My wonderful friend Frances Hesselbein (former CEO of the Girl Scouts and recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom) has a saying that I love. She says, when asked what her blood type is, “Be Positive!” This is her philosophy and it helps her navigate through challenges in a positive way.
I love her outlook and I look for it in others as I travel around the world. How do people meet challenges and view change in a positive way? Here are some of the comments I’ve heard from friends, leaders, and students about how to view and manage difficulties in a positive and constructive way.
Personally, I’m very grateful to have the opportunity to communicate with you, my readers. Many of you have sent me wonderful comments and e-mails. I have learned so much from you, and I am very appreciative for your interest in what I write.
“Great is the need of the student to learn — far greater is the need of the teacher to teach.” As a teacher, trying to help you — even a little — adds value to my life. Thank you!
