another one that just happened.

One of my child hood friends who I've know for 20+ years just called and asked if i wanted a job laying concrete since im doing nothing but sitting on my ass(this is word for word). At first i wanted to jump through the phone and beat his ass like it never has been beaten before but that really got me thinking about a handful of things in life.

1) we value what others think about us to much, one of the reason i disliked my last job so much was that i got to the point that it became who i was and it felt good to tell people what i do and rant on about shit most people don't know about, but in reality we shouldn't let ourselves be defined by "what we do". Don't get me wrong i love trading but trading is not me and i need to make sure that this doesn't turn into the way of wearing my "job" on my sleeve

2) this is one of the hardest things in the world to do, I don't know any other profession where 95% fail and of that 5% really only 2% make it big big ( not big big yet but soon)

3)fuck the haters
