Problem Not Problem - Season 2 Ep 11

Season #2

In this insightful episode of "The Positivity Project Podcast," I explore the fascinating world of problem-solving, sharing techniques and strategies to tackle even the most overwhelming challenges.

Do we all have problems? Yes, we do. Problems are a part of life, and they vary in size and complexity from person to person. But the good news is that we all have the ability to find our own solutions. I can't provide a one-size-fits-all solution, but I can certainly guide you through a process that helps you discover the best solution to your unique problem.

I introduce a technique that can help you take control of your problems and find effective solutions. The key is understanding how our minds process and perceive problems. When something significant happens, we often create mental images and even run mental movies related to the problem. These mental images can be all-consuming, making it challenging to think clearly.

To regain control, I explain the process of dissociation. By mentally pushing the problem away from us, we start to separate ourselves from it, even if only slightly. This initial dissociation helps reduce the emotional stress associated with the problem. It allows us to catch our breath and think more rationally.

But I take it a step further. We push the problem out even further, placing it in the distance, on a wall, but keeping it contained within a boundary. The point is not to get rid of the problem but to put it into perspective. The solution to the problem is never within the problem itself. Instead, the answer lies in the "Not Problem" ie - everything outside the boundary of the problem.

The solution can often be found by examining how others have dealt with similar issues. Has anyone on Earth, either in the present or the past, ever found a solution to this problem or a similar one? The answer is often yes. This realisation that others have overcome similar challenges can be empowering.

Finding solutions may involve research, reaching out to experts, or studying the experiences of those who've faced similar problems. The idea is to understand that the solution is not locked within the confines of the problem but exists outside of it.

This process not only helps in problem-solving but also reduces emotional triggers. When we're less emotionally overwhelmed, we're more likely to act in a constructive way and seek positive solutions rather than resorting to unhealthy coping mechanisms. It can be a powerful tool for managing stress and maintaining emotional balance.

The episode also touches on the importance of perspective. Problems that seem insurmountable today may not hold the same weight in a year or five years. The reframe of viewing problems in the context of our finite time on Earth can provide valuable perspective and a sense of relief.

Ultimately, we all have the potential to navigate our problems and find meaningful solutions. By understanding these techniques and processes, we can empower ourselves to face challenges with clarity and confidence. So, the next time you encounter a problem, remember that the solution is often in the "Not Problem" – just beyond its boundaries.
