Global Macro Trading is my true ikigai

Recently, I have discovered how much I was enamoured with this field in the trading world.  The journey is going to be very long, yet when you love what you do, you don’t work 1 single day of your life anymore.

The word “WORK” has no meaning once you have found the reason you wake up in the morning. This is a blissful experience.

The path to deconstruct-reconstruct new belief as a trader

20160723_144324

 

3 toughest steps to live a new life, a new paradigm shift.


1/ your intellect understands the new concept. Yet, your cognitive dissonance will show up and prevent you from changing anything in your life. You know it would be great, but you are not ready.

2/ your basic instinct demands change in your life. The trigger is either desperation or inspiration. Things MUST change at once. This step may take YEARS before triggered

3/ your emotional part loves the new paradigm shift while unfolding in your life. You know why you have been living a rollercoaster lifestyle to reach your goal. You feel great because you got out of your comfort zone. This step may also take YEARS before fulfilled.

 

  

See, if you are a trader, this process is straightforward yet not easy.

1/ you dont know what you dont know. Be a greater trader would be your dream yet, you have no clue how deep commitment is needed for years to come, even decades.

2/ you start off your journey and you understand in your gut how darn hard it os in real life. Either it is your ikigai and you have blast, or you quit 1/2 years later ( it was not your ikigai)

3/ you have worked your ass off for a decade. Now you understand that it was just THE BEGINNING OF YOUR JOURNEY. You ha ve a blast because its not a job, a career but your CALLING. Money is the least of your preoccupation yet, you are likely to earn a fortune during your lifetime as a trader.

 

 

 

Life is about your CALLING , measure your success by how much you love what you do. Not how much people like you. It is paramount to your happiness in life.


At the end, the more you get out of life, the more you are bound to give. This is what true happiness is about.

I was blessed to find out my calling. Trading is my thing. Yet i have a very balanced life in my private life to offset the life as a trader.
