A Quote by Patrick McBride on sundrops, love, problems, and positive

  Problems are gifts from heaven to help every one of us to grow but for those who are to grow the most, heaven bestows rejection.    

Today is not bad just because yesterday seemed better.    

All the keys to joy can be reduced to these two. Laugh but at no one's expense and love but without expectation.

A Quote by Bill Drayton on problems, entrepreneurship, solution, and social entrepreneurship

The biggest problem is getting beyond the “you can’t” syndrome. The moment you figure that out, you’re on your way to flying. Anyone who cannot see problems around him or herself is utterly blind. All the problems sitting there are an invitation for you to be creative, make use of your skills and resources and find a solution.

Of course you can do it. It doesn’t require brilliance. It’s just giving yourself permission and then being persistent. Persistent in seeing the problem or opportunity and persistent in thinking about it until you have come up with some interesting ideas that might change the pattern. It’s really a mindset, not anything in the objective world — that is the problem.

A Quote by Jack Ricchiuto on intelligence, gratitutde, problems, solutions, and future

There is a mythology that solving problems today will reduce the number of total problems in our world tomorrow. The reality is that the universe promises to deliver more. Nature resists a vacuum. We always want more than what we have and the gaps between dreams and reality represent the problems we strive to solve.

The fact that no amount of problem solving will ever reduce the net number of problems in our world is a fact that does one of three things. It creates the paralysis of resignation; it sends us into a fury of denial trying; or it liberates us to realize that the only way out of the dilemma is through an honest commitment to an appreciative focus. Once again, gratitude is the highest intelligence.

Our goal is not to have       
A problem-free life.     
But to conquer all the problems
As they appear     
Along our life-road.
