Every situation is what you make of it. The best part about making things, is that you can share them with other people. To make something is always better than to get something, because when you make something, you are creating something from nothing.
You are bringing something into the world that hasn’t existed before.
For me, making something out of every situation has always meant asking myself one simple question.
How can I make this better?
Whatever the case may be, there is always a way to improve.
There is always a way to add value.
There is always a problem that can be solved, a problem that YOU CAN solve.
Making things better is the path to success
Because you will always be wanted, and being wanted is better than being needed.
When you are constantly making things better, you become indispensable, you become something that people “just can’t live without.”
- My Microsoft Surface
- Asics running shoes
- My boosted board
Now that these things have entered my life, I can never go back. I can never be completely satisfied without them, because I know that they make things better for me.
So what’s your path? What’s your value add?
It doesn’t always have to be a product or a service, it can be an idea. It can be a way of doing things. It can be introducing a new concept and having people say “I’ve never thought about it like that before.”
If you make things better, people will love you for it.
Better yet, people will value you for it.
Best of all, you will value yourself, because you know you are contributing to people’s lives and doing your small part to make this world a better place to live.
What else could you ask for?
So take this moment, right now, and think of something that you can make better.
Is there a problem at work you can solve? Is there an improvement you can make? Then, go do it. Go make it better. Your future self will thank you.
