How To Use The Power of Growth

Yogesh Chabria, World’s Best Motivational Speaker, Bestselling Author and Successful Entrepreneur - The Happionaire Way
There are two types of people in the world -  the first who believe they stopped growing as soon as they touched 18 and the other who believe they have the power to grow every single moment. 

What type of person are you? 

Before you read further, simply pause and think. Close your eyes and reach deep within. Make sure you do this before you read any further.  I am sure you would have got an answer. 

I know very well what type of person you are : you are the type of person who wants to grow and that is why you are reading this and practiced the simple, yet powerful exercise of pausing and thinking. 

You have a deep desire to grow and this is what is the most powerful success tool. What needs to be done is to harness this desire into definite action every single moment. 

Growth isn't simply about making more money, or buying a bigger car or house. Growth is a state of mind and is a state of life. Growth is life and life is growth. Growing love, co-operation and harmony among friends, family and co-workers is growth. Making sure you understand everyone around you is growth. Upgrading your personal knowledge and skills is growth. Investing in your personal mental, physical and spiritual happiness is growth. 

I have studied how very often, a higher pay package, without changing other key areas, ends up reducing happiness levels in people. So while people keep getting promoted, keep making more money - their overall happiness keeps reducing. 

This is because the power of growth isn't being used. Growth in a larger sense is the simple belief that life is incredible, and only when we realize this can we bring in immense change. 

Imagine yourself being paid a large amount of money. Any figure you desire - you have it. But while you are being paid all this money, you have no control over your personal time. So you can be called absolutely any time to your workplace. At any moment, you might need to attend a meeting. At anytime, you might be requested to send in a report or email. You can barely plan your personal time as you are totally clueless on when you might be called. How does it feel? How do you think your productivity at work would be if you always felt this way? 

Now imagine, you are probably not the highest paid person in the industry - but you have complete control over your time. In addition to work, you feel yourself growing in other areas. You are spending time with your friends and family. You are even practicing a sport or hobby you always wanted to. Your meetings and work are clearly scheduled and your time is used efficiently. At work, you believe every moment of your time is being used efficiently. How does this feel? How do you think your productivity would increase at work? Do you think you would harness your power of growth more? 

Today the most revolutionary and path breaking work places who work closely with The Happionaire Way understand that people don't simply want more money. In fact, almost always happiness levels among people can be increased substantially by adopting strategies that have nothing to do with increased pay packages. This is the future of work - to make sure the human mind is empowered in every possible way for maximum growth. 

And believe me these people and organisations end up bringing in a lot more sales, profits and creativity - simply by instilling what is most important and powerful. 

Keep sharing, smiling and growing!

Lots of love,

Yogesh Chabria

I always thought it was money ......that people want....but this article made me realize growth is much more than simple money. This is certainly the future.

Fabulous inputs Yogesh.
Always a pleasure reading the posts from Happionaire and using the "Slight Edge" principle to infuse that thought process into an action plan for "Growth".

Very interesting take on what really is growth Yogesh. I heard you as a speaker at the WEF and it was very motivational and inspirational. Since then I have been following you.

I wanted to ask you, how can someone become a motivational speaker? I too enjoy sharing my ideas and love all that is inspirational and would like to learn more from you.

While Yogesh would be the best person to reply to that Tina he is among the few motivational speakers, thinkers and authors I truly respect.........what I feel is it takes a lot of real world experience and a real desire to help. I have been reading and have benefited from the Happionaire community and Yogesh's views since 2008.

Since then there has been an honest desire to help with various things....from business and investing to now....something more holistic.

As they say takes several years to attain overnight success!
