“Do what you’re passionate about. If you do this, there will be few people competing or running faster than you.”
He studied under Benjamin Graham.
He is commonly reckoned as a legendary investor over the globe.
He is considered the best investor ever.
Warren Buffett isn’t to introduce anymore.
He extended the practice of picking stocks and investing long term, applying value investing principles coupled with shrewd management skills, ending up building an empire of wonderful businesses: Berkshire Hathaway.
Tens of books have been written about him, and so many great quotes are flashing the mind of thousands of investors every day.
Yet, the quote I’ve chosen to enlighten here on this page doesn’t relate to his investment skills.
It’s about PASSION!
Warren Buffett is a guy that “tapdances” while going to work every day.
I don’t know much people like him.
Think about it.
He started investing when he was 12, filled his first tax report at 13, read the original “The Intelligent Investor” written by Benjamin Graham.
The original book! While he was a teenager.
That’s an accomplishment. You got to admit.
You have to be focused on something that requires your whole body and mind to dedicate yourself to such discipline and learning. And he said it was a pleasure.
I do believe he loved it!
Capital allocation, investing and making money is just his thing. And he never went another way in his life.
I think that’s the best advice anyone should take from Warren Buffett, apart from his wise investing principles that don’t lack over the Internet.
He found his passion and lived for it.
Dedicate yourself to it.
No matter what.
And you’re off a wonderful journey of success.
Here’s a video that gives you a better eye towards his philanthropy, investment accomplishments and legacy, or the man himself, as he is. Simple and humble!
