Wolves vs. Sheep

I was reading through the newspaper a few days ago and ran across this article by Judge Andrew P. Napolitano and I thought I would share it with you:

“There are two types of people who stand out in the United States today: sheep and wolves.  Sheep stay in their herd and follow their shepherd without questioning where he is leading them.  Sheep trust that the shepherd looks out for their safety.  Sheep believe that the shepherd would never do anything to cause them hard, that he only wants to protect them from the dangers of the world that lie outside the safety of his herd.

Wolves, on the other hand, do not aimlessly follow a shepherd.  In the darkness of night, wolves howl, alerting the shepherd to their presence.  Wolves are the people who do not passively accept the rules and direction of the shepherd… Wolves question the shepherd and act in a way that forces the shepherd also to question his decisions.  Wolves challenge government regulations, reject government assistance, and demand that the government recognize and protect their natural rights.  They are rugged individualists.

Unfortunately, the majority of Americans are sheep.”

Generally speaking, most entrepreneurs are wolves.  They believe that the status quo is not for them and they demand better.

I encourage you to continue to demand better for yourself, your business and for those around you.

Because I know that the recession is nipping at the heels of even some of my best customers, I’m offering a 2 for 1 special on consulting for the rest of September.  Go here and get on board.  If you purchase a 30 minute session, you’ll get me for 60 minutes.  If you purchase a full day of consulting, you’ll get me for 2 days.  You get the idea.

Do it now.
