Take a B.A.T.H.

I just don’t see a possible way out!

Have you ever faced a problem in which possibilities for a solution seemed almost impossible?

Maybe you see a bleak possibility-but that’s it, just one! And this seemingly individual solution, does not provide the outcome you desire or you hope for!

For 99% of problems faced in life there is always more than one solution.

How come we barely see one, if any?

Largely is due to way in which we approach the problem at hand.

Here’s a tip that may help you approach a difficulty: Take a B.A.T.H. No kidding, this can help you greatly!

This is how it works.


B. Background

Ensure you know all the details about the situation. Do not jump to a conclusion based on partial or imagined information.

Break the problems into small pieces.

Deal with one part at a time.

A. Ask

Ask powerful questions to yourself and anyone else involved. These questions can reveal not just one possible solution, but many others to consider.Questions can open up our perspective and allow us to see deeper and wider.

Some of the key questions to ask include:

  • If I was an outsider looking at my situation, how would I see it?
  • Has anyone else faced a similar situation and how have they solved it?
  • What is the worst thing that can happen?

T. Timing

Most of the issues faced do not require an answer or a solution immediately.

Typically, when we receive the bad news or face a problem, it is not the best time to make a decision. It is a good practice to avoid making important decisions after a long day when you are completely exhausted. If it is possible, confront situations when you are well rested.

The same applies when you are looking for solutions to a problem.

Today you may not see a solution but it doesn’t mean that tomorrow you won’t. if possible, don’t feel obligated to find a solution immediately.

As time passes and you analyze the situation, additional answers will become more evident.

H. Health

We all face problems big, small and in between.

Consider the physical and even mental effects of handling problems with a mentality that “there are no solutions for my difficulty.” Such negative approach is responsible, not only for affecting our health, but in severe cases it has led to homicides and suicides.

Sadly, when a man ends his own life, or someone’s else, is because he only sees ONE solution for his problem.

Imagine facing life with a perspective that there is always more than one solutions for any problem!

And the key to unlock those additional answers is simply to take a B.A.T.H.!
