Warren Buffett is one of the richest men in the world. However, by his own confession, he isn't one of the smartest men in the world. 

Buffett has made billions investing in the stock market and building his conglomerate empire, Berkshire Hathaway -- but these incredible results are a result of a consistent system (and luck) rather than genius brains alone.

Almost no investment isn't affected by some element of luck -- both good and bad luck. Warren Buffett realizes this and does everything in his power to minimize the impact of this luck.
