How The Man George Soros Came To Be
For just one moment, take a look at your life and put the pieces together. You’re where you are and who you are because of a very long process. None of it happened over night. Though most of us stand in awe at what George Soros has accomplished in one lifetime, we think it better to honor how much he couldn’t accomplish.
For example, men of Soros’ greatness lose many things before they’re able to gain anything. When studying the lives of the world’s greatest entrepreneurs, for example, we often see struggles that other men avoided. And it’s because of these specific challenges that men often become the exceptions to the rule. Know more on businessinsider.com about George Soros.
A Long Road Ahead
So we won’t just honor the name of George by highlighting the man’s greatest features. We’ll instead put together a picture of the long road that brought a young man named George Soros to where we see him today. That road began in the most unlikely of situations. And it’s hard to imagine how it all came to be.
Today, with peace abounding in so many areas, it’s hard to picture what it would be like in a state of war. Yet war is what the young George Soros experienced at the age of 13. This was World War II to be exact. Nazi occupation of the financial mogul’s home country of Hungary caused George and his family to become refugees.
Which should shine light into why Mr. Soros is known around the world as an advocate for refugees.
Where Society Opens Its Doors
This should also make it clear why the ideas of George’s Open Society Foundation are driven forward with such passion. George Soros believes in the merits of an “open society” because he also needed such to be accepted in the world he was expelled into. That world, like any other social group, made it more difficult for him and his family.
The relevancy of his life experience made it possible for him to see a better world. But this vision wasn’t limited to him alone. It is laid in Soros’ heart and from a real experience. And now, we all understand how this man came to be. Read his profile at Forbes.
