Never be afraid to try something new. Remember that a lone amateur built the Ark, and a large group of professionals built the Titanic. There are times when we all feel a bit fearful, wondering where our next paycheck is going to come from. We have all asked ourselves the question, should we jump ship and try something new, with the possibility that we may sink or swim? Warren Buffet recently said; "When people are greedy, be fearful. And, when people are fearful, be greedy." Now, I don't know much about the greedy part, but I do know that Fear can either paralyze us in our tracks, or motivate us to do great things. Things we might never have imagined!
So, we can choose to stare adversity in the face... and smile, or we can run and hide. Which will you choose? Recessions take awhile to get over. And, our economy will probably suffer for many years to come. But think about this... many companies prospered in the Great Depression. Proctor & Gamble for example. They didn't stop making and marketing products, they just started doing it differently.
Think about your next move, and consider kicking up your heels and changing your step. You may be surprised to find that the Universe will plow ahead regardless of our mis-steps and failures. So, be brave! Try something new! Make a bold statement! And remember, there were many survivors on both of these vessels!
