To overcome challenges in life and be successful, you must take FULL responsibility for solving any problems that you face. If you’re not sure what to do then BELIEVE in yourself, BELIEVE that you will figure it out!
Taking a consistent attitude of solving problems will boost your credibility (to others and yourself) as you will become known as a person who sorts out problems. Who doesn’t want someone like that around?!
If you don’t know the answer to something, don’t own up to not knowing as this doesn’t help you or the person/ people that you’re talking to. Just say that you’re unfamiliar with that particular situation and that you’ll figure it out, or will find someone who will. Some people will tell you to admit you don’t know, which I don’t believe is the best way to respond. How would you react to someone who says they don’t know, compared to someone who responds slightly differently by saying they’re unfamiliar with the situation and will sort it out? I know which I’d prefer to hear!
Great communication is vital to your success. Communicate to yourself and others that no matter what, you will do what it takes to solve the problem!
