In my professional and academic activities, constantly comes up the word “problem” which causes different effects on people, different emotions that can range from motivation to anxiety and rejection.
By the negative connotation it has on the mind, we prefer to avoid using the term “problem”, but by definition “a problem will always be a problem,” although one would like to see it as a challenge or opportunity area.
Whether in mathematics, in philosophy, in social terms, or in any discipline the term “problem” takes essentially the same meaning: an issue or question that requires a solution.
Situations that required being modified, eliminated or solved constantly displayed before us in life, and I can even say that without them there would be no development or evolution.
And here are precisely the challenges, which by definition are the situations that give us the opportunity to advance, to grow and develop. They are the source of motivation and the circumstance that leads to realization.
And although a meaning of “challenge” is defiance or provocation to confrontation, this time the approach to which I refer on “problem” is that a target is just as difficult to achieve and requires effort.
The effort has a “pinch” of sacrifice and “a lot” of discipline, an indispensable ingredient to face (not confront) the daily challenges and them that make us better every day.
Therefore, we must valuate is whether it is worth the effort, that is, it’s in line with our objectives and goals, family, professional or institutional. This will be the reflection will provide the basis to decide and act.
But sometimes you get tired of the effort, which seems not to bear fruit, and that is demoralizing, but that is precisely why I like utopias and I promote utopian thought, because they emerge renewed vigor.
Our personal transformation, as humans being usually comes from the challenges, problems that we don’t allow them “their definition” affect us, and that our minds and hearts become them in motivation.
The achievement is not an isolated event, is a result of our actions which take its course depending on what we ourselves decide, therefore, the most important thing is that if you talk about challenges, you define how affronts them: with fear or determination?
