I felt my body just withering away today, while starting at my screen, watching tick fluctuations gyrate back and forth throughout the day. Sometimes I question why I do this shit, why stare at my screen for hours watching green and red bars? Then, I remembered, we do this shit to bank coin.
This isn’t about a pissing contest, this isn’t about selling subscriptions, this is about making money. I remember getting into this game, the stock game, I was looking for a side hustle. I wanted to supplement my income with another revenue stream. Funny thing happened after that, I became addicted.
Truth be told I’m still an addict. I spend countless hours a night going through screens, charts, and lately, thanks to Exodus, more financials. I give up time with my family, time with my businesses, and even sacrifice my health at times for mother market. And, you know what, I still love every minute of it.
When you have passion for something, it makes everything easier. I’m reminded of a quote that says, “Find what you love to do, and you’ll never work a day in your life.”
Nothing in life, worth a damn anyway, is easy. If someone told you trading would be easy, they lied to you. Without passion, there is no way you will have longevity in the game. It’s a grind. It took me years to become profitable as a trader.
On the day, I did nothing, but still had a better day than most of you. And, the reason for that is because I love what I do. If you find yourself fed up, trading stocks day in and day out, moping around in misery, STOP. Go do something else. Find what gives you passion to be great. That my friends is the key to happiness.
