Starve the Problems, Feed the Opportunities

“Starve the Problems and Feed the Opportunities” - Peter Drucker

"Effective people are not problem-minded; they’re opportunity minded. They feed opportunities and starve problems." - Dr. Stephen Covey

I simply love this quote that I printed it in big paper a long time ago 

and posted it in the wall of my room.



Do we focus on our problems or our opportunities in life?

Most of the time in our lives we focus too much on our problems in life, as well as focusing too much on the past. We should remember that there not much to be gained from looking backwards instead of forwards.

No, don't get me wrong, I am not trying to discount the rich lessons we can gained from our past experiences and failings but what I am trying to say is, its time to move on.

Do you feed your problems in life? 

Kung sa tagalog pa, ginagatungan pa ba natin ang naglalagabgab (now I am not sure if that word is right, lol) at to borrow the word of Hulascoop, masalimuot na buhay?

Are we too absorb by every minor and major problems that confronts us day in and day out? Are we too preoocupied by the challenges and seemingly insurmountable trials and problems that besets us? As a person, do we focus and even magnified our afflictions and infirmities in life?

WE SHOULD START TO EXAMINE OURSELVES. 

DO NOT FOCUS ON THE PROBLEMS OR YOU WILL BE MISERABLE. 

I AM NOT KIDDING. 

NO ONE SAYS, WALLOW IN SELF-PITY AND YOU'LL LIVE. 

OFTEN, when we are down, and we don't get up, we don't have the courage to stand and fight anymore. Thus, we end up losing the game. Losing is fine if we give our best, but if we lose because we did nothing, that's what we call, LOUSINESS.

"Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all."

Life has so many issues, but focus on the most trivial and important things rather than the not worth dealing with. 

STARVE THE PROBLEMS.

(pasensiya na, gutom na ako kaya I am ranting about anything here, hehe)

DO YOU FEED OPPORTUNITIES?

Do we grab every good offers, every open opportunity for advancement, for learning, for discovering something about ourselves, about the world we live, about the work we are in?

We live in a world with stiff competition, and with tremendous outpouring of knowledge and information in the web.

Do we take advantage of every good things, of every opportunities?

I encourage all to do so. 

The largest problem with focusing on problems is the distraction from concentrating on the current opportunities.

Simply put,

Starve the problems and they die.

Feed the opportunities and they flourish and live.
