Once we have solved a problem, another problem or maybe a bigger one will arrive. That will happen as long as we're breathing. There will always be situations that will challenge us to grow, or drag us to the bottom and stay stuck in life.
The key is to realize that the "PROCESS" of solving those problems make people successful.
Successful people can handle bigger problems while others tend to avoid it. We should remember that by the time we were able to solve not only our personal problems, but other peoples problem as well, that's also the time we will become successful.
As author T. Eker stated: "The bigger problems you can handle; the bigger business you can handle, the bigger responsibilities you can handle, the more customers you can handle and the more money and wealth you can handle". Nothing can be closer to reality than that statement.
Who is saying the truth? The answer is BOTH. It depends on whether you want to look at the problem or look at the opportunity, which are both present at the same time.
While there are people who feel unfortunate being born and raised in the Philippines because of the many problems we encounter everyday, it is inspiring to know that some of Forbes top 40 successful people became billionaires doing their thing in the Philippines...while we Filipinos search our fortune somewhere else!
This is a proof that "hidden behind every problem is an opportunity".
And because the Philippines has so many problems..that means the Philippines has so many opportunities.
