Have you ever lost faith in yourself because of your problems? According to an article on Lifehack.org called "7 Simple Steps to Resolve Any Problem," remembering that your problems aren't a measure of your self-value aids you in solving them. Believing in yourself no matter how trying the situation you're in may become helps you get out of your predicament faster. This applies to both problems you have at work and at home.
"It is false to believe that problems are bad karma as a consequence of your past wrong doings," writes author Lou Macabasco-Yanuaria. "Remember, [problems happen] even to the most saintly people on earth. Never let problems become a measurement of your value as a person. You never lose your value because of problems."
So the next time you're feeling down on yourself because of the amount of hardships you're facing, remember that none of it is your fault. Instead of questioning why you have such problems and how you got there, keep a level head and think of how you can solve them. This is especially useful if you're the type of person who panics in the face of work crises. If you spend more time blaming yourself than identifying the root of your problem and what methods you can use to solve it, you will only appear less efficient at work and complicate your situation further.
