Everyone has financial problems. If you want to get rich, you have to solve problems. Identifying the problem creates the opportunity to reach a solution.
Each generation has and will have a unique set of financial problems. The challenges faced by my generation of parents were the global economic crisis and the oil shock. Their solution to these problems was going to school, finding a safe and good job, retiring at the age of 65, and spending the rest of their lives watching sports. For the vast majority of my parents’ generation, getting a good education and getting a good job was enough to survive financially.
Our generation is faced with a different set of financial problems. A good university education and a good job are not enough today. Exporting jobs overseas also makes the problem even more intricate.
The next generation, Generation Z, will have different financial problems that it will have to deal with. If our generation fails to clear the mess that the generation before ourselves left us, the complexity that the generation Z has to deal with will be much greater. Generation Z will have to deal not only with their own financial problems, but also with the problems they inherited or even inherited to their parents.
The growing scale of this problem, currently worth trillions of dollars, is daunting. Simply handing this problem over to the next generation will only make the problem bigger and more complex. As financial problems become bigger and more complex, the financial IQ we will need to solve them has to be higher. We will need all of our brainpower to solve this problem.
My suggestion to you is to overcome the storms in today’s financial world with proper financial education and planning. Find ways to solve problems and get richer with this training.
One thing we should all bear in mind is that a little effort is the best substitute for excuses. If we all make some effort to understand what is happening around us; If we can think with a superior, caring mentality, a more enlightened and correct way of thinking will emerge. While defining intelligence, problem solving skills are mentioned. This is possible with education. Just as there is no understanding, there is hate, if there is no education, there is fear.
Ignorance may be easier, but it often comes out of fear. Reduce your fears and trigger your courage.
This is an amazing power of energy if you have the determination to move forward quickly. And when you focus on the right thing, your chances of success are very high. I have always liked this statement of Alexander Graham Bell: “Concentrate all your thoughts upon the work at hand. The sun’s rays do not burn until brought to a focus.”. If you can control your energy then you will have a good opportunity to create and control your own level of wealth.
Problem solving will also become a lot easier if you think they are a challenge. Problems are part of life. It is inevitable that a positive approach to problems will give you more energy. Trust is a big step on the road to courage, and fear will evaporate when confronted with confidence.
At the beginning of the post I said that a problem can create an opportunity. If you start seeing your problems from such a perspective, I can also assure you that you will be on the way to solving them.
Like everyone else, I know that problems can be complex and sometimes seem like never ending. However, I would like to encourage you to see them as an opportunity to challenge you to great success. Just remember that reaching nothingness is easy… But who wants to reach nothingness? You can achieve great things with your financial intelligence.
