The word “problem” has its roots in Latin and means “something thrown forward.”
I spent much of yesterday working on a particular problem I have been trying to solve. I came up with a plan of action and have focused on how I will feel when I have completed the plan. Had it not been for this supposed problem, I would not be looking forward to the abundance and freedom that will come as a result of the actions I will now take.
From this perspective, problems help us move forward, or grow. So as we improve ourselves, we don’t cease to have problems. We just get bigger, juicier problems. So what’s your problem?
