15/6 – Three-Year Mark in my FX trading project

A couple of milestones have been reached with this blog:

  • 600 blog posts have been published
  • 3-year anniversary of its setup date (May 2013)

If you have been reading this blog, then you will know that I have not yet reached the point of being a successful trader in the financial markets (but hey, at least I can write, right!?)

At this point, I thought it would be interesting to share two different viewpoints:

Muhammed Ali was coupled up with a lot of boxers to train with him prior to his big fight with George Foreman.  He asked each one of these guys what they thought his chances were of beating Foreman and they all thought that he would beat him.  Except for one, who predicted that Foreman would win.  Ali’s coaches immediately tried to get rid off this guy to stop the negativity impacting on Ali.  Quite to the contrary, Ali insisted that he keep on training with this guy until Ali convinced him that all those reasons for why Foreman would win, would cease to exist.

With that in mind, here is an email I received last weekend:


(Generously, A.M. has agreed to meet up together and talk, which I am looking forward to!)

Most people wouldn’t think I’d be able to inline skate 474km [113 laps] in a 24 hours period either…. [Le Mans, France, 2010]
