In going back over this chapter, I find I might have judged this too hastily as overly spiritual.
Rereading it, it seems to be saying that the faith in yourself is as powerful as the "normal"
principal of spiritual faith, and this may be my absolute number one greatest problem with my trading.
On page 80, this passage hit me like a ton of bricks as crystalizing what happens when I initiate a trade.....
"A mind saturated with fear of failure or images of unwanted results, can no more accomplish, create, or
produce anything of value, than a stone can violate the laws of gravity and fly upwards in the air."
I know where this fear comes from and why, it's from my not having a profitable trading plan and here i am
trying to make a living with it anyway. But hey, just like the header to this forum say's
"Psychology and Money Management
This forum is where successful traders spend most of their time and where struggling traders never visit. The psychology and money management forum is where you learn to become a profitable day trader"....like Carl Spackler says, "at least I got that goin' for me"
so...i'm getting better
I know I am not the only one who feels this way,
oh well, i'm going over it again, and trying to pull more out of this
