Naval Ravikant on Why You Must Save Yourself

Welcome to Make Daily! This email contains an idea, reflection, and a simple action you can take to improve your life today.

Idea 💡

"Doctors won’t make you healthy. Nutritionists won’t make you slim. Teachers won’t make you smart. Gurus won’t make you calm. Mentors won’t make you rich. Trainers won’t make you fit. Ultimately, you have to take responsibility. Save yourself."

— Naval Ravikant

Reflection 🤔

It's empowering to know that the only person stopping you is you. (Share)

"No one is coming to save you."

I first heard these words as a child and they've haunted me ever since. The truth of this statement is both terrifying and liberating.

In one hand it sucks that no one is going to come rescue you and make your life easy... but in the other, it's empowering to know that the only person stopping you is you.

Action ✅

Wake up and take action for yourself today.

Creator Fact 👤

Naval Ravikant is the founder of Angellist as well as a highly successful venture capitalist. His story didn't start so easy though...

Naval immigrated to the United States when he was nine years old, and was raised by a single mother in New York City. He credits much of his success to the example she set.

“My mother uniquely provided, against the background of hardship, unconditional and unfailing love. If you have nothing in your life, but you have at least one person that loves you unconditionally, it’ll do wonders for your self-esteem.”
