ITG #7 - Growth

By Matt Blake

Today on the show we are talking about GROWTH! If you want to be successful in your business you need to continue to grow. That sounds obvious, doesn't it? Who wouldn't want their business to GROW!? But those who are successful put themselves in a situation to grow in the right direction, at the right rate, and at the right time! Refuse to become complacent in your business, don't accept the status quo; Allow plans to change and be flexible so that you can take advantage of the opportunities for growth that come your way; Grow your business into and experience that your customers will appreciate... be unique in your industry, and in everything you do keep the masterplan in mind: Keep to the long game and don't lose patience. "To Improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often" - Winston Churchill No matter which type of growth you are talking about: Business Growth, Personal Growth, Spiritual, Emotional, or Physical Growth... It is an important part of becoming the best you can be. Growth is change, and it's often frightening because it's different. But, just like other changes, they key is being prepared and having a plan... and growing too fast is just as dangerous as not growing at all! But don't stop that process. Change, adapt, grow, and overcome... be willing to do what it takes to grow your business, and you will be able to dominate your industry. Quotes for Topic: ( Growth ) “Conformity is the jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth." — John F. Kennedy There are no great limits to growth because there are no limits of human intelligence, imagination, and wonder. -- Ronald Reagan ​ “A business that is not growing after all, is dying.” ― Shawn Casemore ​ “I do not think much of a man who is not wiser today than he was yesterday.” Abraham Lincoln ​ “Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow.” Ralph Waldo Emerson "Growth is never by mere chance; it is the result of forces working together." — James Cash Penney, founder, JC Penney Business Tip: 4 Principals to adopt for Growth: 1. Don't be complacent. If you're not moving forward you're moving backwards in the market 2. Be Adaptive - Being rigid makes adjusting to growth and change impossible. 3. Create a Unique Experience - By standing out from the crowd you can keep from being boring in your industry 4. Practice Patience. Planning for the long game is KEY to sustainable growth and success. ---- Book to Read: 7 Habits of Highly Effective People - Covey - Tool to Try: - So many free tools, awesome stuff!
