Organically Grow Your Business in 2018
With 2017 being one of the most challenging years ever for so many of my business friends, I believe it is time for many businesses to get back to the source of what makes a business flourish.
I feel strongly that it is to be passionate about your ‘why’ and to organically move forward with your purpose. It’s time for business owners to get back to their core purpose and start enjoying their businesses again with an organic growth principle. It takes courage to work with this principle as there are no stats to support the results, but I am confident to share that when I used this principle to grow my business, it worked and allowed me to scale further than I could have ever imagined on a restrictive business plan.
I believe that most people hold themselves back from reaching their full potential, leaving amazing stones unturned and abundant treasures uncovered. What if I boldly suggested that the answer to successful growth is to lead your own way, and leave space for magical opportunities to shine through that can skyrocket your success. Also, finding the courage to open that door when it knocks and fit in the time to go out and play can be one of the best choices you ever make, but you will only know if you are curious enough to pursue it.
“So, what is this principle?”, I hear you ask.
There are three main ingredients that make it all come together: passion, courage and determination. If you are able to sprinkle a bit of loving intention in the mix, it will rise quicker, but it’s not necessary. The principle of organic growth is where you set the intention of moving forward with your business without limits, always moving forward with the passion of your purpose, being courageous when opportunities present themselves or go out and pursue what you want to achieve, and being determined to overcome challenges when they present themselves.
In my years of experience, I can honestly say that when you change your mindset to think of a challenge as an opportunity to learn, grow and conquer you will have a totally different perspective of it that will reward you tenfold.
I am a great believer in the ‘power of knowing’ and what is often misunderstood is that a ‘knowing’ is not a thing we think, it is, in fact, a thing we feel, something we have to trust without fully knowing why and that requires courage. The essence of ‘knowing’ can often be found in the calling you receive to pursue your business in the first place, you may not fully understand why initially but you feel this urge so strong that it can’t be ignored! It is filled with passion and purpose.
So many people seek external answers to success when in fact you already have the answers to our own success story carved within, you just haven’t discovered it yet. That could be for a number of reasons; maybe you don’t listen when it calls, maybe it’s not the perfect time yet. When you believe with all of your heart, that when the time is right, the answer will come, that is how authentic success is harvested.
When time and circumstance align, magic happens.
2018 has a completely different energy surrounding it for my business and many other businesses that choose it to be different. I know that I pushed past personal boundaries in 2017, at times hushing my trustworthy ‘knowing’ and not being my usual heart-centred giving self that comes so naturally to me. My word for this year is ‘knowing’, and I am already reaping the rewards of my intentions.
Did you have a tough year in business in 2017 and feel the need to approach 2018 differently? I would love to hear about it in the comments below.
