“If you can tell me who your heroes are, I can tell you how you’re going to turn out in life.”
– Warren Buffett, American businessman, investor and philanthropist
While doing a bit of research on Buffett’s interesting upbringing and career, I learned that he was highly influenced by a prominent investor of his time, named Ben Graham.
Ben is noted for creating the concept of intrinsic business value – which, at the time, was a fundamental alternative to the value of a company’s stock price.
As one of the world’s richest men, Buffett obviously was inspired by his hero to follow his teachings.
Who are your heroes? What values, behaviors, and wisdom do they possess that would cause you to model your own life after them?
Consider the idea that you are someone’s hero. How will you continue your own growth journey to be the kind of person worth following?
