Lessons and Blessings in Trading

If everything in life either provides you with blessings or lessons, you will always profit, even when you lose money.

Viewing life through the lens of blessings and lessons means that you approach the world with a sense of gratitude.  There are a number of emotional and health benefits associated with gratitude, but perhaps the greatest benefit is that it promotes resilience.  It is through adversity that we stretch our boundaries and discover hidden reserves and talents.  As long as we take risks prudently, whether in romance or in markets, losses can become gifts once we seek and uncover their educational value. 

Perhaps we don't suffer because of losses; perhaps suffering results from an absence of gratitude.  It's the lessons that ultimately bring the blessings.
