  10. 10. Our National Economy* As of today the government is shutdown, no sight of approved bill to fund the operations of the US government. House of Representatives and Senate can’t agree on a way forward and will most likely watch a complete US government default during a debt crisis by mid month. What does that mean to you? In the US it will mean that all things “credit” will be negatively affected. With furloughs and low economic activity people will not circulate money within the society in order to generate taxes to fund the government obligations. Therefore, what does it mean to you in the international arena (excluding China) , when the US defaults and it’s credit and good faith has been damaged markets around the globe will be directly impacted because the payments from the US to foreign countries will not be authorized by the Congress thus, a significant drop in the world economy. HUGE RISKS for the USA and not one that should be entertained.
  11. 11. What is the economy like now? How do you see it? Ask yourself these questions… • Let’s talk about local industry (major players) • Who’s hiring? Who’s downsizing, layoffs, being sold, furloughs etc • How is it really? • Now, what should happen? • What would you do different if you had the power? (national, state, local, personal) • What are some successes during tough times?
  12. 12. • Microsoft – Bill Gates – 1975 (DOS) • Apple – Steve Jobs – 2001 (iPod) Most Popular • Burger King – Keith Kramer as “Insta-Burger” (1953 Rebranded BK) • Walt Disney – 1923 (Mickey Mouse explosion 1929) Popular • CNN – Ted Turner – 1980 (24hr News Channel) • FEDEX – Frederick Smith – 1973 Well Known • Google, Paypal, Ebay, Thriving There are many more from the past and from today. This chart is to give you a look at what happens in a tough or down economy. Even at the time of a US govt shutdown dreams are created. Some will say that things are so bad and it is the government’s fault. Some will wait and petition the government to give them some help. Others will see this as an opportunity to be creative and take matters of developing a way to support the economy with their ideas and business concepts. The entrepreneur will rise and continue to build their dream no matter what happens in the economy. These visionaries listed had a burning desire to go after their dream with a certainty of purpose to offer their community, their nation and now the world options in their field of business. The questions is as stated, “What are you going to do?” Top Companies Started in Tough Economy Who didn’t wait for permission?

  14. 14. • See it as it is. Not making it bigger or worse that it really is. • Many times we exaggerate about an issue without really looking at options to fix it • See it better than it is. Take the position of seeing it with options for a solution. • Think what would make it better instead of feeling hopeless and complaining. • Now, do something about it. Don’t let it just be, you see it now take action to bring a desired outcome in your life, your business, your future! Decide to Change the Outcome The 3 Step Sequence
  15. 15. Career Transitions When something happens that affects your career path • Examples of career transition • Graduate • Promotion • Transfer • Layoff/Furlough • Termination • Downsize • Employed • Unemployed • Company goes out of business • Ownership / Entrepreneurship • US Government Shutdown How do we cope, how to recover?
  16. 16. • The brain is an organ that hosts what we call the mind. Many mistake the “brain” for the “mind.” • The mind is an information processing device consisting of 2 parts; the conscious and subconscious. The conscious mind collects and stores data. The subconscious mind produce behavior in response to internal/external inputs. It uses adaptive mechanisms and neural mechanisms of the brain specialized for problem solving. • The brain, consisting of many specialized mechanisms that continue to help the mind identify the proximate manifestations of these adaptations. In neuropsychology this is called evolutionary functions. Simply Put: You CAN have Superior Knowledge and getting Inferior Results. The Brain & Mind Paradigm Turning function into form So change your words, think powerful thoughts! SHIFT!
