Last week, while attending Tony Robbins Own Your Future Challenge Event, Dean Graziosi was asking “Can Money Solve Problems?”
My Answer was actually “No.”
Here’s the video transcript and More afterthoughts.
Can Money Solve Problems?
My reply was…
The rich ones say that: “Problems that can be solved by Money, are not Problems.”
Or in Other Words, “If Money Can Solve Problems, The Rich Have No Problems…”
Money Can’t Solve Problems, but Money can Buy us Convenience and Happiness,
and it doesn’t takes a lot to be happy.
Dean Graziosi: “Money Can Solve Problems”
While Dean Graziosi’s answer was Yes, Money can solve Problems, and reframing that Sales is a good thing as Sales get us Money to solve Problems.
I believe context matters and almost anything is debatable.
If the Solution is as easy as buying a $997 course, try buying it and do nothing else. Or just buy more stuff and see if it works? The bottom line, you have to work to make it work.
And quite sure after paying that $997, more problems would pop up:
- “How do i do this?”
- “Did it work?”
- “Where do i get this?”
- “What Else do i need?”
- “What am i missing here?”
- “How come i didn’t get this?”
- “I need to email Support again…”
- “I don’t understand…”
- “How do i juggle between doing this and working on that?”
- “If Only…”
Or again spending more money, “Who can solve this for me?”, then “Did i pick the right person for the job?”, “Am i being overcharged?”, “Will he or she really deliver what i need?”, and more…
Life is full of Problems and Questions. Isn’t it?
My Definition of a Problem
“Problems are Opportunities for Us to Shine.”
Or in shorter, “Problems are Our Opportunities to Shine”, which makes it less problematic of problems.
The Power of Reframing is to see the same “thing” from a different perspective and thus changed the approach.
Challenges or difficulties should not be seen as setbacks, but rather as chances for personal growth, learning, and demonstrating one’s skills and abilities.
Embracing problems with a positive attitude and a willingness to find solutions can lead to personal and professional development, as well as the opportunity to stand out and make a positive impact too.
We shall approach problems with adaptiveness, resilience, creativity, and grit, turning what might initially seem like obstacles into stepping stones for success.
“The Obstacle Is the Way” – Ryan Holidays
And remember that…
Every Hardship Overcome is a Story to Inspire Others
The difficulties and challenges that we face in life not only shape our character and resilience, it also has the potential to inspire and uplift others who get to learn about them.
And usually, when we look back at the times of struggles we have been through, we feel a sense of achievement, and glory, or even laugh about it to think about the “crazy stuff”…
Which Leads us to Steve Jobs, not his “Here’s to the Crazy Ones…” but in such a scenario, it would be good to “Think Different”.
Connecting The Dots
“You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backward. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.” – Steve Jobs
