Rufus is an aspiring entrepreneur, similar to how I am an aspiring trader.
We regularly get together and help each other to keep going after our dreams, whilst everyone thinks we are crazy.
We take turns at giving and receiving encouragement.
Here are the salient points from one of those conversations (Rufus was doing the giving):
- Celebrate the victories
- Be grateful to be able to work for yourself, to be in full control of your destiny
- There will also be up’s and down’s
- Realize that you are always learning and collecting more experiences
- There is no substitute for hard work
- You must be able to rely on yourself – and never stop believing in yourself
- You have to keep on getting up and fight again
