There’s no doubt that some people find these to be very challenging times. While not everyone feels that way, most do.

And there’s one thing that can be done to make these days of job losses, financial insecurity and economic uncertainty feel less frightening.

Get bold.

Yes, instead of shrinking and cowering, the people who will be successful are those who get bold.

Action – How do we get bold?

By taking chances and risks while others spend time fretting.

By picking up the phone and making direct requests for employment or sales.

By deciding to do things that normally frighten you, such as public speaking or pro-active networking.

By stating with pride your achievements, attributes and strengths.

Getting bold is, as Livy said, “the safest thing you can do, because no matter what happens, no one including yourself, will ever be able to say you didn’t do enough.”
