The stock market is up, the economy is down, government temporary jobs are up and private sector jobs are down. All indications are we are headed toward another market dip as the economy still hasn't recovered from the last dip.
You have to ask yourself, is your business contracting with the economy or expanding regardless of the economy? In other words, are you making your own way or are you making excuses because the media, your customers and clients, and your colleagues are telling you how bad it is?
It's simply too easy to cave into the negativity, because everyone around you is moaning how bad it is and how there's no jobs available. Well I'm here to call BS on those of you selling this garbage story. Everywhere I go, and in every industry I see people and businesses crushing it everyday and laughing at the rest of everyone who's complaining and whining.
You see, they know a dirty little secret, and it really is as simple as this little secret. I see all the bad just like everyone else, and I also interact and see those making a difference and winning huge while everyone else is moaning.
Wanna' know the secret? Here it is, stop complaining and blaming everyone else and the economy for your problems and start accepting 1000% responsibility for everything in your life. You're in control. Own what's happening, own your circumstances and take 100x's more action than everybody else.
Am I joking? HELL NO! Winners don't blame, they look in the mirror to improve. Winners, and there are lots of them, are making their way expanding their businesses - not contracting like all the other whiners out there (not you and your company of course).
As for my business, training is always the first budget item that gets cut when economic challenges arise. Summer time is also the slowest time of year in the training world. So how's my business? We had our busiest summer yet, on track for our busiest most productive and profitable year to date, and I'm HIRING - that's right, I'm expanding not contracting.
My dirty little secret; I've accepted 1000% responsibility for everything in my life, and I'm busting my butt out-working my whining competitors. It's both an easy and hard secret to accept. The question is, do you want to expand are get owned?
