I was asked a question the other day by a meeting planner from San Diego, California. The question: what is my calling card? In other words, what makes me the perfect fit for their clients? I didn’t have to think too hard because in this economic climate the ultimate advantage is the ability to see what’s around the corner. This is the reason I have positioned myself as a leader in the field of Vision.
Right now the buzz word is RECESSION.
Webster and Wikipedia define recession as the following:
In economics, the term recession describes the reduction of a country’s gross domestic product (GDP) for at least two quarters. The usual dictionary definition is “a period of reduced economic activity”, a business cycle contraction.
Robert Kiyosaki, author of “Rich Dad Poor Dad,” investor, entrepreneur, and educator whose perspectives on money and investing fly in the face of conventional wisdom, states the following:
“There’s an old saying that goes: It’s a recession if your neighbor loses his job. It’s a depression if you lose your job.”
The bottom line is this no matter what you call it, talking about it and dwelling on it isn’t going to change anything. What matters is the way you perceive it and how you approach it!
The thing that means the most to me is assisting people in confronting their challenges and giving them the tools to rise above the current climate. The best way to do that is to sharpen your Vision toward the future. Be prepared mentally and physically. Anticipate the pitfalls and cliffs and have a creative solution for the journey ahead.
“The ability to see yourself in the future starts with the realization that the future starts in the present.” — Eric Bailey
Just because the economics of the world are looking gloomy doesn’t mean that our approach to life and our DREAMS has to follow suit.
