What is the REAL problem with business in America today?
With all that is affecting the psyche of American business today is it no wonder that we seem like a pig stuck in the mud, wallowing in the muck, going nowhere with seemingly no end in sight. In most of the major polls, confidence as a whole is questionable at best. Anyone that you talk with knows of someone personally or has a story about a business that has come on hard times. It seems as if everyone has been affected in one way or another.
Throughout our great history as a nation we have dealt with events that we could not have ever imagined. We have endured wars, Presidential Assassinations’, even the Great Depression. Yet things have always turned out fine. We did it as a country because we believed in our innate ability to persevere. The American Sprit has always been one of an unrelenting belief. A confidence in our ability to “make it happen”.
So what can we do to solve this Crisis of Confidence?
Now more than ever we need to focus on the POSITIVE! It starts with each individual keeping a positive mental attitude. Stay away from negative people, places, and things that cause you to react negatively. Think about how you feel when you walk into a business and you are greeted with a friendly smile and a warm welcome. Pay attention to what makes you and your business great. It has been said that 90% of what happens is out of our control. Control the things you can with a positive mind set.
You can control your ATTITUDE, EFFORT, and FOCUS! Make a commitment to be positive in all aspects. It is infectious and it can start an incredible wave of optimism for all
