Well, we almost went over the fiscal cliff. The economy isn’t booming. Unemployment is still up and the federal government has a massive debt problem. If you listen, watch, or read the news it seems very grim.
So, as an entrepreneur what is one of the most important things to consider this year?
Maybe we need to stop watching, listening, or reading the news! Especially, if doing so, makes us think negatively. For the most part, we can’t do anything about it. And it affects one of the most important things to consider in order to survive and thrive this year…our attitude!
If we think things are bad and we can’t succeed, we won’t. If we are resentful about how things are, it will affect our attitude and we won’t do our best because we will be handicapped by our feelings.
Think about the double amputee at the last summer olympics. How much did his positive attitude help him achieve what he did?
Think about the wounded soldiers that achieve great things because of their positive attitude.
Think about the entrepreneurs that are successful even though the economic times are not the best or even lousy. They look for opportunities, not obstacles. And mostly, they have positive attitudes!
How’s your attitude?
