Every time you fix one problem, you are going to graduate to a bigger problem that has more dire consequences, which means more massive, money-making opportunities with the bigger problem than before. The more you focus on being solution oriented, the more big problems you will have. Know that the following is true: the bigger the problem, the bigger the opportunity.
I get excited just thinking about it that way. The level of the problem is a sign of where you are at financially.
I’m not a big rap fan, but I know there was a huge hit by Notorius B.I.G., Mase and Puff Daddy in the 1990s called “Mo Money, Mo Problems.
The chorus says, “I don’t know what they want from me. It’s like the more money we come across the more problems we see.”
When I think about problems, I try to see the opportunity presented if I can fix the problem and move the needle in a positive direction.
What if the song said this, “I don’t know what they want from me, but I’m going to find and see if I can help because it’s another big opportunity.”
If you want to be successful, you are going to encounter what most people call problems. Hey, call them challenges instead of problems. There will be times where you think you won’t be able to keep your head above water. That’s when you have to push yourself.
Leaders emerge when challenges pop up. How you handle it and move forward will be the key to the level of your success. When an issue pops up, you have to see it as a chance to learn, change, fix the issue and grow from it.
If your challenges don’t keep getting bigger then I would bet you that your income isn’t increasing either. You can’t play safe and you can’t play scared if you want to be the best you can be. If you aren’t pushing for more and taking risks, then you can’t grow.
There’s a lot of chatter about fake news on social media and I’m here to tell you that I don’t do fake news. I live in the real word where it is just THE NEWS!
Sometimes in life you have to learn that pivoting in a new direction is the best way to get through the task in front of you. If what you are doing isn’t working, then you better make changes and MOVE!
Don’t operate out of fear. Operate with great faith and know you can do more than you thought possible even when you feel like your back is against the wall. Get excited about the opportunities in front of you. Seek them out. Chase them with great enthusiasm. Tell yourself, “we are going to fix this and be better once we do it!”
