With around 7 billion people in the world, each as unique as their fingerprint, in many ways we are also very similar. Nobody makes it through life without a few scars.
Life by nature comes with problems. If you have nothing, it's a struggle to get what you need to survive. If you have everything, it's a struggle to keep everyone from taking it.
The more successful you become, the better quality problems you have. Life is a long process of solving problems. The only question is, what problems are you going to focus your precious time on solving?
We can choose to focus on small insignificant problems, or we can focus our most limited resource, our time, on problems that can have a real impact on ourselves, the people around us, and if you ask a big enough question, possibly the whole world.
Jim Rohn once said:
“Don’t wish it was easier, wish you were better. Don’t wish for less problems, wish for more skills. Don’t wish for less challenge, wish for more wisdom.”
FINAL NOTE: To solve any particular problem, what does your brain ask itself in an effort to find solutions. Drum roll please … your brain asks questions.
The moral of the story: For a better life, focus your time on better problems, which requires asking yourself better questions.
