If there is anyone who knows their business the most it’s the business owners themselves. They know it like the back of their hand and rightly so. This is the reason why business owners are so driven so they can meet the needs of their business and improve its profitability.
As a business owner I understand where they are coming from and I agree with them on this one but sometimes this drive makes us overlook our own personal needs. We are so focused on growing our businesses that we tend to neglect growing ourselves and this is what I want to talk to you about today.
I want to emphasise a fundamental truth that more often than not gets ignored by most business owners. For you to grow your business you must first grow yourself. I believe it is only vital that we talk about growing yourself to ultimately achieve business growth.
Today I want to highlight three ways to grow yourself.
Number 1, is you need to be honest with yourself about where you are at. What are you feeding your mind with? If there are voices in your head that are saying you can’t do this then acknowledge it. Admit to yourself, “I am in a bad headspace but I can change this.” Sure the voices in your head can have the power to tune out your motivation but you always have a choice. You can choose to listen and be subdued by those negative voices or you can rise above and prove that you can be better.
Number 2 is get clear about where you want to be. What do you want exactly and be specific about it. Do you want to earn a million dollars or do you want to reach a million people? You have to be clear about where you want to end up. Sure it can change along the way because businesses are always evolving and what you may have planned for this year may not be suitable for your business needs’ etc. but regardless, it is important that you have direction. You have to be able to say “this is where I am now and this is where I want to be”, because if this is not clear then you cannot grow yourself and you cannot move forward in your journey.
And number 3, get help around this. You can’t grow by yourself. If growth is really what you’re after then you need to acknowledge the fact that you need help. You can get help through a number of ways such as listening to a mentor’s podcasts, watching and subscribing to their videos on YouTube or you can get coached or purchase online programs and products about business and so on.
I want to wrap this up by saying that personal growth is a continuous journey. You have to strive to learn something everyday to improve yourself and your craft.
These are the three things that I wanted to share with you about how to grow yourself.
