The title of this book is a redirect. The fortune being referred to is not money. The fortune is a combination of experiences, events, learnings, insights, and of course, luck. The real forces behind creating one's fortune are the principles an individual or business lives by. Principles are the external, arbitrary forces that affect human affairs and bring us good or bad fortune. And by good fortune, that doesn’t imply there will not be challenges along the way; rather, good fortune is a series of experiences, not a destination. Some call it chance or luck. Good fortune is propelled positively or stifled negatively by the principles we strive to live by. We shape our fortune by our principles.
Living by principles and knowing who you really are (the best or worst parts), along with the hard and soft skills you have (or are willing to put in the time to master), are the basic ingredients for personal or business fortune. Principles can be practiced personally and professionally at work. Often folks have great personal principles, but fall short on them at work. Why? Is it fear? Is it work culture? Actually, it’s a mixture of both. This book shares the principles that transformed RealTruck as a business. Learn more at https://principlestofortune.com
