Let’s talk for just a moment about having a positive attitude and how important it is. Since I opened my business I can remember everyone telling me, “You’re so lucky”, “everything always just works out for you”, and “things come easy to you”. Let me clarify… none of this is correct. I work hard, put in long hours, have a positive attitude about almost everything that comes my way, and every single morning, before I put my feet on the floor, I tell myself how awesome my day is going to be. You can ask my husband if you don’t believe me… I say it out loud. Every day! Does that change my fate? Does that make me lucky? I have no idea. However, with a combination of convincing myself that everything happens for a reason and that every day is a great day, people are right… Things do happen for me!
I get to talk to a lot of business owners every single day. It is amazing how many people I talk to who come in my office or I chat with on the phone who tell me how awful they are doing, business is terrible, they don’t have enough clients, they can’t pay their bills, the economy is awful, and they just don’t want to deal with people. Well, from a mother, business owner, shopper and consumer, if someone is putting out this information why in the world would they think people would want to do business with them… or even be around them. Sitting around and having a pity party is not going to get you anywhere. Get up and do something about it. Start with changing your attitude, get out to some networking events, go out and meet your potential clients. People like to do business with busy people.
