Some where on planet earth 🌎 was a young man, who after reading great books and posts, gained clarity of what to do to achieve success.
He was convinced that he would have to be a problem solver.
So he started observing his environment and its people looking for a problem he could solve.
He observed for weeks, but had nothing to put down to paper 📄.
Perhaps, because he was so determined; he began taking short strolls every afternoon, seeking a problem.
Not long, It came to his notice that the town’s people had to trek a very long distance before getting to the main road leading to the other town.
He could sense the distress and pain the people faced with the problem.
Happy was he when he discovered the problem that he wrote his goal to solve it on a plain paper 📄 and pasted it on a wall in his bedroom, so he could see it every day and night 🌃.
As days and weeks passed by, so was his confidence and foolishness grew that he would stand all day before the plain paper, smile happily to himself that he had discovered that which other people didn’t discover.
He made himself believe the seemingly fact that only he lord God appointed to solve the problem, no one else but him.
So he didn’t see a cause for urgency to take action.
But, it happened that another young man like him who just relocated to the same town was quick to discover same problem.
This new young man was so sad when discovered the every-day distress of the people because he was poor and could hardly afford three meal a day.
Yet, he didn’t gave up the idea of solving the problem.
He told one of his friends in the city about the problem and his goal, his friend could have helped but; he was also a poor man.
But the friend however, told one of his friends who was quite a rich man and has a generous heart.
Connection of the new young man and the rich man was made and so he started his transportation business with three big buses 🚍 on a loan.
The former young man who was the first to discover the problem but didn’t dare to solve it, was shocked so hard when he saw that the problem had been solved by another man.
How foolish he was, he blamed himself, but the blame didn’t help…. the problem was solved!
After two months the transportation business had expanded with four new buses 🚍.
The wise young man had his loan paid, employed more people to work for him, and got married.
He was honored by the king with a chiftancy as a gratitude for solving the towns biggest problem for people could now journey to other towns with ease.
The young man lived and died a happy rich old man because he dared to take action and solved a problem while the other young man lived and died a poor sad man.
… Be always ready to take immediate action on ideas that comes to you, thinking that no one ever gave it a thought is a big mistake.
