Welcome to the Jungle....

This is a short inspirational piece given to my son and his teammates after the final cuts for the Football team last year. I think it is quite a good piece. The boys were broken down by long, exhausting practices and a few seemed discouraged. But this piece really summed up what was done and why.

Every Morning in Africa, a Gazelle wakes up. It knows that it must run faster then the fastest lion or it will be killed.
Every Morning, a lion wakes up and knows it must outrun the slowest Gazelle or it will starve to death.
It really doesn't matter if you are the Lion or the Gazelle....

When the sun comes up you better be ready to RUN !!!

During this year, we will sometimes be the lion and sometimes the gazelle. Everyday, we work you hard so that in any scenario, we WILL be successful. Sometimes we will be able to use our strength and skill to overpower our opponents like a lion. However, sometimes we will have to rely on our speed and elusiveness against a stronger opponent. WE MUST BE READY? So, when you are exhausted and your body is aching from hard practices, keep in mind why we are working you hard.


This is definitely how it is in the "Real World" and in Trading. Someday's you need to change your style to survive the markets. Remember the goal is to stay in the game. It is great to be correct, but if you have run out of capital and cannot trade on your idea what good does it do. I call this the ability to "Live to fight another Day". Hard work, preparation and discipline are the key to enabling that to happen. "The Plan", which we have talked about before, is the key to all this.

Good Luck and Good Currency Trading.
