What do business owners have in common with Giant Panda bears?

In 2006, scientists reported that the number of pandas living in the wild may have been underestimated at about 1,000. The giant panda is among the world’s most adored and protected rare animals.

One of the reasons that the Giant Panda is endangered is because of its diet. It’s diet primarily consists of Bamboo. Bamboo is very low in nutrition. This is why they are have to continually eat and are always conserving energy. Making slow lumbering movements.

What does this have to do with you and your business?

Unlike the Giant Panda business owners are completely responsible for their future existence. We have the ability to plan and execute our plans, working towards a better future.  Compared to the Giant Panda’s  poor diet of Bamboo, business owners can choose their diet too.

The diet I am referring to is the diet of information. We can continually “feed” our minds with business education that will keep us growing as leaders. This will then reflect in continued growth in your business, high motivation, and energy levels. I always say “What you Earn is equal to what you Learn”.  So, if what you earn is equal to what you learn, then why wouldn’t you spend as much time as possible learning how to be a better business owner?

We have an ability to control our existence, it is simply a matter of choice. Choose to be engaged in your business. 100% commitment to education and the continuing learning process is your insurance policy for not being listed on the endangered species list or worse becoming extinct.
