Turn Setbacks Into Greenbacks

I've known Willie Jolley for years and it's amazing to me how he is always able to see opportunity in any circumstance.  Top companies use Willie time and time again to help their organization foster an attitude of excellence. 

His latest book, Turn Setbacks Into Greenbacks, helps people take the challenges, hardships, and disappointments they've experienced in the past couple of years and position themselves to come back greater and stronger.

Here are 4 great tips he shares from the book:

Focusing Your Vision:
Where you focus your energy determines where you will go. Focus your vision on what you want, despite the setback, and use the setback for what it really is: a transitional period.

Making a Decision:
Both success and failure are decisions. The truth, is successful people choose to be successful. Once your vision is in place, you need to decide you're going to win despite the setback!

Taking Action:
A decision without action is simply an illusion. By taking action on a decision, you're also taking responsibility for the setback. Remember, you might not be responsible for getting knocked down, but you are responsible for getting back up. Only those who act achieve their goals.

Keeping the Desire:
Desire is the degree of energy you're willing to exert in order to reach your goal. Decide how badly you want to achieve the goal and then keep going after it until you achieve it.
