Ray Dalio: Go to the pain

“I think curiosity and character are the two most important attributes to have. I’m not sure how to best build curiosity in people, but I’d say the habit of asking a lot of questions like ‘why’ in order to make sense of things is good. As for character, the most important habit is to go to the pain because it will strengthen you which will give you the power you need to be successful. Pain + Reflection = Progress. With practice the pain won’t be as painful and you will begin to see the pleasures of the successes so that going to the pain will make you feel good rather than bad.”

—Ray Dalio.
