Life is challenging and you have to accept the fact that there will be problems, it is important to deal with them positively and effectively:

1.       State the problem clearly: Stating a problem clearly is like getting a problem half-solved. You look for the right solutions when your pinpoint a problem.

2.       Be direct: Don’t dwell on the problem. Take the bull by the horns and attack the problem head-on. Get the problem out of your mind and go on with life.

.  ~ Henry Ford

3.       Be cool, calm and collected: Do not try to do thing in haste. Act only when you can think rationally and calmly.

No problem can stand the assault of sustained thinking.
~ Voltaire
