This is what I mean by Position of Strength. It’s not by chance, but because you know how to identify trends, target future opportunities, evaluate the odds, and put yourself in a position of strength. Jeff Bezos started Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud in 2006 and since then, according to TechCrunch, they have grown into the most successful cloud infrastructure company on the planet.
That’s what it is to be a visionary. You look at the trends, identify the opportunities you want to pursue, evaluate your chance of success and take calculated risks to achieve your ultimate objectives.
As an entrepreneur, being able to perceive trends years in advance will give you an edge over your competitors and ensures your durability. It is one thing to identify the first opportunity out of luck, but it is another to keep foreseeing opportunities for many years and stay ahead of elite CEOs and strategist working there asses off to take you down. So open your eyes, read, stay informed, think and constantly question and challenge the status quo!
