Success As Teacher

For John, BLUFSuccess is not promised, it is earned.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

Success is a lousy teacher.  It seduces smart people into thinking they can’t lose.  And it’s an unreliable guide to the future.

This is pretty much what Mr Nassim Nicholas Taleb said in Fooled by Randomness:  The Hidden Role of Chance in Life and in the Markets.

True. However......nothing can beat EXPERIENCE.....for those who will take a moment and learn its lessons. Many engage in the same old processes and expect a different outcome. In fact, whole NATIONS do that very thing.
