Digging Into The Root Of Your Problem. Hey everyone, I hope you are well. In today’s post, I will be sharing a short guide to digging into the root of your problems. At this point in life, who doesn’t have a problem? We all have problems, no matter how big or small the problem is. And I feel some of us don’t realise this. But if you have a problem, an unsolved problem, then you become the problem.
For instance, I remember when I had a big problem in life that I wanted to change. No matter what I did to change the situation, it always seemed to repeat itself. Then I realised that I kept doing something to try to change the problem. Instead, I should have dug deeper, gotten a complete understanding of the problem, and thought of other creative ways I could solve the problem finally.
Digging Into The Root Of Your Problem
Most people have some aspects of themselves that they would like to change. But how often do you dig deep to find the root of the problem?
You have to address the issues that need to be changed. Without doing this, you will be stuck in a cycle of trying to change, but you won’t make much progress. Denying that something is holding you back doesn’t make it disappear or magically turn you into who you want to be.
You can’t change what you don’t accept. So if you have problems getting what you need to change, you will have more problems making that change.
Suppose you want more money in your life and are having problems achieving that. It would be best to dig deeper to find something you may have missed about yourself. Do you have any long-held beliefs about money that prevent you from attracting what you say you want in your life?
Until those beliefs are addressed and accepted, you won’t be able to attract the extra money into your life. Our thoughts, feelings and beliefs are what shape our reality. If you think you want more money in your life, but your beliefs about money don’t match what you’re thinking and feeling, it won’t be easy to attract it into your life.
There may be times when money will show up for you, but you won’t have the steady flow you want to achieve. Not until you accept your limiting beliefs about money and then change them.
Are your beliefs holding you back?
You say you want to find your soul mate, your other half. But the people who keep showing up in your life lately don’t fit the bill. You’re starting to wonder if you will ever meet Mr. or Ms Right. They are out there somewhere but do you have any beliefs about yourself that might be holding you back from attracting that perfect mate?
Again, you need to dig deep and search for any limiting beliefs or fears you might have about yourself and/or relationships. Now, know that the perfect relationship will come at the ideal time.
Remember that the answer always lies within. Resisting and denying aspects of yourself won’t get you to where you want to be. Only by digging out beliefs that don’t serve you well and accepting them as no longer being helpful to you can you make a change in a positive direction.
I hope you have enjoyed that.
Looking back, limiting beliefs have definitely held me back from accomplishing things that I could have done over the years. This is something that I didn’t learn for far too long – I wish someone had helped me see it when I was younger! Lol That being said, I’ve been working very hard in recent years to identify these beliefs and eliminate them. It has really made a BIG difference in my life.
Wow such an interesting write up and so relevant in today’s world where we are faced with new problems everyday. Digging deeper certainly is the way to arriving at solutions. Have always believed in the Iceberg theory. What lies above is just a glimpse of what really exists.

Digging deeper requires a lot of self-reflection, and I feel like that is why so many people avoid it. But digging deeper into problems is really the best thing we can do for ourselves because of the growth that accompanies that digging and self-reflection.
It’s not always easy, but definitely worthwhile to dig deeper and find out whether there are any issues from our past or our beliefs that prevent us from achieving our dreams. Great reminder!
I’ve found that when I dig deeper, I am able to grow more, and take on bigger challenges.

It’s true that everyone has some kind of problem, and some more than others. I think it’s important to reflect on this but also keep this in mind when dealing with others – be kind! You don’t know what people are going through. 🙂
This post was so insightful and came at the right time. It reaffirms what I’ve been doing lately when it comes to relationships in my life. Finding the root of the problem (even if it may be hard to face) is so important when it comes to finding out how to free ourselves from it. Once we can truly pinpoint what the issue is we can take the right steps to positive changes and new outcomes!
“Digging deeper” can be a very scary thought, but I think it’s what’s been missing for me, and what I’m going to focus on this weekend.
Thank you for the inspiring post.
I found this to be a very thought-provoking and useful post. Identifying something as a problem is really the easy part. Tackling the issue and getting to the root cause of the problem can require a shift in approach and thinking. I like how you have shared some great reflections on the things we need to think about to overcome the issues we encounter.
So important to be able to look for and not just at the good symptoms. Otherwise we won’t make any real permanent change.
Only when you start digging into yourself and dealing with the situation is when you can start solving and maturing.
It sometimes hard and scary but doing it help you to find more solutions to your problem. Thank you!
Well said, we should focus on finding to vanish the problem completely.
This was a much-needed read for me today – thank you! Great advice!
This is so helpful. Sometimes we have to get rid of unhelpful beliefs and thought patterns.
Great post I have been doing a lot of digging deeper lately and it’s hard but I have to trust the process.
finding the root of the problem will bring so many solutions to light.
Thank you for sharing your experience and perspective on this Sonia!
I’m a huge believer in looking into the root of problems, it’s really the only way to get rid of them I’ve found! Once again, another excellent post, Sonia!
Well said. As what Einstein said “we cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we create them”.
I truly believe you will find the right person when the time is right. Great post!
Accepting things as no longer useful can be challenging but it really does help bring about change!
This is a great thought challenging technique!
I’ve been doing a lot of digging this past year and when you really search for and find the root of the problem it is so eye-opening to heal it!
This year has been all about digging into myself and doing my shadow work. It has been hard and painful but has made such a difference.
