“It’s as easy to do something big as it is to do something small, so reach for a fantasy worthy of your pursuit, with rewards commensurate to your effort.
Every entrepreneur knows that feeling: that moment of despair when the only thing you are aware of the giant gap between where you find yourself and the life and business you imagine. Once you succeed, people see only success. If you fail, they see only the failure. Rarely do they see the turning points that could have taken you in a completely different direction. But it’s at these inflection points that the most important lessons in business and life are learned.”
– Stephen A. Schwarzman, What It Takes – Lessons In The Pursuit of Excellence
