Knowledge and Fear

The Knowledge that 801052 is out there, stalkng it's next victim.

The Fear that if I rest for to long, 801052 will catch me. Sometimes at night I wake in a panic and check the GPS tracker, just to be sure I have enough distance to comfortably rest.

Survival is my motivator.

801052 is out there....

You guys have it all wrong. She is just a sweet girl who bakes cookies on her exhaust manifold.

For me, it's quite literally money and coffee that gets me out of bed early (and then before I started driving, I would need to get a 4 mile run in and a gym workout, but now I digress).

I trade the forex market between Sun pm and Fri pm, and while it's automated, most of my money is made overnight while I sleep during the European market. 99% of my trades close during that time frame, which means when I wake-up in the morning, I've either made 1-3% while I slept or presently in I am presently.

While it sucks that I got up at 3 am to see if I made more money while I slept, It keeps me going knowing money comes in regardless of me driving or not and each morning I get to see more of it...and of course, drink more coffee. Man, I love my morning cuppa.

From drawdown to finally closing my today's trades at +2.18%

I was getting sleepy from having woken up at 3am, and I still had 5+ hours of driving to go. Got that alert, and it woke me right up!

Guess we all need to find something that really drives us.
