One of 3 writings I’ve always had on the top of my trading notebook:
“The first law of success is concentration.
Bend all your energies to one point,
and go directly to that point, looking neither to the left nor the right.
By focusing your efforts to a single point,
you’ll always achieve the greatest results.
If you concentrate your efforts on a few major goals,
your efficiency will soar, your projects will be completed,
and you’ll be going somewhere.
Focus totally on the business at hand
and command yourself to do exactly what you want to do.
If you focus the full power of all you are
on what you have a burning desire to achieve,
you’ll attain success.”
