There is No Reason Why You Can't Be Successful (A note from Sharp Skills)
The times in which we are living are undoubtedly some of the roughest we have seen in our lifetimes. The economy is shattered, societal values are unraveling, and it appears that no one has the answers. With this being the case, many who are economically challenged have no hope that their situation can ever change for the better. Many are waiting on the government to save them, but as we have seen, the government is even scratching its head on how to fix the financial crisis that many people are stuck in. I would like to suggest to you that your success in today's harsh economic times depends on You! It is reported that the Great Depression of 1929 produced many wealthy people. Contrary to popular belief, now is a great opportunity to launch businesses, approach new clients, invent things, and make creative ideas tangible. With God's help, we are our own solution. Rather than wallow in self pity, use the pain that you feel to become more focused, disciplined, and determined to turn your situation around. We learn and achieve the most when we are motivated by hardship. If you study about most millionaires and billionaires, they came from humble beginnings, but resolved to create a better life for themselves and their family. Begin to tell yourself that you can do it! As Og Mandino, the success guru, put it: "Failure is the highway to success". Unless you get out there and try something, anything, you will have no experience to improve upon and no springboard to launch from. I wish you the best in your endeavors. And always remember, "There is no reason why you cannot be successful".
