My guest today is Colin O’Brady, an American professional endurance athlete, motivational speaker, and adventurer. He is a former professional triathlete, representing the United States on the ITU Triathlon World Cup circuit, racing in 25 countries on six continents from 2009 to 2015. Colin is a four-time world record holder. In 2016 he set the Explorers Grand Slam (Last Degree) and Seven Summits speed records, the latter of which has since been broken. He became the fastest person to complete the adventurer’s challenges in 139 days and 131 days respectively. In the summer of 2018, he set the speed record for the 50 US High Points in 21 days. On December 26, 2018, he completed a solo crossing of the land mass of Antarctica, excluding the ice shelves, using the South Pole Traverse (SPoT) vehicle road during the last 366 miles (589 km) of the journey.

The topic is his book The 12-Hour Walk: Invest One Day, Conquer Your Mind, and Unlock Your Best Life.

“I’ll jump the gun because it’s close or I’ll get in late because I missed it…”

Feedback in:

My biggest challenge is following my entry and exit strategy. I’ll jump the gun because it’s close or I’ll get in late because I missed it. Then I’ll have a run of wins and can’t exit a loser because I think I’m right, generally it does eventually turn around but I’ve added positions the whole way down and am overleveraged to ride out before it comes back. Or I’ll take a few small losses and can’t exit eventually because I’m convinced it’s gonna go. But it has been rejected and it’s a reversal now but I ride it out to blow my account up. And then of course I have trouble riding the trend until a proper exit because after fucking around so much on some entries or I’m past my goals or I’m overleveraged for a scalp, I figure I’ve been right so many times, why not this one too, I get out too small or it bounces right there and I ride out a huge drawdown to a major loss.

“Investing in stocks is a long journey, not a jump in and out…”

Feedback in:

The biggest challenge I have in trading is establishing and sticking to a successful process. While on active duty in the US Navy I took night classes trying to understand markets stocks valuation and such. I believe I have a usable level of knowledge but I have doubted myself and spent countless hours and dollars trying to follow professionals. Sitting here now, at 64 years of age, it has finally dawned on me that investing in stocks is a long journey, not a jump in and out every time a new guru comes out with the super secretive process.

Thanks again.

“You seem to not be a fan of day trading…”

Feedback in:

I day trade futures for 2 hours in the morning. You seem to not be a fan of day trading. Would your trend following course just not help with that?

Alexx A.

Trend following allows you to not watch during market hours and it offers a different return stream than what you have now. Trend following also has much more historical proof than day trading.
