There is much talk today about a “recession” and all that goes along with it. Just listen to the radio and watch TV, read the newspaper, and look on the internet.
But then, I do not really pay that much attention to any of those, as i know where I stand with this so called “recession.”
How about you?
Where do you stand?
How do you feel about it?
What are your plans for it?

If you think about it, there are certain people in the world that will thrive in the midst of all this economic “woe is me the sky is falling” talk. How about you? Are you buying into this lockstep economic fear talk?
You may think that I am crazy, and am not living in “reality.”
But I am. Very much so.
And I am hoping that you will join me after reading this. As you will see, there are options in the world that you may not realize.
I was on the computer this morning, and ran across a screaming new headline, ‘Recession deepens and the world economy is impacted.” Ok. tell me something POSITIVE that will move my life forward, and move my business upward. But alas, as the story went on, the world is coming to a financial crisis that I believe much of it is being manufactured and enlarged by the media.
Powerful, Super Negative news sell newspapers and broadcast airtime 100 to 1. You read that right. 100 to 1. Ultimately, the media is in BUSINESS to make a profit. And with the lack of profit today with newspapers and TV and radio, there seems to be a major move to SUPER NEGATIVE NEWS so that they can sell more papers and air time to hopefully create more profits.
You may think I am crazy?
Nope- that is the Truth.
So being that as it is, here is my question:
Are you falling for all this “the sky is falling” news? Yes, i known there is a challenge with the economy. I have not stuck my head in the sand. But i know something that may change your thinking about this whole thing – especially in Social Media.
In marketing, it is called “Strategic Positioning.”
Let me explain.
There are only 2 types of people that are in the world concerning this so called ‘recession:”
1) Those who decide to PARTICIPATE in this “recession.”
2) Those who decide NOT TO PARTICIPATE in this “recession.”
Yes, we all have that choice or decision. But the real secret lies within the word “participate.”
One of the Greek root word definitions for “participate” means “to Position.” This means that you must choose a position – to either Join something- or NOT Join something. To Embrace something-or NOT Embrace something. To Connect to something- or NOT to Connect to something. ALL those words- “join,” “embrace,”and “connect,” are part of the root word “participate.” All require personal CHOICE or DECISION.
YOU can refuse to participate in this “recession,” and move forward in social media, with a focus that will take your business and life to new heights.
How does that work?
Here is an ancient truism; “What your mind focuses on intensely, has a tendency to move your life towards.” No, this is not some new age psycho-babble. This is an ancient Success Rule- “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he…” Your mind has a tendency to move your life towards people, circumstances, and things that will help create that focus in your life. We do not know how it works, only God does. But it works.
When you make a decision, it “shifts” something on the inside. People FEEL that shift and respond to it. They FEEL a direction that is more appealing to them than what they have been travelling many times.
Yes, there are the “victims” of the world and like complaining and moaning, but you do NOT have to be a victim. You are not CALLED to be. You are called in Social Media to be on the cutting edge of thinking, and a higher level of belief. So that is where you need to step up to if you have not.
Are you aware there were more Millionaires created during the Great Depression than any other 7 year period in our nations’ history? READ THAT AGAIN.
And this recession will create, birth, spawn a LOT of new wealth – but only to those that SEE IT, RESPOND TO IT, and “GET IT.” It all depends on what you are focused on.
So…with that in mind, if you FOCUS ON this so called recession, your mind somehow will move you towards that focus to create that situation in your life.
if you REFUSE to participate in the recession , your mind will move your life towards something totally different, and lead you to that reality in your life.
How about YOU? Are you going to participate in this recession? You do NOT have to. Social Media I believe will develop a different response to this misery, a higher calling above the fray, and a more powerful approach to taking CONTROL of your life, and not BEING CONTROLLED but the media and other people’s opinions.
What are your plans for this recession in this social media world? I am NOT going to participate in this recession. My goal is to help others create New Wealth during this time and it will be accelerated in the Social Media Zone.
