Brazilian closed it down by reading an excerpt from a realvision.com interview that discussed a lot about what it means to be a HIM. It was an interview of Joe Duran a hedge fund manager who currently manages over 24 billion dollars:
“Interviewer: One of the things you’ve lived your life by is this saying, what if I’m wrong?
JD: Yeah… You know, it’s interesting, humility is something– I study a lot of philosophy and I read a lot, and humility is– we all have it, you know, it’s just whether we display it or not. We’re in an environment where, for many people, you look weak if you are vulnerable. And I’ve, in fact, I found it to be the exact opposite, that authenticity far, far trumps strength, that authenticity and truly understanding yourself is incredibly compelling to anyone. And being honest about who you are, even if what that is is not that appealing to people. You look at our president as an example. Regardless of your opinion of him, he’s the real deal. And that draws a lot of people who see that I might not like some of what I see, but I appreciate that it’s authentic.
Very few people understand the reason our politicians are, in general, so unpopular is how little authenticity there is. They might all say the right thing, but nobody believes that they believe it.
And so that is the one truth that I have found for myself. And questioning yourself, the humility you have, that person that you are at three in the morning when you wake up with sweaty palms, or when you’re tossing and turning about something your spouse said or something financial that’s concerning you, that person is also a part of your waking life.
We can pretend they don’t exist, all the insecurities and doubts and questions, but that person needs to be stared at, because that person, if you don’t come to comfort with who you are when you’re weak, and the things that you’re afraid of, those are the demons that are going to come and eat you alive.
They are what’s going to cause you to have a failed marriage. They’re going to be what causes you to make bad financial decisions. Which is why that question of what if I’m wrong is a question you always have to ask yourself, because if you don’t know your weaknesses, if you don’t know where the worst part of you comes out, the world will ensure that you get to places where that person is going to come out and bring out the very worst in you.”
T-Claps to Tater Tot for the donuts and coffee. Ponzi’s skinny ass even ate some of the fried bread.
