    Most people might say it is easier said than done! Last night my wife and I went to see Kung Foo Panda as I tend to avoid violent, negative films, and I choose happy endings that leave me feeling hopeful and light. This movie is right in that genre. One of the best lines was when the veritable Kung Foo spiritual master turtle looks at his protégé and says “there is no bad news and no good news. There is just news." How true. How we respond or react is our free choice and it is also the place we have empowerment. Our real demons are our own judgments. Most of us need some lifting here.

     

    The daily news goes right to our core survival fears; not being able to eat, the cost of gas keeps going up and on and on. The news is given as facts but portrayed as "bad news." This is important information, however how we each deal with the news in our small business, is where our power lies. Some people plug themselves into the socket of bad news and feel constricted, negative and make decisions from that place. It can take a lot of internal effort and energy to make a different choice against the tide. I am not talking about putting your head in the sand and pretending there are no world issues. I am talking about listening to the turtle and realize the choices you have.
