WORDS TO SEE YOU THROUGH- Part 1
Remember the Doobie Brothers song that contained the words “Listen to the Doctor“ (1989 album “Cycles”- song “The Doctor”). Since I really am a doctor (M.D. Ophthalmologist), you can listen to me. “Trust me- I’m a Doctor!”
PRESCRIPTION 09 2018: No matter whether you are an entrepreneur, business owner or an employee, life is hard. In fact life is such that there will be good days and there will be bad days. Face it-don’t fight it. That would be like hoping against hope that it will never rain on a day where you have an important outdoor event. Really? Wishing like that is setting you up for 100% disappointment. Wishes like that are never going to happen. So what’s the lesson here? Don’t look at your business in totally unrealistic terms. A much safer, more realistic philosophy, which I highly recommend are the paraphrased wise words of Kody Bateman “It’s not what happens to you that matters, it is your RESPONSE that is the important thing!“ Your Response- my now Wiser Friend and Colleague! Will the inevitable business setback, disappointment lost sale, lost bid, etc. cause you to be deflated, shut you down, throw you into the depths of depression or make you think of quitting? No way my good friend! Listen to the doctor-draft the attitude known as SWSWSW- Next “some will, some won’t, so what” and it’s onto the NEXT opportunity. Even the biggest deal is not the end of the world, it’s just a temporary bump in the road and you can and will overcome it. You will, can and MUST overcome it.
Now, don’t you feel better already? Join me here next week for further elaboration on “your prescription”.
