“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember you have within you the strength, the patience and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world” – Harriet Tubman.
Many of us have dreams that if we could only achieve, the joy on our lips would be contagious to everyone around us. Just like you, not long ago, I desired to make a difference in the world. I had all reasons listed down to believe in myself as the person that would at one day be responsible for a certain amount of impact being created into our world. My CV personal statement would always have statements like “Setting a new standard for the world of digital communications”, “Living a life that will leave a scientific difference to the planets” and much alike. I would always visualize a story being written in my name.
It’s actually easy to write such things down whilst forgetting that these statements form an expectation for our inner beings to crave for. I realized that the more one decides to elevate their minds to reach their highest level of thinking, the easy it becomes for such a person to achieve continuously. Not that the dreams work like magic, but the mind that gets used to an elevation in thinking never goes back to mediocre experiences. And the same goes for our businesses.
It's easy to sit down and see your business make some money without a solid plan and strategy. This can create a level of comfort simply because one earns money enough to sustain their expectations. However, the reality is that we are always more than capable to achieve what we have perceived. The limits of our minds only act to show us what we have in control and can do. But our nature is built to be creative, and this only means that there is no reason to stay at the same stage for long. Every new day in business should be a day to solidify on the past and start imagining what more we can achieve in our future.
Think of it, why does one keep growing without even thinking about it? Its simply because our psychology has settled with the fact of growth and it doesn’t have to be a reminder anymore. This is to get us to understand that the growth mindset should be built in our company’s culture as much as we can. It doesn’t matter whether we have ongoing problems or hiccups in our journey, because these can never limit growth, just like a person keeps growing even when there are hard situations in the environment.
Lack of growth is only but a mindset, but this has never been our true nature. And since businesses are built by people, the same people can transform the businesses using an understanding of their true nature.
