|GET FOCUSED. GET CONTROL. GET GROWING.|
When Life Hands You Lemons, Make Lemonade
“In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity." Albert Einstein
Looking back at the year that was – what a ride! We endured the intense, seemingly endless and bitter election process. The housing market continues its downward spiral. The financial mess worsens as the government bailout grows. Crimes of every flavor increase within this atmosphere of fear. Was this a tough year? You bet.
The most resilient people find opportunities within challenges by staying focused during times of stress. They turn scarcity into abundance; they shift a problem into a gift; they use slowdowns to regroup. Let’s look at ways you can stabilize your business during these difficult times:
The moral of the year 2008 is that now is the time for change. Make the best of the present and create more of what you want for the future. Pass on the standard heavy eggnog and go for the refreshing lemonade (with its fewer calories). The times call for tightening the belt, literally and figuratively. It’s not surprising that people connect more and become closer during these times. When they spend more time together they discover things they hadn’t noticed in the past, the good in each other and in the world. These people are the survivors and the ones who help others do the same.
Our troubles feel lighter when we help those less fortunate. In that spirit, a donation has been made in honor of my readers, clients and colleagues to Project Bread. I wish you and your families a happy holiday and a peaceful year in 2009. I appreciate your trust and confidence now and as we make our way together through the days ahead.
