"Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting:
The Soul that rises with us, our life's Star,
Hath had elsewhere its setting,
And cometh from afar:
Not in entire forgetfulness,
And not in utter nakedness,
But trailing clouds of glory do we come"
― William Wordsworth
The minute you stop caring about what others think is when you wake up to self-actualization.
Founders that build decacorns are the ones that are at peace with themselves, to the fullest extension.
The Soul is individual.
We all come to the earth plane with a specific plan.
The further we run from it, the more the ego is fed it's favorite food: useless mental drama.
Once you understand how to overcome resistance and build via your SELF you will prevail.
Like a relentless force of light, it is impossible to cancel an inevitable founder.
You can't kill, reproduce or beat anyone at their own game.
The path to eternal victory comes from pure authenticity.
Shoe Dog, the recently published book by Phil Knight (Nike's founder), is a fantastic read that demonstrates how challenging it is to build a global business.
Inevitably, someone will attack you in life. It might sometimes come hidden in humor, explicitly demonstrated in public or private aggression.
