Driving For Success in Soccer or Trading

Stock Tickers

When you have this much drive, passion, and focus, you can't help but win. It doesn't matter if your kicking a ball around the lawn or trading in size, every game has it's rules and when you're not following them, you're losing.

To use a soccer reference, goals aren't made and games aren't won when you're attempting to kick the ball into the opponents goal before your setup is complete. Working, waiting, and having patience to make the shot when you have the best of it is how you win in soccer and when money is made (for you, instead of your counter-party).

When you're entering in trades half-cocked without knowing all the facts and worried you might "miss out", that's when you're in the background chasing the winner.
