Did Olivia Pope Get This Right?

Many people don't like problems. In fact, often, we look for ways to avoid them all together, however, what if we looked at things from a slightly different perspective?


The reality is that without problems we wouldn't have jobs, and there wouldn't be opportunities for us to be successful entrepreneurs. My favorite jeans, for example, are curvy fit jeans. Prior to that, I had trouble buying jeans that fit me appropriately. I used to have to buy men jeans because my thighs and butt were too big for the jeans that they used to sell for women and I didn't like my pants to fit like they were painted on me (Not flattering at all). I wasn't the only one with curves though, hence the reason that it was such a successful solution to those experiencing the same problems I was. The person who came up with this idea saw a problem and became the solution...And how profitable it was for them because they had an answer for a problem that needed to be solved.


The reason I love my job, is because I am truly passionate about helping people be successful in accomplishing what God purposed them to accomplish in life. I love the fact that I can hear a problem and almost instantaneously come up with ways to resolve it. I love that my mind thinks strategically (I can't take credit for this-God graced me with this ability). But I am grateful, because when I help people is when I feel the most alive! When I see the start to gain momentum, confidence, and passion for what they are created to do, that's when I feel fulfilled. I don't have to work for money. Operating in my purpose will make me profitable. But it's my passion for what I do and for the people I do it for that makes it fun, exciting, and interesting, even when it is frustrating.


I love how the right perspective can bring a renewed passion for life. I believe we all have a specific purpose to fulfill. What problems do you see that God has made you the answer for? Don't look at problems as inconveniences but rather as opportunities for you to sine. This perspective will change the way you look at the problems you encounter and challenge you to not just complain about them, but to look for ways to resolve them. Who knows...you may just be the person purposed to bring change and who knows if that isn't the thing that will bring you the success you've been looking for.
