As I am writing this, the world is currently knee deep in recession. There is a lot of negative talk, and various doom sayers. I would like to take this opportunity say to those downers, THINK POSITIVE. A recession is a state of mind. If everyone continues to think that we are all doomed, then we will all be doomed. The mind is a powerful tool. If you really concentrate, all things become possible. To those of of you that have lost your job, think positively. Use this time to reflect on what you really want to be doing in life, instead of thinking about the current situation. Every challenge in life is merely a gateway to new opportunities.
