Every new entrepreneur hopes to find great success in the marketplace; but there’s always an inherent risk in becoming successful:
Companies are always better when they’re lean and hungry and looking to grow and they’re never the same again once the genius monsters have been fed and paid off.
I can’t think of a current Genius Monster who has found financial success with a business, cashed out big time, and then come back to invent an idea or start a company that was ever as successful as the first payout.
Hunger demands starvation; inspiration requires desperation.
Once success is harvested from the marketplace, that yearning and that inherent want for recognition and confirmation of ideals can never be realized or spent again.
It is better, I wager, to make up your life with many small successes to keep the perpetuation of the pendulum of living alive and swinging — because only through a series of wins can the grander end prize of an immortal life be realized.
