The Wolf of Wall Street - How The Story In Our Head Holds Us Back!

By Kris Deichler, Associate Partner, Lighthouse International

“The only thing standing between you and your goal is the b******t story you keep telling yourself as to why you can't achieve it.”

- Jordan Belfort (The Wolf of Wall Street)

If you've seen the movie 'The Wolf of Wall Street', you'll know the author of the above quote. Jordan Belfort was a stockbroker in the 1980’s and 90’s, who, after achieving incredible levels of wealth, eventually fell foul to his greed and ambition. He went to prison in 1999, after pleading guilty for fraud, and stock market related crimes. While we don't condone Mr Belfort mistakes, we can still learn from them and very often some of our greatest breakthroughs do indeed come from major mistakes. Being very focused on his goals, he wasn’t someone who would let convention and what other people told him isn't possible get in his way. So we mustn’t discount how wise his words are, because we can apply them to ourselves and our own goals in life.
