Some of the authors and their quotes/poems that have inspired a TradersCALM coach, or continue to do so, include:
"Trade what you see, not what you think."
"The commonly held statistic is that only 10% of traders are profitable.
What most don't realize is that only 10% of that 10% win consistently
and are proud of their return. That means only 1% of all traders win
big consistently! To join this elite club, it is obvious that you have
to be doing something different than the other 99%."
THE ROAD NOT TAKEN
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
"What we see depends mainly on what we look for."

"We are not what we know. We are what we are willing to learn."
"The place God calls you to is the place where your deep
gladness and the world's deep hunger meet."
by an unknown author
When things go wrong as they sometimes will.
When the road youíre trudging seems all up hill.
When funds are low and the debts are high.
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh.
When care is pressing you down a bit.
Rest, if you must, but donít you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns.
As everyone of us sometimes learns.
And many a failure turns about.
When he might have won had he stuck it out:
Donít give up though the pace seems slow Ė
You may succeed with another blow.
Success is failure turned inside out Ė
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt
And you never can tell how close you are.
It may be near when it seems so far:
So stick to the fight when youíre hardest hit Ė
Itís when things seem worst that you must not quit.
Henry B. Adams
"A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops."
by an unknown author
"The steady drip fills the bucket. Its action can automatically provide
an abundant supply."
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us.
We ask ourselves:
Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small doesn't serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people
won't feel insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It is not just in some of us; it's in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other
people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our fears, our presence
automatically liberates others."
Used by Nelson Mandela in his 1994 inaugural speech.
"Let the waters settle. You will see stars and moon
mirrored in your being."
