How to

We’re living in a world of “How to”.

 

People are looking for fast way to solve their problem. Thinking that reading a 10 step is enough to solve anything.

 

Reading about how to solve a problem is good. But it’s only a step in the right direction, you’ll still need to do lots of work about it.

 

Stop expecting someone else to solve your problem.

 

“We always hope for the easy fix: the one simple change that will erase a problem in a stroke. But few things in life work this way. Instead, success requires making a hundred small steps go right – one after the other, no slipups, no goofs, everyone pitching in.”
Atul Gawande

 

Problem are created by us. We create them to face the need for change.

 

“You don’t have a problem; you only think you do.”

– Dr. Wayne Dyer

 

If you focus on solving the problem, there will be options offered to you. It’s up to you to choose what you want to do. And take action about it.

 

“I suppose it is tempting, if the only tool you have is a hammer, to treat everything as if it were a nail.”
Abraham H. Maslow

 

If you only have a hammer and it doesn’t work, this would be a great time to find new tools.

 

This one of my favorite quote by Albert Einstein.

 

“We cannot solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them”
Albert Einstein

How I choose the quotes

choosequotes

How do I choose the quotes I’m using in my post?

 

My first source for my quotes is the internet. I like to search for quotes that goes along with what I’m talking about.

 

I choose quotes for what they say. I don’t care much about who said it.

 

For me, a good quote should be less than 25 words long and should be easy to understand. In my opinion, if you can’t resume your reflection in less than 25 words, it means that it still need to be worked on.

 

“If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.”

Albert Einstein

When I don’t find anything good to put in my text, I don’t put any. I want the quotes to support my post.

 

I would like someday to create a web site where any member would have the opportunity to propose a reflection. It would not be about being famous, but about good reflection. Those quotes would be available online for free with the author associated with it.

Face Failure

facefailure

Sometimes, you have to face failure. When you can’t try one more time. When you reach the limit of what you can do, use the experience to do better in your next project.

 

Failure is not fatal.

 

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”

Winston Churchill

 

Don’t let a fail become a stopping sign into your life. Stand up and go on.

 

“You never fail until you stop trying.”

Albert Einstein

Say

Use the power of the word wisely.

 

Choose to speak only good word that will bring goodness in the world.

 

“For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.”

Audrey Hepburn

You have the power to choose what you say. Be aware of the word you use and change those that do not fit what you want to become.

 

“Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value.”

Albert Einstein

Ask

ask1

Ask and you shall receive.

 

You need to take action on what you want. Without the action, it’s only a wish. Wish can come true, but it’s always better to take action on it.

 

Keeping your wish alive is also important. The moment that you start to doubt it, you are working against yourself.

 

Everything is better when it’s simple.

 

“Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.”

Albert Einstein

 

Here’s my simple asking technique:

 

  • Dream (Go Big)
  • Write it down (with a date)
  • Do (Take action)

 

Don’t wait for anything, keep on doing and doing. Adjust as you go along. There’s always something to adjust. As you do, always keep your eyes on the Dream.

 

What road you take to get there doesn’t matter. There’s always many ways to get there.

Imagination

Be amaze at the imagination of others.

 

Even if you don’t understand what it’s all about, it doesn’t means that it’s something that isn’t going to change the world.

 

Imagination is the source of every great things coming into reality.

 

“The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination.”

Albert Einstein

One way to be creative is to try to find a way to solve a problem. You can work on more than one at the same time.

 

Your imagination will help you find avenue of possibilities.

 

If you find yourself stuck, you could maybe use this tips.

 

  • Before you go to sleep, ask your subconscient to find an answer.

 

  • Smile and thank your subconscient for the help.

 

  • Release the problem in the hand of your subconscient with the certainty that you’ll get your answer as you will wake-up in the morning.

 

  • In your mind, think about the great resting sleeping you’ll get tonight. Think about how rested you’ll be as you wake-up.

 

 

Respect imagination.

 

If you don’t understand it, don’t discredit it.
