..dance the body music
makes you feel so happy
dance the body music
music makes you happy
hear the music play
feel your body sway
hear the dj say
oh what a big smash big smash
dance the body music…
Osibisa, was it, late ‘70s?
What an cool swingy number, sung by an unforgettable band!
Disco beat. Rhythm. Easy peasy lyrics. Synth. Floor’s going crazy. Song’s all over the people. People are all over the song.
Why are we talking about it?
Music or euphoria?
I used the music element to paint a picture of euphoria in your mind.
What is it about euphoria?
Why does it push me on alert?
Is it that I don’t wish to enjoy my life?
What could I have against euphoria?
I’ll tell you.
Before I tell you, I’d like to mention that I love the feeling.
It fantastic being in the feeling. I’ve got one eye on my alerts though.
We make our biggest mistakes when hit by Euphoria.
Under the influence of Euphoria, our biochemistry is so, so different.
We’re far from peak.
Our defences are down.
We are highly capable of plunging into…an abyss…oblivion…call it what you feel is befitting.
We let go of safety.
We bet big.
We bet dangerous.
We bet the farm.
That’s what euphoria can do to us.
I do feel euphoric, at times.
A trade’s gone well.
A deal’s come through.
Stability at home.
…as I told you…
…one eye is on my alerts.
If even a single thought emerges of betting big, bigger than my normal size, well, my predefined red-alert also goes up with such a thought.
I see my alert’s red flare, and the unwanted thought subsides.
I am able to sick to within the confines of my position-size rule.
If even one thought emerges of trying a new untested line, just because all current lines are doing ok, well, my predefined strategy saturation alert also goes up with such a thought.
I remind myself that I’ve decided upon financial strategy saturation, and don’t plan to add a new line, at least not in a hurry or upon an impulse.
I’m able to stick to my strategy saturation decision.
Are you understanding what I’m trying to tell you?
If yes, I’m so happy for you.
You’re not leaving it for later. You’re understanding it without being hit by the aftermath of a decision taken under the influence of euphoria.
