The Power of Growth
“Potential is one of the most wonderful words in any language. It looks forward with optimism. It is filled with hope. It promises success, it implies fulfillment. It hints at greatness. Potential is a word based on possibilities. Think about your potential as a human being and get excited!!! Not reaching your potential is like dying with the music still inside of you” John Maxwell
The main thing I have figured out about growth is that when you are growing you will feel good, you will be happier, more excited and more enthusiastic and when you are all those things you will attract more people that want to do business with you. Growth does not just happen though; you have to be intentional about it.
In order to grow, you have to have some goals with regard to personal growth. You have to have a personal growth plan that includes reading, thinking, reflection about your life, great books that will plant positive seeds in your head, affirmations, visualization, learning CDs in your car, seminars, mastermind groups, coaches, all of these things should be included in your plan. The more you focus on your personal growth the more valuable you will become and the more money you will make.
Ask yourself: What areas of my life do I need to grow in? Where could I really grow and become better? What are areas of my life am I strong in and what if focused on could I really make strides and become the best in the world at? John says, “To discover your purpose, you need to grow in self-awareness. To become a better human being, you need to grow in character. To advance in your career, you need to grow in skills. To be a better spouse or parent, you need to grow in relationships. To reach your financial goals you need to grow in your knowledge about how money works. To enrich your soul you need to grow in your spirituality.”
Do not necessarily focus on your weaknesses, although you should focus some there, but focus on your strengths and look to improve yourself in those areas and you will find your greatness!
You can chose to not make things happen or to make things happen. You can chose to wake up earlier, stay up a little Later, you can choose to be great or you can choose to be mediocre it’s your choice nobody else can do it for you only you can do it for yourself! And I will guarantee that if you choose to grow and get better and become the person that you have the potential to become that you will see amazing rewards you’ll live a full life full of joy on happiness wealth and health!
As a last thought, there are many areas you can choose to have growth and maybe all areas-
Belief in your self
Do not become overwhelmed though, pick an area and focus on it till you feel like you are more effective in that area.
We will not improve simply by living; we will grow by becoming intentional about it.
As a massive music fan I love this quote from Bruce Springsteen, “A time comes when you need to stop waiting for the man you want to become and start being the man you want to be.”
There are no limits to what you can do with your life if you focus and drive yourself to become the absolute best that you can become. If you focus on growth, and just do a little bit more every single day to become the best person that you can become. So I am challenging you all today to start becoming the person that I know you can be. I believe in you all greatly!!!
