Fear the Future? 3 Ways to Move Forward

Fear the Future? 3 Ways to Move Forward

Itís true we live in a time of questionable economic stability, nobody knows where to step or whatís coming next. Itís also true that without balance, timing, and know-how, surfing is impossible. Realizing that navigating the waves of flux in the economy is as simple as reading the landscape, balancing on an unsteady platform, and timing your market are they keys to success.

More millionaires were made during the great depression than during any other time in history. We stand at the forefront of a tremendous opportunity to top that record.

I could have tried to work around the programs offered or commute to a private school, but moving was the answer. I could have fought the answer to the problem, but would have ended up at the same answer anyway. Recognize when you have the answer, and then act on it.

Recognize when you learn something new, in business or life, everyday. Youíll be surprised when you find a reason you needed to know it. And delighted to realize you do. The world is moving at the speed of thought, and changing everyday. What wasnít possible yesterday is entirely possible next week. So keep your ears and eyes open and youíll spot the opportunities that come knocking.

As the Queen of,†”oooh, shiny thing…”†ADD, focus is often more difficult than anything else. But concentrated effort provides the greatest results. Think if you were to try and clean crayon off the wall….Continue reading at

fear can be a great motivator in proper realistic proportions - when it rules your life, it becomes destructive - "the best way to predict the future is to create it" - live the future you desire

Face it, you can't change the world, only yourself.

If you're not satisfied with yourself at day's end ... revisit the day, make a plan for the new day, follow through. If that doesn't do it for you, try again ... and again ... and again.

Never stop trying, there is peace within your personal space.
