Problems can kill you! In fact, problems are what life itself is about; and to live is to solve problems. Problems affect everyone; therefore, regardless of your other interests in life you will be interested in understanding your problems and how to solve them.
Empowerment derives from your ability to handle your own problems; wisdom derives from your ability to know when you must seek help. Yet getting help is not usually free; therefore you will be constrained by how much you are able to pay. Solving your own problems is the cheapest route you can follow, though it is not always the wisest.
In this article we discuss some of the daily problems that can besiege you. They include:
Education. You are confounded by educational or learning problems. You attend classes, but cannot follow lessons. You follow lessons, but get stuck in your homework and end up failing your exams. You read your textbooks, butlearn nothing out of your efforts. You need help badly, but you must first learn to help yourself.
Employment. You are out of work, and are having serious problems finding work. You are inexperienced, yet every opportunity you find wants experience. You have experience, but your experience is outdated. You are in work, yet you are not happy. You feel you are not getting what you deserve. You see inflation rising every year, yet your salary never rises at the same rate. Your purchasing power therefore diminishes by the year. At the same time you see your bosses practically take all the profits for themselves. You feel stabbed in the back and want to do something about it, but you are helpless.
Finance. You are broke all the time, even though you are making a decent income. You work long hours a day just to make ends meet. You can’t even find time to spend with your family. Your daily exertions throughout the year, without holidays, are taking their toll. You are stressed, jittery, depressed, and tired. You are badly in debt and you don’t know how to get yourself out of it. You invest in the financial markets only to see your investments disappear. You take out loans but you can’t afford to pay up. You take out a mortgage but you can’t keep up with your payments and your house is facing repossession or foreclosure. You want to be wealthy but you don’t know what to do. Your stress is at break-neck levels.
These are only a sample of the problems that can terrorise your life, give you mental headache, or massacre your physical energy.
