There’s no investment alpha in the average. You are NGMI by being middle of the pack. I read the June 2020 investor briefing by James Anderson of Scottish Mortgage AGM— one of the best performing investment funds in Europe. It’s one of the most powerful presentations on investment philosophy that I’ve found recently. I got so much out of it that I re-read several times and also watched the matching Youtube video. Here’re some notes…

A lot of us have had a tumultuous relationship with 2020. Things certainly didn’t go according to plan, did they? Life volunteered you to be the change champion when you simply wanted things to stay where they were. Routines were disrupted, jobs became precarious, and human connections got tested… But no matter how disoriented 2020 may have made you feel, one thing is for certain– the whirlwinds we’re going through this year is only the…

From the view of your human self, disruptions are terrible events. From the view of your soul, disruptions are some of the greatest blessings life can ever give you. In particular, expansion of consciousness and greater personal freedom rely on two kinds of disruptions: Disruption of personal identity Disruption between action and result  The first disruption brings the realization that your real identity is not a small human, but an unbreakable, undestroyable manifestation of the…

From a certain perspective, whatever pain or suffering you’re going through is a gold mine– a rich source for your personal transformation towards a higher potential.

If you want to achieve something that’s bigger than who you are right now, you need to be bigger than who you are right now. That seems pretty obvious, right? But few people actually manage to do that. And there’s a reason for it. In this video, I talk about the internal shift that will give you so much more courage, resilience and creativity in pursuing your dreams. It’s four simple words, yet infinitely powerful.…

(This is taken from a commencement speech I gave at Hack Reactor Remote cohort 23’s graduation.) Today I want to talk with you about how to find your authentic path in life. I believe we’re all born different. And each of us has our unique way to achieve prosperity and fulfillment. It’s a path unique to you.
