Iron Sharpens Iron

There is a Proverb that I absolutely love and I applied to my former brick and mortar businesses and employees every day. Now I apply it to my online business.

As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another. ~Proverbs 27:17

As entrepreneurs it not just you building an empire and creating financial freedom for yourself; you help out others during your journey.

You were not given talents and knowledge for your own personal gain. You were given talents to help progress others. To be a foundation for others who are on the same journey of building their empire and pressing towards the mark.

Growth happens because we keep information in consistent movement. Growth should never be a selfish act. Of course you want growth for your own reasons, but your growth stimulates the growth of others. Therefore, whenever you decide to go on a growth journey (I like to call it a mind expansion journey) know that you are helping others too. That is iron sharpening iron.

Every day when wake-up, look in the mirror and ask “What can I do for someone today?” Or “How can I positively change someone’s life today?” Thinking that way will get you in the mind frame of iron sharpening iron.

There is someone that’s just starting out right now that needs your advice and expertise. They need to know the details of how you obtained success. They need to know how you handled failure and fear. As an entrepreneur it is your duty to help. This is iron sharpening iron.
