Making mountains out of mole hills

You know the thing about problems? Truth is, we all have them, usually though our "problems" are nothing more than annoyances, things we need to get done and usually at a time when we may feel we don't have the mental or physical energy to deal with them.

Unless we worry that is, then the minor problems become major ones. We no longer see them clearly, we assign problem status on the hurricane scale, rather than a squall that needs to be dealt with. Worry turns molehill problems into unscaleable mountains. We've all been there. When nothing seems to go right. When everything seems to break down at the same time. When the money runs out. When we have no energy left over, when everything seems to be against us. Then we make mountains out of molehills.

Just for a moment, lets turn that around - what if we threw everything we had at the "problem". The problem is still the molehill, but now we throw the weight of the mountain behind it. If we did that, the molehill would be crushed like an ants nest.

You may argue that you don't have the energy to deal with yet another problem, but the truth is you are so much stronger than you give yourself credit for. Look at what you've already achieved, how many molehills have you stomped on already? How many fires have your extinguished?


the fact is, we could always throw the mountain at the molehill. We can always do so much the problem would be crushed, but most of the time we can't be bothered. it's a problem, it's an annoyance, and if we are honest, we relish the problem because we like to think we have them. If we have problems we have something to whinge about.

What is the biggest problem you are facing right now?

If you are in business, what is the biggest problem your clients are facing right now?

Chances are it's going to be a combination of not enough money and the need for additional clients.

So my question to you is, what are you doing to solve their problem?

Remember what Zig Ziglar said? No, let me remind you - he said "You can have everything in life you want, if you help enough people get what they want".

What do you want?

Chances are it's the same as your clients.

So my challenge for you today is to go all out, throw everything behind the problem as you see it, and when you think you don't have any more to give, throw even more energy and resources behind it. Crush it.

What happens then is interesting.

As you begin to throw your energy and resources against the problem, you are not looking at the problem any more, but the solution. And there are many solutions to any problem. If I asked you to write down 200 ways you could double your money, what would you write. Once you've gone through the obvious ways, then it becomes interesting.

That is one of the reasons why the 100 day challenge was created. To force us to look at what we did, and ask us to do more than we thought we were capable of, and all we had to do was look at it in this way for 100 days. What can you achieve in 100 days? Of course it's up to you, but look at it this way. If you think that 100 days is too much try for 1 day. Do all that you can today, then do even more, throw everything you've got at it, after all it's just for one day. Then tomorrow, you do it all over again. Repeat 99 more times, and you will have achieved some amazing things.

Is 1 day too much, then try for 1 hour.

Can't imagine doing that for 1 hour then break it down so you can't fail. Can you read for 1 minute? Can you make 1 phone call? Can you write a single email?

Our persistence muscle is just like any other - it takes time to create, but once you've got it, you will never look back.

Go all out, throw everything behind the solutions to your problems and you won't have them any more.
