“If you look at success, it's generally around the intangibles. Life is very short. You don't have the world around you. Tomorrow is not guaranteed. Increase your courage, harden up a little bit. Take a cold shower, don't always take a warm shower. Acclimate your mind and your body to doing things that are harder. There is no money in what's easy. Focus on these intangibles, the ability to habit on of courage.“

“I remember when I was in my early twenties and I was keen to be successful entrepreneur. But there are many things I learned at school which I was still taking with me. Things like, for example, that you should not really have to rely on other people, you have to do everything yourself. Bill Gates didn't start Microsoft knowing it's going to be involved with the internet because internet didn't exist back then. Every one of the entrepreneurs that you can think of, they all get involved in new things that there is no way they could have know they would get involved in. But they succeeded by being opened, creating the environment and the network including opportunities that allow things to happen.“

"Recently somebody asked me the definition of entrepreneur. You have to have an idea, you have to never quit, you have to do a lot of different things. But something I have added over the course of last few years: you have to be able to withstand pressure. If you can't handle pressure, you cannot be a great entrepreneur."

"If you want to change the world and you want to do it on a massive scale the first thing you need to do is study lots of people who have already changed the world to see what you can learn from their experiences, what patterns you could extract.
