Problems -Your Center or Your Launching Pad
John C. Maxwell has said, “You can make your problems or trials the center of everything you do in life, or a launching pad for a whole new way of looking at life.” The key is to look beyond your circumstances and see the big picture. Have an open mind to change always assessing ones attitude and never lose hope.

Today’s affirmation: “I see my challenge as a launching pad to create a strong new positive view of life.
