    I like reading motivational quotes every morning to get me in the right mindset. Here are a few of my favorites:

    "He who overcomes others has force; he who overcomes himself is strong."...Lao Tzu

    "Always dream and shoot higher than you know you can do. Don't bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself."...William Faulkner

    "Time is limited, so I better wake up every morning fresh and know that I have just one chance to live this particular day right, and to string my days together into a life of action and purpose."

    "Pain is temporary. Quitting lasts forever."

    Lance Armstrong

    "Go at life every day with passion and enthusiasm... and when challenges arrive, simply do not give up."...Rick Wagoner

    "There's only one way to succeed in anything, and that is to give it everything."...Vince Lombardi

    Share yours.

    FYI - a good source of quotes is this blog...they update it a few times a week so just add it to your feed.

    You can go back and see a few year's worth too.

    Related to trading - the way I see it:

    Pick challenges big enough to matter,
    Small enough to win
    Jonathan Kozol

    Opportunity is a bird that never perches
    Claude McDonald

    "Most people have the will to win, few have the will to prepare to win." Bobby Knight -

    "It's not the strongest species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change" -- Darwin.

    Best trading,

  9. "In the time of chimpanzees I was a monkey" -- Beck

  10. Darwin was an idiot and racist, but Bobby Knight hit it right on the head. Like us wanting to be in shape but unwilling to invest the two hours per day needed to make that change.
