Did you know that Bruce Lee’s moves were too fast to be captured on the regular 24 frames-per-second film, so they had to film him at 32 fps, and run the film slower so that his moves could be seen? Pretty cool, right? Have you heard him boasting about it? Me neither. As for trading now, why are we trading? To make money. Not to prove that we are right, or to prove that the rest are wrong. Make money and enjoy it. No need to put on airs.

Did you know that Bruce Lee failed his physical exam in 1963 and was deemed physically unacceptable by the US Army Draft Board? He must have trained a lot since then to be able to do the famous two-finger push-ups with an extra 125lb on his back. How does that apply to trading? Stop chasing one trading system after another. Stick to one trading strategy until you master it.

Did you know that Bruce Lee was a notorious street fighter and had a bad reputation with the police to the extent that his father sent him to the US, where he taught students kung fu to earn money? Let’s translate that to trading. The market is not going against you, there’s nothing personal here. Quit the self-pity, keep your eyes open and adapt. To use Bruce Lee words: be water my friend.

Did you know that in 1970 Bruce Lee suffered a back injury with doctors telling him that he would never practise kung fu again? He spent the next six months developing his philosophy and teaching himself to walk again. After six months he left the hospital faster and stronger than ever before. How does that apply to trading? Everything is possible. Keep trying!
