Businesses are the sum of our experience

Keeping a positive attitude will help you find more opportunities

Have you ever wondered what would have happened if?

We are the sum of our experiences not only due to the chain of events linked from our birth to now, but also because as we make decisions and experience the consequences of those decisions it impacts future decisions of a similar nature.

Personally I like where I am and would never want to change a thing; even though there have been many experiences I definitely do not want to go through again.

So what does this have to do with business?

Our business, in the same way that we are the sum of our experiences is the sum of opportunities both taken and passed.

Opportunities in the business world present themselves constantly. Some are not noticed, some we pass on and some we seize and run with.

I want to always be in a position to both notice and take advantage of any opportunity, whether it is as simple as an act of kindness or as complex as an offering that needs serious analysis before moving forward.

Everything is an opportunity; everyone we meet is a potential lead or new customer, or even the source of an idea that may move our business to a new level.

Keeping a positive attitude will allow you to see more opportunities and taking advantage of those opportunities will help your business grow and flourish and everything depends on your attitude.

Attitude gems lead to attitude AHAs — those single moments in time where something happens, or someone says something, and suddenly you get it — suddenly you scream AHA!

‘Tis the season to be jolly and the season for being jolly in reality should stretch from January 1 to December 31.

Let’s all adopt a positive attitude, be nice to all we meet and see if business flourishes.

The Parksville and District Chamber of Commerce wishes you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Prosperous New Year.
