I’m an average guy, and that’s ok

I’m currently reading a very interesting book called “The subtle art of not giving a fuck”. A very interesting book I might add.

This book takes most of the common self-help/motivational agenda that we find in the books and send it down the drain.

One thing that I’ve read yesterday made me to wrote this article.

Most of use are pretty average at most things we do[…] (more…)

Trading journal – The first steps

Ever since I’ve discovered stocks and financial markets I’ve desired to become a trader and a stock investor.  And this happened around 7-8 years ago, when I was in 11th or 12th grade, I can’t remember exactly.

I remember that I was watching the stock market from here in Romania, checking how the stock were progressing and dreaming about having the money to own stocks in different companies.  (more…)

How I became a morning person!

I like to think of myself as a morning person. Most of the days I have set my alarm clock at 5 AM or 5:30 . If i’m tired or without anything important to do, I get off the bed around 6:00. Even in week-ends or in my days off, I wake up at 7:00, 8:00 at most ( unless I went to sleep very, very late like three or four in the morning).

Cold shower therapy

I turn the faucet on. The water starts to pour down on floor. The coldness of the water makes the air turn cold as well. Some of the voices in my heads start to mumble You will regret this! Don’t do it, Stefan! Don’t do it!

But I did it anyway. The first to make contact were the feet. The coldness of the water makes my mind refreshed. I make a little courage and let the hands to join the party. First the right, then the left. I splash myself, like I child in a hot spring day, to let the body get used with the cold water.  (more…)

Pushing beyond your limits

We often hear around us to push our limits, to go beyond them, only doing that we will succeed. I can agree with that statement, but I believe most of the people that are preaching this “push your limits as long as possible” don’t mention a little, tiny important thing. And that is knowing your limits first.

How can you expect someone to push beyond their limits if they don’t know what their limits are? Would you buy a car if you din’t know the max km/hour that car can push? Would you buy a PC without knowing his specs? (more…)
