Everyone has problems. That's what it means to be human.
Everyone has problems. That's what it means to live in this world.
Then why is it that some people are able to thrive and live to the hilt while others get tripped up by one problem after another? Why is it that some people are over-comers while others get overcome by the problems?
The problem is the way we see problems.
Winston Churchill said, "An optimist sees an opportunity in every calamity; a pessimist sees a calamity in every opportunity."
This is what separates leaders from followers. Leaders see an opportunity to grow and learn from challenges. Leaders look for solutions to the problems they face and make their world and the world around them a better place.
The problem is not problems. The problem is with the way we see problems.
What the world with problems need are leaders who can seize the opportunities that every problem presents.
