Get this point; if you are not solving any problem in your society, just know that you are a problem in that society. Rich people always say that “If you want to become rich, you have to learn to solve problems, in fact big problems”, and many people run away from problems; this is the reason why many people are still poor to date, because they run away from the responsibility that comes with getting rich, and that is solving problems.

Intelligent people solve problems, find solutions to people’s problems and they are paid back if that problem gets solved. In short, if you want to make some money, learn to solve some problems, and if you want to make more money, learn to solve more problems.  

The billionaire and founder of Alibaba Group Companies Jack Ma advised that “If you want to have a successful company, you have to learn how to solve problems of the society instead of catching one or two opportunities”. The rich get richer because they create many solutions that solve many people’s problems. Remember if you make others life better, you will receive a better life in return, and this is what rich people do. “The problem with this world is not enough problem solvers. So if you become a problem solver, you become rich”, said Robert Kiyosaki, entrepreneur and founder of Rich Dad Education.

And while the poor and middle class people want the government or the employer to solve their financial problems for them; the rich people solve their own financial life, and use their financial intelligence to solve other people’s problems too; while the poor are financially irresponsible and keep on causing more financial problems on themselves and their family too.   The poor are busy blaming the government for not giving them jobs, for not caring for them and busy looking for jobs to care of them, instead of creating or finding a solution that can create jobs, and take care of them too.

Intelligence is the ability to solve problems, so, begin to look for problems you can solve, and you will awaken your genius, your financial intelligence within. Everyone is intelligent, it’s just most people have learnt to utilize their intelligence. Solving problems is what defines an intelligent person.
