There is a dark side to our competitive nature as individuals that often begrudges the success of others. I’m not sure why this and there are probably many psychological and neurological explanations. What I do know is that individual success is good for a community. In business this means more people get hired, employees have steady and stable incomes, more vendors get paid, tax revenues go up, charitable giving increases,and more discretionary dollars are spent on other things. The good news with entrepreneuers is that most of the fruits of their success stays local. We should root for as many people to be successful as possible.
The truth in life is that every person you lead, manage, do business with or meet is an individual. We all are unique like snowflakes with each us different in some way, shape or form. Experts often try to categorize people or attempt to make it easy to interpret/predict their actions and motivations, but it is never quite that simple.
