Hi everyone, finally I am back with a blog update moving forward. As you can see I have been busy updating the blogs from April 2020 to Jan 2021 (only manage to update from April 2020 to Oct 2020 so far). I must say it is tiring but let’s come back to the main topic. This month most of the stocks took a beating, as majority of the counters are in the RED. Same goes for my portfolio (4 out of 8 stocks were in the RED)
How do I feel so far?
After updating my blog for 5-6 months now (From April 2020 to Oct 2020) , it has become tiring. No wonder most bloggers that it takes persistence & discipline, as there are days which I don’t feel like writing & there is nothing to write.
Especially when my portfolio didnt move much after a month & it can be pretty boring. So those feelings creep up on me, wanting to give it a pass.
But I guess I persisted, even as I am writing now, I feel like giving up, as so far , I am not sure whether anyone is benefiting (not to mention , whether is there anyone reading this).
Plus the fact, this whole month, I couldn’t buy anything. Couldn’t buy because of 2 reason
1. It is harder & harder to find undervalued stocks, now that the market is back to normal. So it takes a lot of patience & discipline to do nothing
2. There were multiple instance that I want to place order in 2 stocks which were undervalued, but the petty part of me , got to me. Couldn’t buy anything because I keep lowering the price by 2 – 5 cents, trying to get a cheaper average price. But in the end the transaction couldn’t match (Meaning no wanted to sell to me at that low price)
So, what did I learn? For every success in life, it takes a whole lot of perseverance & discipline. As my coach reminded me, “Enjoy the process”, this is the 1 verse I repeat to myself constantly. From this, I realize I am the type that focus on the destination but forgets the journey. Are you with me in this journey?
