Sheldon Adelson’s

Sheldon Adelson’s courage to be Different Having Courage to Approach Things Differently After running a dozen or so businesses, I realized that the only way to succeed is to do things differently than the way it was done. And, what I learned is that if you do things differently, success will follow you like a shadow and you won’t get rid of it. So, that’s what I did. People doubted me because they wouldn’t do what I would do. It’s a matter of finding out what that industry does and identifying the opportunity in how to do it differently and then being enough of a risk taker to actually do it differently. People doubted me because nobody thought of doing it the way I did. They were satisfied with the status quo and I’m never satisfied with the status quo. I look at every business and ask: How long can this last? How can I identify the status quo and change it? Don’t be satisfied with the status quo. Have guts to approach things differently. Sponsoring Free Trips to Israel Birthright Israel began with a bold idea - offering a free, life-changing trip to Israel for young Jewish adults between the ages of 18 and 26 and, in doing so, transforming the Jewish future. The mission is to give every Jewish young adult around the world, especially the unaffiliated, the opportunity to visit Israel. Today, Birthright Israel is the largest educational tourism organization in the world. Sheldon Adelson has been sponsoring the program by donating a billion dollars.
