1) Bob Dorf
Two things about empires.
First: they don’t stick around eternally. Ask the Romans, Mongolians or British.
So yes, even the mighty Angry Birds empire can fall.
And second? They imagine to be too big to fail.
Bob Dorf tells you an admonitory tale in one tweet: matters not how great, your victories can fade away.
Reason enough to cut the hubris, stay modest and go plant seeds for meaningful achievements. Little hint: you don’t have to serve a million people to make a stand dissimilarity.

2) Ben Horowitz
Co-founder of Andreessen Horowitz, author of The Hard Thing About Hard Things, venture capitalist
“Capitalism is the best system in the world, but also extremely frustrating…A nurse, whose dedication to her craft saves lives and brings hope to the hopeless, will make a fraction of what a crappy banker, who brings misery to everyone she encounters, earns.” – via @bhorowitz
Sound like something a prominent venture capitalist would say?
Horowitz utilizes his extraordinary gift for observation here. The facts tell the reality; your assumptions don’t matter. Even the sacred cow of capitalism gets examined under Horowitz’s microscope.
Try this: in your business today, look at something beneath your nose as if you’ve never seen it before, and just scrutinize. Like Horowitz did with capitalism. How clear is your vision? Is some taboo coloring your acuity?
The answer might change the nature of your startup.

“Success is what happens after you’ve survived all your mistakes.” – via @RyanWestwood
Ever unsuccessful for something? Well done — you get a pat on the back. You took a risk and went for it.
Ever suffered a severe disappointment picked you up and tried once more? Congratulations: you’ve just raised yourself above the pack. Do again until you get success.
When it comes to disappointment, entrepreneurs must live in a weird world. Just like you can’t climb a mountain without oxygen, you can’t reach success without mistakes.
Right on, Ryan.

Founder of Science of People, body language expert
“I’d rather be weird than fake.” – via @vvanedwards
You don’t have the much middle ground as an entrepreneur. You’re either a little peculiar or a little fake.
Which will you select?
Warning: huge knowledge overdose in Edwards’ comment. Acknowledge your weirdness and you just might stumble on who you truthfully require becoming.
Simon Sinek showed great effort as an entrepreneur until he figured out what he wanted to do: to motivate people to do the things that motivate them. And what happened? High time achievement.
Take it from an old weirdo (me): go ahead, cuddle it. The right people will thank you for it.

5) Richard Koch
Author of The 80/20 Principle, entrepreneur, investor
“Is your company worth believing in? The most successful companies are those who have a purpose shared by all.” – via @RichardKoch8020
Ask yourself: why does your company exist?
Without an obvious reply, why should anybody believe in what you do and give you their greatest efforts?
The keywords in Koch’s tweet? The most victorious companies. Sure, you can gain traction without a definite purpose. But locked up at the top of the entrepreneurial pyramid sits one thing: the idea.
Start with a grand idea, framed around a customer.
