Is your support fickle?

Posted on

So, I watched the Canucks play again last night (GAME 4) and man did they have an off day…. again!

Hey, we all have these days and it’s so sad to hear how people abandon the ship when things are not going well and are there to receive huge rewards when it is going great! I find that sometimes this is the same with Business Owners… our greatest support comes from those that love and support us, yet, when things do not go all that well are they still your RAVING FANS and PILLARS of SUPPORT, or do they abandon you and start the blame game?

Rather than jumping behind you and giving you encouragement to continue and forget about the last incident and move forward to achieving the success you want?

I have heard some really sad stories from people that SAID they were avid Canuck fans and now their support is wavering and they are full of CRAP and making excuses. Hey, we all have bad days and our game is not top notch, yet we cannot be beaten up for it… we do enough of that ourselves. We need those raving fans behind us no matter what we go through.

Who are your raving fans who never whimper when you make mistakes or have an off day?

All I can say is that I am an avid fan of the Canucks and will support them all the way to the end… until they hold that Stanley Cup high.

If we focus on the negative and continually talk about it… what we focus on shows up… even with the Canucks!

Focus on the positive and the result you want and never lose your focus. If your support whimpers… find new supporters who love who you are and that are there every step of the way with you!!!

Go Canucks Go!!!

Go Business Owners Go!!!
