Last week I contacted a couple Internet
technicians who’ve done work for me in the
past. I gave them my vision for a couple
more ‘member’s only’ websites.
Yesterday I heard back from the most
technical of the two. In the title of his
email he used the word ‘solution.’
Reluctantly I opened the email. Then I
read the first sentence. It said: Here’s
I immediately hit reply.
‘Solutions is a problem solving word,’ I
said. ‘I’m not solving a problem here.’
To be fair, this ‘geek-speak’ is very common
in the computer industry. Even so, I avoid the
terms because creating something appeals to me
much more than finding a solution, solving a problem
or dealing with a ‘situation or issue.’
I simply want to create the result I want – and that result
is independent of problems.
Why? Because those who focus on solving problems are usually
doomed to a never-ending battle with the same problem.
Problem solved. Problem returns. Problem solved. Problem
returns. And so on. The perfect illustrations of this scenario
are weight loss and weight gain.
Yet, what about transcending the problems you face by creating
what you want instead? Creating what you want can be independent
of problems and circumstances.
If you’re overweight, instead of focusing on the ‘problem’ of your
weight – you focus instead on becoming vibrantly healthy while
attaining your ideal weight.
If your house burns down, for example, you wouldn’t focus on turning
the burnt wood into useable wood. You’d toss the burnt wood aside,
get out a set of blueprints and – most likely choose to create a house
that was better than the previous one.
I know a man who lost his home in Hurricane Katrina last year. He showed
me the now vacant space where his home once stood. The hurricane didn’t
leave a sliver of wood or a block of cement.
Yet, when he showed me the site he said, ‘I have a builder making me
home. I told him I want to CREATE a home that is hurricane-proof.’
When it comes to money, so many people are caught trying to solve a
when they’d be better off leap-frogging the problem and creating the
they want, independent of their problems. When you do this you will
as I have personally, that the so-called financial problem disappears.
Back in 1996, when I first got started on the Internet, I did NOT do
so in order
to solve my financial woes. And I had a lot of them back then.
Instead, I got on the Internet and focused on using it to create an
Overtime my wife and I figured out the thoughts and actions that would
help us create the abundance we sought. We didn’t figure it out
but when we look back upon the speed at which ‘time flys’ – it sure
like it happened overnight.
Perhaps the greatest joy of creating what you want is that you get to
your ‘right brain’ most of the time. When you’e in your right brain

There are only shifts in orientation. The shift I champion is one
that asks you to
be creatively alive and involved in a project that you love.
What’s your project? What’s your goal for today? What do you want?
you really, really want?
