Creativity

I like to tell you a story. One day, Einstein has to give a conference to all the top scientists in the world. On the way there, he tells his driver, that looks a bit like him, "I'm sick of all these conferences, I always say the same things over and over!"
The drivers agrees, "You're right, as your driver, I attended all of them, and even though I don't know anything about science, I could give the conference in your place."
"That's a great idea!" says Einstein "Lets switch places then!"
So they switch clothes and as soon as they arrive, the driver dressed as Einstein, goes on stage and starts giving the usual speech, while the real Einstein, dressed as the car driver, attends it.
The driver does a good job and he impresses the crowd. However, there was one scientist in the crowd who wanted to impress everyone and thought of a very difficult question to ask Einstein. When the conference is about to end, This guy stands up and interrupts the conference by posing his very difficult question.
The whole room goes silent, holding their breath, waiting for the response.
The driver looks at him, dead in the eyes and says : "Sir, your question is so easy to answer that I'm going to let my driver reply to it for me."

You don't need to be a "genius" to be creative. You may ask what creativity has to do with arbitrage business. Creativity is a very important skill in arbitrage business. We must always come up with new strategies and new techniques.

Expectations

Expectations play a major role in our quest to reach higher goals. We can only achieve what we dream about. If you say "Oh, arbitrage business will be very bad next year", then it will be. You must come up with positive expectations if you want to reach your goal.

This year was a good year for me but I made lesser profit when compared to last year but still happy about it. Next year, I'm planning to make "more" profit then this year. However, I know I won't be able to make like 2 years before. Now, conditions are much more harder, much more challenging. However, we're more experienced and better armed. Things can only get better. Good luck all!  ;)

Oh guys, I like this time of year so much. After Thursday, not much action. Time to rest!
Of course, Premier League goes non-stop but most of leagues are off during winter break. Work schedule will start to get busy after 6 Jan. Good time to Enjoy Winter Break and rest.

Sawyer 's not only a professional to what he is doing but he seems also like a "good philosopher" and i am guessing that most succesfull people are usually both!

His Einsten's story inspired me to tell a story about Plato and his teacher Socrates

"Well Socrates and Plato was walking in a beatifull spring morning then Plato looked his teacher straight in his eyes and asked him "Socrates what is the secret to succed in life?"  , socrates instead of a reply he grab plato from his hair and put his head inside the nearby water fountain , plato was struggling with all his strength to free himself but socrates was holding his head inside the water and when plato  was almost drawn only then he released him.
After a while and when plato was recovering from the shock Socrates said to him " Plato you will only succeed in life if you put all your powers and efforts like you did to save your life from drawining!"
People are having desires that only if they are strong desires will become realities and not just remain expectations

Health and happiness to you all

don't underestimate good fortune

Gary Player once said "the more I practise my bunker shots the luckier I get."

if we work at it then more chance of a lucky break, I can only speak for myself
but "lucky breaks" are needed too and I've had a few of these

2016......best year so far :)

p.s, I go into 2017 with low expectations, exactly how I went into 2016 and hope to be pleasantly surprised?
sure you can write about positive thinking and how this will work? but ultimately you can only speak for yourself,
if it helps you great?......you can't say it wll help me or anyone else, sure reading about socrates and einstein are nice stories.....but stories are all they are....maybe those guys would have made good arbers?....maybe not? ;)

I have to congratulate anyone that is still arbing i really believe you are champs. Personally for my taste and geographic location(maybe?) i believe it is a waste of time. Other than that year went well health related we are fine, family related we are fine pretty much a good year all around.

Good to hear that important things go well for you rai :)

On the contrary: I believe anybody making consistent profit from betting and NOT arbing is a champ. So probably you are the champ!

Indeed,i consider the ones that win in sport betting industry(without arbing) exceptional people. If someone can make consistent profits from betting without needing soft bookies, he is profesional by all the means of this word.I take my hat off to those!

profit is profit

give me an arber making 100k before a gambler making 20k, the champs are the guys who consistently make
profit from bookmakers, how they do it is irrelevant.

so many guys come on here and write bullshit

*I am a successful gambler who discovered arbing.....ok*

Hahah, yorkjoss rules!!
For me is more difficult make 20k consistently just gambling, than 100k arbing... i hope that the majority of this forum think in the same way. For this Raizzak numbers cause surprise.
But....i prefer 100k of course😉😉
