Sunday ... it is a day where we all taking a break from hectic weekly schedules and spend some time with family or friends. How is your routine on Sundays?
Some may spend their mornings going to church or temples, while some spend the Sunday morning sleeping till noon(not healthy la) ... perhaps, some went jogging/exercise. These positive activities could bring us goodness in our lives.
Waking up in the morning to play pc/tv games is a total waste of time, unless you are preparing for the World Cyber Game, which I believe most of us are not gamers ... err ... some like me who won't even play pc-games. I don't even know those games in facebooks. Simply put, I do not play games. But playing games occasionally is good ... activating brains and giving us some pleasure?
As for me, Sunday is a day to play with my kids. Bringing them for nice breakfast, reading some of my good books while accompanying my wife for her 'marketing'. If we have the time, we will visit our mom/aunts. Yes, it is always a joy to see them ... and getting my kids to be closer to them. Then, once a month, we bro/sis will gather for a nice lunch or dinner.
Spending a little time to have my 'Sunday blah-blah' posting will be good for my own pleasure reading too. Haha. So, blogging is also an activity for me on Sundays.
I like Sundays ... no trading markets, no teaching of Maths/Trading .... while catching up with going-ons. But ... I won't say I dislike Monday. I like Mondays(or any days too) ... as markets re-open for the trading week, checking more latest developments and sharing with my whole tratles-group. They have motivated me to stay in touch!! Haha.
What is Sunday to you?
It is a day to reflect on our weeks ... and planning for next week. That is Sunday to me.
Tonight is important night ... Liverpool vs Man United. It won't be a usual Sunday night where I will bring my family for nice dinner, coming back to do stock analysis and put those analysis for my stock-watch page. Tonight, anticipating battle with MU and Liverpool certainly is an under-dog. Could only hope they play well.
As I said, I do not watch TV. I prefer reading and I do read GOOD books everyday. I m brain-washing myself into learning how to be a successful person, my standard. Well, the above table reflect a lot about what I am trying to do with my mindset and also directing myself towards my goals ... to be in those few successful group of people. I do mention FEW ... as only 20% of the majority manage to be successful in their own view. We viewed 'success' very subjective. To me, I m a successful person, tho I m staying in cheap apartment, riding a second-hand kap-chai(Honda without doors. haha ... BTW, that is why I like Oriental Holding too?) ... driving a Proton. I am contented and glad ... reflecting on my achievements, I am very proud of myself ... as I m claiming myself as successful. But ... I do still move ahead to do better than MYSELF.
Testimonial by a tratle(cohort-4)
Today is the 1st anniversary of my trading in stock market (KLSE). I started trading in September 2011 when the market plunged by about 16% (270 points) due to the growing fear of European sovereign debt crisis. I saw it as an opportunity for 'bottom fishing' after preparing myself for about a year reading all I can about stock trading or investment. I also read bibliographies of successful traders/investors and finally decided trading suits my character and style. However, most of the information were from the Westerners and hardly any local traders in KLSE who publish their knowledge and experience in writings.
So, I decided to 'google' for local traders who might be sharing their experience in the internet i.e. blogs and guess who I found. Yes, I came across CP Teh's blog, 'My Trading Adventure' . When I read his blog about his adventure in stocks trading , the first thing that came to my mind is that he is a 'genuine blogging trader'. I was impressed that he was not afraid to reveal all the trades he was holding, including his losses/ mistakes, emotions that he experienced and what he had learned to trade better.
The moment when I found out that he was offering trading classes to newbies like me, without a second thought I signed up for his classes which cost only about RM### unlike others who tried to promote their trading courses which costs thousands of ringgit and with absurd promises such as '100% guaranteed profit', I could feel that he is an honest teacher who is really interested to help others from losing in the market.
The best part of joining his 'Tratles group' is that after the 5-modules in his trading class I get to continue with his trading analysis meeting for only a small fee which is almost negligible (sometimes my trading fee for a trade cost more than what he charged for a meeting).
Stock trading can be very boring and lonely especially when one trades alone. However, with other 'tratles' (experienced ones and amateurs) in the group that meet up regularly to share their trading experiences and knowledge is definitely priceless. We also actively motivate and alert each other, looking after each others' back while trading to minimise our losses and to increase our profits.
I personally feel that Mr. Teh CP has a genuine intention to help us young and new traders. He constantly remind us to have proper trading plans and be disciplined to carry out our trades without being influenced by greed or fear.
Lastly, after one year of trading in KLSE, which is constantly manipulated by syndicates or smart money, I'm glad that I have gained net profit from my trades. I want thank CP Teh and all 'tratles' for their sharing and moral support in our trades.
This was written yesterday by a tratle, sharing with the whole group. Ghee ... thanks.'su This is my 'success' stories. I am such a 'teacher' ... really want to help newbies/novices at a cheapest of rate(just to cover my small overheads and time spent). I am motivated by their progresses ... I am motivated to teach better, share more by their commitments and many kind/good people in our group, helping others too. That is the spirit I want to cultivate in our group.
He is a professional, good income from his full time job, very smart person, humble to learn. He is one of the most discipline person in our group, prudent and believe in sharing. If one check the 'box' of success above, he has it in him to be successful. It is a certainty, with a condition not to layback and letting our ego to de-rail us ...from our goals.
So, many things being said and shared in a week basis. Many trades being done. There certainly some thing significant that we could pick up, to motivate ourselves further to improve ourselves .. next week ... next next week ... or in near future.
Success ... it doesn't come instantly. It certainly not basing on LUCK as most believe. It takes time to believe in yourself, doing right things, do some mistakes ... fall down and pick yourself up!! Success as many READ about it, may differ from each individual.
What is success to you?
Success is tasting simple minutes of sweetness, after hours of sweating.
As my favourite quote goes : Winners never quit, quitters never win.
Have a nice Sunday and week ahead.
p/s : Thanks for reading and being so supportive. God Bless.
