The economy sucks for all of us. But hey, gas prices are coming down! Even in the midst of a dreary economy and all the scare tactics of the media, there are bright spots. Some people are taking advantage of the stock market being down. Others are buying houses at dirt cheap prices that they’ll later sell and make a killing on. And a few people are, against all odds, starting businesses.
We have to deal with the present. That’s just the way it is. And your situation may be different from mine. But, we both have a hand of cards we’ve been dealt and now we have to decide what to do with them. What we decide now is what will determine the cards we are dealt in the future – at least to some degree. There’s always going to be a wild card out there that can pop up at any time.
Some people get so caught up in the now that they can’t think about the future. But you must, because if you don’t then things will never change. And this readily applies to booklets as much as it does to getting into college, buying your first home, or planning for retirement. You have to plan your future, while living for today.
What this means to you as a booklet author is this. Don’t buy into all the doom and gloom and get so upset over it that you forget your dreams and your goals of becoming a booklet author. Many people with great ideas will never realize their dreams because they allow all the bad news to stop them. They think the economy’s bad so now is not the time to work toward their goals. But, if you don’t work on it now, then when will you? If you wait, if you put it off, it will just be that much longer before your dreams are realized.
It could be years before the economy is in good shape again. Do you want to be in the same situation you are today when the economy gets better? I certainly don’t. I want to keep progressing and moving forward in my business and my finances regardless of what the economy is doing or what anyone else thinks or does.
The opportunities are still there. In fact, there’s never been a better time to be a booklet author than right now. Businesses are scrambling, trying to find ways to stay afloat. They’re seeking anything that will help bring customers through their doors. You booklet might be just what they need. And regardless of what the economy does, people are still looking for love, falling in love, getting married, having babies, getting sick, getting well, gaining weight, losing weight, eating, going to the dentist, getting old and dying. There are things that people do in any economy, and you can capitalize on those things when you have related and relevant information that can help.
Deal with your present, but don’t stop working toward achieving your dreams. Your future depends on it, and so do your riches!
