  2. I agree with this statement because a problem is a state of difficulty that needs to be resolved. It is also an issue or obstacle which makes it difficult to achieve a desired goal, objective or purpose.

    Challenge is a demanding or stimulating situation. In life, we only face challenges, which help us improve and pushes us forward towards out goal. Problems obstruct us in doing what we want. Challenges help us identify the problem, discover the cause, find a solution and implement the cause. That is what life is all about, it is mainly about challenges.

  3. I think the statement depends on what state of mind you are in. Challenges are problems that need not necessarily be done, but you want to attempt it.Problems are just challenges that have to be solved or done.It depends if you want to look at the problem/challenge from a positive or negative point of view. It is basically up to you to solve the problem/challenge.

  4. This statement can either be correct or wrong, depending on what mindset you have.

    People with a Negative mindset see problems as problems, situations that are difficult to get out of. People like this usually only solve the problem if it needs to be solved. (They will only give their best if they want to.)

    People with a Positive mindset however, see problems as challenges, situations that are difficult to get out of, but with enough effort put in, they can overcome the challenge. People like this usually solve the problem because they want to. (And if they don't want to, they still give their best in.)

  5. This will matter on perspective and your mindset. A person with a negative mindset would see the situation as a problem while a person with a positive mindset would see the situation as a challenge. For example, what people refer to as innovators are people who see the situation as a challenge while others would see the situation as a problem. Whether the situation is a problem or challenge it would matter on perspective and mindset

  6. This is very simple. A problem is something that we are afraid of, But a challenge is something we all WANT to solve. It all goes back to one's mindset, whether they view a problem as a challenge, or whether they are lazy to do anything about it and they see it as a problem.

    Problems are all around us and we can all see them as challenges, challenges are Problems, i do not see any difference.

  7. Yes, I do agree with this statement. If you have a "half-full" mindset, you will see obstacles as challenges. However, if you have a "half-empty" mindset, you will see challenges as problems. And when you see it as problems, it becomes makes the obstacle harder to solve. If you view it as a challenge, you have a better feel to solving the problem. But, both are actually the same. Once again, it depends on perspective...

  8. It is actually how people see problems and challenges. Because different people have their different perspective, so this statement depends on who it is coming from (in this case it is this Candace's mum). So if you have a positive personality, you will see "it" as challenges. But if you have a negative personality, you will see "it" as problems.

  9. It depends if the person is optimistic or pessimistic, an optimistic person would see it as a challenge to test themselves but a pessimistic person would see it as a problem that is not wanted.

  10. I do not agree, because it is impossible for you to think there are COMPLETELY NO problems no matter how positive you are, and neither are there COMPLETELY NO challenges no matter how negative you are. This statement stereotypes positive people, because there will definitely be something you don't want to deal with(and vice versa for negative people). The more positive you are, the less problems you have, but you will never reach the point where there is no problem, it is impossible unless you have a disorder or there's something wrong with your brain. In fact (this is my deeper thoughts), not only is it impossible to have absolutely no problem, but there are no such things as problems and challenges(if they are described as somethings positive and negative), as I know that nothing is 100%(for example, everything is opinion). You will never be purely positive for something, as you will have negative thoughts about it too. But that doesn't make me agree with the statement, as it says that there are "only challenges", which to me, does not exist, so I am still going to disagree. We will always have negative thoughts, and positive thoughts, so you're never "purely" positive or negative.

  11. I agree with this statement as challenges is the better way how you look at problems . With this positive mindset you have in mind , everything would be a challenge , not a usual problem you usually get stuck in . Most likely you will be able to solve the challenge as you will have motivation and drive the challenge you face easily .
    If you have a negative mindset , everything would be a normal problem and it would be easy to overcome the problem as you don't have the motivation to solve the question .

  12. It depends on how the person sees the challenges around. Everyone has their own perspectives, so it actually depends. If you have a negative mindset, you will realise that everything around you are problems, so it is very difficult to get out of it. But if you have a positive mindset, you will think problems as challenges, which means that you will strive hard to accomplish the challenge. If I were to say, I would agree to this statement.

  13. i agree because many of a time the problems ( which is when we think negatively ) are almost can be ' changed' to challengers instead. Because when challenges are formed in stead of problems , people mindset will change and can think better in a way . But it all depends on the persons personality , if the person is a negative thinker then he will often think the challenges are problems and if the person is a positive thinker then he will think problems are challenges instead and at the same time achieve better result.

  14. Problems are "Idiots" in a way, being pessimistic, and challenges are the other way round.
