Growing up everyone has dreams of being wealthy or famous, living in a mansion with a Lambo or Porsche (or both) in the garage. Being able to go out and do whatever you want without the considerations of “how much is that going to cost?”
Why do certain people gain access to such a lifestyle when the majority do not?
“I do not have enough money for that” is the exact consideration that sweeps away and opportunities for expansion.
It is this consideration that stops people growing and expanding. Instead, you remain in the same place or worse, implode and contract
So, what is the solution to this lack of expansion?
The solution is RISK.
This does not mean going to a casino and gambling your life savings away. That would be a non-Calculated Risk.
I am talking about a CALCULATED RISK.
Just like Alexander the Great, you need to dominate sectors of your territory and move outwards.
When Alexander the Great inherited the throne his first move as king was not to attack other kingdoms around him or to seize land. His first move was to reinforce and stabilize his own area and family.
From this stable base he worked ever outwards, first stabilizing his kingdom and then moving to other kingdoms. Even though he conquered by the sword, he created stability wherever he went and therefore could continue to expand.
He is known as Alexander the Great for this reason. He conquered his space by stabilizing first one area and then moving to the next.
His reward. He was named not just the Pharaoh of Egypt but the great King of Persia.
It all started with stabilizing his family. What can we learn from this?
STABILIZATION is the KEY to expansion.
Now, circling back to your company or your own personal life. What is the most unstable area?
I am not talking about the economy or inflation. I am talking about the energy that you use to fuel your company and your life.
For most people this is being poorly utilized. Instead of creating stability, all you have is confusion and uncertainty.
In order to create stability, you have to make sure that your immediate area is being properly controlled and is stable. Most of us do not even have this in place and live pay-check to pay-check. There are ways to improve your immediate area, make this more stable so that your future is more certain. From this future you can start planning and expanding.
