“Think for yourself while being radically open-minded.” is his claim to fame.
I just finished his book Principles and it really makes you want to write down your principles to abide by so that life is much easier when you have to make important decisions whether its family or business you have to choose between when it comes down to it.
For those of you who do not know Ray Dalio is the chairman of Bridgewater Associates which is the biggest hedge fund in the world.
Bridgewater is known for its culture for being able to be radically transparent and how they challenge and defy intending to change the norm culture of corporate America.
I have also noticed that most billions and Forbes magazine features have all recommended Joseph Campbell’s the Hero with a Thousand Faces highlighting the Hero’s journey and how life is a series of obstacles and to enjoy the process along the way. It’s never about the end or destination but more about appreciating the moments good and/or bad along the way.
“The belief that I’m at a stage in life when making others successful without me is the most important thing I can do.”
“Love looking at what you don’t know, your mistakes, and your weaknesses, because understanding them is essential for making the most of your life.”
This is so crucial because the moment you learn to embrace your weaknesses you will be able to live a much more fulfilled life. It is in our darkest moments when we learn the most about ourselves and what we are capable of.
Purpose: I create an empowering context for curious and hungry people looking for fulfillment, experiences, and creativity. We do this by developing their growth mindset, introducing self-love, and powerful group experiences. It results in people with strong boundaries, resilient mental health, and practical life skills
People leave with the ability to land their dream job, have autonomy and flexibility with their lifestyle, travel the world, and create from their heart and soul.
Davidson was once broke, insecure, low-confidence, and frustrated by doing all the wrong activities. Addicted to drugs, validation, and wallowing in self-pity. No relationship to family, and at the mercy of other people’s suggestions and opinions.
It was hell.
After spending $100k hiring different coaches, traveling the world doing workshops around the world, reading>1000 books, and through curiosity, have created the most effective system to remove people from that situation. My life’s work is to bring joy and abundance to people who as on a similar path as I was and bring back the joy and abundance of their life.
Through shared experiences and storytelling, I inspire and model behaviors that lead to a richer, more fulfilled life full of joy, experiences, passion, and ecstasy from the richness of relationships and being able to experience the depths of the human experience.
