The Adventures of Farmer Pete


We all have limited time, both in each day and on this earth.

What is holding you back from both thinking big and accomplishing audacious goals? What are you willing to give up in order to achieve your life purpose? What is so sacred that you cannot sacrifice it without losing part of yourself?

Ray Dalio put it well when he said:

I learned that if you work hard and creatively, you can have just about anything you want, but not everything you want. Maturity is the ability to reject good alternatives in order to pursue even better ones.


I recently read through Your Next Five Moves by Patrick Bet-David. One of the things that stood out after reading through this book five times is that every person needs to find their own path to success and that there are many different paths we can take. As Patrick said:

Wealth and success are not waiting for most of us at the top of anyone else's ladder. A richer life—financially, emotionally, and intellectually—is possible only when you take responsibility for your own success.
