Almost 10 years ago I first found Betfair trading, it just doesn’t seem possible.
Looking back, although I was 100% dedicated to the task in hand, I didn’t think I would succeed or end up where I have. It’s extremely humbling. However, I’ve recently found myself lacking motivation…
Contemplation & Mortality?
They say a mid-life crisis is when you begin to realise your morality, buy a sports car, drink too much, holiday too much or make impulsive decisions.
If that’s really the case I’ve probably had a few already!
Joking aside, recently I’ve spent a lot of time contemplating the next move. I love trading, the analysis, understanding market motivations and well, making a heap of money. But recently I’ve found the flashing numbers don’t get me excited like they once did…
Sorry, I can almost hear readers muttering ‘dickhead’ under their breath right now as they strive to become profitable.
But I think it’s important to keep things real – success can be quite de-motivating.
Right now I’m not sure what the next move is. I could set some ludicrous goals like make £100,000,000 or get a Lamborghini, but I already know from previous experience they’ll be wholly unsatisfying once achieved.
The best rewards to me are things like; traveling 5 minutes to work, no mortgage, having the freedom to do what you like and extra time with the kids. But once you’ve ticked all those off, what’s next?!
I’m sure I’ve opened myself up to some abuse here, but what would be the next thing to do on your list and why?
