As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.
A vision is something you see and others don’t. Some people would say that’s a pocket definition of lunacy. But it also defines entrepreneurial spirit.
Be ready to revise any system, scrap any method, abandon any theory, if the success of the job requires it.
If we tried to think of a good idea, we wouldn’t have been able to think of a good idea at all. You just have to have a solution for a problem in your own life.
Players should never fight. A real businessman or entrepreneur has no enemies. Once he understands this, the sky’s the limit.

The best revenge is massive success.
You must expect great things of yourself before you can do them.

Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.
