“Continuous effort – not strength or intelligence – is the key to unlocking our potential.” -Winston Churchill
We all have goals and ambitions, some bigger than others. It is always good to take a moment and focus on the direction we are headed. With the excitement that is to come in the following weeks it is best to take a Saturday and remember why we do what we do. Maybe you get up at 5 A.M. for your family, for yourself, for your love of trading. Remember why you do what you do, what your long term goals are, and this will ensure that the next challenge that arises you will take in stride. Ensure that you are putting out “continuous effort” and this will guarantee that you are on the path to accomplish your goals. Success is not an overnight event, it is an effect that has many causes from a wide range of times and avenues (as the best traders know, the best trade is not a one day 10 % win but rather that 6 month 100% return) . Take today to clear your head, put that to do list aside, and prepare to conquer your long term goals.
