How do you feel, about the future of your business?
Most business owners are pretty optimistic and will say that they are looking to 2012 with optimism. This is great. You can achieve a lot more with optimism, than with pessimism. Pessimists seldom create anything.
Generally, there are 2 types of optimism:
Fact based optimism
This is where you can see the plans you have made coming into fruition. It’s where you look at the strategies you have in place and genuinely feel confident that next year will be better than last year. Every year, I work with people who see their businesses and their lives transformed, through doing the right things correctly.
This is where you want things to be better next year, so you keep telling yourself that everything will be fine, but you have not improved your strategy. The reality is that if we keep on doing what we have been doing, we will keep on getting what we have been getting. Nothing improves, until we do. If we want better results, we need to take better action.
In short: Look to 2012 and beyond with optimism, based on the fact that you will be doing the right things, correctly. Things don’t just get better by themselves.
