BE A FREE THINKER AND DON’T ACCEPT EVERYTHING YOU HEAR AS TRUTH. BE CRITICAL AND EVALUATE WHAT YOU BELIEVE IN- ARISTOTLE.
Aristotle was one of the greatest philosophers to walk planet earth. We can credit the rise of Democracy to him. According to Aristotle, A free thinker is someone who doesn’t accept everything people say as true or as a lie without first proofing it. He was critically about people reaching a conclusion based on the believe system of others. As an entrepreneur, it is risky for you to make a decision because of how some people feel about that decision without doing your own research.
In 1999 when Jack Ma started Ali Baba everybody saw the area of ecommerce as a dead zone in China, however he registered his internet business when everyone had said the business will die, he refused to follow the norm and 19 years after he’s the richest man in China.

You have to be critical about your decisions and evaluate the outcome. Nobody can see what you see.
