Success in Life and Investing
To be successful in life and investing...you must maintain your character and resolve. Don't turtle everytime things don't go your way. Don't change your identity and pretend to start over....it is still you and you can't runaway from yourself in life.
Don't quit just becuase you are not happy with the result. As yourself why you failed and learn from it.....it will serve you make you much stronger and better prepared for the future. Find opportunities and take advantage of them. There will be periods when opportunities flood in at you and other times when it seems like a drought.
Be persistent during dry times.....the tide will turn in your favor. But don't lose your character....in the process you will lose yourself....and in the end what is success if you are not you.
But most of all...when you score a touchdown...don't jump up and down scraming and shouting like a monkey....pretend you have been there before.....and be confident you will be there again.
If you stay focused, maintain calm, and set attainable goals....the likelihood and flavor of success is much greater if you keep character along the way. Otherwise you are simply a zoo animal for people to laugh at as you travel along the path of life and investing.
