Life is busy. So busy, in fact, that most readers won't even make it through this two-minute blog post. We try and prioritize our time, but things pop up. Our phone rings and people need our time. We dedicate so much of our day to putting out fires, we never truly make progress on anything. Or at least that's how life may feel sometimes.
People that truly make waves in this world don't wait for problems to come to them. Instead, they seek out problems in the world and try to contribute to the solution.
There is a lot that goes into solving a problem, but it begins with our mindset. Do we view the world as a place to is constantly trying to bring us down? Are we complaining about the circumstances life has presented us?
Or, do we see the world as a place of opportunity? Do we view the rigor of life's challenges with the zeal of a conqueror?
If you'd like to make an impact on the world, stop letting problems come to you. Find a problem you're passionate about and start contributing to the solution.

"Most people go their entire lives putting out fires, and yet, never think to separate the flame from the fuel." - Jason Wetzler
