Larry Smith: Why you will fail to have a great career

By Lawrence

This is an interesting TedTalk that gathered quite a number of comments from the viewers. It is about the excuses people made to avoid following their passions.

It is a funny talk. Mr. Smith delivered a great talk and it is very much to the point.

To follow your passion – you may not even know what your passion is. And when you do, you may not have the courage to pursuit your dreams. And most important of all, you may fail and it is something you have to learn to accept and move on.

To my younger readers – you may not know for sure trading is where your passion is. You may have chosen the wrong instrument to start with. Until you experiment enough you may never know. Most of us may not have what it takes to be great traders. But there is always room for decent traders to make a living. If trading is something you truly love to do, you can make it work too.

    I agree 100% with that. Follow your passions, that is what makes life worth living. Thanks for the reminder post.

    With kind regards,
