#### Transcript of Problem Solving Strategies

Let's be honest... ...I don't know everything... ...and you don't either. "If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you always got." "If you don't change the way you do things, live your life, or make decisions, you will never grow or mature or feel better about life as a whole. You have to be the change you want to see in your life." YOU don't know what I know... ...and I don't know what YOU know... SO ...how can I know what you need to know... unless you let me know. Never be satisfied with what you already know.
You should always seek to learn and grow. NEVER Never be afraid to ask for help. COURAGE Have the courage to ask for help. HELP Help me help you.
