Good Moods in business

I cant believe the difference that the nicer weather is making to peoples moods.  I had a person say to me yesterday, I really think that people are starting to get out and spend a bit - long may it last

I also think that peoples moods have changed with the All Blacks winning on Sunday night and the hype that this has created.   I do hope that this euphoria continues when the rugby is over.

Keep positive and happy in business

Being World Class

An excerpt from
Secrets of the World Class
by Steve Siebold


The Middle Class competes...the World Class creates.

The Middle Class avoids risk...the World Class manages risk.

The Middle Class loves to be comfortable. The World Class is comfortable being uncomfortable.

The Middle Class hungers for security...The World Class doesn't believe security exists.

The Middle Class sacrifices growth for safety. The World Class sacrifices safety for growth.

The Middle Class focuses on having...The World Class focuses on being.

The Middle Class is frustrated...The World Class is grateful.

The Middle Class has pipe dreams...The World Class has vision.

The Middle Class trades time for money...The World Class trades ideas for money.

The Middle Class is problem oriented...The World Class is solution oriented.

The Middle Class sees itself as a victim. The World Class sees itself as responsible.

The Middle Class thinks it knows enough...The World Class is eager to learn.

The Middle Class chooses fear...The World Class chooses growth.
