“Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never.” – Winston Churchill
You have built what some may say is the dream business. Been around for several years, outstayed the competition and the market. Your company is reputable within the industry. Debts are paid off, profits are good, and the people like you a lot. Now what?
Seek permanence. Permanence is defined as “the state or quality of lasting.”
Human beings can see both the future and the past. With this gift, we have the ability to build and create things that last.
We can learn from previous mistakes and build things that last beyond ourselves.
The call today is to build a business that outlasts you. How would you do that? What would it look like? What are the decisions you would make today to make sure this goal is achieved?
The purpose of your business is for others – for your customers and your team. If you are lucky enough to own a business, it is your duty to help your employees achieve ownership themselves. Ownership entails taking personal responsibility, whether that is for your life, land, home, or business, and making it fruitful for others.
It is the natural law for people to take ownership or said differently responsibility. You have been given a gift. A responsibility. What will you do with that gift?
