Give Yourself an Attitude Adjustment or Hire a Coach to Kick You in the Rear

Yes, I know it's tough out there. Negative news assaults us daily and it's difficult to keep getting up out of bed and going to work.

But we have to!

What's the alternative?
Give up? Get depressed?
Believe that we're never coming out of this?
Infect others with our bad attitude?

If you know me, you know that the paragraph above is not my philosophy. It does however sound just like a prospect I spoke to on Monday. I was giving her the GIFT of a sample coaching session. She was hostile, cynical and completely antagonistic in her attitude regarding what to do about her failing business. She said "It's tough out there, in case you haven’t noticed. People are putting guns to their heads in desperation. No one is open to investing in my product."

Well – I HAVEN'T NOTICED. Because I'm not sitting around on my rear waiting for business to come to me all the while complaining and moaning about how unfair life is.

What have you done today or this week to get new business???
Who have you called?
Who have you visited?
What new marketing strategy or technique have you employed?
What new BRAND have you created for your business?

People want to do business with entrepreneurs who are positive, action-oriented and solution-minded. So get yourself a new, CAN DO attitude and get out there.

You must start preparing for tomorrow TODAY. If you wait you will be left behind in a sea of failure.

If you don't know what to do, hire a coach and reinvent yourself. A professionally-trained coach will look at your business with new eyes and help you create a strategy to lift you up and take you to the moon.

An attitude adjustment will do you a world of good.
