Wake Up Call

Sometimes it takes a tragedy to wake us up. We pause for a second and become aware of our mortality. What if we’re not around tomorrow? Have we really fulfilled our potential? Have we made the most of the time we have?

As Hurricane Sandy inflicts damage on the East Coast and lives are lost, take some time to think about your life. Are you living up to your potential? Are you growing and evolving as human being? Are you making your dreams a reality?

The beautiful thing about trading is that it’s not only a way to make a lot of money, it’s a way to master yourself and grow as a person. It takes dedication and effort, and yet what better use of our time can we make than that of realizing our full potential?

But a word of advice from personal experience. Don’t make it about empty striving. Make it about gratitude. Be thankful for what you have and with that attitude approach your dreams and ambitions. Then you’ll be realizing the potential that’s already there… instead of chasing external things that you think will make you happy. And that applies equally to life, as well as trading.

To all those people on the East Coast, our thoughts are with you.
