Don’t get stuck in yesterday. Your past achievements are just that, the past. It is only natural, that when we find something that works, we want to keep doing it forever. The only problem is, some solutions were for a specific period of time and not meant to be used forever.
Life is full of change and in order to keep pace, we must sometimes change as well. Successful companies know this to be true, which explains why, every few years, they refresh themselves. The may take a new form of their name, upgrade their builds, revamp their products or change the way they do business. Leaders of successful companies know that to stay relevant, change is a part of the equation.
For example, most, if not all, brick and mortar stores also have an online presence. This is so because today, unlike 15 years ago, more and more people shop online for some of their needs. Almost all sellers except a credit or debit card as payment instead of only cash or checks. Sellers who do not make changes to reflect the new demands, loss customers and risk going out of business.
Like wise, what worked for you, on your journey to achieving your goals in the past may not now. If you want the next promotion, you may need to increase your knowledge, make new affiliations, or change your location. As an entrepreneur, if you want to increase your revenue, you may need to add a new product line, repackage an existing product, or change your marketing, just to name a few. The changes you make should be in line with the ultimate goals you wish to achieve.
If you keep doing the same things, you will get the same results. Not all change is bad, getting stuck in the comfort of yesterday at the detriment of your future, that is bad.
