In my opinion (because that’s all my post really is)….you haven’t HAD to jump in. Let me clarify: I took Spanish for years (YEARS!!) and was so-so in the language. Then I spent one month in Mexico and I HAD to speak it. I learned more Spanish that one month than I did in all my classes because I didn’t really have any other choice.
You can be picky right now, and you know it; hence, there’s no real ‘need’ to start pounding the pavement as a stock trader.
Actions speak louder…and saying you want to do it but allowing yourself to be distracted is telling me there’s something else to the story. Either it’s because you’re feet aren’t to the fire, or perhaps you are watching stock traders getting hammered in the market right now and there’s a little voice in your head that thinks ‘this could be a disaster” and you don’t want to risk any failure?
You won’t fail if you don’t do it…and that’s the safe way to go. Talking about it is so much easier (and successful-sounding) than doing it and dealing with the true grit of it all.
