Cheer Up! Get on your feet! Take Courage!

That's right; get up on your feet and get moving!  Make positive steps to make your situation better!

When I reflect upon my career of 40 years in Retail and Consulting, I recognize that I was always happiest when I was DOING something to solve a difficult situation either personally or professionally.  Taking specific, positive steps toward solutions.

It is SO EASY to allow the people around you, the pressures of the job, the stress of deadlines, and your own high standards to cause you to lose focus.

RIGHT NOW, as you read this, stop and consider the following facts, reflect on them, and then reassess your priorities, your schedule and your "to-do" list:
  1. You know more today than at any other time of your life.
  2. You are better trained and have more experience than at any other time of your life.
  3. You know more people now than at any other time of your life.  People who can help you!
  4. You are more savvy today than at any other time in your life about "how things work".
Just IMAGINE the ADVANTAGE you would have had when you were 18 years old, if you knew THEN what you know NOW!   Well, GUESS WHAT?   You DO know it now!

You are advantaged.  You have knowledge.  You have experience.  You are savvy.  You have friends who can help you.   

Move forward like the knowledgeable, experienced, savvy, connected person that you really are!
