Ray’s Advice: Continue to Educate Yourself
According to Ray, intelligent people who are open to recognizing and learning from their weaknesses substantially outperform people with the same abilities who aren’t as open.
It’s easy for many of us when we’re good at something to become complacent. Ray prides himself on learning, similar to Billionaire Mark Cuban.
Mark shared on CNBC how committed he was to life-long learning and often says it is key to his success. In-fact, during this interview Mark shared it’s the top skill we should be teaching our kids. He also shared we should allow them to learn the way they enjoy. If they like learning on Social Media and YouTube like his kids, let them he shared.
School typically doesn’t prepare young people for real-life — unless their lives are spent following instructions and pleasing others. In my opinion, that’s why so many students who succeed in school fail in life ~ Ray Dalio
Ray Dalio shared in his book “Principles” about having taken ski lessons from an instructor who once taught Michael Jordan the same skill.
The instructor said that Jordan, despite already being a champion basketball player, enjoyed the process of making mistakes as he learned a new skill.
Similarly, as investors we should always look for areas of weakness and gravitate toward them as opportunities for growth.

According to Alice, don’t just protect your assets. You should use your money to create value.
Consider making investments that generate income.
There’s a lot more business out there in small-town America than I ever dreamed of ~ Alice Walton
Your portfolio should already generate interest on its own, but those with slightly higher risk tolerance may also consider options like investing in real estate, rental properties, or small business investing.
I love her following words of wisdom: “One of the great responsibilities I have is to manage my assets wisely, so they create value.”

Whether you’ve found a calling or if you’re still searching, passion should be the fire that drives your life’s work.
You don’t have to be a genius or a visionary or even a college graduate to be successful. You just need a framework and a dream ~ Michael Dell
Think back to what you wanted from life when you were just starting out?
Did you want to be a great writer, philanthropist, artist, scientist, inventor? What would you have majored in if money were no object?
Michael shares you should think the same way when it comes to investing.
Don’t lose your sense of purpose just because it’s money. Align your investments with your values and you’ll be much better off.
Mukesh Ambani’s Best Advice for Investing
Mukesh Dhirubhai Ambani is an Indian billionaire businessman. He’s the chairman and largest shareholder of Reliance Industries. Reliance is a Fortune Global 500 company and India’s most valuable company by market value.
Mukesh’s Advice: Establish Non-Financial Goals
According to Ambani, any business that has the sole purpose of making money is not worth doing.
This may not seem like an investment tip, but it is!
Establishing non-financial goals is essential in order to determine the motivation behind your financial objectives. Then it’s all about taking action.
I generally think that I should only speak by action and not by words ~ Mukesh Ambani
Ambani says he learned from his father that “any business that has the sole purpose of making money is not worth doing.”
Similarly, individuals who only invest in assets with the sole purpose of amassing wealth will eventually find themselves questioning the purpose and meaning behind their goal.
Investments that have a clear purpose beyond your financial objectives, tend to do much better.
