SJ tells it like it is. If you want to move from the ordinary to the extraordinary – you have to love it but more importantly you can’t give up.
Sometimes I think about the things that I did growing up. There is no reason why I shouldn’t have a black belt in karate. Why can’t I say more than ten words in French? Tennis? Racketball?
I loved all of those things, but I acted like a rational person. After I didn’t immediately master it, I quit. Today perseverance is one of my strengths, but there are many days when I want to do what any rational person would do.
A few years ago I was asked to write a chapter in a book “The StockTwits Edge.”Here is what the author wrote about me,
He is an inspiration to other traders and a model of decorum, so it is no surprise his words are a testament to persistence, will and believe in yourself.
Question: Can rational people achieve the extraordinary (start a business, complete their bucket list, become CEO of a fortune 500 company, etc)?
Would love hear your thoughts in the comment section.
