I’m torn on how to approach the idea of luck. I’m the first to admit that I am one of the luckiest people on the planet. To be born into a prosperous American family in 1960 with smart parents is to start life on third base. The odds against my very existence are astronomical.
Ironies of Luck https://t.co/5BPWGbAxFi— Morgan Housel (@morganhousel) March 14, 2018
"Luck is the flip side of risk. They are mirrored cousins, driven by the same thing: You are one person in a 7 billion player game, and the accidental impact of other people\u2019s actions can be more consequential than your own."
So, yes, circumstances were nearly ideal for me to succeed as a stock market investor and author, but I needed to actively decide to take advantage of them.
You are changeable, ever waxing, ever waning;
First oppresses and then soothes as fact takes it;
Poverty and power
It melts the like ice.

When Saudi Arabia's King visited India in 1955, PM Nehru ordered all the Hindu Temples and Idols of Hindu Deities that came in Saudi King's way to be covered up.
Our temples are the architectural marvels in their own league.
Each of our temples tells the story of our rich history and cultural heritage. Was Nehru that ashamed of his own nation's heritage that he had to cover them up or there was some other reason? The answer would be best known to him only.
PM Nehru invited the then Saudi King Saud bin Abdul Aziz to India who accepted the invitation and planned a 17 day long official visit to India in 1955. Saudi King had brought a large delegation with him and he had to visit various Indian cities like Mumbai, Hyderabad, Agra,
Aligarh, Shimla, Mysore and Varanasi. However, when Saudi King reached Varanasi, Nehru ordered to cover all the temples and Idols with curtains that came in the way of the Royal Convoy. During his stay in Varanasi, Govt buildings were painted with the words "Kalma Tayyiba".
'Kalma Tayyiba' means 'There is not God but only Allah and Mohammed is his messenger'. In addition to it, Pooja and Aartis were also stopped at temples. I can call it the appeasement politics of the highest order and Nehru was indeed the greatest appeaser of all times.
India had a well developed education system centuries before the westerners arrived and called us uncivilized. Education was always given a great importance in Indian civilisation since times immemorial.
Ancient India had the Gurukulas and Ashramas as the epicentres of the knowledge and enlightenment. Bigger Gurukulas served as the centres of higher education called universities. Besides these universities, temples also emerged as the major learning centres.
Studying the Holy Scriptures, character building, personality development, responsibilities towards self,family and society,discipline and preservation of the ancient culture and heritage were the key embodiments of education.
This kind of education system made ancient India, a centre of knowledge all over the world. Many foreign students came to India for education and India was called the 'Vishwaguru'.
Takshshila and Nalanda were the two prominent universities of ancient India.
But were these only Universities of ancient India?The answer is 'No'.Let's learn about these gems of our education system that flourished across ancient India & be proud.
This was the oldest university of ancient India.Situated in Nalanda distt. of Bihar...
Sharing these 6 Important Dow Theory lessons for free which is sold as a ₹40,000 course.
⬇️ A Thread 🧵
It is a technical framework which explains markets movements based on certain rules called the Tenets of dow theory
The 6 tenets are listed below: 👇
1. 3 TREND MARKET
a) Primary trends
• Main movements in the market
• Time frame is large (1yr or greater)
b) Secondary trends
• These trends are corrections in the primary trend
• Direction opposite to the primary trend
• Timeframe is small (few weeks to few months)
c) Minor trends
• Smallest and most insignificant trends
• Smallest time frame ( few hours to few days)
2. MARKET DISCOUNTS EVERYTHING
This tenet is essentially made around the fact that the price of a stock incorporates all the information (any events, results, ratios, earning potential, etc.) about the stock.
Even future events are discounted as risk

12 Rules for Professional Positional Traders:
Collaborated with @niki_poojary
"Trade with a stop loss of 2% on your capital for the week."
If you're losing more than 2%, chances are your reading of the market is wrong. The best would be to call it quits for that week.
" Don't trade in the first 10 mins of any day"
Every day, there is far too much noise in the first few minutes. Positional traders should avoid some time in order to avoid being butchered right away.
" Wait for candle closings in your timeframe"
Beware of wicks. They are buyer/seller traps. Rather wait for a good candle to close above your support/resistance to open/close a trade.
" Don't lose more than 10% of your capital in a big gap"
The day I experienced the greatest Mtm loss to my capital was February 24. The figure was -47 lakhs. It was around 10% of my capital. Losing much more would set me back several months.

- Intelligence Quotient (IQ)
- Emotional Quotient (EQ)
- Social Quotient (SQ)
- Adversity Quotient (AQ)
1. IQ is the measure of one's ability to comprehend, solve maths; memorize things & recall subject matters.
2. EQ is the measure of your ability to maintain peace with others; keep to time; be responsible; be honest; respect boundaries; be humble, genuine, and considerate.
3. SQ is the measure of one's ability to build a network of friends & maintain it over a long period of time.
4. AQ is the measure of your ability to go through a rough patch in life and come out without losing your mind. It is a new paradigm and can be used to determine who will give up in face of troubles and may abandon their families.
Now to the very interesting & analytical part👇
People that have higher EQ & SQ tend to go further in life than those with high IQ but low EQ &SQ.
Most schools capitalize on improving IQ level while EQ & SQ are played down.
A man of high IQ can end up being employed by a man of high EQ & SQ even though he has an average IQ.
Your EQ represents your character; your SQ represents your charisma. Give in to habits that will improve these three Qs but more especially your EQ and SQ.
EQ and SQ make one manage better than the other.
Try not only to have a higher IQ but also to have higher EQ and SQ.

Next level tactic when closing a sale, candidate, or investment:— Erik Torenberg (@eriktorenberg) February 27, 2018
Ask: \u201cWhat needs to be true for you to be all in?\u201d
You'll usually get an explicit answer that you might not get otherwise. It also holds them accountable once the thing they need becomes true.
2/ First, “X” could be lots of things. Examples: What would need to be true for you to
- “Feel it's in our best interest for me to be CMO"
- “Feel that we’re in a good place as a company”
- “Feel that we’re on the same page”
- “Feel that we both got what we wanted from this deal
3/ Normally, we aren’t that direct. Example from startup/VC land:
Founders leave VC meetings thinking that every VC will invest, but they rarely do.
Worse over, the founders don’t know what they need to do in order to be fundable.
4/ So why should you ask the magic Q?
To get clarity.
You want to know where you stand, and what it takes to get what you want in a way that also gets them what they want.
It also holds them (mentally) accountable once the thing they need becomes true.
5/ Staying in the context of soliciting investors, the question is “what would need to be true for you to want to invest (or partner with us on this journey, etc)?”
Multiple responses to this question are likely to deliver a positive result.
