One thing I’ve realized is that each and every one of us has problems.
Personally, I’ve had millions of problems, which I don’t regret having because they made me realize who I really am. Besides this, they enabled me to realize these 5 approaches that will help you effectively deal with your problems.
Here are they:
- Don’t Think About Your Problems All The Time
The more you think about your problems, the bigger they will appear in your mind, and you will eventually believe that you can’t solve them. Furthermore, continuously thinking about your problems will lead to chronic stress and anxiety which might result in you succumbing to depression.
- Realize The Problem is Small Compared to What’s Inside You
Realize that the power which created the universe exists in you, and know that no problem is bigger than this power. Remind yourself that you are a powerful being, and you have the power to overcome any type of problem you face.
- Remember How You Overcame Your Previous Problems
It recently dawned on me that whenever I have a problem, and I start thinking about how I overcame a past problem that really stressed me out, I immediately attain a peaceful state of mind because I realize that I will also overcome my present problem.
Therefore, when faced with a problem, just think about how you solved a certain big problem that you once faced, and you will feel relaxed. The more relaxed you feel, the easier it will be to solve your problem because you will deal with it with a clear mind.
- Don’t Overlook Your Problems
Some people ignore their problems because avoidance is less stressful. Little do they know that the more you ignore your problem, the bigger it grows.
An ignored problem often evolves into a bigger problem. There is an African proverb which says, ‘If You Don’t Fix the Crack on Your Wall, You will End Up Building an Entire Wall.’
That being said, you must try to deal with all your problems regardless of how big or small they appear, because if you ignore a problem you will have to live with a bigger problem and the guilt of never attempting to solve your problem.
- Ask for Help
Our egos often prevent us from asking for help when facing a problem because we think that we will appear weak. However, sometimes we might face problems which we can’t solve alone.
In these situations, we must ask for help because some people can provide simple solutions to our problems. Furthermore, asking for help will reduce the mental stress caused by problems.
Therefore, avoid thinking about your problems all the time, and realize that you are bigger than them.
Moreover, never ignore your problems, but try dealing with them because you will surely overcome them. Besides this, when faced with a problem, remember how you solved your past problems, and you will realize how possible it is to overcome your current problems.
Lastly, always ask for help, when you face problems that you can’t solve alone.

The Most Effective Gratitude Formula
I embraced gratitude after reading that gratitude is beneficial for one’s mental and spiritual health. However, I never experienced the benefits of gratitude even after practicing it for a while.
It then dawned on me that I used the wrong gratitude formula after reading Joe Vitale’s book, The Secret Prayer. In the book, Joe Vitale provides an amazing gratitude formula that enabled me to experience all the benefits of gratitude.
According to Joe Vitale, we must practice gratitude by being thankful for all the small things in our lives. He thus provided the following example of a gratitude prayer for a small pottery bowl:
‘Thank you, bowl, for being in my life and for being present in this corner of my desk to brighten and beautify this corner of my life. I am so deeply appreciative of your rich red, which reminds me of manifestation and the root chakra. I appreciate your red color, beautiful little pottery bowl. Thank you for reminding me how connected to the earth we are as I think about the clay, which the potter utilized to mold and shape you, beautiful pottery bowl (Joe Vitale, The Secret Prayer).’
This gratitude prayer reminded me about the many small things that I took for granted even though they helped me in my daily life. For this reason, I created gratitude prayers for my laptop, spoon, chair, table, cup, shoes, bed, mattress, and every small thing I had.
For instance, I thanked my laptop for enabling me to conduct internet research and post articles. Primarily, I thanked it for enabling me to make money from home. Besides this, I thanked my mattress for enabling me to sleep comfortably, and for reminding me that some people sleep on a cold floor.
The gratitude prayers for my laptop, mattress and all other small things made me realize that I always take my blessings for granted. I realized how foolish I was not to notice that I am blessed with the little things I need to live a comfortable life.
You must also try this gratitude formula and you’ll be amazed by how it will make you a positive and happy person. Create a gratitude prayer for everything that makes you happy or comfortable. By doing this, you’ll realize that you are always blessed even in hard times because you never lack the small but important things. You seldom lack food to eat, clothes to wear, a bed to sleep, a phone to communicate with your loved ones, and many other things.
Peace be with you.

7 Things We Must Stop Doing If We Want to be Happy
We all want to be happy because happiness is a wonderful emotion. However, we seldom find happiness because we constantly do things that steal our happiness. Some people are conscious of these things, while most of us aren’t.
This article strives to increase your happiness levels by listing the seven major things we must stop doing if we want to be happier.
1.Living Up to the Society’s Expectations
We love living up to the society’s expectations, and we thus become unhappy when we are in a position that prevents us from aligning with what the society wants. Besides, living up to the society’s expectations makes us unhappy because it prevents us from being authentic.
2.Overanalyzing the Future
Overanalyzing the future by trying to pinpoint all possibilities steals our happiness because it results in anxiety. It makes us constantly worry about the things that can go wrong, even when they are beyond our control.
3.Wanting What Others Have
Most of us are addicted to wanting what celebrities, politicians and our Facebook friends have. We think we’ll live happier lives if we obtain what these folks have. Little do we know that wanting what others have causes unhappiness because it results in envy and makes us feel inadequate.
4.Watching the News
The News makes us over-focus on the negative part of life by showing us how other people are suffering, and it usually results in us worrying about things that are beyond our circle of influence.
5.Forcing People to Behave the Way We Want
We become frustrated when we force people to behave the way we want because we can’t control their environment, thoughts, and everything that affects their behavior. I stopped forcing my friends and siblings to behave the way I want, and I strived to accept their behavior after realizing that my efforts often resulted in anger and disappointment, which eventually made me unhappy.
6.Identifying With Our Material Possessions
Identifying our worth with our material possessions leads to sadness when we lose them. Moreover, it results in us constantly worrying about losing our possessions and how we’ll replace them.
‘Anger, resentment, and hatred are poisons that you drink, and you expect somebody else to die.’ –Sadhguru, Indian Mystic
Holding a grudge against someone makes us unhappy because it leads to negative emotions such as anger, hate, jealousy, and resentment. Furthermore, it makes us dwell on bad feelings or the events that led to the grudge. Also, it prevents us from enjoying the present moment by making us focus on how we’ll get back at those who wronged us.
The universe provided us with everything we need to be happy. However, we sabotage our happiness by doing the above things. We must, therefore, stop doing them if we want to be happy.
