I recently watched this inspiring Ted talk by Philippe Petit (high wire artist and death-defying magician). He is the real-life person that inspired the recent the movie The Walk, the docudrama of his amazing real-life tightrope walk between the Twin Towers.
For better or worse, after all my years of being involved in day trading, often times I associate things in life with action on a chart. If I’m going through a rough spot in my life I think of it as nothing more than a dip in my daily life action that is hitting a point of support. As such, my expectation is that it will eventually bounce and rise into a positive trend in the near future. Of course, using this metaphor, there are times when I also bang up against personal challenges or as I call them life resistance points.
As I was listening to Philippe’s amazing story, I could not help but think of how it applies to this incredibly challenging, frustrating, and ultimately rewarding thing called day trading.
It’s worth 18 minutes of your life to watch the presentation. However, here is my summary of his talk…
