Whether you think the economy is killing your business or you think the economy is supporting your business, you're right.
The destiny of your business is, with very rare exception, not determined by the economy.
So what determines the destiny of your business?
Your beliefs about the destiny of your businesss.
Think with me.
Your beliefs are nothing more (or less) than a feeling of certainty about a particular thing.
Whatever you are certain about, you act on.
What you act on determines your outcome.
To change the outcomes you are experiencing (in business or anything else), change your beliefs.
At the very least, examine them carefully.
If your beliefs are not supporting you… why would you cling to them?
You beat the economy by not believing you are its victim.
