I believe this pic pretty much sums it.

If you believe that your own hunger matters more than your team/stakeholders, your behavior will create a battleground like attitude (kill them all) and you will have prosperity (lots of $$$)- but no peace.

But if you put others hungers before yours, it will be a (fun) playground and you will have peace (no promise on prosperity though).


Isn’t this the case with most tech startups? Founders have put themselves before others and we all know the result?

An entrepreneur’s belief defines the behavior (of the team) and drives business.
