It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly … who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who have never known neither victory nor defeat.
– Teddy Roosevelt
Today’s video post parallels trading and life, using this week’s past blog discussion as Exhibits A through Z.
Some may wonder why I’ve purposely “taken the bait” this week in engaging what may seem like wasted time and energy – and I’m sure to the delight of the tiny minority who were hoping that just that thing would happen! The truth however, is that I’ve intentionally chosen to engage in the discussion to further illustrate how strength in markets – and life – are fueled.
As in the case with life, those who succeed in markets often do so because they understand, believe in, and align with the true move of substance … versus those who fight AGAINST the truth who unknowingly FUEL the trend - and in turn – success of others.
At times, life seems so ironic … yet with the perfect and just ending.
Have a wonderful weekend!
