Build Your Business Using the Power of Belief
by Sandy Reed

As we were Christmas shopping recently, I noticed how full the parking lot was at the local shopping mall. The world would have us believe that there is no hope for our current business economy. They would have us believe that it's going to get much worse before it gets better. All you have to do is pick up a newspaper or watch the news on television to know that this is so. But is this really true?

What if you lived in a world in which there was no television or newspapers? Would your life be any different? Would you still look to the world outside to decide how you are supposed to approach your life and your business every day? Or would you do what you needed to do to ensure your business was strong and healthy, and expect that to be the truth?

We are on the verge of a brand new year, this is the time to go deep inside yourself and find what is true for you. I believe the truth is each and every one of us is a light in a seemingly dark world. We all have a light within us that can shine away the darkest conditions and create a world in which we all thrive. All we have to do is turn away from the fear and the naysayers and stay tenaciously determined to create the world we want -- not what someone else says is the "reality" they see for us.

In this glorious season of hope and excited anticipation, let's take back our power and make the decision to become a light in the world of darkness and gloom and doom predictions. Let's turn away from the seeming lack around us and accept the truth of the thriving that is apparent in so many places, if we only take the time to look. I believe this thriving is our birthright and can only be stifled by our own tendency to let the world outside tell us otherwise.

No matter what your conditions are right now, join me in making a unified effort to let the good in the world be the only thing you are willing to hold in your thoughts. Think about how much better you expect and intend your life and your business to be in 2009. Let's all prove the predictions of the economists and media wrong, because you're building your life right here, right now -- not in some future time. And most of all,because you don't know what you don't know . . .
