MINUTE WITH MAXWELL
TODAY’S STATEMENT OF STRENGTH
“A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.” -Winston Churchill
Winston Churchill said, ‘A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity and the optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.’ Wow! Welcome to Minute with Maxwell. Hi, my name is John. I'm glad you're with us as I share with you that statement of strength from Mr. Churchill.
Flip Wilson, the comedian, my age so you don't know who he was. But Flip Wilson was a comedian and he had another way of saying it. He'd just basically look at you in a flippant way and say, ‘What you see is what you get.’ How true that is. And so, the question is when I look at adversity, do I see the problem or do I see the possibility?
When I was a young man in my 20s, Robert Schuller wrote a book called, Move Ahead with Possibility Thinking. I'll never forget how I read and reread and marked up that book. Because basically, he was saying, ‘What would you do if in every challenging situation, you saw the possibilities in it?’ Well, the answer is you would proceed, you would go forward. The problem is instead of possibility thinking, we have problem thinking. Today, I would just encourage you see the possibilities and watch them become possible in your life.
Thanks for joining me today on Minute with Maxwell.
