The more I try and grow my business, the more I realize that to do so involves work on myself, constant self-development. The more I work on myself, the more successful my business will be. Part of the reason I want to build a soap EMPIRE? I know that to run a business of the size I dream about requires me to constantly strive to be better and to honestly look at all the ways I can improve and be stronger, tougher, nicer, smarter, kinder.

A blog post by Seth Godin has got me loving him even more than I did before. Regular readers will remember my previous mentions of him in posts (for example here and here and here and here...I like him, huh?!) His post today is titled "Make Big Plans", and it is completely in keeping with my current focus. The line that really sticks with me from his short but great post is "Is there any doubt that making big plans increases the chances that something great will happen?" In other words, what's the point of not making them, other than fear?

I have no need to think small things and no wish to dream small dreams. I plan on doing big things for my small business this week! And you? What are you going to do to help yourself dream big and expand your vision of what you are able to accomplish? I want to hear all about it!
