Entitlement Versus Gratitude

Mental Game of Trading ·
Featuring Dr. Gio Valiante

Published on: September 24th, 2019 • Duration: 6 minutes

Dr. Gio Valiante, head performance coach at Point72 Asset Management, recognizes that success can lead to a dangerous dynamic whereby entitlement outshines gratitude. In this piece, Valiante provides an anecdote demonstrating how far the pendulum can swing in the wrong direction, and explains the importance of managing this dynamic.

    Be grateful you can breathe clean air, eat well, think, and afford an RV subscription. Do you realize what a privileged position that in and of itself is? If not, try spending a few minutes underwater with no oxygen tank. ;-)

    In my coaching work with clients I explore 4 core motivational areas: love, humility, fear and pride. It's incredible how much someone's performance in both life and work can improve when they reflect on the behaviours emanating from these. Great content, thank you.

    Humility is a topic that only a man of Dr. Valiante’s caliber would mention in the context of Finance. Brilliant. One of the most important and profoundly misunderstood and underestimated qualities in all areas of human endeavour.

    this dude is gold... i really hope we get (at some point) a 60+ min video, having 5 min chunks is somewhat frustrating.

      Amen absolutely. Dr. Valiante is just fantastic - deep lessons for everyone in Finance. I have learned these lessons through adversity in other areas of life.
