“Difficult to see. Always in motion is the future” -The Empire Strikes Back

While Yoda is training Luke on Dagobah, Luke is troubled by a Force vision of his friends, Han, Leia, and Chewie, in trouble in Cloud City. Luke, clearly worried, asks Yoda if his friends will die. For a moment, it appeared that they would, but we’ve seen the movies. We know that they are rescued.

“Fear is the path to the dark side…fear leads to anger…anger leads to hate…hate leads to suffering.” -The Phantom Menace

When young Anakin Skywalker is standing before the Jedi Council, we have no idea the of the dark, bitter creature he will become. Yoda does, though. Yoda senses something in Anakin that worries him: Anakin’s fear. Yoda’s early prediction came true as Anakin’s fears are realized and he becomes angry and hateful. In the end, though, we see that Anakin doesn’t have anger and hate to lift him anymore, he is just suffering.

When Obi-Wan discovers the secret clone army being made for the Galactic Republic on the planet Kamino, he’s puzzled by who requested the order of the clones. He’s also searching for the assassin involved with the plot to kill Senator Amidala.

Yoda Quote #7 “Size Matters Not”

7. “Judge me by my size, do you?” The Empire Strikes Back

Yoda may not look like a formidable foe, but that’s a little green guy you do not want to mess with! This quote is from when Yoda explains to Luke Skywalker that while he might be small, he is an ally to the Force-which is strong and flows through everything. The Force is power, and when a Jedi can feel the Force surrounding them and connecting them to something as trivial as the trees in the forest or the rocks resting in the swamp, then they become powerful as well.

8. “Adventure. Excitement. A Jedi craves not these things.” The Empire Strikes Back

Some might say that the word Investor replaces the word Jedi quite well in this sentence; for some reason, the glamorous life of investing just doesn’t pull to some people. However, being a boring investor can equal some exciting returns when it’s time to retire.

9. “Use your feelings, Obi-Wan, and find him you will.” Revenge Of The Sith

I know what you might be thinking, “but Master Yoda, we were told never to let our emotions control our trading!” And it’s true, you shouldn’t. We are told over and over again, DO NOT let your emotions control your trading; however, there’s an important difference between emotions and feelings.

We Appreciate Our Traders

We’re dedicating this post to everybody who is currently learning how to trade. We really appreciate the effort our traders and team put into making this hive work.

When I was in third grade, our class had a career day; our homework was to go home and talk to our parents about what they did for work and share with the class the next day. That night, I climbed up on my parent’s bed where my dad was focused on his laptop.

How Running Has Helped Me Become a Better Trader

Ever been stuck in the slumps? Yeah, me too.

For the past couple of months I’ve felt like the man in this picture. When I ran, I was just going through the motions-just trying to finish my work out. Sure, there were some good days here and there, but I knew that I wasn’t reaching my potential as a runner. I also wasn’t feeling the happiness and energy I usually felt after a good run. I approached my coach, and he gave me some steps to help me out of this rut I’d gotten myself into. However, I realized that these steps wouldn’t just help me in my running; they could help me with my profession, my social life, and (of course) my trading.
