On suffering

“The more desire I have for something to work out a certain way, the less likely I am to see the truth.”

— Naval, The Almanack of Naval Ravikant

The best founders are the ones that suffered and prevailed.

It is not easy to build a large, high-output business.

The optimal moment for progress is when it becomes impossible to deny reality. Then, you must act to transform.

Cancer can be a force. Betrayal can be a force.

Your tears of suffering are fertile ground for your heart, as better times will blossom.

Anger can be quite positive if channeled properly.

Think clearly with your authority.

Understand that all problems can be solved, if you have enough tranquility to spend time with yourself, in a room, doing nothing.

Before a beautiful tree can grow, you must feed the soil with fecal matter.

Suffering is the fastest way to progress.

See reality for what is, not for what you want it to be.

"The best revenge is massive success."

— Frank Sinatra
