Paul Tudor Jones on Failure

One of the perks of being a billionaire, and legendary, hedge fund manager is that people pay very close attention to what you say.

Such is the case of Paul Tudor Jones whose address to the graduating class of 9th graders at a New York private school has attracted considerable internet traffic.

What does Jones consider to be the secret to his success? Nothing other than knowing how to deal with failure, with major failure, with emotionally crippling failure, and with the shame that comes with it.

I have posted on this topic before, and am happy to offer a link to the text of Jones's speech. Link here.
