New Year’s message

Chamber of Commerce vice-president: 2014 has positive signs

By Leon Chretien

2014 has some very positive pointers.

Business expansions and building is happening on numerous fronts.

At the end of the day, we must position ourselves with a positive outlook and take the necessary steps towards success. Then, we need to respond with flexibility in the face of challenges, which will surely come.

The South Cariboo, as with all areas, is going through constant change in the economic landscape.

Adversity for one provides opportunity to another. Build off yesterday’s successes but respond to tomorrow’s opportunity.

Hold fast your vision and goals, while at the same time, make informed decisions to embark into a new direction if needed or presented.

It has been quoted often, “Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you are absolutely right!”

Some look to “luck,” but it has likewise been often said, “Luck is when preparation meets opportunity.”

Be prepared and seize your opportunity

Leon Chretien is the vice-chair of the South Cariboo Chamber of Commerce.
