Chinese Animal Zodiac is fun to learn. Especially when viewed from the perspective of if this can be applied in my business.
The Chinese are very clever.
Want to know how old a woman is, without being rude by asking straight out?
Ask her what her Chinese Animal Zodiac sign is.
It's viewed in generations. So, you can get a pretty good idea, as she will usually only fall under approximately 3 to 5 ages, each 12 years apart. This question helps us to observe the present moment more carefully. (Your welcome)

Now let's stretch our imaginations on this, and expand this into business.
Think in terms of departments within your business, and each animal's personality traits.
(Think and Grow Rich - Napoleon Hill - style)
(The rat's personality trait is:
They are the most industrial person, who has the most resources
(Recourse or Research Department))))
The personality trait of the Rat is:
Adaptable, Alert, Bold,
Calmness and good in business
Cheerful, Observant, Outgoing, Sociable
(Hardest worker (leader)
(Frontman/woman – representing the company)))
Calm, Conscientious, Fair,
Inspiring confidence in others
Opinionated, but says very little,
Patient, Reliable, Strong,
Stubborn – As they believe strongly in themselves, and they hate to be challenged or fail
Tiger: (Fierce – willing to take that chance when you are not looking (be careful)))
Strong-willed, once they make up their minds, they will not change it easily. They will never regret what they said. They are born with confidence, so they always impress people with an image of power and authority.
(Sweet but always Looking to hide – take no responsibility)
Tame and tender animals and swift in move. Soft and tender and personality traits. They keep a modest attitude and keep a pleasant relationship with people around. They will not be irritated easily and they avoid squirrels as much as possible.
(Not of the earth – Ego needs to be inflated (Bruce Lee)))
Ambitious, energetic, leadership
Power and capability,
Strong drive to realize their dreams
(Tend to be cunning – they have a poison - always looking to bite you when you are not looking – not afraid to take your life even when you are looking. They want their presence known - very cunning)))
Intelligent, wise, and private
Good at communication, but say little
(Good in business – Good employee – Not necessarily a good owner of a business – they need someone to lead them in direction – or else they run wild)
Zeal and Passion, energetic, warm-hearted, positive, enthusiastic
(Beautiful, timid, nice, very smart. But they tend to get into the wrong environment – need help not getting lost in their beauty or qualities – and take it to the next level)))
Creative and have artist talent, easy-going, have good manners and charm, sensitive and compassionate, want to make everyone happy, preferring peace and quiet
(Agile and smart – but tend to get into a lot of mischiefs – due to lack of control – be careful with monkeys as of who you call “friends” or “family”)))
Sharp, smart, but naughty,
Fast learning and crafty opportunist. They have many interests and need partners who can stimulate them.
Cleaver and creative, but cannot always show their talents properly
(Chest always out – they are the only voice – they tend to not have the right type of people with the right type of voices – their environment tends to crumble – they have to learn to associate with the right type of team – so their environment does not crumble)
Strong. Self-respect, deep thinkers, honest, bright, communicative, ambitious, capable, and warm-hearted.
Strong self-respect, and seldom relying on others
Most are pretty or handsome and like to dress up
(Always has the bark – always great at talking – always great at sales – the problem is, they do not know when to turn it off – then they do wrong and get into the wrong environment – and they hurt a lot of people with their words)))
Playfulness, chase pro-ness, curiosity, fearlessness, sociability, aggressiveness, broader dimension, (shyness/boldness continuum)
Bore – Pig
(Smartest of all the all 12 and the last – it’s the closest to our organ system – they do a lot of heart transplants – they get dirty in order to stay clean – they are one of the most highly intelligent animals)
Good-tempered, kind-hearted, positive, loyal,
They do whatever they want with Strength.
If we can embody all 12 then we master the art of being great leaders
Now I am a leader / Because now I understand people
You can not run a business unless you understand people
