How in the world could trading and a Bamboo Tree be remotely correlated?
I’m here to tell you that your success in trading has everything to do with a bamboo tree. Let me explain.
First, you need to understand how a bamboo tree grows. A bamboo, like any plant, needs constant nurturing, water and sunshine. Every day a bamboo tree needs to be catered to or it will die.
The first year, a bamboo doesn’t even break ground. The second, again, no growth above the soil. The third year, again, no visible signs of anything. Every day, watering the bamboo, and still in the 4th year...nothing.
And finally in the 5th year, a miracle!
The Chinese Bamboo Tree grows 80 feet in just six weeks!
Now, does the Bamboo Tree really just grow in those six weeks? Of course not!
The 4 years prior, all the growth of the Bamboo was underground. Building a massive root system to sustain incredible growth above ground.
This same principle is exactly true for your process of becoming a master trader. Very little, to no growth will be “seen” your first 6 months to a year. Likely, you’ll have doubters and haters.
But, what you and I understand, is although your account isn’t growing, YOU are growing inside. You are building knowledge, skills and emotional strength on the inside that nobody can see visibly.
It is never easy. It’s slow to show any progress your first year trading. It’s frustrating and unrewarding at times. But, if you stay patient and persistent, it is soooo worth it!
If you are in your 1st or 2nd year as a trader, and you see no noticeable growth in your account, take a step back and evaluate the growth you have made as a person.
You keep sustaining the inner strength it takes to become a trader, you then will begin to ‘break above soil’.
This parable can be used for anything in your life. Working out, college, 1st year in entrepreneurship, etc.
You decide to go and do anything big in life, you need to be prepared and buckle down and build that root system that nobody will see.
I know this from first-hand experience. You will breakthrough if you don’t give up.
