Many people feel stuck.  Whether it is money troubles or conflicts at work or home, things often seem as though they are immovable. How many times have your heard yourself and others say, “There’s nothing I can do.” I believe that in most cases, there is.  
 
I remember as a young man in college I had this tiny little dorm room.  It was much too small for two people and my roommate and I had a lot of stuff. At first, the novelty of college was exciting, but as a few months past, I was beginning to feel the effects of being crammed into that tight space.  I started to get irritated and my roommate and I would to get into pointless arguments because of our tight quarters.  At the time I thought, “There is nothing I can do. The room is too small and I can’t move.” That was not accurate.
 
That next weekend my roommate and I decided to do some rearranging and we were astonished at how much stuff we did not really need. We gave a bunch of the things away, found better ways to organize our closets and shelves and in about two hours our room had opened up tremendously.  We were astonished at the transformation that had taken place.  Looking back, I realize that when I told myself that there was nothing I could do, it prevented me from giving anything a try. Once my roommate and I decided to try and fix our situation, our problem was immediately solved.  
 
There are so many times in life when we have a problem that we believe we cannot solve. That is when you need to keep a positive outlook and use your creative thinking to come up with possible solutions and most of all, give them a try. That’s how high-functioning individuals operate.  They use creative and adaptable solutions to solve problems.
