Whereas say in the field of trading forex or other investments, I had some bad experience and that in a way haunt me. Each new project is approached with more cautions (intention is good - not to befall into any harm) but it can also be tipping a little too much that effect........
Ah......when consequences involve more than one party, the decision, responsibilities and risk takes on a different level. Guess if I am single, I probably would be more risk taking compared to now, married with 2 young kids. The fear of losing even one time can be stressful that it affects the judgement call of making the right move. People who trade forex would tell you is not a one time luck that gets them to be where they want to be. They stay in the game and staying in the game means sufficient capital to take advantage of market conditions.
For example, I had ran a marathon before many years ago and if I would do it again, I know I could with sufficient training. I believe I can because my past experience (completing the race) tells me so. I am convinced. In situation like making lots of money, I do not have this access. Thus, I have to construct or imagine what it would be like if I am rich?
To think of one image is easy but to keep it constant, be loyal to this image, believing it is possible every moment of your life till it materialised in the real world is a journey. And a journey that requires faith, courage and persistency.
