The first step in overcoming challenges is to visualize the problem or obstacle from a perspective more distance to see the positive aspects involved, which promote the desire for growth and therefore help motivate you to overcome challenges with energy and passion necessary.

Sometimes these positive aspects can be seen time after having overcome the problem, because we realize that if it were not for this challenge, we would not have the characteristics we have now.

If you do not have a vision, it usually means getting stuck in the complaint, pursuant area we think that something or someone was going to solve the problem, ie we fool ourselves thinking that we can not do anything to address it. It is therefore crucial responsibility and ask how to deal with a problem to solve.
