Free of the problem

It is painful, inconvenient, messy, awkward and complicated to deal with a problem. And the sooner you do it, the better.

Hiding from a problem, or running away, or denying it exists, does not free you from that problem. By avoiding the problem you only make it worse.

To be free of the problem you must acknowledge it, face it, and do something positive about it. Any other choice just delays the inevitable.

What problem has been troubling you, that you would like to free yourself from? Today, stand up straight, feel your power, and put that power to work.

Commit yourself to make the necessary effort that will create a beneficial resolution. Decide that it’s time to get beyond the problem, and do the work to make it happen.

Put an end to the worry, the anxiety, the wasted energy of avoidance and denial. Put your best capabilities to work, and be free of the problem through the power of your positive actions.

— Ralph Marston
