Turn your problems into profits
Problems exist as a way to keep us active, engaged, and entertained while defining and shaping our respective specialties. Let’s take a look at a few examples of people who transformed their personal problems into their specialty, or more precisely, their expertise.
- The late Maya Angelou was the product of divorced parents, victim of sexually molestation and was mute for several years – Maya grew up to become a great orator, an American author, poet, dancer, actress, and singer. She is credited with publishing seven autobiographies, three books of essays, and several books of poetry, along with a list of plays centered on empowering woman.
- Warren Faidley, at age 12 was nearly killed by a flash flood –now he is best known as an extreme weather journalist, storm and disaster survival expert, earning him the title of “America’s Top Stormchaser”.
In closing, problems we encounter will continue to persist, and that space between meeting the challenges thrown our way and overcoming them with increasing efficiency and skill is what creates the entry point to staking your claim as an expert. It has been said, “For to whomsoever much is given, of him shall much be required: and to whom men have committed much, from him they will ask the more.” Turn the myriad of problems you have faced into exceptional performances and explosive profits.
