When we stay in the same patterns, our ideas get stifled and our relationships get complacent. This leaves us frustrated. Here’s an example of why growing is so important.
Blockbuster was a growing retail store that rented movie DVDs in the 1990s. Blockbuster grew rapidly and became anchor stores for every major retail center, grossing over a billion dollars in revenue each year. The problem is Blockbuster didn’t adapt to the changing needs of their customers and they failed to adopt new technology platforms. Soon Netflix, a simpler, easier, more convenient model to rent movies started eating their profits. Blockbuster even turned down the opportunity to purchase Netflix. Over the next few years, Blockbuster’s sales further declined and they went out of business.
What can you learn from this?
To grow, we must adapt and adopt a new way of thinking and doing. Life changes in the blink of an eye. If we stay stagnant, others will beat us to the punch or our relationships will start to deteriorate.
What old ways no longer serve you, your community, or loved ones?
What new approaches are you ready to adopt?
Growth is not optional. It’s the key to our success.
Wishing you an abundant, joyful and prosperous day!
