From episode: TGMS Ep: 127 Reasons Why A Business Owner Is Not Successful
are a few things that we must do to have a growth mindset. And number one is set aside time to work on growth. If you're going to have a growth mindset, set aside some time for growth. So you've got to identify new opportunities. You've got to identify new thoughts and how to implement them and then how to thrive once you implement them. So you've got to set aside some time for growth. What does that look like? It looks different for every one of us. I'm a morning person, so if I need to set aside some time, I'm probably going to be in my office about five a .m. because I know that things don't start happening around here till between seven and seven thirty ish. And I've got a couple hours of my time. So that's me. But yours could be in the middle of the day. You could take off somewhere and go park and stare at a lake. You could go to a restaurant and just drink coffee and and write think. And you could do it at night when the kids are in bed. And, you know, you could just start it. It's different for everyone. So don't get stuck on. I don't have time for that. Well, we all have the same amount of time in a day. What we do with it is extremely important and how you manage it is extremely important. So set aside some time to work on your growth. Number two is stay up to date on your industry trends and developments. You've got to know what's going on in your industry. You've got to know what's happening. Are are the efficiencies changing? Are the is the refrigerant changing again for no reason? It are, you know, what's going on in your industry. But you've got to stay up to date on that. Number three, you've got to think about winning. So that's why I talk about, you know, thinking wrong, thinking right. You've got to think about winning, not just how to compete, but how to win. Because it's not just about competition. It's not telling a customer that, well, we have some, you know, we're part of some good competition out there. I would never consider saying that at all. Or I don't even say we don't say rather, we have competitive pricing because we don't. Our pricing's typically higher than most. And the only reason other companies won't increase their prices is because they don't know how. And I'm not saying they don't know how to raise their price. I'm saying they don't know how to explain an increased price. They don't know how to show value. We do.
