In the world of sales, or small businesses we are constantly surrounded by a myriad of people. Many lately, have nothing but negatively to spew on everyone they come in contact with. Yes, its been a tough year and a tough winter, but let’s put it into perspective.
I have been listening to the Success Magazine Symposium speakers from last years event. What some amazing leaders! I was especially intrigued by some of the stories John Addison told. He talks about leaders -vs- “ExcuseAholics.” We need to lead those around us through these tough times. Things will get better! He relays a story from a biography about Andrew Jackson.
When Andrew Jackson was President, there was the 1837 Banking Crisis that hit America. The Louisiana Purchase just went through and there were a lot of people out west speculating in land. Many deals and flips were taking place. Well, this caused the banks to go broke. One newspapers headline was, “The End of Banking in America…”
Well, a lot of great things have happened since then. Let’s start dreaming, innovating and looking to what we can do and those lives we can change and be the leader in your world and with everyone you come in contact with on a daily basis. Like The Beautiful Mind say, “Feed your Dreams and Starve your Nightmares!” Learn to Dream again and laugh and inspire. These are my goals for 2010, what are yours?
So, this video is a toast to a happy, healthier, inspired you! Enjoy!
