As we party away the last hours of 2010 today, I encourage us all to let go of any hardship this year has brought us (or our business) and embrace the positive possibilities ahead.
Perhaps the effects of this past year will be with us for a while, but that doesn’t mean we need to wrap them around us like a security blanket and wallow in pain. I recently asked the owner of a restaurant we frequent if he would like to be interviewed for this blog. “Its free, no obligation, yadda yadda yadda…” And his response: he didn’t think he would have anything positive to say!
He might make great food, but I’m sure not going to follow that self-defeating attitude! Personally, my challenges of this last year have shown me what fears I let dominate my thinking. Shine the light on these fears and they turn out to be big shadows of very tiny truths. Very tiny truths can be handled. They are nothing that will hold me back in this coming year.
