Optimism, pessimism, f**k that; we’re going to make it happen. As God is my bloody witness, I’m hell-bent on making it work.

This is a personal mantra.
It’s not a matter of “what if”, it’s a matter of choice.
Escape somewhere. Alone in quiet. And DECIDE what you want to do.
Once you have holistically deiced on something. That’s it. it’s done.
You already decided that it’ll happen so it WILL happen.
Now everybody else just has to catch the fuck up.
Lead them to there.
Ensō (円相) is a Japanese word meaning “circle” and a concept strongly associated with Zen. Ensō is one of the most common subjects of Japanese calligraphy even though it is a symbol and not a character. It symbolizes absolute enlightenment, infinity, strength, elegance, the universe, and the void; it can also symbolize the Japanese aesthetic itself.
As an “expression of the moment” it is often considered a form of minimalist art represent the vast qualities of the universe, conjuring up its grandness, limitless power, and natural phenomena. But enso can just as easily represent the void, the fundamental state in which all distinctions and dualities are removed: ‘Outside — empty, inside — empty, inside and outside — empty.’

"Entrepreneur" is an interesting word. Depending on who you are talking to it can be said a number of ways, but I think the context bias applied to the word is “business owner.” In order for our generation to take action on big world changing ideas we must first clear this bias and start with a new perspective on entrepreneurship.
The French word “entrepreneur” means “one who undertakes.” French economist Jean-Baptiste Say described an entrepreneur to be one who “shifts economic resources out of an area of lower and into an area of higher productivity and greater yield.”
In 1934 Austrian economist Joseph Schumpeter expanded on this and described entrepreneurs as innovators who shatter the status quo and use creative destruction to establish new products and services.
“Creative Destruction” — what a fantastic word. That could very well be the motto of the Millennial generation.
