Whatever it is that is set in your heart and mind to do, it will take more than you think it will to accomplish it.


One of the greatest lessons I have learned is that things like money, recognition, the desire to “be some body”, they only last for a little while as motivation. They fade because they are not important. They are by-products of determination to accomplish whatever it is you set out to accomplish. Sometimes I run across things that challenge me and force me to that place of adversity, that place where I must make a decision. This video did just that today. It made me aware of attitudes and perceptions that really needed to change.

Basically, it challenged me with this question: What do I want? What do I really want?

That question is only answered one way, through my actions. Am I getting up early and doing my back testing? Am I taking every trade I can and analyzing my risk properly? Am I placing trading at the level of importance in my life through action that I do with my words?

Or am I sadly letting the current of least resistance guide my life?

The video I have attached is a football themed video. Some will relate to it and some won’t but it is an unrepentant representation of what it takes to just…accomplish

Trading will either demolish the mediocrity in your life or it will magnify it, as will many many other things. The current of least resistance has the potential to sweep me past trading and onto a dream that was not mine to begin with…

Trading Life:Own It


One thought on “Determination

  1. Loved this video Shonn! It really hits home. Loved the quote, “If you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you’ll be successful!” That sums it up! (Just started going through your blog starting with your first post.)
