When we study everyday, “underdog” entrepreneurs, we find that there are few true traits that unify them. Instead, these dark horses, as Harvard Lecturer Todd Rose calls them, are working tirelessly to reach fulfillment.
“Find out what motivates you and stay close to that…we spend a lot of time telling children what they should care about and very little time helping them discover that for themselves. That has to change if we are serious about helping our children live meaningful and fulfilling lives.”
Read this quick article from the Harvard Ed Magazine about the value of following these dark horses. If you want to dive deeper, Rose has also co-authored a book, Dark Horse: Achieving Success Through the Pursuit of Fulfillment, that explores four dimensions of the “dark horse mindset” that anyone can embrace.
