Unshakeable | Winston’s Words of Wisdom
Another week flies by and another week of quite chaotic news and economic activity. It’s hard to know which way to turn sometimes, but being a dog, I simplify things.
The highlight of my day is often chasing Squirrels out of the garden, or playing with other dogs round in park. But when I am tired of that, that is when I reflect on things and often turn to a good book. As I am starting to grow up in dog years now (I’m about 20 in comparable human years), I am starting to think more about the future and what to do with my money, but if you turn on the news, you just have no idea what to do.
That brings me nicely to my book recommendation this week, which is Unshakeable by Tony Robbins.
Mr Robbins is best known for bouncing around stages across the world getting people (mainly American’s it must be said) in a state of almost frenzied excitement, that is if he isn’t getting them to walk across fire.
It all seems a bit bonkers to me. But in any event, he must be very good at it as he has the GDP of a small nation these days by all accounts.
So his focus more recently has been how to invest wisely for the long term.
Due to him being so good at bouncing around on a stage, he has access to some of the greatest investment minds in the world, like Warren Buffett & Ray Dalio (two of the richest people in the world, both self-made, as is Tony in fairness, which is interesting).
So he met with them, shared his experiences and also their pearls of wisdom. I must admit, this was so much better than I thought it would be. Tony Robbins is deeply passionate about helping people improve their lives, which comes across in the Unshakeable book. Some great advice, and even better strategies for making and creating wealth. It’s been said many times before but it doesn’t matter how much you earn, its how much you save that counts.
As things are so chaotic at the moment, this is a very timely reminder of pulling back, looking at the long term and not getting bogged down in the day to day nonsense of life. Which seems to go from the bizarre to the ridiculous these days.
I saw in the news that Iceland sent a Chicken Nugget into Space, but now a Scouser can’t enter Wales. You guys are so weird… Hopefully this book buys you a bit of sanity and perspective!
An extract from the Goodreads website on Unshakeable: Your Financial Freedom Playbook
Market corrections are as constant as seasons are in nature. There have been 30 such corrections in the past 30 years, yet there’s never been an action plan for how not only to survive, but thrive through each change in the stock market.
Building upon the principles in Money: Master the Game, Robbins offers the reader specific steps they can implement to protect their investments while maximizing their wealth. It’s a detailed guide designed for investors, articulated in the common-sense, practical manner that the millions of loyal Robbins fans and students have come to expect and rely upon.
Few have navigated the turbulence of the stock market as adeptly and successfully as Tony Robbins. His proven, consistent success over decades makes him singularly qualified to help investors (both seasoned and first-timers alike) preserve and add to their investments.
