Our post last week was about dissecting problems/challenges and we strongly believe that it has served as a foundation for us to see what we term problems look like.
This week’s post as promised will be on apparatus needed to dissect and overcome these problems. problems in the course of this post will be used inter-changeably with challenges because through them alone can we move to the next facets of our lives. A challenge is a better name to call our problems so far we have the understanding that they have come not to ruin us but to make us stronger and release the genius in us.
There are three apparatus/instruments we will point out today that will guide us to overcoming any challenge whenever they arrive.
Identifying, Character and Faith is all we need to overcome our challenges. In order to drive out the cogent points in each of this we will take these apparatus one after another.
The first thing one should do when faced by a challenge is to identify the root(s) of the challenge. There are different kinds of challenges.
If you can’t identify, you can’t nullify. There are various challenges on our ways but the ability to identify(know the source, root and type) of challenges they are gives us the equanimity to arrange them in order of exigency. There are short-term challenges and Long-term challenges.
Each of the type of challenge needs and requires different approaches. Short-term problems are problems that starts not long ago and you can point to when they started. This type of challenges require fast and quick approach in tackling them.
“If a problem doesn’t start from you or with you, it will be very impossible to solve the problem without studying the problem.” This is the case of long-term problems.We need to get down to the roots of our challenges to know where they started from and where to direct our vitality.
These challenges might be hereditary and you need to know their Modus Operandi before you can confront them.
Coaches don’t go into games without a concrete knowledge of their opponents, warriors don’t go into battles without knowing who there enemies are. If anyone likewise dares confront a challenge without a good knowledge of how it works and then device a strategy to combat it, such will fail woefully. If the identity of a challenge is not known one spends time doing the inconsequential and leaving the real challenge.
Imagine walking into a room with a mob of people and shouting ‘Hey!’, ‘You!’ i’m sure no one will respond because you have not addressed whom you desire to call by his/her name.
Don’t face a challenge you don’t know anything about. It will end up in a sham and just a chase of shadows. Know your challenges so that you can call them by name and send them packing.
The next apparatus is CHARACTER. After IDENTIFICATION, comes a very viable bulldozer of challenges; The Character. Character as to be used in overcoming challenges will be what we will examine in our next post. Make it a date with us.
REMEMBER! HUMANS ARE GREATER THAN ANY PROBLEM THEY FACE. YOU WILL OVERCOME!
