Are you and your business in a slump?

Let’s face it, the economy is affecting the majority of business owners, including us.

We aren’t impervious to what the market is doing or how people are thinking and behaving, so that leaves us, and you, with only two options:

* One, you can succumb to the outside influences and allow them to control your thinking and behaviors.
* Or two, you can ask yourself a question that will help you focus on what must happen in order for you to stay in total control of your thought patterns and actions, no matter what is happening around you.

Now, is it easy? Of course not. However, what’s the alternative?

You can react to the circumstances surrounding you and succumb to the feelings and horrible results they’ll provide you… or, you can adjust your sails and plan how to stay positive and plan what you can do now, when you are faced with these types of situations, to make it through the storm.

As a matter of fact, with the right thinking and actions, you can come out of the storm better off!

It’s the calm person who observes, analyzes and then takes prudent action who wins during economic downturns.

You must remember that it all starts with your mindset. When you change the way you look at something…the thing that you look at changes. Change your perspective right now, and start positioning yourself as the leader in your field.

So with that said, what’s the one thing that you can do right now to create a shift in your perspective and mindset? Do not worry about 10 things, just one thing right now.

Next, what one thing that when you start doing it today, will have a significant positive impact on your business?

By the way, that one thing can be something you start right now, or something you must stop doing right now.

A small shift in thinking and behavior will yield big results over time. It’s like shifting the direction of an airplane just one percent – do that and you arrive at a totally different destination!

Chose your destination now, then set your course and do it.

To your success!
