Growth is how you achieve your desired potential.
Grow in your relationships, help others achieve their goals and you will reach your potential.
If you want to achieve any type of goal in life, you must focus on growing from where you are right now. If you do what you always have always done, you will continue to get the same results you always have.
You must learn to stretch beyond your comfort zone. You must pay attention to what and who you listen to for your growth. Surround yourself with people who help you grow.
This is a list of 15 Steps you can take to help ensure continued growth.

As you develop yourself and continuously contact new people to build relationships with you will develop yourself into a leader and you will build teams with people who know, like, and trust you. Are you developing warm markets by getting to know prospects or are you constantly pitching your products, services, or business opportunity to others? In today’s market people are looking to buy an experience, not necessarily a specific product. No one wants to be sold. People want to feel like they are making their own choices and if something is being constantly shoved at them, they don’t feel like they have a choice; so, if they aren’t buying from you, they are hiding from you. Just reality.
