What does "look past" mean in the following context?
Whether the issue is disease and hunger in Africa; or poverty in the Middle East; or lack of education across the developing world---we all know the problems. But social entrepreneurs, I believe, have a genetic deficiency. Somehow, the gene that helps them look past the impossible is missing... By nature, entrepreneurs aren't satisfied until they do change the world, and let nothing get in their way. Charities may give people food. But social entrepreneurs don't just teach people to grow food---they're not happy until they've taught a farmer how to grow food, make money, pour the profits back into the business, hire ten other people, and in the process, transform the entire industry.
