    It may be a hard pill to swallow but if it were easy it wouldn’t be worth so much and we wouldn’t call it success. Seth agrees. Here’s his post and the link to his blog:

    Adversity And The Route To Success

    Resource-rich regions often fall behind in developing significant industrial and cultural capabilities. Japan does well despite having very few resources at all.

    Well-rounded and popular people rarely change the world. The one voted most likely to succeed probably won’t.

    Genuine success is scarce, and the scarcity comes from the barriers that keep everyone from having it. If it weren’t for the scarcity, it wouldn’t be valuable, after all.

    It’s difficult to change an industry, set a world record, land big clients, or do art that influences others. When faced with this difficulty, those with other, seemingly better options see the barrier and walk away.

    Why bother? The thinking is that we can just pump some more oil or smile and gladhand our way to an acceptably happy outcome.

    On the other hand, people who believe they have fewer options take a look at the barrier and realize that even though it will be difficult to cross, it’s the single best option they’ve got.

    This is one of the dangers of overfunded/undertested startup companies. Without an astute CEO in charge, they begin to worry more about not losing what they’ve already got than the real reason they started the project in the first place.
