I Don't Believe in Hard Times

By
Mortgage and Lending with The John West Lending Team

You've heard the joke about hard times. When your friends are unemployed, its a recession. When you are unemployed, it's a depression. Well, don't believe it.

People get stuck in their beliefs about the economy. If we worry that there's inflation or deflation, our attitude will cause us to have difficulty because of recession or inflation. No matter how tough things get, you just can't let them get to you. You've got to program yourself to keep expecting and generating boom times. If you keep a boom times attitude, you'll soon be booming! Our minds and our imaginations can help us to ride out, to rise above and even prosper in times of both recession and inflation. 

In business, the standard procedure is to tighten the belt during lean periods in this economy. I have found this to be not so in highly success companies. I read that Bill Marriott expanded his hotel chain while others were pulling back. He virtually doubled the size of his company during that period. His philosophy was that while everyone else was laying off, he would hire, at lower salaries, superior people would be grateful to receive work. 

So hard times are nothing more than a state of mind. Change your state of mind and you can change the quality of your life, no matter what happens to the economy. 

My team and I will hold to this philosophy and would love to help you and your client's needs. Can we help you will any clients at this time?

Most things in life are cyclical and will happen again.  It is all in the perception on how we handle situations which determines how difficult you want to make it.
