The Will to Win (Part 7)

7. IT'S NORMAL TO HAVE PROBLEMS: A problem in this business, is the difference between what I have and what I want...and the secret in this difference is simply to bring the two together. We are all in the problem solving business, not real estate, Tupperware or Amway.

Thinking positive is OK in itself, but much more needs to be done other than just thinking positive about our trading...we can't run from the problems but rather we must learn to face them and defeat them, thus learning the how and why as we work through every situation that comes along.

Every time we solve a problem and think we have it all together...another problem will come along. We will never have all the problems solved, but we can learn from them as we go through life and take care of them as they occur. I have never met anyone who had it all together...I've met some that thought they had it together but no such thing.

Problems are here and they will always be here and it is like an old saying "when your up to your neck in alligator's, it's hard to remember that the initial objective was to drain the swamp"...alligator's represent the problems that we face...obstacles, and you must be bigger than anything that life may throw at you and who you are and who you want to be is bigger than any problem that can be put in your way through your life.

Robert Schuler said, "tough times don't last, but tough people do", and that is so true.
