Modify your dreams or magnify skill

You must either modify your dreams or magnify your skill …..Jim Rohn

Overestimation of one’s ability is a sign of weakness. Setting overambitious targets and failing to deliver breeds demoralization and sabotages the desire to upgrade yourself. Overconfidence includes excessive pride and boasting, refusal to listen to constructive criticism and not taking remedial measures in advance. It is better to know your own limitations.

To succeed in the stock market you must know what to do, how to do, and possess the skill and temperament to actually do it.

Set goals you know you can reach. Perseverance and enthusiasm are the keys to success.

Thomas Edison, when asked how he felt to have failed 2000 times before he succeeded in the invention of the light bulb said, “I never failed once; it just happened to be a 2000-step process and I have found 2000 ways that didn’t work."

A boy frustrated with all the rules he had to follow asked his father, “Dad, how soon will I be old enough to do as I please?” The father answered immediately, “I don’t know.
Nobody has lived that long yet.”
