Certain topics you have heard or read about before.

However great writers have the ability to take the same topic and reposition it in a way that you appreciate the topic again and even better.

For example, in his book, The Psychology of Money, one of the things Morgan Housel says is:

_________________________________________

“Be nicer and less flashy. No one is impressed with your possessions as much as you are. You might think you want a fancy car or a nice watch. But what you probably want is respect and admiration. And you’re more likely to gain those things through kindness and humility than horsepower and chrome.”

_________________________________________

To gain respect and admiration, being kind and humble can trump horsepower and chrome.

This hit hard.

Ps: Humility is not thinking less of yourself.
