We are always interested in success stories. Every person has his own story. And it is not the point in which area you strive to succeed. The approach and life credo that helps you realize your potential is most important. For Ray Dalio, one of the richest people in the world, the founder of Bridgewater Associates, the world’s biggest hedge fund firm, the key to success is his principles, i.e. a clearly articulated system of his own life attitudes. The book captivates readers from the first paragraph, focuses us to think and to argue, leading to some conclusion.

Some Tips to Always Be in Trend

The world of books is really great and exciting. Try to read books as much as possible and re-read them again and again. Sometimes even mediocre or well-known information generates cool ideas. It all depends on your perception at the moment. Your conclusions from what you read may be unexpected and pleasantly surprise you.

The book won’t necessarily be a revelation for us since we are all quite intelligent people having critical thinking and brought up on the best examples of world literature. However, for a creative person whose brain is in the permanent search of new interesting decisions, both knowledge and emotions are important. Delight, approval, agreement, or resentment can be the impulse that will guide your thought on the right track.
