THE PROBLEM OR THE SOLUTION? 2 - LE PROBLEME OU LA SOLUTION? 2
Working in any environment without a purpose in mind makes you a problem rather than a solution. We must have a desire to leave every situation better than we met it. Unfortunately most people do not understand that their actions have effects on their immediate and at times, their extended communities. It is sad when people make decisions without taking into consideration how they affect others. Selfishness is the greatest challenge to building a society with a conducive environment for human development. All the social ills that abound in the world today stem from selfish desires. At the root of corruption is the selfish desire to enrich ourselves at the detriment of others, almost all forms of addiction can be linked to some selfish desire to satisfy ourselves without giving any thought to those who love us. It is funny how these same people turn around and blame others for the situations in which they have found themselves. The moment you look for those to blame, you are a problem but when you understand that life happens and you make efforts to find an answer, you are a solution.
