Last year, I flew a UN helicopter to meet his cabinet. Yesterday, my phone rang. It was His Excellency. He said, “when can you return?” Covid-19 has destroyed one of the most exciting things in life: bringing big changes where impacts are highest. Young people here, let me tell you one thing: never miss an opportunity to do your best. I meet influential people around the world – very rich people, political leaders, etc – and in nearly all of them, I expanded an opportunity through a small opening.
When given an opportunity, PREPARE, DELIVER and RISE. Be so valuable that a president can “spend” his precious two hours listening to you. Invest in knowledge and accelerate ahead – be a fountain of knowledge and build MINES of Knowledge in and around you!
Knowledge. Knowledge. Knowledge. Nothing opens palaces, presidential villas, corporate boards, etc than it. It is the best product you can buy!
