It takes time to make it big. Two to three decades of hard work.
I have learned an invaluable lesson this week. If I don’t fully enjoy the journey, there is NOTHING that brings happiness once the outcome is reached. Happiness IS in the journey.
Indeed, pain, sweat, elation, tears , growth are the hallmark of a great journey. Peak and Trough within a lifetime account for 100% of this human experience.
Still working to be the best version of myself with these 3 potent processes. I can feel how powerful they are when 100% applied.
Every 3 days, I analyze my actions. And the goal is to do better the next 3 days in 2 core areas. HEALTH and TRADING.
The speed of progress is mind-blowing.
Most people try to make do with a bad model in their life.
Whether it’s about business, health, or relationship. Deconstruct what you have learned and re-construct a new model about
Business/Ikigai/Calling: your limit is in YOUR BELIEF
Health and Mindfulness : go deep to understand the amazing truth behind it
Relationship: your soulmate is on your path if you listen to your intuition.
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.
Every day 3 days, I setup goals for 3 areas
For each areas, I setup 3 most important task(s).
Done. My life is that simple. I do that 15-16 hours per day. Nothing else. At any given time, I may work more one of them per 3 days-period. It depends on what need to be done.
Years before you can achieve anything meaningful, you have to create a vivid imagination of the world you want to live in.
VIVID = feel, behave, live AS IF what you want has already been true.
This is so powerful I think it’s worth pondering how to apply it in your daily life.
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.
