You Are Not Your Business Khakis

You must never confuse your business with your own identity.  Never.

If it fails, you are not a failure.  If it grows wildly, you remain the same size.  If it dies, you are not dead.

“You’re not your job.
You’re not how much you have in the bank.
You’re not the car you drive.
You’re not the contents of your wallet.
You’re not your f#%$ing khakis.”

-Tyler Durden in the movie “Fight Club”

Wise words from a movie about recreational fighting, blowing up buildings, and the identity crisis so many people have.  Take them to heart.

My fellow warriors, you are not your business.

You are so much more.

If your business falls down, you can rise up.  But only if you let it go.

Have a great night,
