Pain + Reflection = Progress
The Mission Newsletter, 11/7/18
“Find a place inside where there’s joy, and the joy will burn out the pain.” -Joseph Campbell
“Contrary to popular belief, there are fundamental laws that determine much of your life: your performance, energy, relationships, health, and success.
If you follow these laws, odds are you’ll naturally achieve success, even attract it.
But if you break these laws, it’s very likely you’ll end up broken, empty, and unfulfilled — even if you do manage to achieve your goals.”
“Self-reflectiveness is the quality that most differentiates those who evolve quickly from those who don’t. Remember: Pain + Reflection = Progress.” -Ray Dalio
“This is the story of a woman who was faced with a terrifying choice. She left the safe confines of her family’s home to enter the unknown, and embarked on the greatest challenge of her life.”
