3. Never Stop Improving
Stagnation can be one of the deadliest things in business. The only true failure in life is the one where you stop being better than what you are now. I learned that the hard way in my relationships and I learned that the hard way in business. When you become content with what you get and what you have, you’ll soon fall behind on trends and your competition. That’s why I’ve made it a guideline to never stop improving. Take all of the things that people have been criticizing about you and make ways to make those criticisms into strengths. Then take all the things that people have been praising about your business and refine them. Make them even better. When you continue to improve your results will improve as well. It’s like learning a musical instrument. You start out just learning the notes, and then you get to play well. Eventually, you’ll get to make your own music.
