P – is for predictors which help us mold our future
R – is for reminders – a reminder we cannot succeed alone
O – is for opportunities that pull us out of the ruts, prompting us to think creatively
B – is for blessings – opening doors we would otherwise not go through
L – is for the lessons that provide instruction with each new challenge
E – is for everyone – no one is excluded
M – is for messages – warning of the potential disasters
S – is for solvable which reminds us that for every problem, there is a solution.
