Webster’s has the following definitions for the word strong:
- Having or marked by great physical power
- Having moral or intellectual power
- Having great resources, such as talent
- Striking or superior of its kind
- Effective or efficient in a specified direction
- Not mild or weak
- Moving with rapidity or force
- Solid, not easily injured
- Not easily subdued
- Not easily upset
Always strive to grow a strong business. These 10 definitions from Webster’s dictionary, in my opinion, set the bar for what a sustainable and profitable business should be like.
Take these 10 items and rewrite them into your own words; describe how each of them pertains, or should pertain, to your business.
- How you present your business determines if others see it as a powerful business
- Values build the foundation for moral power
- Resources are the knowledge and enthusiasm that you bring to the business
- Be the best in your field
- Be focused on your goals
- Have confidence in yourself and display that to others
- Change is the only constant in a business, be aware of its coming and be ready to adapt
- Don’t let others steer you from your set course
- Don’t let what others are doing get you down
- Keep a positive attitude. Mistakes are stepping stones to success
This is how I interpreted these 10 items for myself. Strategic Duck is strong because I live by their message; it is posted above my desk.
Develop your own strong business points and live by them.
Sometimes a simple definition can result in an important message. Always keep things simple.
