Today’s ‘Live Better With Willie Jolley’ Tip: Experience Is A Great Teacher

Today’s tip for success is focused on helping you over ome this challenging economy. It is taken from my new book, Turn Setbacks Into Greenbacks, which was released today. Recently on my XM Radio show, I interviewed Dave Yoho, who is a legend in the motivational speaking industry. He is now in his 80’s yet vividly remembers growing up through that Great Depression. During the interview, he spoke of the important economic lessons he had learned in his 80-plus years, such as the fact that world economies will have good times, followed by tough times; followed by good times, followed by tough times; and then back to good times!

Those who understand that setbacks are simply part of the business process are those who thrive; while those who dwell on the changes brought about by setbacks routinely falter. Mr. Yoho said, The fact is that economic setbacks are simply a part of life, and in life things change . . . and the secret is to not give up! Keep going and keep growing through the challenges. The key is to remember that these temporary setbacks can empower you to reach even greater levels of success. Stay positive and keep going. Things will change and you will be better because you didn’t give up.
