The recursive paradox of self-determination or: If you lack the skills to trade, then trade to acquire the skills you lack

I ask for strength,

trading presents obstacles to make me strong;

I ask for wisdom,

trading provokes my critical thoughts;

I ask for courage,

trading challenges me with it’s risk and uncertainty;

I ask for patience,

trading puts me in situations where I am forced to wait;

I ask for discipline,

trading tests my resolve and determination;

I ask for prosperity,

trading gives me the opportunity to profit;

I may not get everything I ask for,

yet, trading gives me everything I need.

    Trading does not provide “everything [you] need,” even in the most halcyon of circumstances and markets, and the poem is inauthentic in its last couplet as a result.

    I may not get everything I ask for,

    yet, trading gives me an opportunity to receive everything I need.
