This is a list of expectations that I have put upon myself...


I will be profitable within x number of years, months, days, etc...

I will be profitable today...
I will not make any gifts today...
I will fail today...
I will never be a good trader...
I am following a system that doesn't work...
I will be the top 1%...
I can make a few gifts today so don't worry...
I will be live soon...
I can do this, I can do this...

etc..
etc..

All just rubbish. Doesn't matter does it...

Unmet expectations lead to disappointment, disappointment leads to despair and despair leads to capitulation. Best to live without to many expectations. Goals yes, expectations no.....however I do believe in living in a constant state of expectancy. In other words, I constantly expect good things to happen but without a time frame or manner in which they should happen.

It is funny. Now, I have a hard time sleeping past 5am... Used to being VERY AWAKE at that time!

I have always been an early riser but I would run or swim @ 5am and that is great. Now I have to do that later, but so goes life..

Things are getting slow here for other work... However, come January, it is going to be an extremely busy year. I am buying another 20+ houses for rentals in the mainland, building out a 25 unit subdivision, rehabbing a large home for resale, preliminary stages of doing a high-rise 30+ story residential tower, and have 2 kids with wife, workout regime, AND TRADING....

Wow... I am going to have to get back to my old Frog Eating Habits...

Dang, I need to move to the islands and work for you!

I've never been the yearly bird. It's hard for me to get up before 10 am. But can stay awake over night, esp. in a club. Lol.

That's good that business is going up. A lot to keep up with. Business, family and trading (another Business). That's gonna keep you pretty busy. I'm not sure when you are gonna sleep esp. when madLyfe gonna get there. Haha...
I'm probably gonna be back in Russia around the April next year. Starting my life all over again. That should be fun. Lol.

Yes, well, me too I guess... As the owner, we always get paid last right... I need to get smarter and make sure I get paid well throughout but that always hurts the upside and I have been one to take on risk...

Anytime you do come out, I would love to meet up with you. I could take you to the zoo and introduce you to some other warriors... haha..

I feel you! Kids are changing life! No more late nights (or early mornings) with friends. Have to be home with family!

I know the pain of handing out paychecks and waiting to write myself one.......seems the employees never remember they got paid all along during the process and resent the ones I wrote myself when it came time to take the rewards from the risk I took. I offered to cut them in on the deal if they would work for zero along with me for the time it took to bring a project to a profitable close. No takers...so I told them to be quiet and go back to work. Thats the last I heard of it. But yes, paying yourself even a token salary during a project is important.

I have not learned that lesson yet.. 6 years and counting... In bed by 12:30 or 1 up by 6... Now, if I could only figure out how to get by without any sleep at all..... that would be sweet..... I would have more time to trade and play video games!!
