How to Thrive in Today’s Ag Economy: A Few More Solutions to Consider

If you’ve been following along with us for the past few weeks, we’ve been discussing how to remain profitable in today’s ag economy. We’ve been considering everything from cover crops to plant protection to application practices to seed selection, but there are so many other opportunities to consider.

Such as attitude.

Attitude can make or break any farming operation, whether organic, biological, or conventional. Our lives are not determined by what happens to us, but how we react to what happens.

A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events, and outcomes. It's a catalyst...a spark that creates extraordinary results.

During our upcoming seminar, our Indiana-based sales agronomist Ray Roettger, will be sharing his life experiences as he correlates positive attitude to profitable farming operations.

In agriculture, things rarely go how they’re supposed to and that’s okay. A wise man once told me these are battle wounds of life and the more you get, the stronger you are. Meaning each of us carry our own unique battle wounds that can either destroy us or mold us into who we’re destined to be.

No matter how hard you work to improve your skills to reach your goals, your life won’t be lived to its fullest until it’s well-sprinkled with terrific people.

As Lillian Glass once said, “Terrific people are genuinely concerned about you and show it. They listen to your ideas, involve you in their lives, and praise you to others. You feel excited, energized, and motivated when you’re with them. Terrific people are also honest and bring out the best in you. If you are headed down the wrong road, they will give you their view without ridicule.”

It’s these people that may have the biggest battle wounds of anyone, but yet they continue on because sometimes that’s the only thing one can do. These are the people who help you reach your goals, introduce you to valuable resources, expose you to new experiences, and broaden your perspective. They are indispensable sources of affection, comfort, and joy. They are warm, generous, and positive.

THESE are the people we enjoy working with. THIS is the reason we do what we do.

So we sincerely hope you will consider coming to our seminar “How to Thrive in Today’s Ag Economy – 10 Practical, Profitable Solutions” Thursday, January 29  8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. at the Chateau Hotel & Conference Center in Bloomington, Illinois, because hey, two minds are better than one, right?
