What follows are the lessons I’ve learned about investing from studying Tony Robbin’s book Unshakeable. All credit goes to Tony and I recommend you all go out and get a copy.

I’m studying this because investing is part of my plan for success. I’m sharing it to help those who were like me; people who dream of achieving great success but are unaware or too scared to risk seeking the financial rewards of investing.

My goal is to become unshakeable and to achieve the level of confidence that will allow me to be master of my financial, physical and emotional life.

The road to becoming a success is pathed with anxious moments.

To be successful you need to deal with risk. You need to risk your money to investments. Or you have to take chances on business deals. You will also most likely risk standing out from those around you and risk your lifestyle by putting in more and more time into the things that you hope will pay off.

The only way to be ready for the stress that comes with these huge risks and to stay on the right path to success, is to become unshakeable.

The book focuses on stock investing. And as a key part of my plan to achieve success is investing, (and it probably should be for you too), it’s an extremely valuable concept to learn.

However, while the book is mostly concerned with stock market investing, the concept of being unshakeable is applicable to all areas of life.

Being unshakeable basically means having the strength not to give into fear.

It means having the knowledge to act with reason, even when you are dealing with risky situations.

Unshakeable means having the faith and vision to persevere with your goals and not to be stopped by failure of halted by fear.

Read on to see how to become successful by becoming unshakeable.

Four Things I Learned from my Latest Failure

 

It’s coming on a year since I started on my journey to achieve success. It’s been a big and challenging year. While I’ve made a lot of great progress, I have to admit I’ve had two big failures.

My first failure I’ve written about before. My wife and I first started our journey to achieving financial freedom by investing. At the start we didn’t know what we were doing and it cost us. However, we learned from our mistakes and we learned from the experience. Now we are back in the game and doing much better.

Our second venture towards this goal was to start a part time business; a part time hustle to compliment my job, free up my wife and build a passive revenue stream.

Again, I didn’t really know what I was doing. It fell apart after just 4 months. However, I know this is another important piece in my plan for success. So I’ve decided again to learn from my lessons and get back to it and do it right next time.

This seems to be a trend. The path to success, so far, runs along the lines of: try, fail, learn, try again. But I’m warmed by the lessons of others:

“Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.” – Robert F. Kennedy

In the search of great success, failures are inevitable. No one can win all the time. The trick is not to never fail, it’s to face failure and overcome.

So here are the major lessons I’ve learned from my latest failure.
