Having quotes from profitable, successful, and professional traders can be motivational when you’re feeling down on your luck. I like to read quotes when I’m feeling unsure or down on anything in life. So, I thought I would gather some of the best quotes I found to help give your confidence a little boost in the right direction!
“Every trader has strengths and weaknesses. Some are good holders of winners, but may hold their losers a little too long. Others may cut their winners a little short, but are quick to take their losses. As long as you stick to your own style, you get the good and bad in your own approach.” -Michael Marcus
“You can be FREE. You can live anywhere in the world. You can be independent from routine and not answer to anybody.” -Alexander Elder
“A lot of people get so enmeshed in the markets that they lose perspective. Working longer does not necessarily equate with working smarter. In fact, sometimes, it’s the other way around.” -Martin Schwartz
“The secret to being successful from a trading perspective is to have an indefatigable and an undying and unquenchable thirst for information and knowledge.” -Paul Tudor Jones
Hearing motivational quotes is so powerful because the message that someone else believes you can achieve what you want to achieve can be a more powerful incentive to try harder. If your mentor, teacher, or coach believes you can truly do something, you’re more likely to do so. That’s why I think it’s so important for people to keep themselves inspired and motivated. Because when you’re struggling, the best thing someone can hold on to is hope. I’m going to talk about Shawn Lucas, the head trader at Apiary Fund and how inspiring his trading ability has been to me. Here’s some quotes from Shawn, and hopefully they will help get you curious and inspire you as well!
“If you’re not in line with what the market is willing to give you, you’ll fail as a trader every time.” -Shawn Lucas
“There is nothing better in this world than learning this art, this skill. It’s so liberating!” -Shawn Lucas
“So many traders focus on ‘what to do,’ and ‘how much I should do,’ but there are very few traders who focus on ‘how to do it.’ ” -Shawn Lucas
