The Man In the Mirror Is Not Where Most Investors Look

“It starts with the person in the mirror. I often say that the best investment you’ll ever make is an investment in yourself. But you can’t do that if you’re constantly looking to push accountability off on someone else…”


One thought on “The Man In the Mirror Is Not Where Most Investors Look

  1. Reminds me of a Brilliant poem I read everyday before the trading day commences 🙂 
    The Man In The Glass
    Peter “Dale” Winbrow Sr
    “When you get what you want in your struggle for selfAnd the world makes you king for a day,Just go to the mirror and look at yourselfAnd see what that man has to say.For it isn’t your father or mother or wifeWhose judgment upon you must pass.The fellow whose verdict counts most in you lifeIs the one staring back from the glass.You may be like Jack Horner and chisel a plumAnd think you’re a wonderful guy.But the man in the glass says you’re only a bumIf you can’t look him straight in the eye.He’s the fellow to please-never mind all the rest,For he’s with you clear to the end.And you’ve passed your most dangerous, difficult testIf the man in the glass is your friend.You may fool the whole world down the pathway of yearsAnd get pats on the back as you pass.But your final reward will be heartache and tearsIf you’ve cheated the man in the glass”
