I went on a one day cookery course yesterday. It was a birthday present, and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Lots of fun and laughter, and lots of excellent food (cooked by ourselves) all in a great setting at Braxted Park. Of course everyone had arrived there with the intention of having a good day, so the chances were that it would be, but thrusting 12 people together none of whom knew each other, could have been quite quiet, which would definitely have been less enjoyable if that had been the case.
The thing is, it is all about making the best out of every situation you are in. No doubt we all end up going to things we don’t want to go to, and doing things we don’t want to do, but once you are there and doing it, you may as well make it as good as it possibly can be. It is all about your attitude and frame of mind. If you are determined to have a bad time, no doubt you will, and if you decide to have fun, equally well, the likelihood is that you will.
The same rules apply to your business. If you get into a rut of negativity (which is quite easy at the moment) you start to expect things to go wrong. You stop expecting to convert new leads, and instead of preventing bad things from happening, sub-consciously you let them occur, and then just shrug and assume that the world is working against you.
However, now is the time to keep thinking as positively as possible (not easy I grant you). The more you keep on believing that things will get better, the more you do to re-inforce that belief. In due course, if you do enough of the positive things, then good things will start to happen, and your business will once again start to thrive.
