Is this a picture of your trading life?
What causes a rational being to live this way? What causes a person to beat the living hell out of themselves trying to find a result that they simply need to let find them? Trading should come to us. When your system sets up, you know it. That is the time to put in effort. Not checking the charts every 20 minutes as a nervous tick.
I used to spend 70-80% of my time and energy pursuing trading while it could only produce a fraction of the income I need. Absurd but a true story. Why? Because I was more worried about what the opportunity meant than the actual opportunity itself. I was letting a real opportunity in my life pass by because it was just low hanging fruit. Wait. Did I just say that? Just low hanging fruit? We may choose to not eat low hanging fruit for a period of time for whatever reason, but then when its your last meal because you have been trying to grow really expensive fruit using sand and a stick… its all of a sudden the best fruit there is.
Robots are low hanging fruit. I have two up on the VPS. Why in the world would I not just let them run. They produce! They are the exact definition of low hanging fruit. They trade at all hours of the night so I don’t have to. They make decisions very easy, because I made all the decisions when I made the robot. Turn it on, then go do something else productive.
OPPORTUNITY IS LIKE THE FIELD, OR MAYBE IS THE FIELD, EITHER WAY IT IS AGNOSTIC. IT IS SIMPLY THERE FOR YOU TO DO OR NOT DO. IT DOESN’T CARE
Make sure that whatever you are doing today is properly planned out. Make sure that the time you are spending on trading or whatever it is that you are pursuing is time well spent and that you are giving it the proper place in your priorities. Trading has the ability to do so much with so little effort. Why complicate it?
Trade your system and when there is no setups, go do something else. Either work another job or do a hobby, or do something meaningful to you. But whatever you do, keep it in the proper perspective.
