In athletics and in life some people rise to the top of their game. They become champions at what they do. Both Bridgewater hedge fund founder, Ray Dalio, and NBA coach, to the Chicago Bulls and the LA Lakers, Phil Jackson are two such people. Dalio credits a 40 year practice of Transcendental meditation as foundational for his success. Phil Jackson, once known as "bones", discusses in his memoirs, Sacred Hoops: Spiritual Lessons of a HardWood Warrior, and Eleven Rings: The Soul of Success, how meditation enables him to be a clear thinker. Both men have learned to master their emotions in service to just action. Over the long haul, they have accumulated track records of success, which stand the test of time.
