It’s more than:
An on-going catalyst for new ideas
A resource for getting your message across
A vehicle for refreshing/ re-directing your organizational culture

A personal coach to help you create a life instead of fixing problems
A pipeline for unique ideas and resources to which you
wouldn’t otherwise have access.
An insurance policy against being left behind

Jane sounds off on the power of attitude…
I don’t know about you, but I’ve decided not to take part in the recession. Not that I haven’t had plenty of encouragement to participate. The news is full of gloom. Former Chief Justice Earl Warren said, “I always turn to the sports page first…it records people’s accomplishments; the front page, nothing but man’s failure.”
It’s true, the front page chronicles everything from Beavis and butthead to the rising national debt.
The nightly news covers violent crime, terrorism, fires and floods, unemployment, and hopelessness. Give me a break.
In the early days of the computer revolution, a phrase was coined: “garbage in, garbage out.” We had to admit that faulty data was caused by bad input.
Bad assumptions in, bad data out. It’s the same with our lives. If we don’t like the results we’ve got, we can take a look at the assumptions that produced them.
Recent research indicated the average adult in the country watches 6.5 hours of television a day. The average 18 year old has watched over 19,000 hours of TV, more time than spent in class.
And isn’t it edifying?
Just watching two or three talk shows is enough to make you feel like a victim, powerless over your circumstances.
But we do have a choice; a choice to believe the possible or the impossible. And we can choose to surround ourselves with either.
Does all this sound different from your perception?
Maybe it’s time to change your input.
So while the prophets of doom whine about the recession and how America has peaked and our hopes lie in the redistribution of resources,
I choose to focus on growth and opportunity.
Sometimes it’s not easy—it takes an ongoing, relentless choice to fill my mind and heart and, yes, my spirit with good news.
And to surround myself with others who do.
But it works. This year is the best year ever for my business.
And next year will be booming.
