The bouncing ball is an interesting subject of analysis specially if we include a little physics into it.
Almost everybody, at some point of in their lives, has experienced a bounced moment.
May it be in your business, career, relationship, playing a poker or simply playing your favorite computer games.
wait woot? You don’t play computer games?
Oh sige, if you’re not into computer games kahit anong sports nalang!
Those moments when we shout…
My second most favorite subject during school years is Physics. Second only to Religious education.
Yes, you read it right. Religious education #numbawan.
Back in a days, we don’t normally discuss the physics of bouncing ball too much as it fairly obvious what is happening.
In the perfect environment, any “rigid” object is expected to bounce.
Are you rigid? **drum roll in the background
So here’s the law governing why ball bounce.
Newton’s second law of motion.
The second law pertains to the behavior of objects for which all existing forces are not balanced, that the acceleration of an object is dependent upon two variables – the net force acting upon the object and the mass of the object in which the acceleration of an object depends directly upon the net force acting upon the object, and inversely upon the mass of the object.
Ok let me put it this way…
In a simple way.
Newtown’s second law states: In every action there’s equal and opposite reaction.
If I were to choose, I want our Philippines stock market to follow the newton’s second law.
It will rebound off the floor at speed and altitude in proportional to how fast or high it was thrown.
Thank God our market doesn’t follow the law of physics. Because if it does, the market would be boring. Sometimes Physics can be boring too. Everything is predictable.
Like who want to have a market that looks like this.
You will be a billionaire in no time.
Human beings are not immune to suffering and hardship. At some point in our lives, we will likely to experience the pain of loss, hurt, or trauma. Life is tough and that is given. When you stand up you’d going to held back down. When you’re down you’d going to be step on.
But as humans, we have no other options but to be resilient. Stand up and patch up our clothes and get back up as fast as we can.
That’s how winners are made.
As what my business mentor once told me.
When you bounce, make sure you bounce higher. And it cannot be done if you are bounded by the law of Physics.
So even if the market does not bounce with the same altitude and speed. Make sure you enjoy those little gain of yours when you hit that bounce trade you’re waiting for so long.
