problem, take a look around, and make note of what you see. Something you see will lead you to a strategy for making the problem go away.

Get inside the problem, and there’s plenty you can do. Get inside the problem, and you’ll find it filled with opportunities.

— Ralph Marston
