Through this post, I hereby recommend Ray Dalio’s profound book summary animation video (link below).
Playing in the background while I write this post, the linked YouTube video herein inspired me to recommend it to the wonderful people reading this.
As background (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ray_Dalio), Ray Dalio is firmly embedded in the conversation of the world’s most successful hedge fund investors. He is an unmistakable billionaire and doesn’t need to tell anyone that. Son of a jazz musician and homemaker, he is a first generation one-percenter. People of exhorbitant wealth tend to forget how it felt before they were wealthy. Mr. Dalio is a clear exception to that trend.
If you are like me, you enjoy regularly exercising your inspiration muscle. Dalio’s video now has an indefinite spot on my daily or weekly inspiring videos to watch list.
Hats off to him for keeping his perspective even after reaching the zenith of what is sometimes rightfully known as an uppity world.
As someone who is currently looking for the next challenge and opportunities, my strongest takeaway from watching it is finding out what my ego and blind spots are keeping me from seeing.
