Creating A Solution
People only make impact by the problems that they help to solve and not by the problems they create. The more you provide solutions to problems of people and of the world, the more your value increases and you become more relevant. In this era, you will agree with me that it is only the people that will add positively that are being sought for.
The people that are celebrated now, even inventors, are people that were able to identify the problems bugging the world (or at least a particular sector of the world) and moved to create solution for the problem. The easiest way to be successful is to be a solution provider. I usually tell people this and I will like to repeat it again:
Instead of pursuing after money, try to pursue after providing solutions and money will pursue after you.
Looking at the above quote, you will understand one thing from it; money, same with other achievements, is a by-product of solving problems. If you do not solve problems, then your relevance may soon dwindle. Do not just live as if you are in a perfect world, always seek for solutions to provide.
In your place of work for example, if you are an employer and you need to lay off one staff out of two in a particular department. If one of the staff always provides solutions to keep the organization moving forward and the other one just has certificates but lives a sedentary lifestyle, who will you retain? Obviously the person that creates solutions and adds value.
As long as life remains, the world's problems will not cease, it is only left for you to identify the particular problem you can and then work towards providing the solution to it. When the Wright brothers (Orville and Wilbur) saw the problems in long-distance transportation, they thought of a possible solution and they created a flying machine and that was how airplanes came to be.
I read a story about how the stethoscope was invented. The inventor, who was also a doctor at that time, got tired of always placing his ears directly onto the chest of his patients as a way of listening to their heartbeats - that was how he thought of the possible solution and stethoscope was invented. The summary of all these is; your relevance begins primarily when you become a solution provider.
The world is already too busy that you need to create the attention you want, instead of just seeking for attention. One way to achieve that is to give the world what they need and that is to give solutions to their problems.
