Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

From ep1

You were born with a control mechanism in you.
The control mechanism in you was initially programmed by others (parents, older siblings, teachers etc)
The control mechanism will determine whether you win or lose, whether you live in abundance or poverty.
You can reprogram the control mechanism, but the choice is up to you.

[You must take the effort and do it, not intellectual understand that it exists, but build the new program and re-program yourself. It requires repetition to enter the program just as many repetitions were used to enter the initial program.]

[=my words]

Good trading to everyone.

From Napolean Hill - thought of the day email

When you work with others, concentrate on their positive attributes, not on the things they dislike or fear. When you take the time to get to know your associates, to learn about their hopes, dreams, and aspirations, you can determine what motivates them. You can then show them how they can align their goals with yours to work together for your mutual advantage. When you do, everybody wins.

Good trading to everyone.

Doing things without knowing why


Bob was doing things without knowing why he was doing them and getting results he didn't want to get. And he and other didn't know why he was doing these things; the program was controlling his actions.

How many times have we done things we know we shouldn't do (or we know better) eg. "chase the trade" and can't figure out we we did it. We know better, but we keep doing it. Why?

Good trading to everyone.

I have worked with some of the most brilliant people in the world and I have found out you and I are programmed.
If you don't learn to change the program [and take the steps to change the program] nothing is going to happen.
You see most people wouldn't even think of changing the programming.
The program controls the thinking.

No one sold $5M of insurance because no one had ever done it.
Because no one had ever done something is a good reason to do it.

Take some steps each day to change your program.

"Lines"
I am worthy of great financial success.
Each day I see myself financially successful more and more clearly.
I see myself with $x million in my hands now. It is real.
I am now living the wonderful life I have envisioned in my mind

Good trading to everyone.

BAM! That is your "mic drop" right there. 'Nuff said.

In fact, that is kinda' like what Apple did in 1984.

I have been listening to the Bob Proctor videos on youtube (first one)
1. Paradigm Shift Bob Proctor - Winning vs. Losing - Ep. 1

--------------
As I listen I have been taking notes - like a transcript of all the key points. The process involves listening and re-listening to the same episode over and over again - editing the notes and adding in bits I have missed. I seem to catch more each time through.
A result of this repetitive listening seems to be:
  • feeling more positive
  • ideas for making money seem to be flowing to me.
  • interesting positive things happening - people providing resources, information and so on to assist my progress
  • taking action on things right away - not just "making a note for later"

Good trading to everyone.

Here is a visualization that I have been working on over the past few months, inspired by this thread. It starts off with a visualization of stoic emotions and control in the face of volatility, then to purging of negative emotions, to indifference to outcome. My team comes in to help with the harvest, everyone is thanked and rewarded, then we share in the bounty:
On the seashore, a boulder on the beach washed by waves, does not move, anchored deeply to bedrock, water is neither hot not cold, no feeling of temperature or anything, waves go out, carrying with them everything that needs to be let go of, fear, anger, greed, envy and restenment and other stuff that the rock desires never to give up, and the the surf grinds all that stuff down into very fine white sand, shaped like tiny zeroes, zeroing it all out. Noting left but a beach full of white sand zeroes. The tide then comes back in and takes another load of stuff out, and again and again.

Eventually the tide washes back in with a single 10000 yen banknote, which lands on the rock and sticks to the rock like a piece of seaweed, while the tide keeps going back out and coming back int.

The adored youngest daughter runs up and gleefully peels the pretty banknote off the rock and runs to hang it up to dry on seeweed drying racks on the seashore. Soon many, many more of these notes are washing up with each tide, and they form a tangled mass on the beach.

All the family, womenfolk, and A-list friends join in gleefully to pick the shore and hang the banknotes to dry. Then the little girls drive up in a big red farm produce truck and load the hopper with dried notes. They doing somersaults on the pile of money in the truck. Then it goes to the workshop where it's all dumped, onto the meticulous white epoxy floor, then is shoveled into the hopper on the cleaning machine.

Then the womenfolk wear white glves and smocks and count the money in overworked money counting machines and band it and stack it on a big palette. I come and record the final tally on my clipboard, then shrinkwrap the palette of money with clear plastic and forklift it through the circular door on my large walk-in safe, stacking it with the other palettes of money. I toss a banded million-yen bundle that's been set aside to each person on the team.

Then we all go outside into the the festively decorated garden to a barbecue party with life music. I man the barbecue in a big chef's hat, and I roast a pig on a spit. We have a long table and I sit a the head of it and toast the whole party with a speech of gratitude for the contributions of everyone.

From Napolean Hill - thought of the day email


Your own mental attitude is your real boss.

While your time and your labor may be subject to the demands of your employer and others, your mind is the one thing that cannot be controlled by anyone but you. The thoughts you think, your attitude toward your job, and what you are willing to give in exchange for the compensation you are paid are entirely up to you. It is up to you to determine whether you will be a slave to a negative attitude or the master of a positive one. Your attitude, your only master in life, is entirely within your control. When you control your attitude toward events, you control the eventual implication of those events.

Good trading to everyone.
