One of the reasons that we turn to “experts” for help in our personal growth challenges is because our own thoughts are often colored by anxiety and other emotional baggage, so we seek objectivity in the words of others; but what if there were a way we could remove our encumbering anxiety and emotionalism.

What if we were able, at least some of the time, to provide our own custom personal growth and self-actualization advice?

Actually, we each have this capability but usually don’t consciously realize it.

Even though we all have our own troubles and challenges, I am sure most of us have, at one time or another, given suggestions  to help a friend or relative who came to us for advice on dealing with a problem.

And we gave that advice without being weighed down by personal anxiety or emotionalism.
We were able to deal with their problem(s) objectively.

Although it will take some practice and work, the next time a problem comes up, or you are fretting about a current problem, try pretending (so to speak) that you are giving advice on the problem to your friend or relative.

Write your advice down as a number of points, complete with action steps directed towards a solution.

It may be harder to do than it sounds, but this is one way we can begin to examine at least some of the difficulties we face as solvable challenges.

Solvable through our own personal resources.
