A Positive Attitude Is Great But…
There are plenty of reasons to be positive about things in this world and in your life. Still…it’s good to face reality and take it head on even if it doesn’t agree with your positive outlook. As a creative content writer it’s part of my job to observe how emotions, outlooks on life, and even major events in life are all components of actions, reactions, and habits. Don’t fall victim to these tactics.
For instance…there are three positions you can take on just about any issue:
Numbers 1 and 3 can mix together. Numbers 2 and 3 can blend, too. But numbers 1 and 2 are total opposites. Now a hired gun content writer can take an issue like unemployment and report it from either of the first two positions. First…pessimism can say “unemployment is up to 6%”. Or optimism could say 94% of people who want to work are working. The numbers represent the same thing, but they sure don’t sound the same, do they?
The only reason I’m bringing this up is because it’s a new year. 2013 is brand new. And you’re gonna hear a lot of spin where the “fiscal cliff” is concerned. Watch carefully how the different parties on both sides of the issue portray the problems…and so-called solutions.
Don’t let your guard down. Keep working diligently on your personal economy, and don’t be swayed by “good news” or dismayed by “bad news”. Keep your eyes on the prize. Even if giant corporations crumble around you, it doesn’t mean the money vaporizes. It just means it changes hands. And that means it’s still available to you, too.
Focus is the watchword for me this year. I hope you’ll join me.
We can achieve what we focus on.
