Is the cup half full or half empty? Is it partly sunny or partly cloudy? Is it the beginning or the end? Are we headed for, already in or heading out of a recession? Is it a GREAT time to buy a house or not?
With all the fear based media out there, it seems we are in war of optimism vs pessimism. There seems to be three perspectives vying for our attention. One reports good news, one reports bad news and then you have the middle of the road reports which balance the the bad and good news equally (the safe zone). Frankly, I’m tried of it all and I don’t believe I’m the only one.
Perception is EVERYTHING today! What you believe, how you view things, how you interpret information is the key to success today. It’s not about waiting for the perfect time, it’s about making this your perfect time. If your decision doesn’t turn out as you hoped, you can still turn the results into an opportunity. People need to stop waiting for the perfect timing, because all they are doing is MISSING an opportunity!!!
Change is good; without it, we do not grow. No matter how bad the news is, an opportunity is hidden in the midst of the news. It is change that creates opportunity. More new businesses are started during turbulent economic times. Why? Because someone saw an opportunity, they saw a need and they attempted to fill the need; and their idea grew!
People typically hate change, because change forces them to move out of their comfort zone. Yes people are losing their jobs and homes, but their loss is another’s gain. Why not make it your gain? Losing your job? It’s an opportunity to start a new job (a beginning–not an ending). Yes there are scams out there, but don’t let that scare you from moving ahead. Trust me, someone is going to take advantage of the situation, why not you?? You need to choose to focus on the good and you need to build a circle of trusted people you can work with if you are going to move out of your comfort zone.
