Income Seldom Exceeds Personal Development
When it comes to business success, it’s all about reputation and branding. It’s a certainty that if Microsoft comes up with a new product or service, Bill Gates and his clan of professionals are going to roll out something fantastic and relevant for nearly all of us. We put our faith in what he has accomplished and produced before, and we know that his reputation is pretty solid with respect to customer satisfaction.
Do you know Joe Smith? He’s just a normal guy with an entrepreneurial dream, but he has not yet risen out of obscurity to build his business or his personal brand. He has been slaving away at minute tasks, wondering why he isn’t getting anywhere, and he is becoming increasingly angry and frustrated at the lack of forward movement in his business. What do you think his problem is?
It’s not lack of motivation--he is working 80 hours a week just to make ends meet.
It’s not lack of support--he has employees working for him, and his family supports his effort to build the business.
Believe it or not, it’s failing to commit to his own personal growth.
Your personal growth will make or break your level of success.
You’ll improve the growth and success of your company by improving your own self-growth. The more you focus on improving yourself and your self-discipline, the more profitable your company will ultimately be. Let’s examine some of the growth habits that will help contribute to the development of your empire:
You must develop self-discipline in your own health and wellness habits. Prioritizing your own healthy habits is essential to the health and wellness of your business. You can be driven in business, but if you are pushing yourself to the point where your health and mental well-being suffer, eventually you’ll be no good for anyone. One of the things that you must be mindful of when safeguarding your health is lowering your overall stress level. Effects of long-term stress can be devastating to your health--it can contribute to the development of mental disorders, chronic inflammation, and even the halted production of new brain cells. Some very simple things you should do to reduce your stress include exercising, eating well, getting enough sleep, and fostering healthy relationships as part of creating a system of support for you and your loved ones. Strive to strike a delicate balance between work and play, and you’ll see your efforts pay off in your business profits.
You must discipline yourself and set personal and business goals. Wanting to go on vacation but failing to plan your destination is a recipe for disaster. Very few people can attain business success without learning the art of diligent goal setting. Without a course to follow, you’ll be unlikely to meet any of your goals. With each goal you set and achieve, your self-esteem will grow, and you’ll become motivated to set the bar higher and higher with respect to your personal and professional life. Goals give you the extra incentive to beat your own expectations and to realize that you CAN do what you set out to do, no matter how ambitious it may seem at first. Get busy, sit down with a good cup of coffee, and start writing down where you want to go in your business and your life; you’ll achieve much!
You must develop discipline in managing your time. Planning your days is the key to success! Starting each day with a solid itinerary is the best way to take steady steps forward in business and in life. While every day will throw you curveballs, having a plan in place will help you to deal with issues as they come up, blasting through setbacks and limitations with ease. Embrace proactive workflow rather than reactive workflow, and you will be crossing things off your “to do” list with ease.
Develop discipline in terms of continuing education. Emphasizing education and learning is essential for success; education can provide you with a new perspective on old ideas, outdated systems, and new ways of doing business. Always search for new ways to develop yourself and your business and be open to opportunities that flow your way as a result of your newfound knowledge and expertise. You never know where your additional training may lead you.
Commit to developing empathy. There is no selling to potential customers if you cannot connect to them. Developing and mastering empathy must be a genuine process, one that requires enormous mental and spiritual effort, and people can see right through attempts that are forced and not authentic. Treating each customer as if it was your most important interaction, letting them know that you are valued and important in your eyes, will ensure that you build connections that will stand the test of time.
