Leaders lead well by leading self first
It has been said that owning a business is a spiritual pursuit, not just a professional one. In other words, you got where you are because of a dream, a vision, an inspired belief that you could do this.
And you are doing it! There are few things more rewarding than planting the seed and growing to fruition what once only existed in your mind and your imagination. Congratulations!
Celebrate your success!
And then discover your next pathway that will lead you to continued growth.
Allow me to ask:
How often do you pause to consider how well you are doing as a business owner?
What are you doing to keep yourself in the discomfort zone, just off-balance enough to keep moving, growing, learning, expanding, and producing at the level that you know is possible, if only...?
What do you believe about your potential?
What are you resolved to do about that?
What self-limiting beliefs have you questioning, wondering, or doubting how far you can go to make your business a more smashing success?
How are you holding your company back?
What is holding you back?
Are you growing? If not, why not?
Growth is a necessary part of owning a business. A mistake many business owners make is working too often in the business, but not often enough on the business.
Now is the time to make the shift from being an operator to an owner, from working in to working on your business.
Your business will never grow unless you grow as a person.
If you want to lead others, you must be willing to lead yourself first.
The biggest chokehold on a business is the psychology and skill-set of the owner. You will never to be able to take your business beyond where you yourself have been wiling to go. When you stop growing, so, too, does your business.
But you can change that.
And if you can change that, you can change your business, making it what you dream it to be.
