The totally successful monopolist

The ultimate successful monopolist will have

1. A virtuous cycle between Strengths and Opportunities.
2. A reinforcing loop in its favor between Opportunities and Threats because its Strengths had triggered it.
3. Threats that yields weaker Weaknesses as a result.
4. Eventually leading a a reinforcing loop in Strengths favor between itself and Weaknesses.

Not easy to arrive at this sweet spot and neither can it last very long given that all reinforcing loops must eventually cease. Those that accelerate come to an end even faster unless they can find new sources of growth.

Easy to make the mistake of drawng a demotion line between Threats and Weaknesses
