Earning It Every Single Day

Posted on March 7, 2013 · Posted in Blog

Hi Ya’ll!

Liz here, and as usual below is my Youtube recap for the day.

There really isn’t much to say about today other than it’s one of those days where things can get really ugly if you let them.  And it’s important to realize that it’s one of those things that average people don’t  understand.  I’ll actually get into this in a future post.

I was actually going to take a minute to answer some of the most common questions I am asked on a daily basis by some of my Youtube followers but I decided instead to talk about one of my favorite topics.. talent.

Let’s first clear something up.  The primary reason that I am a great trader is my ability to control my emotions.

Contrary to popular opinion it’s not because I run good or am insanely talented.

LOL  Poker players will all understand that quite well.

In fact some of the comments and emails suggest that I’m something other than one hard ass working and dedicated mofo.  I’ve received feedback like:

“You’re a ninja!”

“You’re a wizard!”

“You obviously have a talent for this.”

“Wow, you have a god given talent for gambling.”


And my personal favorite:

“Lucky Liz!”

Now to be quite honest I’m extremely flattered that some of you think I’m super talented.  But, I’m going to have to disagree entirely.

You see trading and poker wasn’t always easy for me.

In fact at one point I was a loser at both.  But, because of perseverance and hard work I’m now profitable.  And I’m no different than you.  In fact I’d be willing to bet I’m less intelligent and I scored way lower on my SAT’s.

The only reason I am where I am is because I never quit.  No matter what gambling has thrown my way I’ve analyzed and studied my mistakes and I’ll never stop improving.

So, if you look at my videos and think, “Holy shit, I can never do that, or she’s just good because she’s talented.”  Then you might be missing out on the opportunity of a lifetime.

Anyone can do it.

Ok enough of my rant below is my trading video and also another video that is quite long.  But all you have to worry about is forwarding it to the 45:27 mark and listen to exactly what the scouting report was on one of my favorite athletes.  In fact you don’t even have to listen to that.  You can go straight to 45:44 and learn the single most important thing that anyone needs to be a winner.

Peace out till next time!

Lucky Liz
