Have you ever been faced with a problem and stress at the thought of how to deal with the situation and get past it? I noticed last year that I developed a little habit when dealing with some issues in my life. Sometimes I’ll just think about it and say “I’ll figure it out somehow”. This usually followed by some solution to the problem eventually surfacing in the future. I marvelled at this and I try to use this approach as much as possible. If you’ve ever read “Rich Dad Poor Dad” by Robert Kiyosaki, one of the key lessons mentioned in the book is… Saying “I can’t afford it” shuts down your brain. Asking “How can I afford it?” opens up your brain and triggers your financial genius to come up with a creative solution. Always asking yourself how, opens up the brain to keep working to find a solution. It may be our natural tendency to become frustrated by situations that feel hopeless but by simply asking “How can I solve the problem?” allows us to be receptive to the Universe and figure out ways to solve the problem. According to Jim Rohn, to solve any problem, three questions to ask yourself are: First, what could I do? Second, what could I read? And third, who could I ask? There are many approaches to problem solving but for me, simply asking myself “How can I …?” or saying “I’ll figure it out” has been quite beneficial in helping me find solutions.
