Nail the Hammer!

If Hammer is the only tool you’ve, every problem appears like a Nail!

So, the tool is hammer⚒️ (i. e., force) being used as the only solution to solving problems.

Then, the only way 〰️of solving problems appears to be "seeing" them as "Nails".

Here, Nails 💅 symbolically represent the obedient things which accept force without any resistance whatsoever!

Which means solution (force) being applied is in perfect synch with the problem getting solved!

However, this is rarely the case in reality, leading to much strife and frustrations.

Guess what? This is just blind presumption at its worst.

Real life problems demand far more flexible approaches while solving them.

If so, is there a better way out?

Can we think in terms of WHY NOT FLIP the process instead?

In other words, instead of Hammer hitting Nails, why not "Nail the Hammer"?

Sounds absurd, isn't it?

Well! The counterintuitive way it can happen is as follows:

"Let the Nails Get attracted to Hammer" ⚒️!!!

For this to happen, the Nails need to have special property, not dumb ones!

And the Hammer wouldn't apply force to "attract" them, by having a special property!!

In other words, think of the Hammer as a Magnet!!

Then Nails will have ability to respond to the power of attraction from Hammer!

Imagine the Nails ability to respond as one inculcating faith in oneself.

And the Hammer ⚒️ as a Magnet that facilitates Co-creating the future you desire!
Then the power of attraction between the two is instilling Self Love!

So, that’s how Nails (ability to respond for inculcating faith) "attract" (i. e., instill self love) the Hammer (magnet of co-creating future) in order to solve problems!
