I get to have a lot of fun and hang around some awesome people as a SWFL Coach. You know what the biggest thing that usually holds back small business owners? You guessed it, THEM! One of the biggest breakthroughs I have had with clients is when I get through to them on the importance of being happy versus right.

Some people find fault like there is a reward for it!

Some small business owners look for the fault and problem with everything. When the media, their family or their neighbors are beating them over the head on how bad the economy is, sometimes they get in the groove of looking for ways to prove to themselves that the economy is bad and life is hard. WHAT IS THE POINT IN THAT? When you look for problems, issues and fault, guess what you will find? Problems, Issues and Faults! You experience what you expect and you attract what you focus on. Isn’t it interesting that some people are thriving in this economy while others are beating the drum of “it’s tough to make money”, “it’s tough to make money”, “it’s tough to make money”. Unless you like “telling it like it is”…stop telling it like it is! Tell a new story! Tell the story that you are on your way to great ideas and abundance. Tell yourself that everyday, in every way you get better and better! Tell yourself that people have created great things out of nothing and massive fortunes were made out of tough times in the past and it can be done again! Instead of proving yourself right on how bad things are…choose to be happy! Be grateful that you have the eyes to read this, the ears to hear the birds outside, the arms to hold onto the ones you love, food on the table, water in your cup, blood in your veins. Before you can have anything new and wonderful in your life, you have to be grateful for the things you do have. Stop your need for being right and simply choose to be happy. Do you know people that love to argue? They have probably gotten very good at this over their lifetime haven’t they? Let me ask you this…are those types of people typically happy?
