Everyday the pundits are predicting whether we headed for a recession or not. What does it matter? While they make their predictions you could be taking actions to insure you don't participate. Regardless of the economy or the circumstances you don't have to be effect unless you go into agreement with the conditions.

The media continues to promote the possibility of a recession, a slow down and a pull back. Call it what you will, it doesn't have to affect you! The fact that some will be affected does not necessarily mean YOU will be affected. Just because it is flu season doesn't automatically mean you have to get the flu. Just because there is a car wreck on the highway doesn't mean you have to be involved in it. It is only your impression of what happens that ultimately affects you.

If you choose to expand at this time and follow that decision up with actions then you will expand. If you elect to contract then you will contract.

Personally these are my favorite times, economically, as they cause others to introvert and contract (pull in) while I continue to expand and extrovert (expand). My competitors get smaller and I get bigger. I love it!

Real estate, automobiles, lending, retail all have expectations of lower sales. So what! Recession doesn't mean STOP. It means recess. So don't take a recess! So what if there is a 10-20% pullback?  That leaves 80% for you to focus on.  You probably didn't get any of that extra twenty percent last year anyway. Does it mean it might not be as easy? Maybe, maybe not! Look, if you don't stay focused, don't work every opportunity everyday, and don't have and maintain a good attitude it will be more difficult.

It is only your "impression" that decides whether you will be affected by "the recession." Your mindset, your actions and the decisions you make everyday will determine whether you participate in "the recession".

Don't participate in "the recession" Disagree with it and maximize every opportunity available to you. Get my program, "Maximizing Every Opportunity." It will show you how to make the most of every possible opportunity available to you!
