My life has been a path at the edge of uncertainty. Today, I think we educate kids to be settled in the comfortable chair. You have your job, you have your little car, you have a place to sleep and the dreams are dead. You don't grow on a secure path. All of us should conquer something in life and it needs a lot of work and it needs a lot of risk. In order to grow and to improve you need to be there at the edge of uncertainty.

Vulnerability is not winning or losing; it’s having the courage to show up and be seen when we have no control over the outcome. Vulnerability is not weakness; it’s our greatest measure of courage.

FAITH : the willingness to put yourself on the line in pursuit of those things you find deeply meaningful.

I think it's important to apply critical thinking to what you are doing. By that I mean, the fundamentals of logic. Do you have the right axioms, are they relevant and are you making the right conclusions based on those axioms. That is the critical thinking. but many fail to do that. I think wishful thinking is innate in the human brain. You want things to be the way you wish them to be so you tend to filter information that you shouldn't filer. That is the most common flaw that I see.
It is very difficult to start a company and very painful. That is probably not encouraging. If you need inspiring words. Don't do it.
Starting a business is not for everyone. Starting a business, number one, have a high pain threshold. Starting a company is like eating glass and staring into the abyss.
I am not anyone's saviour. I am just trying to think about the future and not be sad.
