A step towards achieving ZEN as an investor.

Gardening not only requires patience but also understanding and accepting that some seeds are bad and will never germinate. No matter how good a gardener we are, this is something we have to accept.

As long as we have more good seeds than bad ones, we should be happy.

Everything are all similar to anything in life. It is how you choose to see them. If you think and say so, then it got to be so, it cannot be otherwise, no matter what the whole world say or do. There are no absolute right and wrong.
