It’s very rare for me to find a truly self motivated individual. Most of the really self motivated people that I’ve come across tend to be life coaches.
Most life coaches produce books that help people realize their potential or lead more fulfilling lives. I currently follow Tony Robbins and Eckhart Tolle whom are dedicated life coaches. Bill Gates and the late Steve Jobs are also people who could have been life coaches if they didn’t already have successful products.
My guess is that the most famous people alive in this world are also great life coaches and that’s the reason why they are more famous than people who have earned more than they have.
To get ahead of the portfolio management game, I’ll have to reposition myself as a motivating person. I can stop at motivating people to give me their money to invest but I probably should do more than that.
