Supply and Demand

“Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.” – Theodore Roosevelt

We are all called to adventure on the journey to deal with the unforeseen and things we may call at the time "unbeatable" or "not faceable".

In those moments you're right, pain isn't something we can escape from,

but reflecting

acknowledging

thinking about what led us up to that moment is the way we move into a growth stage of life.

Principles are about learning in cycles.

Success is not a straight line no matter how many million-dollar lotto stories get played on the news.

So what's your goal?

When Ray Dalio began his understanding of his principles it took him time to learn ways to avoid falling into the same mistakes he made in the past and look forward.

What we can do is a lot.

Like, change the world with what we create.

Impact those around us and help our communities

Be good fathers, brothers, sons.

Principles are important because they are the framework for the type of world you want to live in.

Don’t you want to live in a place that adheres to things we all believe in? Fairness, honor, dignity, peace?

Ray Dalio brings this idea to his focus in his book Principles a book I highly recommend you check out.
