Seven Secrets for Going Up in Down Times

TURN SETBACKS INTO GREENBACKS (Wiley; February 2010; $21.95) by international best-selling author, speaker and “Comeback Guru” Willie Jolley, couldn’t come at a better time. We may have gone through some troubling times, and the worst may not be over, but Jolley’s message in this book will motivate, inspire, and instruct all of us to come out on the other side greater than we began. 

The Wall Street Journal says that the number one concern on people's mind today is how to they can “come back” from this tough economic situation.  In their January 2010 Issue, Success Magazine dubbed Willie Jolley as “The King of Comebacks” partly because of his fame as the speaker who helped Ford Motors to avert bankruptcy and bail-outs. He was the speaker Ford hired when they went through their national re-organization in 2006, where they needed to get 25,000 people to take the buyout.  Jolley went on a national tour and spoke to Ford workers, not about taking the buyout, but rather about taking full advantage of the “American dream” and the possibilities that it afforded them.  

After hearing Jolley’s inspiration message over 38,000 people took the buyout. Jolley went on to do the internal television messages for the remaining Ford workers on the importance of an attitude of excellence. In this new book Jolley shares with readers that viewing setbacks as a chance for future growth, every challenge can have a positive outcome, and every setback can be seen as nothing but a setup for a comeback. TURN SETBACKS INTO GREENBACKS is designed to help readers grow possibilities and profits, and reach greater levels of business success. 

In Jolley’s signature style, this book exudes enthusiasm and offers time-tested suggestions, strategies, and solutions not only to survive, but thrive, and take action to achieve professional growth. Jolley's simple step plan is easy to follow, easy to implement, and will teach readers the importance of: 

  • Focusing their Vision: Where you focus your energy determines where you will go. Focus your vision on what you want, despite the setback, and use the setback for what it really is: a transition period.
  • Making a Decision: Both success and failure are decisions. The truth is successful businesspeople choose to be successful. Once your vision is in place, you need to decide you're going to win despite the setback.
  • Taking Action: A decision without action is simply an illusion. By taking action on a decision, you're also taking responsibility for the setback. Remember, you might not be responsible for getting knocked down, but you are responsible for getting back up. Only those who act achieve their goals.
  • Keeping the Desire: Desire is the degree of energy you're willing to exert in order to reach your goal. Decide how badly you want to achieve the goal and then keep going after it until you achieve it.
