If you don’t think this economy hasn’t hurt us too you’re entirely wrong. The last 18 months have whacked us like we were “Sport” Higgins and the economy was Travis Bickle. Try making a living in the employment industry at a time when companies aren’t hiring. My checkbook looks like Joan Rivers without any makeup…it’s not a pretty sight.
But with all of that I still have much to give thanks for this “Thanksgiving.” For one reason, you’re reading these wacky words that I’m floating through this, “Series of tubes,” as United States Senator Ted Stevens called them. I’m also thankful that in spite of all my personal dilemmas, my kids are still happy and healthy. My wife…well that’s another story.
What you need to do for yourself now is give yourself a pat-on-the-back and start giving yourself credit for the things that you do have. Someone once told me that when you go to bed, give yourself a checklist.
Did you eat today?
Are you still breathing?
Do you still have a roof over your head?
If you can answer, “Yes” to all three then guess what? You won.
Nobody has a guarantee about tomorrow but it can still happen for you. What you need to do is give yourself the ability to win.
