Life is a journey, sprinkled with dreams, filled with courage, and expressed in action. – Tanadi Santoso
Most people I know can be divide into two groups. The first is a group that love to complain for whatever they find. The second is a group that love to dream. The similarity from both : nothing change on their life. They do the same pattern everyday. The way they think is the same. How can you expect a different event if you’re using the same formula over and over again?
A few of them want to learn new stuff. The problem is, they don’t implement their new knowledge. So when I talk to this people, I always find new interesting topics that are useful for me. It become useful because I learn deeper and act to make it real.
Same with trading. When friends or family know I do trading, they start to talk how risky is trading and they have lists of people who lose money in trading. Before, I try to give them the right perspective. But, by the time, I just smile to them and make them feel right on their opinion. Why? Because in trading, I need to meet people that can trade or have interest in trading. I don’t waste my time and energy to talk to ‘deaf’ (psychologically deaf).
Few from my friends have the same interest in money and we talk about money and investment. Also sharing opportunity that we could work on. Still, in trading they don’t ‘jump into the pool’. They follow the news, do practice trading, but don’t have real account. In order to make your dream come true, you need knowledge follow with act to make it real. You need both.
Like Tanadi wrote, : you need courage and express it in action. Most of people I know are afraid to make mistake and don’t have courage to responsible for their act. So they stay in their comfort zone. The problem is, world changes. And lately the changes is crushing economy growth. Require advance skill to survive in the next economy turbulence. For me, as long I can fix my mistake, I’ll imply new skill in order to make my dream come true.
