What I Learned Losing a Million Dollars

An enjoy­able read with some good life lessons regard­less of whether you’ve made it to a mil­lion yet or not. This book helps us approach our suc­cess with humil­i­ty as a way to express grat­i­tude for the part of our suc­cess that didn’t have any­thing to do with what we’ve actu­al­ly done.

Like this quote:

Personalizing suc­cess­es sets peo­ple up for dis­as­trous fail­ure. They begin to treat the suc­cess as a per­son­al reflec­tion rather than the result of cap­i­tal­iz­ing on a good oppor­tu­ni­ty, being at the right place at the right time or even being just plain lucky.

The high from “being right” the mar­ket and mak­ing all that mon­ey is unbe­liev­able. It can­not be dupli­cat­ed with drugs. You are total­ly invin­ci­ble. You are imper­vi­ous to all pain. There’s noth­ing bad in the world.

It reminds me of anoth­er of my favorite books (The Four Agreements) that reminds us not to take any of life per­son­al­ly because it’s not per­son­al.
