Leadership Guru- John Maxwell once said, “Your problem is not your problem; the problem is that you think your problem is the problem so now you have a problem that has become a problem…”
The person who has been seated at home without a job for eight months does not have a job problem, but the lack of a job could become a problem if they think it is. So what is their real problem?
It could be that they have a;
- Spreading the word problem (marketing),
- Resourcefulness problem,
- Thinking problem,
- Sales problem…etc.
Sometimes the situation is only a problem because it is looked at in a certain way. Looked at in another way, the right course of action may be so obvious that the problem no longer exists. See beyond the problem.
