Learn how, similar to the six plant growth stages; business follows the same rules of nature.
For the last 17 years, I have had the opportunity to work in the business development landscape for numerous businesses and non-profit organizations worldwide. Since my childhood, I have always been labeled as the “perfect student.” This, followed by my competitive nature, has led me to seek any opportunity to present myself as a high achiever and the best in my field since I began my career.
Like many others experience, this drive deep in my core has fueled me to get to where I am today. However, you must remember that while this fuel may seem inspirational and pure, it may also cause you to burn out before you know it. This greed of wanting to accomplish more, of being in a state of lack, can distract us from what matters in success. Before you know it, both your personal and business life has been adversely compromised.
With this in mind, I would like to draw your attention to simple biological processes that we have all learned at least once or twice throughout our education: The Four Plant Growth Stages. I will be using this natural process to form an analogy of how business development follows the rules of nature.
