Although I’m not necessarily on the Romney train and I have made no final decisions on who “my candidate” for president is, most candidates spent time this week looking terrified as Wall Street is taking a hit. Mitt Romney, however, stands out as he speaks confidently with the only sound advice of all the candidates:
“I can tell you from my own personal experience that every time I’ve seen things really get scary, and the markets really collapse, that I put aside that fear for a moment and say “aha! Is this a buying opportunity?” Because, my experience has always been that what goes down comes back up.”
Now, that is what is called a lesson in leadership! Quit scaring the people and be realistic with them- what goes down must come back up. Looking at things from a positive spectrum or “the other end of the telescope” as Jeff Brown would put it, is a great way to lead. Enough with the fear factor guys, take a page from Romney.
