Uncertain Times

These are uncertain times, but if you look at history with a critical eye you will find that all times have their uncertainty. Just the same the economic situation is very uncertain today, much more so than is typical.

You could react with fear, insecurity, anxiousness, and panic. You could become depressed. You could fear the worst: loss of income or job, financial disaster, collapse of the economy, bankruptcy, ruination. It is easy to dwell on these negatives.

Nothing is ever gained by worry, and nothing is gained by worrying about what could happen. Yes, any of those bleak possibilities could come to pass, but you need to ask yourself three questions if you find these worries weighing on your mind:

1. How can worry about those possibilities prevent them?

2. Isn’t it true that the worst case scenario I worry about rarely ever happens?

3. Even if I faced financial ruin, wouldn’t I still have the most important things in my life: my health, my mind, my family, and my friends?

Worry does no good. What does work is to think and plan for your future. Create greater value in you by gaining new knowledge and skills making you more marketable and reducing the chance that you will face financial ruin. The answer to the challenges of the future – the challenges that change inevitably bring to us all, is to strive to learn new things so we can adapt to the changing world. You should always learn, your education never should end. You can learn new skills, such as a new language or how to use computers in new ways or how to speak in public or how to sell. You can learn from reading the biographies of people who have overcome difficulty in their lives and become successful, sometimes “against all odds”.

Do not let worry and fear paralyze you or depress you. Keep moving forward. Remember that a positive mental attitude is an absolute necessity to be successful. Learn more, read more, study more, improve yourself more! The more you do these things the more valuable you become to the market place. The more valuable you are, the more your services will be in demand, and the more the market place will pay for your services. The more valuable you are the better you will be at overcoming and surviving difficult times and continuing to build your personal success.

Don’t worry. Keep learning. Stay positive. Move forward. Improve yourself. Sell yourself. Do these things consistently and continually and you will no longer fear uncertain times.

Wishing you success in all you do.
