One special characteristic about sharks is that they have to keep swimming forward or else they die. If you think about it, all life is like that. Either you’re growing or you’re dying. There’s no middle ground.
Either you’re nurturing your relationship with your spouse, or that relationship is withering and dying. It can’t stay in neutral.
The same is true with a tree, with a dog, with a human being.
As an entrepreneur, as a professional in your field, and as a human being, are you constantly growing and learning? Or are you stagnating and dying? The choice is yours.
If you’re not growing, you’re dying. Grow or die.
Fallacy to think we can get to the point where we can coast in our sales or in our business. “I’ve spent enough time on building my business.” You can’t violate the laws of nature.
