The Street

The Street

You walk down the street.

There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.

You fall in.

You are lost and helpless, it's all your fault.

It takes forever to find a way out.

You walk down the same street.

There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.

You pretend you don't see it.

You fall in again.

You can’t believe your in the same place, but it's all your fault.

It still takes a long time to get out.

You walk down the same street.

There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.

You see it there.

You still fall in, it's a habit, but your eyes are open.

You know where you are and it's your fault.

You get out much quicker.

You walk down the same street.

There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.

You walk around it.

Next time you get to that street.

You fucking walk around it.

That is trading, walking down the streets that do not have huge holes in them, for some they avoid the holes the entire time, some fall in right off the bat. You do not need to be some genius to have or achieve trading success. You simply need to avoid the big ass holes in the sidewalk.


Trading is a simple recipe, focus on what is in front of you, put on great trades with risk reward that is always in your favor and try to avoid making the same mistake twice. That’s it, stop swinging at the 2:1 sliders and wait for the 5:1+ meatballs. Let that cash settle Ricky Bobby. The secret to winning any game lies in not trying too hard. Every wonder how that one friend of yours who makes good money, tends to win bets that you guys make? He doesn’t care about the money so he just plays.

There are times that we are off, in a slump for whatever excuse, maybe it's cloudy out or you haven't gotten lucky in a week. Most trying to press it here when it should be the opposite. Take a few days off, reset the mental capital and come back with a fresh mindset. Take comfort in this time off, there is a reason why I don't trade on vacation, I am on vacation to enjoy life. If some stock I was watching goes while I'm away, who gives a shit. Their will be 3,000 other stocks to buy when I am back from enjoying the beach or the mountains. Sometimes the answers are hidden in plain sight and a step back can set you up for the next leg up.

In the world of finance, nobody really knows anything, you have incredible freedom to continually reinvent yourself and forge new paths. No matter how strange you are (we all are) embrace your weird self. Just remember there is no right answer, only better questions.

  • Can you be a mentor to me? I have a vision. I believe in something and I want to manifest it. I don’t know all the ways to get into this point but I know that there is something that you know and that you know you can help me. There’s a possibility that you can teach me and others too. Maybe we can both become wealthy and you can show me what other people I could talk to you as well. What I believe is powerful, simple and will always sell. It starts be asking. Anyone who knocks the doors open, anybody who asks will get an answer and those who seek will give fine. So I’m starting with you.
