Life can be much broader, once you discover one simple fact, and that is that everything around you that you call “life” was made up by people that were no smarter than you. And you can change it, you can influence it, you can build your own things that other people can use. Once you learn that, you’ll never be the same again.

Entrepeneurship offers both the enterpreneur and those along for the ride the opportuntity to do more than just deal with obstacles. They become vitalists, people who seek to become through their work more than they were before. their work gives them the opportunity to display heroic virtues of determination, courage, and cunning. It is the difficulty of entrepreneurship that leads to the fullest imaginable life. Work provides the framework for self-discovery, for finding out who we can be when we meet great challenges.
