Why can’t a problem be an adventure?
Just think about it. Have you ever realized that each and every problem is a kind of adventure, one that presents new possibilities and choices? All of life’s adventures begin with a conflict, right?
For example, let’s consider ice skating. Ice skating is an adventurous sport. Those who don’t know how to ice skate see learning how to do it as a problem. Professional ice skaters on the television make it look so easy, but when the average person tries it, it’s soon evident that it’s more difficult than it looks. The learning process will have a lot of falls and sore muscles from hitting the ice.
It takes years to learn the perfect triple lutz, and until you get it right, you’ll probably continue to get hurt. What do most people do in a situation like this? They give up! They don’t want to face the challenges because they already feel like a failure.
The trick to success is learning to think about your failures in another way. The process of falling and failing again and again, picking yourself up each time… isn’t that an adventure? It’s a matter of finding enjoyment and excitement in pain in order to learn an adventurous sport. Each failure brings you closer to success.
A child learning to walk will try again and again until they succeed. For the child, it’s an adventure, so they make it happen. The most enjoyable things in life are filled with adventure.
Let’s say you take on a job or task, one that you’ve never tried before. You’re unsure that you will succeed, but you decide to give it your best. You might fail, but you can try again to find a solution that works. Isn’t this kind of endeavor an adventure as well?
It’s all about perspective. Our endeavors and failures don’t have to be disappointing if we look at them as just another step on the road to success. We should feel excited just thinking about new opportunities that can lead us to amazing places in our lives. If we see a tough problem as an adventure, every problem becomes an opportunity.
We must learn not to fear new problems; instead, we must use them to grow as human beings. Without failure, we won’t grow. Without problems that lead to failure, we won’t grow. You’ll be stranded at the same point in your life for many years to come until you learn to accept failure as a step on the way to your success.
Online business has many elements to it that most people don’t like to deal with. However, it’s necessary to accomplish unsavory tasks and learn about every aspect of it in order to generate ideas. If we look at newfound knowledge as an adventure, it becomes enjoyable to us. Seeking out this knowledge will help us find solutions to the problems we face.
Just imagine the type of person you will become from going through these challenges. If you can turn your problems into adventures, then you are on the path to personal and professional growth.
