Everyone has some kind of principles in life, without them, we wouldn’t behave and do what we do. Principles, for example, form the habits, the relationships, businesses, and careers.
It’s hard to imagine someone living a life without principles, thus we barely use them to our advantage, to achieve and get whatever we want out of life. Most of the time people take someone else’s principles and views without thinking and evaluating if they are good or bad for us.
A successful investor and most innovative businessman Ray Dalio talks about the power and importance of having own principles in his new 2017 bestselling book called, Principles: Life and Work, and the second book (that is coming out the next year 2018), Economic and Investment Principles.
In order to discover and shape your own principles, it’s important to study yourself and your behavior, why you do what you do, and how it affects you in what way. The second most important rule is to be truly and rapidly open-minded, so you can also study and evaluate others opinions and disagreements.
For example, Ray Dalio has built the company that is totally unique in a way how it operates. His company has been featured in many studies by the world top psychologists in the past, learn how uniquely and effectively the business could work.
