Well 2018 has come and gone in a “New York Minute” and I thought this would be a good chance to plant a seed of greatness in you for 2019…

Best of all it’s practical and you can use it immediately.

Their is a brilliant book called “On the Shortness of Life”, by Seneca.

One of the biggest “Light Bulb Moments” from the book is this….

“It’s not that we have a short time to live, but that we waste a lot of it. Life is long enough. A sufficiently generous amount has been given to you for the highest achievements, if your time is well invested.”

So how do you invest your time well? It all starts with having a fixed goal.

You see, without a fixed goal, you’re heading in a million directions at once and…

As the saying goes, “a man who chases two rabbits catches none”.

Even if your fixed goal isn’t the top one, it’ll still help keep you focused. It’s vital to understand that a wrong fixed goal is better than no goal at all.

Another benefit to focusing on a goal is that you’ll teach yourself to stay disciplined.

“Discipline is the “Mother of Success”
Listen, life is short and we’re sadly reminded of this when someone close to us passes away. I don’t mean to sound depressing, but I say this as a wake-up call to take action.

This way the new year will be one of hope and satisfaction vs one full of disappointment and unfulfilled dreams.

Anyway, I wish you all the best in 2019 both in your trading but personal life as well!
