Mental Toughness

The Right Mindset for an Exceptional Second Half of 2009
By John Odegard, President, Seattle Funding Group

Mental toughness was never an issue in a rising market where everything works and sloppy business practices are easily forgiven. So many in our industry have never seen a down market or believed one was possible. Today they find themselves fearful, shocked and overwhelmed. I have been at this business for 25 years. Some of my friends and business partners have been at it successfully for over 50 years. The right mindset is paramount. With the right mindset and mental toughness, you can come through 2009 and beyond in good shape…maybe even great shape.
