Rather than thinking, 'I’m right'. I started to ask myself, 'How do I know I'm right?'
Principles are ways of successfully dealing with reality to get what you want out of life.
Ray Dalio, one of the world's most successful investors and entrepreneurs, shares the unconventional principles that helped him create unique results in life and business-and which any person or organisation can adopt to better achieve their goals. Dalio’s original Principles has been downloaded over three million times, and this expanded and revised edition is the first version available in print
In 1975, Ray Dalio founded an investment firm, Bridgewater Associates, out of his two-bedroom apartment in New York City. Over forty years later, Bridgewater has grown into the fifth most important private company in the United States, according to Fortune magazine, and Dalio himself has been named to Time magazine’s list of the 100 most influential people in the world. Along the way, Dalio discovered a set of unique principles that have led to Bridgewater’s exceptionally effective culture, which he describes as “an idea meritocracy that strives to achieve meaningful work and meaningful relationships through radical transparency. ”It is these principles, and not anything special about Dalio – who grew up an ordinary kid in a middle-class Long Island neighbourhood- that he believes are the reason behind his success.
