This Time It's Different

Different_Forex_FXPIG

I personally tend to believe that life itself was never meant to be complicated...Even more,I believe that if we look close into the nature, the Bible, the universe ( take it as you wish,  without trying to make a debate here about the creation of the world, the universe, the human race etc, its divine nature or its accidental set up) one can find a perfect manual on how to live the life in a very simple, content and fulfilling manner…

You see, making mistakes is part of the journey...That is how you learn… A toddler can only learn how to get up when he falls down...and you learn to walk with the constant effort… But here is the catch - constant effort with applying lesson of your mistake or failure.

Someone said (most probably Einstein, or maybe not, as all the wisdom of the 20th century is credited to the guy, as recently it is done to Paulo Coelho) you can’t expect a different outcome if you do the same thing over again.

The problem is, we are all extremely wise, smart, and outstandingly right… You may call it EGO, self-righteousness, or anything that will please your inner self contentment...but, each time we willingly and consciously repeat the same action, in a very smart manner, we repeat to us the 4 words that are the root of all F**ks up in life and in the world in general…

Yes, you read well, 4 words are the problem, ALWAYS, for EVERYTHING and ANYTHING, 4 words are the reason why life is so damn complicated (or why we complicate life) and why the world is so difficult place to live in...and those 4 words are: THIS TIME IT’S DIFFERENT!

THIS TIME IT’S DIFFERENT - this is what we say to our self, each time when we try to justify doing the same thing that messed up our career, our relationship, our family, our FOREX Portfolio…

Of course it is different...everything in life is unique, but just like in Forex, there are patterns…

Each time you get back with a partner that cheated on you, vote for the same political party that didn't deliver the last time, change your decision to quit your job because you were not valued as you should have, each time it is different - there are different reasons for  everything, always,  and reasons, excuses and justifications, you can always find them even without trying hard… But it is the same pattern- there are cycles that repeat and will repeat constantly…

Each time you allow your work to be underestimated, it is different- the company is facing a hard period, your boss has other, bigger headaches...but it is the same pattern, you will end up being the person that can take any type of crap on you, die and not say a word about it… Maybe eventually you will get a tapping on your shoulder, and you can continue feeling that you are the person that is the stronghold of the company...until you get replaced by another idiot that can get an excessive amount of crap on his shoulders...and costs less...

Each time you jump into fire at 3 am in the morning for a friend that failed you a million times, it is different - this time your friend really needs you and will appreciate your sacrifice and your hand...until the next time you need his help and he gives you an excuse that he can’t help you right now because he is bathing his dog...if you only called 35 seconds earlier.

Each time you enter a trade and continue to add up positions even though the market is against you, is different - you know that this time you are right and eventually the market will realise that. This time you read the fundamental reports very thoughtfully, and you followed the rate cuts of the central bank..and the market is going to realise that any second, hopefully before you get a margin call.

You see, if you could only stop using those 4 words, and instead say: I’ve seen this movie, bought the popcorn and got this T-shirt that says: “Move On you Idiot...or stop crying when you get your portion of crap served on a different plate”...then, you can start living and trading by the manual...
