On Living Young, Wild and Free.

Malibu Beach, California 2012

A week and a half in Los Angeles so far, wow.

And it’s not even over yet.

I’m not sure how to describe everything that I’ve experienced, seeing and training beside the best in the world is indeed a magical feeling.

Once again this trip reminds me how lucky I am that I’m actually living my dreams and doing exactly what I want to do with my life.

Also it makes me that much more determine to succeed.

I’m under no illusion and know that doing what I’m doing cost a heck of a lot of money, and that I’ve been extremely lucky. I’ve managed to pay for this trip because I liquidated my entire stock portfolio a couple weeks ago in the market rally and made quite a decent profit.

It’s funny because right after I did that the market started sliding and now it’s not doing so well once again.

I’m not pretending that I know a heck a lot about the markets and trading (but at the same time quite a lot of effort was taken in terms of my own education and research work before I bought those stocks. Please do not think that the stock market is an easy way to make money, only if you’re willing to put in the effort and willing/able to take the risk should you try), but I do realise that once you learn to run your own race instead of following someone else, you make the moments work for you, rather than trailing in what that could have been.

And for the guts to listen to your heart and chase your dreams, the reward is that you get to live like this.

Flying off to San Francisco for the weekend, gotta keep moving. =)
