NO one in our life time has had to deal with the misinformation, fear, disruption and chaos currently being hurled at us right now on a daily basis.

But we cannot allow others to take over our mindset and attitude, no matter how much they want to burn down the world. We have to be strong, and with a laser-beam focus wield our Power of Choice when deciding how to best use our mental, physical, emotional, and financial energy right now. We have to make Lemonade out of Lemons and BE Real Leaders and Positive Role Models for others.

When you decide to choose your response to challenging circumstances, you powerfully affect your future. Taking responsibility to focus on the highest and best possible outcome steers you away from victimhood, and towards new, exciting business opportunities. You must have visionary thinking when it comes to your future.

I call this Flying into the Future with your mind so you can acknowledge the possible changes happening in your world. When you know one or more of these changes is headed your way, you must arm yourself with information that keeps you balanced and conscious to prevent stress and panic, regardless of whatever little mess you find yourself in.

No one makes good decisions when they’re trapped in an unresourceful state of mind or caught off guard. In fact, most of us can trace bad decisions to when we reacted to a situation instead of acting in a manner that served us.

Arm yourself with the tools and information that will help you deal with whatever changes come your way, so you can achieve your goals. As one of my personal Favorite sayings tells us: It is better to be over-rehearsed than ambushed!

Think about the possibility of new, exciting opportunities for operating your business so you can be happy instead of afraid, dreading what might happen. Remember, you’re always a self-fulfilling prophecy. YOU design your future with your thoughts, expectations, behaviors, and actions. If something hasn’t been working for you, it’s TIME TO CHANGE IT. Shift your mind to get new results.

The old saying: “Success in life is 80 percent attitude and 20 percent aptitude” is true. You can learn anything you’re willing to spend the time and energy to learn. It’s your attitude that will make the difference, if you are open to change.

No matter what kind of business you run, there are going to be days that are filled with problems. The news is negative, employees let you down, and competition is beating you up. You feel exhausted from making decisions, and challenging things constantly happen. But when you give yourself permission to let go of what doesn’t work and make a decision on what you want, you clearly start to take control of your life and future.

Instead of dreading change, re-frame your life. In the end, the people who thrive and prosper are the ones who have the Prescriptive attitude and then take ACTION.

Successful people take charge of the caliber of information that reaches their brain. So be aware when you’re engaging in negative self-talk, and learn how to stop it in its tracks. Mastering this skill is one of the habits of the wealthy. Negative self-talk leads to a negative view of life that will impact your future and keep you from reaching greatness.

Remember you get in life what you focus on. If you dwell on limitations, you will reach them. You will have a better life in every way if you make the least of the worst while making the most of the best.
