There are times in life when things just don’t go your way.
Times when outta nowhere, for no good reason at all …life just decides to “up’n crack you one” right in the face. Commonly, these “times” ride the coat tails of equally “good times” – ultimately doubling their surprise, and significantly magnifying their effect.
Well I’ve had tremendous success in the markets today…..but have failed miserably elsewhere. Unfortunately – I’ve allowed my emotions to get the better of me, I’ve let my discipline slide and I’ve made a costly mistake. I’ve hurt one of those closest to me, and just when I thought everything in life was going great – BAM! – one of those “times”.
You don’t expect it.You dont see it coming but when it does……Ouch.
A lesson in this? I dunno – I guess this being “Thanksgiving” for those of you in the United States, maybe a good dose of respect and appreciation for those you love – and thanks for all they’ve done for you. And for all you traders – putting things in perspective, likely the same……
Respect mother market…and appreciate what she’s given you.
