Don’t Run Away From Troubles

Don’t Run Away From Troubles.

I trained my students to look for problems.

More specifically, other people’s problems. And learn how to help them resolve their problems.


By learning to be a problem-solver and a solution provider, they are strengthening their reticular activating systems (RAS).

The RAS is a part of the brain’s attention centre that sieves out crucial information to be transmitted to the cognitive mind.

As a result, the cognitive mind is able to better coordinate integrated responses in response to external stimuli and inputs, and achieve targeted results.

The RAS plays an important part in activating the right focus, motivation, and action to achieve desired objectives.

By learning how to resolve other people’s problems, they are also preparing themselves to handle their personal problems in the future.

They cannot prevent problems from happening, but they can certainly develop a more resilient spirit and stronger problem-solving muscles to manage these problems.

They can grow bigger than their problems, and even turn problems into opportunities to learn, improve, and achieve better impacts.

As entrepreneurs and investors, when you focus on resolving bigger problems, you are also training yourself to develop bigger and better solutions.

The bigger and better the solutions, the more money affected parties will pay you for helping them resolve their problems.

So, start looking for problems and train yourself to be a problem-solver and a solution-provider.



I hope this message will find a place in your heart.
