Abstract：These champions have one thing in common: they not only work their butts off, but they also enjoy what they do.
NBA legend Kobe Bryant used to drill 1,000 shots a day to improve his chances of making the 20-30 shots he took in a game.
Peyton Manning (NFL great) watched hours and hours of tapes of competing teams every day (including during the offseason) to hone his incredible ability to read defenses and score against them in one 60-minute game per week, in addition to team practice.
In his prime, Tiger Woods' profession was to win golf tournaments for a living (among other things). He won 14 major golf tournaments and 79 PGA Tour events prior to his injuries and personal problems, more than any other current golfer.
Before winning his first pro event at the youthful age of 18, he practiced faithfully every day for 15 years.
These champions have one thing in common: they not only work their butts off, but they also enjoy what they do.
They enjoy a good challenge and a good competition.
Their love for the game is so intense that it keeps them going through hours upon hours of tiresome duties that others may not enjoy, such as tape viewing, suicide drills, weight training, putting exercises, and so on.
These things are enjoyable to them!
We're not going to sugarcoat it this time. You've all grown up to be big lads and girls.
There will be days when trading is a waste of time!
It will reach a point where you will exclaim, “Gosh damn it! ”I'm ready to call it quits right now.
There will be days when you have no idea what you're doing. You'll have no idea why the market isn't reacting to the news or why your mechanical system is breaking down.
There will be days when you feel incredibly sluggish. You won't want to keep a journal. You won't want to go over your trades again.
Believe us when we say that you will have a lot of these days. Especially at the start.
It's the “passion of the game” that will keep you doing the things you need to do to become a competent trader on days like this.
It doesn't take a genius IQ, an Ivy League pedigree, or having three arms and three eyes to be an effective FX trader.
To trade properly, you'll need hours, if not days, of market research, chart time, and purposeful practice.
Your chances of surviving and thriving will be much boosted if you embrace the challenges of trading the currency market and have fun dissecting it!
That's all there is to it!

"Patience is the key to everything," American comic Arnold H. Glasgow once quipped. The chicken is gotten by hatching the egg rather than crushing it."
Ask any Wall Street quant (the highly nerdy math and physics PhDs who build complicated algorithmic trading techniques) why there isn't a "holy grail" indicator, approach, or system that generates revenues on a regular basis.
We've designed the School of WikiFX as simple and enjoyable as possible to help you learn and comprehend the fundamental tools and best practices used by forex traders all over the world, but keep in mind that a tool or strategy is only as good as the person who uses it.
Never make the first move unless you're a good-looking dude or gal trying to win over your crush. What we mean is that you should not always get in when the market is moving so swiftly.
