What you nurture is what will grow…..So much truth right there!
I’m writing from the heart right now after watching my daughter win her first 2 sporting medals, 1 first prize for competing in her very first gymnastics competition something she truly loves and the other from a sporting event with her school.
It’s been so lovely to watch her grow from an anxious child into a confident and caring young girl, I’ve no idea where the anxiety came from when she was younger as my other two children have always been super confident from the minute they were born, happy to talk to anyone and pretty much give anything a go!
For her there was a time when she wouldn’t even go to a birthday party at one stage I remember receiving party invites and immediately RSVP’ing no and putting the invite straight into the bin.
Thank goodness that time has now passed, we’ve always encouraged her to try new things and tried our best to be patient rather than push too much when things weren’t going the right way, instead we would try another approach.
It’s been an absolute delight with the gymnastics and although she hasn’t been doing it long I believe she has truly found something she absolutely loves. In recent months I think I seen more of her legs than I have her face, high kicks, cartwheels and every bit of furniture has been used as equipment to balance off, spin onto and whatever else she can do…. extremely annoying at times!!!! But when you see someone completely beaming from doing what they love you’ve got to leave them be and watch them grow, hearing her repeat my words to her “it’s good to be nervous” and then add “but I’m not scared anymore” absolutely made my day!
I know I’m talking about family life here but it’s the same with business you have to spend time nurturing your business, making changes, giving it the attention it needs in order for it to grow.
- Are you doing what you absolutely love?
- Are you investing enough time in learning more to make your business grow?
- Are you spending enough time talking to your audience? being visible?
- Are you doing enough of the above for the success you’re striving for?
It can be so simple when you are doing what you LOVE, spend time nurturing your expertise and the foundations of your business.
Nurture it and watch it grow UP!
