“If God were our one and only desire we would not be so easily upset when our opinions do not find outside acceptance.”
― Thomas à Kempis, The Imitation of Christ.
In this quote, We were meant to understand the importance of being groomed by one who knows more and without a divided focus. The same applies to business. Business is not just a trade, it is an act. Yes it is an act of maximizing profit while abiding by most of your your social responsibilities.
If only we have one to mentor us and the right way, we may not have any need to start over but that is not always the case because having a mentor is similar to leaving your will to be in control into another person's hand. It is just that because, no matter how direct it may sound, the mentor is not your father but someone who is their to tell you the hardcore truth so that you have a happy ending.
