I remember the day I decided I was going to migrate to other side of the world. Typical twenty something, I was hopeful, courageous, daring and willing to take risks.
I also remember a respected community leader telling me I was wrong to imagine such success. He had contacts who told him it couldn’t be done: I would not be able to migrate to New Zealand.
Boy was he wrong! I became a resident of New Zealand and enjoyed that magical country for twenty-four years.
New businesses and new relationships are untangled and unafraid! When we are untangled and unafraid, we are able to grow by leaps and bounds!
Businesses like relationships often become prudent and cautious with age. Dare I say even timid and afraid to grow too quickly?
Experience teaches how to sustain growth with incremental success. This comes from building on top of what is already known.
But is that enough?
Quantum growth—sudden leaps of success in personal and business life—are a result of opening yourself up to what you don’t know!
There is a saying attributed to Albert Einstein that states, the problems that exist in the world today cannot be solved by the level of thinking that created them.
The problems in your business and relationships will not be solved with the same thinking that created your foundation. Such growth lies in what you haven’t yet learned.
- LG started as a chemical industry company and moved to hygiene products before becoming the electronic appliance giant of today.
- Tiffany’s didn’t start by selling high-quality jewelry: it was a New York stationery store in 1837.
Clearly these businesses dared to take a leap of faith and enjoyed boundless growth as a result.
Are you looking to grow in leaps and bounds? Tap into the generosity of your youth and be willing to learn from its daring outlook!
