It can be frustrating to be stuck with a problem. While most of us thrive on a challenge, some are greater than we can handle, or they just keep coming back.

When we are locked into a problem we tend to do more of the same, thus reinforcing the problem. If it doesn’t actually make the problem worse, successive failures certainly make it seem more resistant and unsolvable.
