The magic of your attitude: If you treat problems as problems, they are problems. If you treat problems as opportunities, they are opportunities. Don't talk about a problem; talk about an opportunity.

The way we see the problem is the problem.

Stephen R. Covey

We are continually faced with a series of great opportunities brilliantly disguised as insoluble problems.

John W. Gardner

The problem is not that there are problems. The problem is expecting otherwise and thinking that having problems is a problem.

Theodore Rubin

The problem is never how to get new innovative thoughts into your mind, but how to get the old ones out.

Dee Hock

The measure of success is not whether you have a tough problem to deal with, but whether it's the same problem you had last year.

John Foster Dulles

The best way to escape from a problem is to solve it.

Alan Saporta

Every problem has a gift for you in its hands.

Richard Bach

I believe that if you show people the problems and you show them the solutions they will be moved to act.

Bill Gates

The first requisite of success is the ability to apply your physical and mental energies to one problem without growing weary.

Thomas Edison

I never cease to be amazed at the power of the coaching process to draw out the skills or talent that was previously hidden within an individual, and which invariably finds a way to solve a problem previously thought unsolvable.

John Russell

One should never impose one's views on a problem; one should rather study it, and in time a solution will reveal itself.

Albert Einstein

When the solution is simple, God is answering.

Think Like a Genius: 6 Tips by Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein

The significant problems that we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them.

Albert Einstein

I know with a conviction beyond all doubt that the biggest problem you and I have to deal with- in fact, almost the only problem we have to deal with-is choosing the right thoughts. If we can do that, we will be one the highroad to solving all our problems.

Dale Carnegie

How you think about a problem is more important than the problem itself – so always think positively.

Norman Vincent Peale

No problem can stand the assault of sustained thinking.


Life's problems wouldn't be called "hurdles" if there wasn't a way to get over them.

Author Unknown

One of the secrets of life is to make stepping stones out of stumbling blocks.

Jack Penn

Every problem or difficulty you face contains the seed of an equal or greater advantage or benefit.

Napoleon Hill

Nothing is so fatiguing as the eternal hanging on of an uncompleted task.

William James

The surest path to success isn't in learning how to navigate through a terrible economy. The smarter path is to discover how you can "create your OWN economy..." where YOU make the rules!

Mike Litman

If you observe our problems, you will notice that most problems are rooted in the mind. The basic premise is the same: some external event happens, we choose to see only one side of the story, and then interpret the situation such that it causes some form of mental conflict, resulting in some form of emotional suffering.

While it is easy to simply say, “drop your problems”, you and I both know that it is not that simple. We all have had years and years of conditioning in attracting problems and conflicts. So much so, that the simple concept of ‘stop thinking about problems’ will not be so effective on us. We need tools that strike at the problem’s root... >>>
