The Five Solution


You’re facing a question about your health, relationship, business, or project and an answer is not forthcoming. The more you stare at the blank computer screen or yellow tablet of paper, the more difficult it is to come up with an answer. And the worst thing is that you have no one you can discuss the issue with. You are on your own. You must find an answer. Now.

Krysta Gibson is an author, workshop leader, consultant, publisher of New Spirit Journal, and host of “Keeping It Real.”

Get away from your desk or office. Take a walk around the block or if you can’t do that, just walk somewhere for a few minutes. When you return to your office, sit and write down five things you could do right now to solve your problem. Money is not an issue. Location is not an issue. People are not an issue. You can do whatever you want to do. Fast. Write down five things you can do to solve your problem.

If you are like most people, one of these will be your answer or it will introduce you to a concept that holds your answer. If the first five don’t reveal what you need, take another short walk, come back to your desk and write down five more things you could do.

Continue doing this until you break through to the other side of the issue. Then act on the idea as soon as possible.

What this does is free your mind to open to new possibilities instead of keeping you stuck in the same old rut. Give it a try and let me know what happens!
