This past Friday I managed to make $113 within a period of an hour.
The plan was to repeatedly employ the same strategy the whole day in hopes to multiply my profits.
A friend phoned, asked that we go out for drinks. I said no I can't.
My brother needed small help, the kind of help that we both could live even if I don't help.
All these were sacrifices in my head. I was on fire thinking I am doing something of greater meaning, so I can't leave my work.
Friday went well, I remember telling my partner that I am happy because I managed to reach my daily target. I even added that this time I will exercise disciple to not lose all the profits(Which I always do).
Come Saturday, I thought let me give it a go and increase my profits. It did not take 5 minutes to lose it all.
Perhaps many things are involved in my loss but "DISCIPLINE" is key to all of it.
All the sacrifices meant shit. Do I regret it? Yes. Did I learn? We shall see. But without discipline, an empire can crumble in a day.
In my case small profits, yes, but it meant something considering that I skipped what may have been a good day with good company (partying with beautiful people).
