A problem is just a solution waiting to be discovered

“Every problem has in it the seeds of its own solution” – Norman Vincent Peale

When you have a problem, once you know its solution, it is easy to solve it.

An example of this is Maths. Once you know the formula you have to use, all your doubts can be solved. You just have to add here, divide there, and you’re done.

And when you don’t know how to calculate it, you just have to put some information and other knowledge together to answer the “X” of the question.

But sometimes your problems don’t have a formula. Actually, they aren’t even Maths problems. I mean, there are social problems too, such as going to a new school.

It is hard to sit next to people you don’t know, to spend break time alone. And it is even harder to make friends. But always remember that people have faced and will face the same problem as you. And never forget that there are others facing it.

Don’t give up – “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them” (Albert Einstein). Free your mind and start to think in a different way. You just have to discover how to solve it – a  problem is just a solution waiting to be discovered.
