Most people are not closers

The following excerpt from Neil Strauss' The Game really touches base with my personal convictions. The crowd is almost always wrong, grow some balls and stand out.

One of the reasons I became a writer is that, unlike starting a band, directing movies, or acting in a theatrical production, you can do it alone. Your success and failure depend entirely on yourself. I've never trusted collaborations, because most people in this world are not closers. They don't finish what they start; they don't live what they dream; they sabotage their own progress because they're afraid they won't find what they seek.

Yes I've read The Game. Who hasn't?
