Are we talking ourselves out of business? There is so much negative news constantly broadcast that is it any wonder that people are feeling deflated.
No one is in any dispute that these are unprecedented times, as anyone trying to run a business will tell you but keep telling ourselves that we are struggling to survive is counterproductive and very harmful.
Through adversity comes strength, determination and enlightenment. When our lives change and we can no longer function in the same old way we have to adapt and rethink the next move.
Fear is a paralysing emotion, it stops us functioning productively it makes us question our judgments but we have to 'push through' our fears and explore new pastures.
No one can give us a guaranteed future all we can do is remain focused, open minded and forward thinking. If a door opens don't be afraid to walk through it, go inside and take a look around you might just be pleasantly surprised.
