Problems Vs Solutions
How many times have you been stopped in your tracks by a problem? You look at the problem from all sides until you think you know that problem, but it still blocks your path. For centuries people have told us that a problem cannot exist without its solution existing at the same time, but the key is looking beyond the problem so that you can see the solution.
