Stretch Your Business Muscles
"Growth begins when we begin to accept our own weakness".
As an active person, I enjoy bike-riding and power walking. Unfortunately, those activities do nothing for my upper body, so I began weight training with former client Beverley Ikier, owner of The Ikier Wellness Center. Beverley’s background as a neurological nurse, massage therapist and personal trainer assure me that I am in good hands.
During my first session, I found some of the exercises painful. Beverley discovered that I have tendonitis, a muscle strain and limited range of motion – all roadblocks to developing healthy muscles. Though I entered the first session feeling good, I left feeling decrepit. In addition, while using three pound weights Beverley reminded me one of her clients, who happens to be my 82 year old mother, uses ten pound weights. Now I have to stretch for twenty minutes before I even pick up the weights. Obviously, I have a lot of work to do to get my upper body in shape.
Business owners also tend to develop some muscles more than others. Like most people, you probably enjoy and excel in the core parts of your business. Those muscles are in good shape, but do you avoid other areas because you’re less skilled or less thrilled with them? You have to work those, too.
Nobody is proficient at everything. To continually grow your business, you need to stretch and work your unused muscles. Like me with my weights, you may find some barriers in the way. You may have a fear of failure. Perhaps you worry that your employees and customers will learn of your weakness. Maybe you just really have an aversion to sales and marketing, finance or some other integral part of running a successful business.
Don’t despair. Here are some ways you can stretch your business muscles.
Yes, you can be a business Adonis. Reach for the sky ten times and repeat – doctor’s orders.
