Do you have a solution? A solution to a problem? In the end entrepreneurs are solving some kind of problem for others. Solving other people’s problems can sometimes seem easier than solving your own. Can you be a solution provider for yourself?
There are a lot of problems in the world – this is no news flash – so when we are solution oriented we have more of an opportunity to possibly make a difference. Those with empathy are some of the first to be likely to work toward solutions. But those with empathy can also be the most sensitive. And in the onslaught of all the challenges that are thrown at us, if we are sensitive we are also susceptible to a dampening of spirit.
So back to solutions – when we solve our own problems we become more likely to help others solve theirs.
