“Touch times never last, but tough people do.” – Robert H. Schuller


My good friend, Robert Schuller, has said something many times to me. Perhaps you've read it in one of his books. It's a great statement: ‘Tough times never last, but tough people do.’

Welcome to Minute with Maxwell, I’m John. And this is another strength statement for you during this time of difficulty. It’s just a way for you to see the brighter side, the higher side. To be lifted a little bit.

I had many discussions with Bob when he was alive, and he truly believed that statement, that tough times never last, but tough people do. You see, here's what happens. Robert knows, and I know, and I want you to know, that tough situations, tough times, if you get through them, make you tougher. In fact, the toughest time in difficulty is the first time because you're inexperienced and you're saying, what's happening to me and I don't understand it. And, it's when you begin to try to get on your feet. So, the toughest time is the first time because you're not sure how to overcome them. But as you consistently weather the tough times, you become tougher, not calloused. In fact, sometimes I think maybe a better word would be stronger. But here's what I know, the tough time you're going through and that I'm going through right now, it will not last. But you stay with me on Minute with Maxwell, and keep that positive mental attitude. Keep the motions going in a good way. And after this tough time is over, we'll look at each other and smile and I'll wink and I'll just kind of point to you and say, Hey, tough people, we lasted, didn't we?

Thanks for being with me today on Minute with Maxwell.
