    While he was correct that Mexico did default on its debt, the crisis he predicted never happened. The stocks and businesses soared. Because Dalio had placed his financial bets according to his prediction, he lost all of the money he had worked hard for. He even had to fire every one of the employees he worked with them. From this biggest failure, Dalio learned that it is not wise to be guided by emotions but by rational thinking. The tragedy of the lives of most peoples is that they should hold on so desperately to their personal opinions that it becomes impossible for them to see reality.
