Michael Gerber, a world-renowned business don’t fail because of uncontrollable forces, like competition or lack of money or lazy employees. According to Gerber, the business reflects the person running it … which is why business owners need to go to work ON their business, not IN their business. In Gerber’s words, “Your business is nothing more than a distinct reflection of who you are. If your thinking is sloppy, your business will be sloppy. If you are disorganized, then your business will be disorganized. If you are greedy, the people around you will be greedy. So if your business is to change – as it must if you are to be successful then – YOU must change.”
In my opinion, Gerber is right on the money. To become truly successful in any endeavor – whether it’s business … or parenting … or coaching the local Little League baseball team – we have to go to work ON our lives, not IN our lives!
And that, my friends, this is why YOU, INC. is the new paradigm in personal success.
