If you’re green you GROW if you’re ripe you ROT

I want to talk about if you’re green you grow, if you're ripe, you're rot. This is a famous saying by Ray Kroc, the founder of McDonald's Corporation, he used to say if you're green you grow, if you’re ripe you rot. What does that even mean?

Well, it means that you should never arrive, you should never be too cool for school. One of the most dangerous things for an entrepreneur to say, is I know it all. I've been to the trainings, I've read the book, I've been to the seminar, I know everything, I don't need to learn anymore. This is where you start going downhill, because once you arrive, the only way is down. So that's why Jim Rohn used to say, let the end of your life find you climbing a new mountain, not sliding down the old one.

That's why we always need to be improving ourselves and always need to be growing no matter how much knowledge you gain, no matter how much you reach, no matter how much money you make doesn't even matter if you reach the top rank in your company, there is always a way to grow. They say the biggest room in the world is room for improvement. And like Tony Robbins always talks about CANI- Constant and Never Ending Improvement.

There is two things that most people desire in their life. Once you've taken care of food, shelter, spouse, etcetera, once you've taken care of the basic human needs, the top two human needs that most people require in their life to truly feel satisfied, to truly feel happy in their life is growth and contribution, which means making progress; making constant progress, and helping other people, contributing. Because once you've made enough money to survive, etcetera, it's no longer just, “Ah I need to survive. I need more money in my bank account.” Somebody who's made billions why do they keep working? Why do they keep creating? Not because they need another billion, they’re already done and they could retire and three generations could live on that money. It's no longer just about the money. It's more about impact. It's more about legacy. It's more about creating something; contributing, helping other people.

But another part of it is growth, constant pruning, because if you don't feel like you’re growing, if you don't feel like you're progressing, if you don't feel like you’re moving forward, that's when people get unhappy, that's when people get depressed, that's when people get dissatisfied with their life because they don't feel that movement, they don't feel that progress. That's why you should never be ripe. That's why you should never say I know at all.

Always find a way to grow, always grab the next book and say, “Well, let me read this one. Maybe there's something new in this, maybe there's an idea, maybe there's a nugget that will transform my life, that will help me to become more confident, more healthy, smarter, sharper.”’ Always look for ways to improve yourself and it doesn't have to cost enough it doesn't have to cost thousands of pounds or dollars or whatever; sometimes it's very simple. Sometimes it's a free YouTube video, sometimes is a free audio podcast. But always try to grow yourself.

Never stop at one point and just say, “Ah can't be bothered.” Because that's when you lose your passion, that’s when you lose your motivation, that’s when you lose your energy, because you're not motivated anymore. And people very often ask me, they say, “How do you keep your motivation?” That's how, by growing yourself all the time, the reason why I always have the motivation, the reason why I always feel passionate, and I want to keep doing and doing things is because I constantly grow myself. I constantly invest in myself. I constantly learn. I constantly develop myself so that this motivation never runs out. It never expires; my batteries never go down because I keep recharging them.
