Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Ensure that your business and life is always growing and evolving so as to be sure you never become stagnant and bored. Here are my top 5 ways to grow a business rapidly .
Community. You don’t have all the answers and chances are you never will. What you can have though is a community of like-minded masters around you who are striving for excellence in the same way you are. Leverage off your community, ask for help and stop trying to be a hero. Your business will do much better if you have other creative minds working with you on the strategies.
Add value. Business is the exchange of value. Simple as that. Right now I have money in my bank and if you can convince me that what you have to offer me will add value to my life, I will be prepared to take that money out of my bank and hand it over to you. If you’re not getting the results that you want for your business, ask yourself, does what I have to offer add enormous value to my customers life? If the answer is no, work out how you can add more value to ‘wow’ your customers and keep the customers coming back. If the answer is yes, and you’re still not getting results you want, you may need to look at how you can better communicate the value you have to offer to you customer, and ensure that you are offering it to the right ‘target market’ that needs it most.
Get a coach. A coach's job is to have or find the answers. If they are good at what they do they would have walked the path before you and have first-hand experience of what it’s like in the trenches and therefore have a guide to offer you of what works and what doesn’t. Having a business coach can save you a heck of a lot of time and empower you to get straight to the hustle of getting the job done. Coaches can keep you accountable to ensure you keep moving forward, give you quick answers that would have taken you hours/days to find, and help you to weed out the shit that often presents as distractions and shortcuts. In short, a great coach won’t let you get away with being mediocre and will push you mastery.
Take massive action. Too many people are full of dreams and goals but do nothing with them. Reality is there is an abundance of business ideas out there. What is lacking though, is entrepreneurs who are prepared to do the work. Yes, you can have the life of your dreams but don’t think for a minute that it’s coming your way without hard work. When you get clear on what you want for your life and business, make a plan to get there and take massive action to bring it to life, despite whatever might get in the way. If you want it, you can and will do it.
Train your brain. You have the power in your brain right now to use your very own thoughts to create the reality you desire. It is scientifically proven that what you focus on expands. If you want rapid growth, more money, longer holidays, less work, you can have it! Start focusing on what you do want, visualize it in your mind. See, feel and believe that you can have whatever you put your mind too and harness the power of the conscious mind to transform your current reality into the life of your dreams.
