Solving problems usually starts with identifying the problem. But it can be more productive to focus on the outcome you want, rather than trying to fix something.
In that case, starting with what you have (resources, strengths, commonalities), allows you to identify and build on strengths. An article is Positive News underlines this:

Often, they are fed by anger at the injustice, the violence or the environmental destruction surrounding us. They are often premised on struggle and resistance.”
