Mindset is everything. In this video, Jason Forrest, EO Fort Worth member and Chief Sales Officer for Forrest Performance Group, talks about the benefits of choosing possibility thinking vs. limited thinking. Circumstances can be tough—such as a downward economy or a new competitor—but when we look for the possibilities, we grow.

A few years ago, my family and I rented a cottage in rural France for a month. It happened at a hectic time in our personal and business lives, and I felt that going away for an extended break would give me some much needed perspective.
At the time, I had fallen into the common entrepreneurial trap of no longer being able to see the forest for the trees. I own a promotional products company, and after five years of running the business, I was starting to lose steam. Some time off was what we needed, but not the average “let’s take the family to Disneyland” kind of trip. We wanted to get away and really enjoy life by living in another country, away from the normal tourist attractions and without any formal agenda.
