Now, this doesn’t mean that the majority of us are insane, nor does it mean that the activities we are doing are ineffective, irrelevant or unproductive. In fact they are probably the opposite; effective, relevant and productive. So what‘s the problem?
The problem is that they won’t encourage and may in fact discourage growth in our business, in us personally and in our professional life. These daily, weekly or monthly habits and routines keep us from exploring and benefiting from the development of our potential.
Potential is an unrealized capability or capacity. That means that each of us has skills or traits that are just waiting to be developed and in business that each of our businesses has room for growth. The key to growth in both areas is us. The potential exists, so what is holding us back? The status quo and the absence of a strong motivational event are the top two culprits.
My challenge to you is to examine your business and yourself and ask the hard questions. Am I in a rut? Is my business where I want it to be? Am I the best I can be? Are there areas in my business I can improve? Am I using all the tools available to me through AMSOIL? Am I focused too heavily on one of two customer types? Don’t wait for a strong motivational event to catch you unprepared and force you into immediate unplanned action. These should be done in a thoughtful and planned out process.
Striking out in a new course, learning new ideas, connecting with new people, learning about new markets, developing a new skill or talent will allow your potential to be exposed and in turn grow both you and your business to ever higher levels of success. I wish you the best of success as you engage in new activities.
