Alex Charfen talks about what he calls “The Contribution Equation.” There is a foundational equation at the heart of the achievements of every major figure throughout history. This Contribution Equation is both the shortcut to success and, as Alex contends, the meaning of life.

1 Simple Thing Action

If you are an Entrepreneurial Personality Type, there is nothing wrong with you, and you are not alone. Everyone in history who matters is just like you and has struggled just like you. EPT’s are the people who change the world because, as the rest of society desperately clings to the status quo and strives to become average, EPT’s wake up every day knowing there’s something bigger and more important, and something we have to contribute and change. If you are willing to lean into your strengths and forget anything that anyone has called a weakness, you can go out and change the world.
