In this economy...
I won't bother getting up early, because there is no business anyway.
I won't make many calls, because - "Who is hiring?"
I'll go out to lunch with friends, because nothing is happening.
ARE YOU CREATING YOUR OWN RECESSION?
If you are thinking like this, you are.
I did some heavy business development today. Since everyone has been bellyaching about the economy, I didn't expect much.
Guess what - I was swamped. I had a tough time making my way through all the calls I needed to make. I have tons of calls scheduled for the next week.
The business is out there people. Your competitors have probably psyched themselves out of trying very hard because they have convinced themselves it isn't worth it.
Step back and reaccess.
Try something different.
Wake up in a positive frame of mind tomorrow. Tell yourself the recession is over - and it will be - for you.
