“We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.”
Often when we are faced with a difficult situation, we slip into a state of mind that prevents rational problem solving. When we get stressed, our blood pressure increases, and our mode of thought changes. Our emotions take over, which is typically when we make mistakes and say things we don’t mean. To avoid this, self-reflection is required. You must look within yourself to find out what decisions you have made to put you in the situation you are in. Once you have identified those mistakes, then you can consciously avoid them, and begin to solve the problems at hand. Never try to solve your problems on an empty conscience.
