Say to your deepest fear: ” give me your best shot”

Want a BRAND NEW LIFE? Get rid of your fear(s) first!

As a trader, i recently discovered that fear in you greatest foe. Ditto in life.

I got rid of everything in my life that were nurturing my daily fears.
People, stuffs, and ultimately my own desires.The process was hard, tiring, an uphill battle. September 2015: i finally pulled it off.

I am free. As never before. I wish you can feel the same emotion at one point in your life. This freedom is so elating, so exciting. I can barely sleep at night.

Do you think my life in perfect thereby? Far from it!
Look at the picture. You see the crater? That’s my life now! I’m starting off from scratch. I don’t care how long it will take to rebuild everything. Because i enjoy every bit of every second i breathe. My core values are clear.

During 2012-2015, here are the lessons learned:

If you want a “second chance”, a new life, you will have to clean out your life first.Thoroughly.From A to Z. I would have no chance to find out my IKIGAI without wiping out fear(s) in my previous life. Then you start to rebuild. From scratch. At that point, record your life. Every moment deserves to be remembered. The good, the bad, the ugly = lesson learned. Because the JOURNEY is your life. There is no DESTINATION.

Goals,outcomes, desires are a byproduct of your journey. Nothing else. At the end of your life, the outcome(s)do not really matter much. Only the journey matters. A lot.  That’s the reason you should NEVER NEVER  pursue a path for the money only. Find out your IKIGAI first. Money will follow.

I learned it the hard way. Hope it will help you to emulate.

Calculator HP12C platinum is a terrific tool

I got a financial calculator. As a trader, you don’t need the exact hp 12c . Portfolio manager, analyst  are the main clients for that kind of tool.

I am very open minded. So , 10 years from now,  I may evolve as a portfolio manager in a new kind of Hedge Fund. In 2025, many paradigms will have changed in the hedge fund world.

I have got the calculator to get used with it. I like especially the HP  reverse polish notation RPN. I use to work  with the older brother HP 48S.

This is a great calculator. It’s a daily pleasure to use. Especially the  PV / PMT / FV / CHS function. Finally, this is a very beautiful calculator!

Tony Robbins’ breakthrough

from-the-seminar-2014-upw-london--tony-rocks-daily-incantation-helps-me-to-achieve-my-daily-quarterly--annually-goals-hope-it-helps-tonyrobbins-incantations-tradermindset-beliefsystem-upw2014_22062036966_o

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tony Robbins’event UPW in 2014 (London). During 4 terrific days, my most inner beliefs and paradigm about what life means, had been changed very deeply. I set up a number of NLP’s tools in my daily life.

Later, i got a very profound interest about financial markets. Again.

I was flabbergasted when i understood how mindset & beliefs were a key factor to trade successfully.

90% mindset 10 % technical.

I made up a powerful strategy to create the right kind of mindset to become the BEST VERSION of myself as a trader. My  Goals are now broken down :

Daily

10 days

Quaterly

Yearly

5 years

10 years

20 years

Lifetime goal

The day you want to reach your goal as much as you want to breathe, the whole game shifts. Forever.

I watched Wall STREET WARRIORS seasons in september 2015. An eye-opening to grasp the role of various protagonists in the financial markets (Wall street)

Brokerage firm
Day Trader
Equity private company
Trader
Hedge fund manager
Deal maker
Analyst
Floor Trader

Straight to the point. While i was watching the whole seasons, i could grasp the inner feelings of living wall street lifestyle. This lifestyle is NOT for everybody. If you know yourself, this way of life may turn into the greatest undertaking you will ever achieved.
