  1. Shannon, great message and one I’ll listen to a few more times. One of my favorite sayings is “Attitudes are more important than facts because you can’t change the facts but you can change your attitude”. Also, for some instant inspiration, I like to watch the Susan Boyle Youtube video.

  2. Avoiding bad news and other negative influences is hardly an ideal that should be adopted or promoted. Congress has been doing that for months and what is the result, a shutdown. The same is true in the broader world. We heard the same tidbits throughout the Great Recession from those who wanted to control the outlook of others.

    Not long ago you commented on a blog endorsing the Stockdale Paradox. Vice Admiral Stockdale lived his life particularly in a North Vietnamese prison using this view: “You must never confuse faith that you will prevail in the end—which you can never afford to lose—with the discipline to confront the most brutal facts of your current reality, whatever they might be.”

    Life needs to be balanced but like the ostrich hiding from what is actually is going, leaves the ostrich more exposed to events than if it were observing them as they occurred so we need to confront what it is our current reality.

    Just this week one marketer suggested how we can be just as successful in the next three months as we were in the prior three. He simply applied what our product is like today to the market as whole in light of a future event which will disqualify even more seniors.

    The most successful do not run away from negatives but rather see them as opportunities.

    • Cynic,

      Very true…we shouldn’t avoid bad news but rather attempt not to overindulge in negative news which tends to continuously loop the same story in the media. Thank you for commenting and reminding us to be aware of negatives and how to turn them into opportunities.

  3. Great uplifting broadcast for a Friday! I would only add one thing … that is .. to give thanks for what you have. I’m thankful for your videos and industry knowledge sharing.
