You MUST understand and accept this fact – that every “problem” has a Solution – as TRUE. If you do not accept this proposition as the Truth, the likelihood that you will realize the Solution is highly unlikely. Think about it: if you do not believe that there is a Solution to your dilemma, what are the chances that you will attempt to realize it? You won’t. And, your “problem” will remain unresolved and continue to fester. Follow and apply the Universal Ten-Step Technique outlined in this Post to Solve ANY Problem!
Most people consider life a battle, but it is not a battle. It is a game. It is a game, however, which cannot be played successfully without the knowledge of spiritual law. “Whatsoever a man soweth that shall he also reap.” This means that whatever man sends out in word or deed, will return to him; what he gives, he will receive. This means that what man images, sooner or later externalizes in his affairs.
Struggle forces us to move when we would otherwise stand still. And it leads us eventually to the full realization that success comes only through struggle. Nothing worthwhile in life is ever achieved without a struggle. If it were easy, everyone would do it. Wherever you find a successful person, you will find a person who has struggled in his or her life. Life is a struggle and the rewards go to those who meet difficulty face to face, overcome it, and move on to the next challenge.
True lovers of professional football who watch the games and study the offensive and defensive plans and game strategies will come to see two diametrically opposed plans of attack: some teams clearly play to WIN, while other teams simply play to “not lose.” While both strategies seemingly may get you to the same place (winning the game), the game plan of “playing to WIN” is very, very different than the game plan of “playing to not lose.” Both strategic approaches apply to the Game of Success, and the plan that you implement in your game may well determine whether you Succeed. Playing to “not lose” is only playing the game to “survive” long enough until the clock hits zero, with the hope that what you have is enough. On the other hand, when you play to WIN – and play it the way it should be played – your level of Desire, Intention and Commitment are strong, your Will is empowered and you either WIN or perish in the cause. With so much at stake, there is really only one possible outcome: Success.
While we may not have the power or ability to control the external world and the people who live in it and what they may or may not do, we DO have the innate, God-given power and ability to control how we respond to life’s events, conditions and circumstances.
