In my experience, business owners can be separated into two basic groups – light bulbs and laser beams. The traits of each technology closely mirror the traits of business owners.
Business owners are like light bulbs or lasers.
Some owners are happy to be shine their light and go home. They are happy to be one of the crowd. They are content being good enough to get by and keep a roof over their head and the doors open.
Other business owners want to be something more powerful. They are compelled to be a force in the world. They let no obstacle get in their way and they continually adapt to be more useful and effective.
In my experience, only about 20% of business owners are lasers. The rest are everyday light bulbs.
There’s nothing wrong with being a light bulb. We wouldn’t be a very productive society without them. They are the everyday workers of our business world.
If you want to be a laser beam, however, then commit to getting focused and building a system that will make you unstoppable. If you need help, check out this video.
