Each one of us is born with a wonderful brain. Our minds are limitless in the amount of information that it can hold and the potential for creativity is boundless. However as humans we often restrict ourselves or we believe the hype that other people tell us.
I would like to illustrate why we should think without limits in the same way that our mind has no limits.
How do you view your business? Have you set targets to meet? Did you sit down a while ago and decide how much business you wanted to do this month, quarter or year?
Having a goal is a good thing to do in many ways but might there be a problem with a target? Think for a moment. You have 2 weeks left to go on your quarter target and you look at your figures. Wow you have already reached your target! Guess what happens? You now release your foot off the pedal and slow down. Quite likely the decrease in acceleration carries across into the next quarter and reduces your income.
Now as I wrote above, having a goal can be good but it is well known that it is human nature to relax when a goal has been achieved. Businesses are losing out when staff reach their targets and then ease off. Surely the best thing to do is to set rewards and the greater the result the greater the reward without an upper limit.
If you work for yourself and do not employ anyone set yourself a bonus and special reward for attaining certain levels, again without limits. You will then always be striving to get to the next level and not stopping or slowing once a target has been reached.
This type of unlimited thinking is what drives entrepreneurs forward and does not stop them always moving ahead with new ideas and starting new businesses.
So, open your mind don’t put a limit on what you can do.
