“Some people are born on third base and go through life thinking they hit a triple.” – Barry Switzer

Interesting for a football coach to use a baseball metaphor…

The world has plenty of those who live off someone else’s effort.  This is not dependent on economic status either.

Most entrepreneurs have to figure out how to create value with little or no resources.  In the end, it’s probably a better scenario.  But if you happen to be blessed with the resources of others, be it family wealth, friends and family, venture capital or even government grants, know that these resources were entrusted to you for the purpose of creating value.  Don’t squander it.

No one owes you success.  It can’t bestowed or inherited.  It must be earned.  A step up is a blessing.
