Annoyance and irritation are part of daily life. When we encounter unexpected difficulties, we often become emotional and raise our voice. When people oppose our plans, we question their intentions and express our discontent. However, the fact that those reactions are natural does not make them effective.
Anger and discontent can mark the steps to a
better life more effectively than conformity. Those who accept
disruption without resistance seldom come up with ideas to prevent
further perturbation. In contrast, those who hate interruptions tend to
be the ones who suggest protective measures.
Problems must be acknowledged before they can be solved
It is not a
coincidence that most inventors and entrepreneurs are independent
characters. Individuals who trust their own perception do not fear
calling things by their names. Exacerbated diplomacy can undermine
sincerity and inhibit personal initiative.
Everybody is able to complain, but too few
individuals are motivated to analyse problems, study their causes, and
figure out solutions. Successful living is a process of
dealing with adversity and overcoming obstacles. If we stay alert and
adopt an entrepreneurial attitude, trouble can reveal opportunities to
improve our lives and careers, and increase our success and happiness.
