hello ,

with the first we in the life I want to live the life that is better than i could have hoped for with a woman i never expected to be with . there have defiantly been learning experiences (aka problems at each step of the way .. but i had expected some .. well not ending up in a brothel ten minutes after leaving the Manila air port ..but the guys understood my explination of just how angry my wife to be would be .. and i ended up in a hotel ten minute later ..

now i am waiting for the dsl to be turned on instead of this crappy satellite internet .. then i will sign up for the war room once i have a phone number to make Paypal happy ..

the key is not to have the same problems over and over again .. and to break the cycle .. and to be ready to adress and take care of new problems as they arise .

problems are not punishment for doing things wrong they are opportunities do do things better next time .. or if they block you from doing a certain thing this time it may be because there is a better thing right there to get done

    Well said! Problems are a part of life and an opportunity for growth. Just as there is no "failure" except for the failure to learn from our experiences.

      Great way to put it mate. Problems aren't a punishment. Problems only continue to be problems if you keep responding to them in the same damn way and therefore end up reliving the cycle all the time.

      There is a quote by Einstein that goes something like "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results."

        i am really certain the einstein quote refers more to scientific lab experiences .

        As a fact the world we live in now is that doing the same things over and over tends to bring diminishing returns .

        while in a lab doing thing the same way should bring the same results .

        the old mindset .. for the majority of people was not to seek out the best experience but to limit the chance of a bad experience .

    "problems are not punishment for doing things wrong they are opportunities do do things better next time"

    Truth.

    A "problem" is simply a chance to improve.

    You can either let it overwhelm you, OR you can put it in a choke-hold, cut it up with your light-saber, and overcome it in style.

    Learn from your mistakes and move on. Life is all about failing, making mistakes, running into problems, and then growing inner confidence and mental toughness from surviving your battles.

    You know what its darkness that makes light important and desirable. Everyone has problems and if you don't have some life isn't worth living for.

    I think everything up with it own way. Time and things happen will make you stronger. You can choose to give up and you will get one result. But there are more than that choice. Simple live with it and keep follow your goal and dream.

    That is a good way to look at the obstacles in your life, there is no such thing as failure, it is a learning experience.

      Or stick to the path you intended to do.Don't do too many detours unless you wanted a longer way to get off the trouble.
