I've seen this before on TV. It's probably not what you want, but I just
saw it again on youtube. Maybe it's what I needed.

5 parts of one episode. Each part is about 8 minutes. Maybe watch it with
a meal(s) if you have nothing on TV to see.

Two people get lost in the Amazon rain forest.

A quote, I believe from the old bulldog Winston Churchill;
Success is the ability to move from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm.

I used to laugh at that but now I feel that its kinda like one of the secrets of life.

When an archer is shooting for nothing . . . he has all his skill.
If he shoots for a brass buckle . . . he is already nervous.
If he shoots for a prize of gold . . . he goes blind;
or sees two targets . . . he is out of his mind!
His skill has not changed. But the prize . . . divides him. He cares.
He thinks more of winning than of shooting . . .
and the need to win drains him of power.
– Chuang Tzu, 400 B.C..

Some things never changed, for everything else there is MC.

“Excellence is never an accident. It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, and intelligent execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives - choice, not chance, determines your destiny.”
― Aristotle

"A gem cannot be polished without friction, nor a man perfected without trials."
― Lucius Annaeus Seneca

“I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”
- Michael Jordan

"Success is the ability to go from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm."
- Sir Winston Churchill

" I think and think for months and years. Ninety-nine times, the conclusion is false. The hundredth time I am right."

"never let the body tell the mind what to do."

in context
"Now if you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired morning, noon, and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired. When you were younger the mind could make you dance all night, and the body was never tired...You've always got to make the mind take over and keep going."
General Patton

These are some of the quotes I have stuck on my wall;



“If I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.”
- Gandhi

“I fear not the man who has practised 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practised one kick 10,000 times.”
- Bruce Lee

And so you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further. With your mind power, your determination, your instinct, and the experience as well, you can fly very high.
- Ayrton Senna

“It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.”
- E. E. Cummings

“The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you choose, what you think and what you do is who you become.”
- Heraclitus

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
---- Albert Einstein

He who hesitates is poor.
--- Mel Brooks

To risk nothing, is to risk everything.
--- Plato

The quotes above are written into my trading journal. And Einstein's photo is in front of me below my trading monitors.

"I have often wondered how it is that every man loves himself more than all the rest of men, but yet sets less value on his own opinion of himself than on the opinion of others.”

“You have power over your mind - not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.”

The quotes were taken from the book Meditations written by Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius.

"Seek not to follow in the footsteps of men of old; seek what they sought." - Matsuo Basho

“Never give in. Never, never, never, never—in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in, except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force. Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.” - Winston Churchill

"Talent hits a target no one else can hit. Genius hits a target no one else can see.” - Arthur Schopenhauer

My all-time favorite quote:

"Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now."

--William Hutchinson Murray, The Scottish Himalayan Expedition

[note that the last two lines are said to be from Goethe]
