Step 7: Grow Personally
I live by the principle that until you grow personally, it is not easy to grow professionally. Simply put, the more you work on yourself and expand your mindset, the quicker and more easily you will grow your business. One of the most common things I say from stage is, “Business is really simple, until you add human beings!” Yes, we make things extremely complicated. So, I encourage you to keep working on yourself and attend personal development workshops to increase your awareness about you. You will realize that the biggest challenge in your business is the way you think. The quicker you shift your thinking the sooner your business will achieve massive levels of success!
Bonus Step: Principles I Live By
I often get asked, “Colin, what is the number one principle that has contributed to your massive success?” It is a very simple answer: I’ve followed and continue to follow all of the above steps and I never give up until I’ve achieved my goals. I do not let anything get in my way.
Hurdles or challenges are opportunities to learn and I always ask the question, “What am I meant to learn from this situation?” I take the learning move on and continue to implement. I am results focused and not excuse poisoned. I am always asking, “How can I?” versus saying “I can’t!”
Most of all I do not overthink everything! My process is to think, make a decision and take action with urgency – there is no grass that grows under my feet!
