Reid Hoffman Jump off a cliff quote Share this Graphic on Pinterest | Share on Facebook

World changers take risks.

They do as Reid Hoffman, one of the co-founders of LinkedIn, suggests. They jump off a cliff and then assemble an airplane on the way down. They demonstrate faith, which Martin Luther King, Jr. described as taking the first step on a staircase when you don’t even see the second step.
