The Key To Business Success Is Knowing How To Solve Problems
If you want to succeed in life and in business, knowing how to solve problems for yourself and more importantly, others, is crucial.
When you boil it down, entrepreneurship and business in general is about solving problems. The products and services you offer must help solve a problem that someone is facing.
This Young Kenyan Boy Learned How To Solve Problems For His Community
Young Richard Turere was faced with a major problem. And he used his ingenuity and creativity to come up with a simple solution to the problem.
What I loved most about this video is that Richard took a problem that was common in his community and rather than just following the traditional solution of hunting the lions after the fact, he looked for an innovative way to save both the lions and the cattle.
And it didn’t require much. The parts for his invention were things he found or was able to salvage. The technology behind it is simple enough that he’s now teaching other children how to do it for themselves, and he’s using this success to set higher and loftier goals for himself.
And the most beautiful thing, is that because he looked for how to solve problems he was facing himself, his entire life has transformed. In less than a year he’s gone from watching over his father’s herd of cattle, sleeping in the cow shed, to a scholarship to one of the top schools in the country, flying in a plane that he once only dreamed of doing, and giving speaches on illustrious stages like TED.
Pretty phenomenal results all because he asked himself how to solve problems to make things better.
I have no doubt Richard will go on to do great things in his life.
He’s already proven he has the mindset of an entrepreneur, and I wouldn’t be surprised to hear about him leading a successful business himself one day.
Richard knows what other successful entrepreneurs know – thinking about how to solve problems will lead to your success.
