BE A POSSIBILITY THINKER  Although it wasn’t always natural for me, I’ve become a possibility thinker; the kind I heard about when I was growing up. Thanks to my grandpa, Dr. Robert H. Schuller, I have grown into a person who believes that seeing a world where anything is possible makes me smarter, more successful, and believe it or not, more moral.

Without a doubt, those are the best gifts to give, aren’t they? And isn’t it interesting how it never feels like a burden to spend countless hours and energy thinking about, and looking for, the perfect gift?
