She politely declined.
Here’s what she said,
“Dear economy, I am in receipt of your invitation to the recession you’re throwing. I have decided to decline. Good luck with that!”
This sums up what I’ve been talking about for the last few months…
The “recession” is a state of mind… and more importantly, a choice!
She is CHOOSING not to participate in the conversation of ‘recession’, therefore, her reality won’t show up that way.
Because as you know, when you think about recession, worry about recession, talk about recession… you get more recession.
There are people who are making millions…even BILLIONS – right now – in the midst of the so-called recession.
Why? They’ve chosen not to participate…
So can you.
A very smart friend of mine, referencing the state of the economy said, “Things are on sale right now…isn’t that what everyone wants…a good sale? You can buy some things cheaper than you could in the 90s…that’s a GOOD thing.”
He’s focusing on the positive aspects of what’s going on and because of that, opportunities are opening up for him that are “invisible” for those focused on doom and gloom.
Recently I bought a pair of D & G $550 eyeglasses for only $230! Just last week, I bought a set of $599 golf clubs for $199. I’m not complaining about that.
You have the power to choose how you want to view things. You can choose to attend the recession pity party or have one of your own.
Choose to see this as a time of never ending ‘sales’. Houses, cars, electronics…practically EVERYTHING is on sale right now.
Isn’t that cool?
If you ever wanted the ‘stuff’ that you couldn’t get before, now is the time. Between now and March of 2009, companies are going to be virtually giving stuff away.
You could really turn this into a powerful opportunity for yourself if you choose to look at this situation differently.
Ask yourself, “What opportunities are available to me because of this current situation?” You’ll be surprised with what you come up with.
If you’ve been laid off, this could be the time to start that business you’ve always wanted…
If your business is slow, this could be a great time to take the well-deserved vacation that you’ve been putting off.
And this goes for ANYTHING… not just finances. i.e. if your relationship just ended, this could be a chance for you to do some growth and personal development.
I could go on and on…
Change the way you see your situation and your situation will change…
