Today’s ‘Live Better With Willie Jolley’ Tip: Find The Positive in Negative Times

Today’s tip for success is focused on helping you overcome this challenging economy. It is taken from my new book, Turn Setbacks Into Greenbacks. I met a gentleman one day who told me he saw me on television. He came up to me and started rattling off about how bad things were for his business and business in general. He said, “Did you hear about how bad things are here and how bad things are there? Did you hear that so-and-so lost their business? Did you hear?” Before he could go full steam head, I stopped him and said, “If you are looking for someone to commiserate with, you’ve got the wrong guy!” I am aware that there are some tough situations all around, but I decided I am not going to dwell on the problems. Instead, I am thinking and looking at all the great opportunities. Now is the time when the winners are made! I am working harder than ever, and I am planning to have my best year yet. I realize there are some challenges out in the business world; but wherever there are challenges, there are opportunities. This is a time to create success out of difficulties.
