Grow With Challenges, Rather than 'Overcoming Problems'

When you consider a problem in your life, you possibly feel weighed down with the onerous task of solving it. Your shoulders sag under the figurative weight of whatever it is that has gone wrong. You sigh deeply within yourself, square your shoulders, and step manfully up to the plate in order to get on with it.

Recognizing that such an attitude will indeed, in all likelihood, help you solve the problem, does not mean that it is the best attitude.

For starters, look at the problem as if it were a challenge. Same situation, different word.

Doesn't it look different already?

Almost akin to thinking out of the box, isn't it?

Now begin to consider that each of the challenges (problems in your former vocabulary) you have had in the past, caused you to grow in one area or another.

Isn't that sort of a good reason to look at challenges in a whole new light? Embrace them, even welcome them, because now you know, that as you resolve whatever it is, you grow at the same time.

I remember when my mother died unexpectedly when I was 19. I was not even on the same continent as she was. But I knew immediately, even in the midst of my blackest pain, that rather than dwelling on the pain, I was to dwell on what I could learn from this - for me - devastating event. And what I learned, how I grew, was that I recognized with great clarity that when challenges enter an individual's life, there is always something to learn, always a way to grow, always something that can enrich you. My mother's so very early death was devastating, but it was enriching. Her legacy to me was this knowledge - that pain and challenges could make me grow - and for that I am eternally grateful.

For much more about growth, finding inner peace, having a conscious relationship with yourself and living consciously, about making choices, finding meaning in your life, about being aware of your thoughts and feelings, how you react to others and how you love yourself, as well as about choosing to seek your inner well-being above all, in order that you may have a ripple effect on all those who come in contact with you, have a look at my book Rewiring the Soul, available at Amazon.

Reviews From Amazon:

"The Soul doesn't get sick but it does need nourishment; if not it seems as if our life starves to death. This wonderful book by Dr. Gabriella Kortsch is definitely healthy "Soul food". It becomes clear that as the personality endeavors to "rewire" the Soul, it is its own energy or conscious awareness that is elevated to that higher level where the invisible becomes visible and experienced as peace, joy, love and freedom. A treat to enjoy and celebrate."
ERIC ROLF; author, Soul Medicine: The Heart of Healing

"Rewiring the Soul is a thoughtful guide to the peace and joy that self-government through inner awareness brings. In the words of author Gabriella Kortsch, anyone's ideal 'possible human' becomes their actual reality by following the simple inner steps in this remarkable book."
JIM WAWRO; author, Ask Your Inner Voice

"This book is a gift to humanity, a valuable tool in aiding seekers to accomplish mastery of their own lives. Gabriella Kortsch provides clear steps to help people find peace in a practical and powerful way. She does not ask you to give up anything other then what no longer serves you. Brilliantly written!"
HILLARY RAIMO; Author & Radio Host

"I thought I could pick just one chapter to write a review, but I couldn't .... I was glued to the chair as I read Rewiring the Soul ... a literary, in-depth masterpiece to the human psyche, behavior and ultimate transformation. Exquisitely written, beautifully executed."
ALI R. RODRIGUEZ, Business Coach, co-author, Mastering the Art of Success
