Being raised the average way; society causes us to think that problems and situations are never really a good thing, and that you should avoid problems as much as you can. But every visionary understands that all problems need a solution, and solutions are your tickets to reaching your goals to be whatever you desire to be and fulfilling your call and purpose in life….What am I getting at? Just wait for it.
When a problem arises, we try to pass it on and tend to want someone else to deal with it. But as a person of purpose that is not the right state of mind to have and that is not how one is to progress or improve your quality of life. When there is a problem, there is always an opportunity, and especially being a Christian, I believe in the sovereignty of God and how he gives us burning passions for unsolved issues that we would have to step up and do something about it. The only downside to this topic is that; we can talk hours about making change, and everyone actually gives good ideas and inputs but NO action is ever made. Usually when an entrepreneur starts a purposeful business or organization, it is because there is a problem that they are targeting and with determination, going to solve.
While reading biographies as usually, I came across an amazing entrepreneur by the name of Richard Branson; he gave a story about how he would always be traveling, and he would always get annoyed and disappointed at the poor service they would give on these airlines, and he felt that other people must also feel this way. He went on to start his own airline….I Know right? What a guy!…but not only that, he hated that banks would have so much hidden fees to confuse him and other clients, so he decided with his company to start a bank. See? Every issue is an opportunity to do something legendary. Especially when you’re passionate about something. Since I am a devout believer, I relate everything to Jesus. Jesus saw the sinfulness of man and realized that they had a problem and he was the only solution. He died for mankind to have salvation. There was a problem and there was a solution that greatly affected the world in a positive way.
Entrepreneurs see that someone’s needs are not being met, most of the time that someone is themselves. They start with one issue and it actually opens your mind to see more opportunities. It just takes that one push to go fourth and accomplish it.
So whenever you encounter a problem, see it as God is giving you a task to get busy with.
Peace and Love People!
