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 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.

morning shower

I started this thread because though I understand intellectually visualizations power (and I am wonder at negative ones! -LOL) I seem to be block in executing positive ones.

When I wake in the morning it take me a while to shake off the negative mood (sometimes compounded by worry dreams etc). I am not easily able to move quickly to positive state.

In The Magic Word - WD Gann, he recommends chanting the magic word - stressing it is the vibration within your body that is the key. He prefers "Jehovah" (but mentions other words will work as well). For myself it has a neutral feel to it.

So in the shower I say"
"Jehovah.
I have $x million dollars.
Jehovah.
I have $x million dollars."
... repeating..

It helps me move from negative to neutral and then neutral to positive.

Good trading to everyone.

Some individuals appear to be “allergic” to honest work, but opportunity is equally allergic to them.

You may fake it for a time, pretending that you’re giving an honest effort, but eventually you will be measured by your deeds, not by your words.

If you are more of a talker than a doer, make a vow today — right now — to change your behavior. You may be able to drift through life if you never do more than you are required to do, but you will never know what you might have achieved if you had only been willing to give a little more.

The greatest opportunities always go to those who have an affinity for hard work, not an allergy to it.

Good trading to everyone.

Both success and failure are largely the results of habit!

From Napolean Hill - thought of the day email

Opportunity never sneaks up on those who straddle the fence of indecision.

Successful people are decisive people. When opportunities come their way, they evaluate them carefully, make a decision, and take appropriate action. They know that indecision wastes time that could be spent on more productive tasks. They also avoid unnecessary risks by implementing their decisions gradually. They don’t attempt to make every decision at the beginning. Each action is contingent upon the success of the one that preceded it. Benjamin Franklin, one of America’s wisest men, is said to have used a simple method to make difficult decisions. He drew a line down the center of a sheet of paper, and on one side he listed the “pros” of the decision; on the other, he listed the “cons.” In addition to simplifying the decision-making process, the list also served as a graphic illustration of the advantages and disadvantages of any decision, regardless of its complexity. The impact of the decision could then be quickly and easily assessed.

Good trading to everyone.

decisions

In trading we face them all the time.

Indecision can cost us with a late entry causing a potential profitable trade to slip negative as the juiciest part of the move we sat on the sidelines and then entered just as a retracement was starting.

Entering too early, before the setup has completed, can cost us by getting us into a trade we soon wish we hadn't entered.

Entering at just the right time is crucial to reduce the heat of a trade. We need to make decisions quickly and correctly, have confidence in our judgement, and flexibility to know when the tide has turned against us.

I think all these things require planning out our strategies clearly and definitely so we can enter
  1. only on those trades we want
  2. at just the right time - neither hesitating now jumping the gun
A fine art - a difficult craft

Good trading to everyone.

From Napolean Hill - thought of the day email

When you apply your faith in yourself, your faith in your fellow man, and your faith in God, the result is a positive course of action that when persistently followed will almost always lead to success. When you believe in your ideas and in your abilities, and you trust in the Infinite Intelligence of the universe, you know that your thoughts and deeds will ultimately lead to a successful conclusion. You cannot fail.

Good trading to everyone.

Answer
This post has been selected as an answer to the original posters question Answer

I'm a firm believer in the mantra that luck is where preparation meets opportunity. I'm also a firm believer in visualization. You have to see...and I mean clearly see, repeatedly and consistently...your positive end results. You have to make the end result happen and you must make the effort to get there.

Kyle Schwarber of the Chicago Cubs was was asked about how he came back to play, and hit well, in the World Series after missing all but a handful of the first few games this year. He called out visualization. He stood in the box and took thousands of simulated pitches from the Jugs machine. He was working on his eye and his timing. He also spent hours away from the field literally visualizing his at bats. He performed the necessary visual, physical and mental practice required to compete at the highest level.

“Visualization is a very powerful tool,” Schwarber said, “and I believe in that.”

From Napolean Hill - thought of the day email

The founder of the Piggly Wiggly grocery chain was a low-level employee in a corner grocery when he visited a cafeteria and got the idea that the same techniques could be applied to the grocery business. He was ridiculed by experts, but he was convinced that the idea was a good one. Saunders persevered, and his adaptation of the self-service idea to the grocery business led him to become the father of the modern supermarket. It is often true that a great idea alone is not enough to achieve success. Implementation may require as much as or more imagination than coming up with the idea originally. Those who study such things, however, report that when you have a really good idea, even if you can’t prove it, you will intuitively know that it is good. If you’re convinced, stick with it. Others will eventually recognize the value of your idea.

Good trading to everyone.

From Napolean Hill - thought of the day email


The going is always hard on the road to greatness. If success were easy, everyone would achieve it. NFL All-Pro lineman Brian Holloway recalled that when he was playing for the New England Patriots and the Los Angeles Raiders, there wasn’t a single day when he didn’t feel like giving up because the road was too tough and the sacrifices were too great. He didn’t quit, of course; he was willing to pay the price because he was determined to succeed.

.... Competition ... spurs them, and obstacles ... reinforce their determination to succeed.

Good trading to everyone.
