disciplineThe paradox seems to be, as Socrates demonstrated long ago, that the truly free individual is free only to the extent of his own self-mastery. While those who will not govern themselves are condemned to find masters to govern over them. – Steven Pressfield

You can’t possibly do this without discipline.

  • It takes discipline to sit down and do your work every single day.
  • It takes discipline to pull the trigger on a trade when market conditions give you reason to think twice.
  • It takes discipline to exit a position that you believe in when a stop is hit.
  • It takes discipline to pick an approach and work at it instead of switching to a new one every few months.
  • It takes discipline to struggle through the bad years.
  • It takes discipline to keep your ego in check during the good years.
  • It takes discipline to beat the Resistance.

It takes discipline to do this. Do you have it?
