What is Problem?

Problem is the very difficult situations and circumstances that we find ourselves and to which need urgent and desperate solution. When we struggle hard but failed to get the desired solution, then it becomes a real problem. Problems differ from one person to another, what one sees as a problem may be nothing but a child's play to another fellow. Problem is not just the difficulties of life but those difficulties to which we cannot find immediate solutions. While challenges are situations that we can overcome with some intelligent planning and actions, problems are often more difficult than those challenges. When a problem is easily solvable, it is still at the level of challenges, but when you have tried some of the popular ways of solving problems and you still have the situations in hand, then know that problem have set in.

Please understand that not every difficult situation can be called a problem, no mater how difficult the situation is, it is not a problem if you can find immediate solution to it. When the difficulties defile solutions and it seem as if it will not go away, then it is a problem, but I bet you every of such problems have a solution. There is no problem that does not have solution, even though it  is not so easy to get solution to some, God built the earth with some principles that make it possible for human beings to be able to find solution to every problem that he faces on the face of the earth. This is the reason man who couldn't deal with malaria fever before can now cure the disease easily now. HIV & AIDS that were threats to human longevity on earth are becoming easy to deal with. I want you to understand that whenever a problem defile solution, it is not the end of the world, with further planning and actions, you will get the solution.

There are certain principles that every man should know so we will not think that the end has come when we have problems and difficulties. Problems that plague man on this planet were not built to last for ever, that is why these two statements are true:

  • When the going gets tough, the tough gets going, and
  • Tough times never last but tough people do

I have seen it ones and again people getting out of tough situations; people overcoming very many impossible obstacles; I have seen people turning obstacles to miracles. Many really successful people on this planet have actually started out in life broke and without any god-father who could help them yet they succeeded. There must be a secret to life that if you know and keep, you will never end up in life as a failure no matter what difficulties you may ever face on this planet. Success or failure in life is not dependent upon the conditions of life you find yourself, it depends more on the way you handle it. Maybe I should take you back to some point in time on planet earth when people do not have access to some of these creative technology that is common to us today.
