Even with all the coked up sex I get every night, and all the hundred dollar bills raining on me daily, what still keeps me going at this tender age of.... 32? Simple - success.
I have hit my number, I literally can live off of selling options weekly or selling covered calls. But why do I still stick around? Because it's a rush for me. It's the closest I can get to an adrenalin rush daily - seeing how my trade strategies play out. People then say, "oh you have gambling tendencies". I don't. When you're at a casino, it's an All or Nothing play. When you are trading, it's All or something play.
But let's really tackle this for everyone else. What keeps you going? What keeps anyone going? Family? Kids? Love? Money? There is always a driver - an inspiration to continue to achieve our goals. When you are in trading, you have to find that drive and hang on to it. It is an addiction. I know because I am addicted. I cannot go an hour without checking the markets.
Even though I don't need to trade every day, every week or even every month - I do it because it's fun. I do it because it's always new every day. I do it because it's exciting - it is not monotonous like a normal 9 to 5 job sitting in a 6 x 6 cubicle in an office.
Not everybody is cut out to be a trader. But, every trader is cut out to be profitable. You have to find the fuego within you.
