EVEN in TRADING, passion is the ONLY to reach the top of the mountain. Once there, you’ll realize that the journey HAS JUST BEGUN. There is no TOP.
I firmly believe that trader(s) who don’t have a VERY incredible balance in their life are prone to get a poor clarity of mind in the long run. Stimulant(s) only work for a couple of years and wear you out.
3 areas in your life stand out to last decade(s) as a trader:
1/ Get a top notch health is one of the most precious value you can have as a trader. People have no clue whatsoever what true health is about. To give you an idea:
Being able to do 2/3 hours moderate workout a day without ANY pain and feeling the bliss when watching a sunrise. Otherwise, what is the point?
A peak state during 17 hours a day.
No need for stimulant(s) (coffee, alcohol, drugs, craving for food(s).. you name it). Nature brings a wonderful strength in your life when you know what to look for.
2/ A long term relationship with deep foundation(s). Trader(s) overlook the crucial importance of not living like a lone wolf. It drives you nuts and create imbalance in your life
3/ TRADING is an IKIGAI. Or do something else because there are zillions of way to enjoy life if your solely goal is to earn a living and trade as little as possible. The more I trade, the more I feel deep satisfaction in my life.
