FINDING THE PROBLEM GOD CREATED YOU TO SOLVE.

(Daniels Akpan)
(Part 1)

In the few years of my life, I have come to comprehend that life is full of problems!!!

In every village, community, city, society I have travelled to. I have met people of different tribe, race, religion, sex, age, structure, stature, complexion and so forth. I have met and dined with the rich, i have had to sleep with the poor. Yet in their diversity, I have noted that they all have ONE THING IN COMMON... PROBLEM!!!

Sometimes, its easy to think and even believe that "Some people don't have or go through problems". But experience and observation has taught me that "The Rich also Cry".

Though everybody "Cry"... The rich, the poor, those in the village, those in the city, children, adult, youths, married couples, singles, employees, employers, unemployed etc... I have also observed that people cry over different matters, issues and problems!

What makes the rich cry, may be different from what makes the poor cry... But they ALL CRY!
What makes people in the city cry may be different from what makes people in the village cry... But they BOTH CRY!

What makes married people cry may be different from what makes single people cry... BUT THEY BOTH CRY!
Different problems make different people cry. What's making you to cry?

Friends... You are not alone in your problem. What you are going through right now is not NEW or PECULIAR TO YOU ALONE.

One point I want to establish is the fact that THERE ARE PROBLEMS... THOUGH ON DIFFERENT LEVEL, AND EVERYBODY OS GOING THROUGH ONE FORM OR THE OTHER.

Don't give up... Help is on the WAY!!!

On this note, we would continue with PART 2.

However, to do so, permit me to share lessons from my Experience.

It happened that I was invited by a very reputable international body following my contributions to Sociatal, National and Continental Development for a discussion on National and continental development. I was well received with protocols escorting me to the meeting venue.

Other people from various works of life had also been invited. When the discussion was heated, everyone spoke from their expertise... I also spoke intelligently from my expertise, trainings and experiences, but unfortunately, the debate drifted to a field I had little information or knowledge about.

As a fast learner and in trying to learn while others spoke, I asked for an Explanation of a supposed familiar concept(this however was new to me, but supposedly usual to others in that field).

The woman next to me who happened to be a Media Consultant slammed at me before the audience... "You Mean You don't Know what XXXX is?" SHAME ON YOU SHE CONCLUDED.
"Shame on me"?...

Wow... This came as a total shock to me... But just a day before, my Father Dr. John Akpami said to me... "Every Great Leader Must Develop a Great Threshold of Pains". Those words came back alive as I struggle to calm my mind and concentrate on the discourse.

After the entire session, during the networking session, I met her and told her how harsh she spoke to me and she apologized and we exchanged contacts and became friends.

This story is an example of how problem look for people, without them making any efforts. Had I not known what to do with the problem, my entire day would had been ruined.

Friends, My Father has said that "If you don't know who you are, experts would confuse you".

Don't let people confuse you, intimidate you nor embarrass you... FIND OUT THE PROBLEM YOU WERE CREATED TO SOLVE and it will give you security, immune you from intimidation and keep your head high and tall.

Note that you can't solve every problem. Accept that you don't know everything. Make attempt to learn new concepts but BE AN EXPERT IN YOUR FIELD.

Don't try to solve problems you were not wired for at the expense of the one you were created to solve.

FIND THE PROBLEM YOU WERE CREATED TO SOLVE AND SOLVE IT.
