Careers PDX


I’ve been chatting with my career consulting clients who are going through a tough time during this recession.  I invite them to take a deep breath and say the following sentence outloud:  Survival is the new definition of success!

I believe these words. 

Whether you’re a corporate person who’s been laid off or an entrepreneur barely holding onto your business during these tough times, this one little sentence can make a world of difference each and every day.  Appreciate every day’s small successes.  The small successses add up over time. 

Once the recovery occurs (and it WILL happen), you will be able to look back with pride that you SURVIVED the worst recession since the Great Depression.  That alone is success.  Be proud.  You’re getting there.  One step and day at a time.

Again, say it outload:  SURVIVAL IS THE NEW DEFINITION OF SUCCESS!

Go Get ‘Em,

Brian
