The greatest challenge is stating the problem in a way that will allow a solution.

Contribute to the Solution

It's said you will only be remembered for one of two things: the problems you solve or the ones you create.

Making a Difference: You don’t have to make a global impact in order to make a difference.

Think about a former boss, colleague, college roommate, old neighbor, past love relationship, childhood friend, previous business partner, high-school math teacher, etc. Each person either solved problems or created them for you. They either helped you and improved you or caused you grief and brought you down. Now get on the other side of that list: How does each of these people remember you? For the problems you solved for them or the ones you created?

For all the people you touch every day, you make an indelible difference in their world.  Set a goal each day:  How many blessings can you dispense?  How many worlds can you make a positive difference in? The world most affected by this giving will be yours.  Your area of influence.

What one thing can you do to make a difference in someone’s life in the next few days.
