Stand Up to Your Problems

At some point in everyone’s lives, a challenging situation is bound to rear its ugly head up. Problems can demote you to a status of shame, or it can promote you depending on how you choose to handle it.

Problems will come in life; however, how we handle them makes all the difference. At some point in everyone’s lives, a challenging situation is bound to rear its ugly head up. Problems can demote you to a status of shame, or it can promote you depending on how you choose to handle it. Our attitude when facing life challenges will determine the outcome that follows—it’s all in your hands. Our approach is what forges the result that we experience when we face situations. A great attitude leads to a desirable outcome and, a wrong strategy could lead to a contrary one. Some people cower in the face of difficulties, while others stand boldly and challenge their problems head-on. There are also people who are lukewarm about their predicaments. This category of people just allow life to take its toll on them.

Problems are the various obstacles that we face in life. Obstacles in the front of the cowering man will become an insurmountable mountain that crushes their will to achieve and conquer the course. However, for the confident or daring personality, obstacles become a course for scaling as they push onwards in the steeplechase of life. For the lukewarm person, they become a rag doll tossed around by the raging winds of the issues they face. There is a famous saying that goes “He who stands for nothing, will fall for anything.” These individuals do not go with the flow or against the current. They allow the complex situations of life toss them around. For those who will become successful, they must become those who stand up to their problems. They must embrace a confident stance as they face the raging waves of challenges in other to become achievers of enviable success.

When you face a tsunami of problems, stand confident! Don’t cower! Be assertive and prevail!

Exercising a modicum of confidence is vital to learning how to stand up to one’s problems. A Helen Keller once said that “Being optimistic is the absolute trust that will lead to extraordinary achievement. You cannot accomplish anything of significance in the absence of hope and confidence.” (Paraphrased). You must never allow the fog of circumstances to blind your will and vision to achieve. Learn to stand up to your problems. Have the hope that you can, and then you can, and the impossible becomes possible. Robert Kiyosaki once said that “Confidence comes through discipline and training.” As you triumph over your problems, you become more disciplined, you become more trained to tackle more difficulties that arise in the future. So, as you undertake the obstacles of your life head-on, I encourage you to do so courageously.

In the video below, Kelechi Agom-Eze highlights the need for us to have some ounce of courage in standing up to our problems. Like the man or woman in a party who assert their importance and self-worth, albeit sometimes brazen, by asking, “Do you know who I am?” We need to brazenly standup and confront our problems in like manner. We cannot cringe before our problems, but we must tower above our problems. The problems that you face in your life needs to recognize your brazen confidence. Eliminate all fear as you ask your problem, “Do you know who I am?” When your problem recognizes your confidence, they will bow to your self-belief. In the presence of self-belief, your predicaments are pulverized. In the presence of self-doubt, your problems are magnified.  In the presence of self-doubt, your obstacles will crush your confidence and vaporize your destiny.   Hence, you must do yourself the favor of standing tall as you brazenly challenge your difficulties.

“When your problem recognizes your confidence, they will bow to your self-belief.”

Problems sometimes manifest themselves as an insurmountable mountain. However, we must sharpen our confidence as we scale the peaks of our problems. They come at times seeming to be the biggest giant that we have ever encountered. Trust me, a giant can make you wince in fear. However, as David faced Goliath confidently, we must also develop some ounce of self-confidence if we are to be successful in overcoming our seemingly towering problems. You must not allow self-doubt to crush your ambition. When you are wavering in your confidence, trust me, the Cyclops of your dilemma can smell that fear from a mile off and will hastily come in for the attack to deal a fatal blow on you, and crush you with the weight that it carries. From “The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath,” she establishes that “The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.” Self-doubt, not being sure of yourself will be the undoing of anyone who does not deal with it; especially in the face of life challenges and problems. 

Just as E.E. Cummings stated that once we begin walking in the paths of self-confidence by eschewing self-doubt; we can then embrace the “…risk of curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, or any experience that reveals the human spirit.” Life is a risk, and to live a full life replete with successes, we must be self-confident. Ask your problems today, “Do you know who I am? Do you know where I am coming from? Have you not heard the folklore about how I crushed other Herculean problems in the not so distant past?” Approach life problems with the brazen confidence and belief that you will come out a victor and not a victim of the circumstance. Do not be crippled by fear, however, let the problem that faces you be crippled by your self-confidence when you assert, “Do you know who I am?” Never doubt your ability to triumph over difficult circumstances. Remember Robert Schuller’s statement and book, “Tough times never last, but tough people do.” Be assertive. Be confident. Face your problems boldly without entertaining any form of self-doubt and success will always be your portion and lifestyle.
