Success might boil down to whom you are working with.

Having the right people around you is more important than even having the right idea or the right kind of resources.

Instead of escaping or shying away from your fears using TV or alcohol, you can sit with your fears in meditation.

Lasting happiness comes from gratitude, connecting with other people and liberation from your self-tortured striving.

Anxiety and Fear are not situational and occasional but can be a constant state of mind.

Learn to cope with them.

Instead of trying to attract people towards you, just be naturally vulnerable and curious.

Your goals will just keep getting bigger and bigger. Don't stop, don't settle and keep achieving.

Lasting success comes with time and perseverance.
