It is true that we learn a lot of things when face serious problems in life. The winners always take problems easy and always find best solutions to the problems quickly and bravely. Not many of us view a problem as an opportunity to learn in life. How about you , mylotters?

Hey, Yes I always view a problem as an opportunity to learn from life. I think that if we don't have any problems, we will not learn anything in life. That is what I think anyway, so in a way it is good to have problems in life. Make sure you have a good day, God bless and Happy Lotting!!

Hello vijayanths!!! Yes, I can view the problem as an opportunity to learn in life. This is the greatest truth that people learn from the the problems and mistakes. And I am also the one. Every problem we face makes us one step matured or experienced. Experienced people are those who have faced many difficulties in life and yet survived. Why? because they have learned from the problems. That is vary nice idea to be calm even in the problems. That really keeps up concentrated. And definitely these are the symptoms of the winners. Nice discussion vijayanths...Happy mylotting...

I believe that problems in life strengthens us and allows us to learn that life is full of surprises no matter if you are rich or poor. God will never allow problems to come our way if He knows that we cannot handle them. It is normal for a person to complain each time he encounter obstacles in life because humans by nature is weak. Problems sometimes test our patience and our determination. But in the end, no matter how many obstacles that we encounter in our life, we become a much stronger and better person.

Our problems are blessings in disguise for us. Allama Iqbal, the poet of East, addressing to Falcon in one of his inspiring and thought-provoking couplet said, " Don't be afraid of strong winds, o Falcon, for they blow just to help or enable you to fly even higher." We must handle our problems with positive frame of mind and with courage and confidence. Problems will soon evaporate and vanish once we prove ourselves to be persistent and equally strong.

Yes, I consider a problem as a lesson in life. Though such problems may be difficult some may be easy, but for me they are part of our life to make us stronger and more knowledgeable. By tackling this problems and facing them we will know more about life and it will make us stronger. Without these problems, life would be boring and we will easily bow down even to most simple task. So I do think that our problems somehow teaches us how to be successful in life.

Problems are there always in my life. I can't see a single day where there is no problem.I can't easily see opportunity in problems. They make me weak. I try to solve myself. Later I may gather some experience, but next moment much tougher problem comes.

I try to look at problems as challenges, and then I do my best to find the right solutions to those challenges. Some solutions are much harder to discover, so one has to keep on trying. It is a great way to learn many skills in life. Karen

Yes, I always will think that problem is an opportunity, because I learned from my mistake when I have a problem and also I learned to solve it. I do face my problem alone and when things gone wrong and I can't solve it my own I ask for help, this problem makes me more courageous and face life as a challenge. We realize something from the problem that is why I take it as an opportunity.

hello vijayanths, They say that life is full of surprises. Have lots of ups and downs but these depends entirely on us on how to deal with it. It's just easy telling other people on what is the right thing to do when they encounter a problem but in real world if we're into it's difficult. I guess the best thing that we can do is to slow down a little beat, think what is the best thing to do - weigh the problem, and ask for HIS guidance. We'll never know and improve or change for the better unless we tried. Experienced is really is the best teacher.

I always try to live by the rule that whatever doesn't kills us makes us stronger. When something bad happens I look at it as if by it happening maybe something worse won't occur. It's a detour on the road of life to prevent something really bad. We are here to learn and we couldn't do that from smooth sailing all the time. If we did we may end up jaded and not compassionate towards our fellow human beings.
