And in the end… (The Financial Athlete #105)

What have you learned from investing? More importantly, what have you learned about yourself from the process of investing? Have you developed the capacity for self-control? Have you learned to evaluate situations effectively and adapt to change? Are you grounded in reality and yet have not shattered your dreams?

People resist self-discovery for lack of courage to face what is unpleasant within. To unleash self-discovery, be honest with yourself. From self-discovery comes self-knowledge. From self-knowledge comes development of character. A mark of character is giving with no desire of something in return. Share the wealth of knowledge you acquired to those eager to learn. Invest in others to improve their lives. Receiving is only complete with giving. This forms the circle of true riches.

“No man can become rich without himself enriching others.”
–Andrew Carnegie
