We have often preached that people should not take advantage of each other but it seems like that is the only way to truly become wealthy! Let me however state that this is a positive way of taking advantage of the people’s problems or situations because you are looking at what they are going through and you have thought about a solution which you can give to them in exchange for the wealth they already have! If you are in need of money or you really want to become wealthy, don’t go out there looking for money because you may never find one! Just go out there looking for problems that can be solved and charge people to solve their problems!
I guess it will take a lot of people some time to realize the fact that when you keep looking for cash and you are not looking for challenges, you may be disappointed. There is no real society that is structured for people who have a beggarly mind set! The real world does not yield any result for people who expect that things would have been ready and all they need to do is to just seize it! Always bear in mind that whatever you find ready was prepared by someone else and it will amount to stealing for you to want to take it as yours!
Take a good look at your environment! Make a list of all the things that are needed in that environment. Don’t even start by saying something is not in your field or that you don’t know anything about it. Just put it on the list so long as it is a problem in your society. Bear in mind that every potential problem in any society is a potential business for whoever has seen it. You may not even know who to talk to about something when you are starting out but as the saying goes, ‘when there is a will, there is a way!’
At different times of life I have started out with something and I never knew how those things were going to work out. All I did was to list the things that had to be done and somewhere along the line, I would meet someone who probably knows more and helps me with some vital information and just get the problem solved. What I have come to realize is that when your heart is willing, doors just open to you and sometimes they open in places you cannot imagine to have had a door! There are many life opportunities that can open up to us only if we pursue challenges with the mindset that they hold some opportunities for us!
Someone’s feeding problem is your business. Another person’s clothing problem is also your business. Stop joining the group to always talk about the problem and never talk about the possible solutions in a world where you only become rich through the solutions you proffer! Others may be so pessimistic that things will never change in a place! You might be loosing out by joining them to be pessimistic because someone else can take advantage of the situation and become wealthy! By then, the person who was bold enough to take the challenge would have become rich while you are struggling with your pessimism!
Life holds so much for all of us but the abundance we can get will depend on the abundance we can see and in what direction we are looking! There are opportunities in problems so look there!
