Commonwealth Games To Fix All?
by Guest Author
In case you havent heard ... the Commonwealth Games are being hosted by the Gold Coast in 2018. To me, the best news Ive heard in a long time.
It has been reported that the event will inject about $2 Billion into the Gold Coast economy, but thats not even why I think its good news.
To me its all about attitude.
For a long time now Ive heard people talk about how dead the economy has been. Everyone is struggling, no one is spending money.
As my good friend Ian Scott from Ozz Investments said at our last breakfast at Oxenford: The news tells us that the economy is down, people are losing their jobs, no one is spending money ... as a result everyone stops spending because were experiencing tough times .... a self-fulfilling prophecy.
So finally some good news. As a result everyone is more confident. Things are going to turn around. We all believe it because its on the news. We start spending more money, we are more aggressive in business ... and the economy is kick-started into action again.
Its all in our attitude.
