Beauty lies in solving problems with a smile


“The problem is not that there are problems. The problem is expecting otherwise and then thinking that having problems is a major problem.” – Theodore Isaac Rubin

Nobody said life would be easy. It never was meant to be a cakewalk. Everybody is struggling to be more successful, to make the following quarterly earnings estimate, to get promoted to a higher post in their job, or to compete effectively. Come to think of it, there are several factors that lead to states of quandary in our lives. The beauty lies in solving these problems with a smile. To accept them and have faith that everything will fall into place soon.

From my personal experience I can say that problems are encountered nearly every day. However, only the strong ones are capable of shredding the ways of the world in order to prove their worth. I always knew that to be unique and tread on a different path I will have to do something unconventional. And then there came ‘Property Observer’. The launch of this magazine turned my dreams into reality. The rest is history.

A few ways to tackle problems and confront them before you dodge are:

  • Acceptance-

The sooner you accept what is served in your dish, the better it is for you. The best way to get rid of a problem is through it. Take your time and figure out what is required of you to get you through this. Identifying and acknowledging the key growth and evolution is a good way of understanding what to prioritize.

  • Express yourself-

To know how to handle unreasonable and difficult people is to truly master the art of communication. As you make use of these skills, you may experience less grief, your confidence will boost, you’ll have better relationships, and higher communication prowess.

  • Welcome change-

Transformation is inevitable. Learn to change with your surroundings. Whether we accept it or not, we all go through periods of change at some point. More often than not, we get so accustomed to things being one particular way that we feel worried and scared when things change. We only want certain things to be different, and other things we are hesitant to see change.

  • Cope with the problem-

Sometimes there is no simple way to avoid, minimize, or solve them.   We only see a portion of the bigger picture. Address underlying issues. Envision the situation working out for the best.

All said and done, we have different ways of looking at our problems and we solve them according to our own sensibilities. Some of us hold on to the problems so tightly that we often are carried away by them. When you’ve got more issues to handle than seems humanly possible, a good place to begin is by letting go of the things that you can’t change. Often we cling to situations like this, trying to find ways to rewind time. That’s not how it should be. Let go of your past. Better things are to come.
