It would be no exaggeration to say that human ingenuity, determination, and action are more in need now than in any prior era in history.

However, there are limits to what just one person can do. Exceptional talent and constant effort are indispensable, but they alone will not allow you to take advantage of business opportunities. For good ideas and an excellent business to provide a service to society, it is vital and essential that the excellence of that business and its ideas are more widely known. Building a good business is building a good network.

An entrepreneur needs to have the kind of tough mindset that can dream of success while at the same time repeatedly overcoming real-life problems. Some people say that the path to success is impossible, but if you focus on difficult work, and if it is work that can change the world, then the only road to success is to utilize all your strength to utilize a business model built by carefully finding a path through all the difficulties. One success will be linked with the next. This becomes a cycle and a framework for numerous future successes.
