Living a life of significance is the foundation to a successful thriving business.
It’s all about deepening your compassion and ability to understand others.
Let’s say that two entrepreneurs start businesses on the same day in the same industry.
One entrepreneur is out to make a good profit and sell their business in 10 to 20 years so they can retire on the beach.
The second entrepreneur has a vision of helping their hometown by bringing back jobs and pride to the community.
They’ve lived in this small town their entire life and know almost everyone.
They’ve seen their neighbors and friends – and even their dad – suffer when first the mill, and then the factory shut down.
They’ve seen the stores on main street close one by one.
They’ve seen the fire go out of people’s eyes as they struggled just to make ends meet.
And they wants to change all that.
Their new business has the potential to completely revitalize the town and give jobs to everyone who wants them.
They can see the stores on main street reopening, the restaurants full of happy customers again, and neighbors and friends excitedly greeting each other when they meet on the street.
One entrepreneur is building their business for himself.
The other is building their business for the entire community.
Who is going to wake up with a fire in their belly each and every day?
Who is going to gladly, happily work longer hours?
Who is going to do whatever it takes to make their business a success?
Find your cause – whatever it might be – that lights your fire.
Then use that as your rocket fuel to propel your business from hum-drum into explosive growth.
