Trade the Bruce Lee way

Bruce Lee quotes as applied to trading

Did you know that Bruce Lee 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 can 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. Correct. NOT to prove that we are right. NEITHER to prove that the rest is 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 U.S. Army Draft Board? He must have trained a lot since then to be able to do the famous two finger push-up 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. Then you have a chance to scare Bruce Lee off 😉

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. 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 an injury at his back with doctors telling him that he would never practice kung fu again? He spent the next 6 months developing his philosophy and teaching himself to walk again. After 6 months he left the hospital faster and stronger than ever before. How does that apply to trading? Everything is possible. Keep trying!

And last but not least. Did you know that Bruce Lee believed that the more a man smiles, the higher his moral worth? Keep smiling guys. Women find it sexy. Right, ladies?
