Quotation Of The Week – Be Patient:Then Strike Hard!

First a quick reminder of what the ‘Quotation Of The Week’ award is all about:

The idea is simple: Every time I find a quotation that I think will add real value for my blogs readers, I will bookmark it and put it on my list to be the: Quotation of the Week.

I will then write a post similar to this one explaining why I have decided on that particular weeks Quotation.

I will also link to it from my Quotation of the week icon situated near the top of my side bar
My Quotation of the week award will be posted every Friday.

For a full list of previous winners visit my ‘Quotation Of The WeekPage.

This week’s winner of my ‘Quotation of the week award is:

Never seem to be in a hurry - hurrying betrays a lack of Control over yourself, and over time. Always seem patient, as if you know that everything will come to you eventually. Learn to stand back when the time is not yet ripe, and to strike fiercely when it has reached fruition. “

Posted on the Mark Iverson- Professional Sports Gambler blog.

I found this Quotation in amongst five others of a similar quality (all potential QOTW candidates)on the top of the left hand side bar on one of my favourite blogs called : Mark Iverson – Professional Sports Gambler.

The reason that I chose this particular one as my quotation of the week is because to me it sums up what I am trying to achieve with my approach to sports speculation, which is; to take my time, be patient until the perfect situation arises and then to have the courage to strike with sufficient force so as to maximise my returns. I know that on paper they look an easy skills to master, but as I (and I suspect many others ) have found, mastering the skills involved is one of the hardest things to do within our chosen discipline.

I believe that as sports speculators we must constantly work on the two aspects of the quotation above so that it becomes second nature to wait patiently for an opportunity to arise and then to be ready to strike hard and fast whenever one does.

I hope you have enjoyed this post
Stay patient
