This is one I like:

"Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way round or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves.

Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water my friend."

From the months I have started I have learnt is not to be rigid. Adapt to the market conditions simultaneously as the strategy forms. If the signals say enter, enter. Exit, exit. Targets are just mere "I want to right". Sometimes I am sometimes I am not. But if I adjust like water, I become like the market.

Easy to say this but the application difficult.

Bruce Lee would have been Sun Tzu's buddy.

Hi Lord Alfa ,

well it s very nice what you have written , really . If it was so easy to achieve.....once i had a dream , there was a big river and a was suppous to swim into it.....then i realized i have to go with the flow...not against i swim with the flow and believe me , was easy....
well there might be many explanation to this , but in trading for example i should probably wait for a trend and then jump into it , on corection instead of jumping somewhere in chop i did many times.....

good luck tio you and everybody , it s very nice forum...thanks everybody
