6/6 (Tue.) Discover Your Unfair Advantage (Host: Julia Ho)

The Unfair Advantage by Ash Ali and Hasan Kubba
The Unfair Advantage: How You Already Have What It Takes to Succeed!
Our unfair advantages are the things that make us special and give us an edge over others!


Session 1
1. Do you think life is fair? Why?
2. What were your top three attributes, such as skills, physical characteristics, smartness or characters, praised by your senior family members, relatives or teachers when you were a child?
3. Do you still have the attributes from question 2?
4. What are your top three features, such as money, intelligence, luck, education or status, which people envy you the most?

Session 2
1. How does your unique combination of education and experience allow you to stand out over others?
2. How might you stack new skills and expertise to create unfair advantage?
3. How have you been lucky up to this point and where can you go to increase your exposure to new people, ideas and trends to increase the probability of getting lucky?
4. Where do you notice problems that few others are seeing and how can you be more resourceful?

I guess the key word is "unfair". We all have advantages and disadvantages. But if you see the advantages as something so good that it's even "unfair" to others, then you can start to see things in a very positive way. A Ted talker says that success is not predictive by your IQ; it's more up to your positive levels, your social support and your ability to see stress as a challenage instead of as a threat.

Some people just have expections too high. When they fail to achieve them, they think they are at fault. We can have our goals and desires, which lead us to one future over another. But don't let your desires and goals fool you.
Personally I don't trust those entroproner self-guilding books. It's very likely that in the end, their readers not only won't be entrepreneurs, but also would be unhappy.
In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.
