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!
