Owning a business is a privilege

Years ago, my brother asked me about my business. At the time, I was overwhelmed with the responsibilities and obligations of running a business, so I kept saying, “I’ve got to do this,” and “I’ve got to do that.”

My brother told me I needed to change the letter o to the letter e. I get to do so many things, because I own a business. After initially scoffing at his suggestion, now I’m the beneficiary of his insight.

Owning a business is a privilege that most never experience. While it’s easy to get bogged down in the day-to-day, switching got to with get to gives me a more positive mindset and reminds me how fortunate I am.
