Focus On The Solution And Not The Problem


focus on the solution, not the problem

I think the reason why the problems we face in life stick around for too long is that we focus too much on them instead of focusing on their solutions.

If I want to solve a math question, I don't stay there lamenting about how large the question is or how difficult it looks or how lengthy the process to solve it entails. I only look at the
question to understand it and pick out variables to work with, then I get to work.

Once I've done that, I forget about the problem and simply start solving it. The only condition for the problem to be solved is that I start solving it.

Every problem in this world has it's own unique variables and can be understood. If you look hard enough, you will see all of them.

The only time we should spend on any of our problems is to properly understand it and pick out the variables we'd work with. After that, we have no more business with the question once we've started solving.

Some problems may seem too large and difficult for anyone of us to solve. Some may seem very hopeless, tedious and tiring, but the only thing that counts and gives us hope for positive change is our little attempts to solve it.

Some problems need everyone of us to contribute. Some others just need experts and experienced hands to solve it, but there are problems which cannot be solved by an individual or a team of experts.

These problems are those related to the broader concerns of all humanity and needs every one of us to solve a part of it.

Don't  think that these problems which involve all of us human beings should be solved by only you or by any single person.

If you think of it that way, you will give up easily because these problems concern life itself. Neither should you expect someone else to solve it when you alone cannot.

Our only hope to solve these very large problems facing us is to understand it this way: You are holding a part of the solution to that problem. Yes, the problem is huge, but if you solve your part, I solve my part and everyone solves their part, the pieces will one day be put together and we'd find out the big problem is solved.

What happens then if you think that you can do nothing about it or think that the situation is hopeless, or wait for somebody to solve it? The answer is that you don't solve your part. And not solving your part creates problems for everybody else.

On the grand scale, you're not helping matters change because it might be the part that you're meant to solve that will inspire millions of other people to solve theirs.

Your contribution might just be what another person is waiting for so he/she can commence solving. You may just be the only one who can continue solving from where someone else has stopped.

You see how important your little effort to solve it could be and how dangerous deciding to give up could be?

To still focus on the problem or  work on the solution?

The answer is up to you.

A Practical Guide To Quit Porn For Good

I don't need to start defining what pornography is to you, why humans are attracted to it and how it affects the brain. You can use Google to find them out. I believe why you are reading this article is simply to find out how you can end the desire to see pornography for good. That's what I'm going to FOCUS on. No distractions.

Almost everyone who uses the internet knows what porn is, even though we'd like to pretend that it's not there, but we all know it's there.

The internet is one of the best things invented on earth and has led to quick exchange of information across nations and beyond borders.

Ideally, things should be improving rapidly based on this development, but guess what? Few people are actually using that internet for something useful. Many have been drawn to the dark side of the net where pornography lives.

Web statistics really show that a lot more people are spending more time viewing porn sites and the number is increasing.

Enough of the pr…

The Definition Of A True Woman

Previously, I wrote an article on the definition of a true man. It would be fair enough to also write and article for the women who read this blog.

Women are beautiful, lovely and sensitive creatures way different from men in a lot of things both mentally and physically. They are special in their own way and also play very important roles in our society.

Just like in the case of the men, value systems seem to be changing for women too.

Most women seem to rate themselves these days based mainly on their looks. They spend so much time and money in ensuring they look very good, clean and posh. They can do anything to look attractive and get attention.

Some even go to the extent of almost going nude on social media just to feel good about themselves and get reassuring likes.

Painfully, most of these same women don't pay attention to what is inside of them. They often neglect the unseen qualities which make them who they truly are.

There are some women who boast about how many men the…

After Reading This, Your Brain Will Not Remain The Same

I just came across this video on YouTube and I really think it has a wonderful content to be shared here on the bold winner's blog.

Dr. Lara Boyd, a researcher in neuroscience and neurobiology who established the Brain Behavior Lab had some very interesting facts to share with us about the human brain.

Contrary to what we thought, the brain doesn't stop changing or developing at a certain age. The brain constantly changes it's shape, chemical processes and patterns regularly.

And these changes are determined mainly by our individual behaviors. If we choose to change our brains, we must change our actions, what we do, where we go to, what we listen to, what we see around us.

There is no quick fix or drug to enhance neuroplasticity(the ability of your brain to reorganize itself and form new neural connections) than to change your behavior.

An interesting fact is that there is a degree of variability playing a great role in her research. The rates of neuroplasticity varies i…
