“If you are not solving problems, you are creating problems, you can’t be neutral.”- Sampson Malachy
Think about this; what if “Thomas Edison” only complained about the lack of a sophisticated tool to get electricity and never invented the Electric Bulb? What if Mark Zuckerberg was blaming the government for not creating a social media platform like Facebook? What if all Charles Babbage could do was to party and drink all day?
The world is facing steep and extensive economic, social and global challenges.
Citizens of different countries keep blaming the government of their countries for these problems, but these people have refused to shuttle deep to seek for the solutions to these problems. We derive delight in complaining, and most times we complain to the wrong people. Imagine a man complaining bitterly about currency exchange rate to his old grand mum. Why? What can she do about it? How long shall we continue like this?
It is sad when People complain over the things they can do something about. We don’t complain over the things we have no power over.
You can educate some children and youths in your community and these can go a long way to curb Terrorism menace in the world, “Because Guns can’t end Terrorism but Education can.’’ You can invent an educational App or organise ‘‘Tweet Chat or Session “that will teach people more about Climate Change or even begin with establishing a business as a great Start-up that employs labour in your current vicinity.
The world is desperately in-need of “new Inventions and Solutions to problems” rather than recycling the same old tiresome logic, appeal to pity and crying out loud for aid. Replace complaining with making requests and taking actions that will achieve your desired outcome(s).
Billions of people are earnestly waiting for you to implore those ideas of yours that can make the world better. Believe me countries are ready to be paying anything to import your solutions and ideas, no matter the price tag.
The same goes for business. Please don’t just start another business, solve a real problem and you will remain relevant. GOOGLE made searching better and Smarter. AMAZON simplified Online Buying and Selling, and YOUTUBE made video Streaming accessible to the people.
The world can never get better if we don’t create solutions to different problems, and if we want to get from where are to where we want to be, someone has to take that step of creating solutions in the world. As Jim Rohn would put it, “You can’t hire someone else to do your push-ups for you.”
