I think that when you look at the great politicians, the two greatest in my view were George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, they certainly had character traits. You also know Abraham Lincoln overcame severe depression problems that he had when he was younger, which gave him the strength and the character later on.
I believe that one of the great problems for us as individuals is the depression and the tension resulting from existence in a world which is increasingly less pleasing to the eye.
One of the fundamental differences between the Victim Orientation and this one [Creator] is where you put your focus of attentionFor Victims, the focus is always on what they dont want: the problems that seem constantly to multiply in their lives. They dont want the person, condition, or circumstance they consider their Persecutor, and they dont want the fear that leads to fight, flee or freeze reactions, either. Creators, on the other hand, place their focus on what they do want. Doing this, Creators still face and solve problems in the course of creating outcomes they want, but their focus remains fixed on their ultimate vision.
Empirical interest will be in the facts so far as they are relevant to the solution of these problems.
It is wise to direct your anger towards problems - not people; to focus your energies on answers - not excuses.
If critics have problems with my personal life, it's their problem. Anybody with half a brain would realize that it's the charts that count.
We are built to conquer environment, solve problems, achieve goals, and we find no real satisfaction or happiness in life without obstacles to conquer and goals to achieve.
The future does not belong to those who are content with today, apathetic toward common problems and their fellow man alike, timid and fearful in the face of bold projects and new ideas. Rather, it will belong to those who can blend passion, reason and courage in a personal commitment to the ideals of American society.

All despotisms should be considered problems of mental hygiene, and all support of censorship should be considered as problems of abnormal psychology
The work of worrying ñ when it succeeds ñ is to rehearse what those dangers are, and reflect on ways to deal with them. But worry doesnít work all that well. New solutions and fresh ways of seeing a problem do not typically come from worrying, especially chronic worry. Instead of coming up with solutions to these potential problems, worriers typically ruminate on the danger itself, immersing themselves in a low-key way in the dread associated with it while staying in the same rut of thought. Chronic worriers worry about a wide range of things, most of which have almost no chance of happening; they read dangers into lifeís journey that others never notice.
The game of life is a lot like football. You have to tackle your problems, block your fears, and score your points when you get the opportunity.

The scientific method of examining facts is not peculiar to one class of phenomena and to one class of workers; it is applicable to social as well as to physical problems, and we must carefully guard ourselves against supposing that the scientific frame of mind is a peculiarity of the professional scientist.
Witchcraft is not evil. At least not any more than lighting a votive candle, praying for a sick friend, or carrying a lucky charm is. However, there are some who do view witchcraft as evil. This is only because organized religion (primarily the Christian church) has conditioned them to fear anything which strays from their narrow condemning view. After all, if you have the ability to fend for yourself, solve your own problems, and choose your own method of spiritual expression, why would you need the confined structure of a church?
[E]conomic liberty and creative entrepreneurship are the basis of any solution to todays social and economic difficulties. Blaming business, setting wages, and attempting to run the economy by decree from Washington only exacerbates the problems. Consider the minimum wage. It seems so simple: Tell business to pay its workers more. But a hike in the minimum wage is essentially a tax, punishing precisely those companies that hire workers with the least skills.
I think that horror fiction is one of the ways to approach these problems of death.
I don't want to get bogged down in semantics causing problems.
Anyone desperate enough for suicide...should be desperate enough to go to creative extremes to solve problems: elope at midnight, stow away on the boat to New Zealand and start over, do what they always wanted to do but were afraid to try.
