It’s going to be a good year.
Today is the first workday of the new year and most of the stories I saw in the newspaper this morning point to improvements in the economy; job growth, more banks are lending money and more companies are ordering products.
Your specific situation might not be great, but the economy as a whole seems to be turning around.
Why is that important?
Because, if overall confidence about the economy goes up there’s a better chance that your specific situation will improve in a variety of ways. If you feel more confident you look and act more confident and potential employers pick up on that. Wouldn’t you rather hire a confident person than one who isn’t?
How do you feel about the coming year?
Look around, the signs are pointing up.
