Finding the answer
John Maxwell said, “The most essential thing to be creative in life is to believe there’s an answer.” If you believe there is an answer to the problem you are facing, you can find it. You may have to be creative to do so, but you can find it.
Yet many times, we do not find the answers to our problems, and the rising suicide rates are proof of that fact. Every day, far too many people find themselves facing a decision that will bring about a permanent end to a temporary problem. I’ve been there more than once, and I know from my own experience that I could not see an answer. I did not believe there was one for me.
“You don’t know my situation!” I had said those words to many people who tried to offer me a hopeful answer. And it may be what you’re saying now. If it is, I completely understand. Yet my point still stands. If you believe there is an answer to the problem you are facing, you can find that answer. But you must first believe that answer is there. And as much as this sounds like “name it- claim it,” this is reality. If you do not believe the answer exists, you will not look for it. If you do search, you will not search with much effort.
If you want to find the answer to the problem you are facing, your first step is clear. You must be convinced there is an answer. Once you do that, you have untied your hands to find it.
