Discipline. Productivity. Creativity. Outperforming the competition. Producing winning results.
These are the qualities of every great business – and also every great athlete. For your business to thrive and experience massive success, you need to approach it like a high-performance athlete. The secret to business growth is using the same strategies the best athletes use to improve their skills and beat the competition.
Any great athlete knows if they want to be a champion, it’s not enough to do what they’ve always done. They have to look at what they’re doing and take it to the next level. In business, if you want to grow your business, you have to take your existing core processes and execute them more efficiently. Examine what’s working and how it could bring you more profits and more success.
Here are the four keys to growing your business.
Champion athletes have clarity – they attack their goals and commit to the game. They study the competition and develops a plan that leverages their own expertise. A champion’s mindset is one driven by a purpose, one that inspires others as well as themselves.
In order to grow your business, you need to live in this mindset. Do you know what value you bring to your customers that your competition can’t? Are you focusing on your strengths? How clear and focused are you on your ultimate goals? When you are able to answer these questions with absolute clarity and certainty, you will have developed the mindset of a champion – the key to business growth.
Athletes are committed to winning. If you want to win, you have to anticipate the biggest challenges and create a plan to tackle them.
Optimization is the most overlooked area for business growth. When you mobilize your team to focus on the biggest areas of improvement and create and implement a clear plan, the results will be outstanding. These opportunities can be found in every area: lead generation, sales and prospecting, sales conversion, offer changes, upsells, etc. Understand and document what your current process is, what the results are for each area, and which areas need to be shifted.
Understanding what you did and why it worked or didn’t work will help you prepare for your next attempt. Learn from your experience and results. Don’t just evaluate your successes, examine your failures as well.
When you fail, how can you keep moving forward? When you succeed, what factors contributed to your success? What key decisions were made and how did they affect the outcome? How will you maintain your strengths and build on your weaknesses?
There’s a reason the best athletes migrate towards the best teams. High-performance organizations foster successful innovators. They create a culture where the best can thrive. Constant innovation, efficient business processes, powerful performance systems and team competency must work in harmony for any company or organization to be successful.
How is your business evolving? How are you fostering space for innovation? Business growth depends on innovation. If you want to grow your business, examine your company culture at every level. Is it flexible? Does everything work in harmony? If the answer is no, what needs to change?
