The Zurich Axioms are ways to take calculated threats in financial investments that pay off every time. This second Axiom is on a little characteristic all of us possess: greed.
Let’s get this first part out of the way: while you may want to believe that individuals are essentially “good-hearted,” “generous,” and “generous,” we all understand from experience that’s not constantly true.
The only thing we can understand about people is that we’re all self-centered bastards. Our very first impulse is to look out for number one. This Darwinian instinct for self-preservation isn’t the only thing we act on,obviously. However,all of us have that impulse for greed. And often,it’s tough to eliminate.
When we get it into our heads that the very best thing for us is getting increasingly more wealth,to hell with the rest,then we’re self-defeating.
Ends up,being greedy is bad for us. It’s also a huge hinderance to our monetary success. Greed can make us overreach. Eventually,greed clouds our judgement,specifically when it concerns investing.
The primary step to conquering our greedy instincts is being conscious of them.
According to our friend,Max Gunther,the developer of the Zurich Axioms,the important thing to keep in mind about greed is that it often pushes us to take dumb dangers. His service?
