It seems as if every day when you open the newspaper – or go online, more likely – there is a story about the economy. On some days, you get the news that Canada is rebounding nicely from the recent recession. And on others, it appears as if our nation is a long way from finding its financial footing.
Perhaps, it depends on who is providing the news. Then again, maybe it all has to do with your perspective on what financial success is. This perspective is likely different for people all over Canada. Business owners, of course, have strong opinions about the state of the national economy which are derived mainly from their own successes.
“It hasn’t been easy,” said one of our clients earlier this week, “But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try your best to overcome (the recession). Working hard has always been a major part of being successful, so you there’s no need to stop now. I’ve always worked at making my business successful, recession or not.”
At the end of the day, one can only do so much to help his or financial situation not head towards a dire destination. There are, however, certain individuals who allow bad news to affect them negatively. A negative reaction, naturally, is expected when bad news is heard. But having a defeatist attitude is another thing altogether.
“When the recession hit, I have to admit that business slowed down dramatically,” another of our clients told us, “It got me pretty upset. I can honestly say that I spent several weeks complaining about it, instead of thinking of ways to fix the situation. I regret that time now, but I’m so glad things have turned around.”
One of the reasons we have been speaking to our clients about their current financial states is because we enjoy maintaining strong relationships with them. After all, the more successful our clients are, the better it is for our business as well. It’s important to note, however, that growing a business is always a tough task, no matter what state the national economy is in.
But when you’re a business owner in the midst of a nation’s rebounding process, the task is even tougher. “It requires a good attitude,” continued the once downtrodden entrepreneur, “Feeling bad about it certainly isn’t going to help you any. Getting yourself back on your feet begins with your own sense of determination.”
