I'd recommend "How the Mind Works" book by cognitive scientist Steven Pinker. The book attempts to explain some of the human mind's poorly understood functions and quirks in evolutionary terms.
Another great book is "Thinking, Fast and Slow" by Daniel Kahnema, Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics winner.

Hope that helps.

Thanks George for this valuable post. I believe in those three ways. "In order to get rid of fear of success (or whatever change you need to make) you have to neutralize that stored energy." I love this quote.

Thanks for this thread bumped on it at a great moment in my life. Currently experiencing great development as a trader and its been a month since I begun practising self-hypnosis and consequently making BIG strides.
I have discovered 95% of trading techniques put out on the internet don't really count when it comes to making a trader profitable. Conventional knowledge on trading strategies and (or) indicators, whether Technicals or fundamentals do not have a reasonable impact on a trader's development. What creates an impact is when a trader takes the knowledge and turns it upside down, meaning that the trader must take the methodologies, strategies and Tools and make them his/her own, fully own the process by being independently creative and innovative.
Doing this requires a mindset that is absolutely different from the one the trader had when he/she started learning the skill and having this mindset requires traders to work on their psychology at a subconscious level. There's no Holy Grail, Methodology, strategy and Tools. There's only ONE thing, THE TRADER!

Anyone here read Minding Hack Secrets?

Learning about focus, attention span, and priming.

Once I get my mind right, unlimited financial resources will be readily available to me.

pH and the mind....

Know your daily pH....it should be alkaline 7.4 or so and above (during the day at or above 8.0 ideally)....the mind will function well if alkaline....if your pH is below 7 (acidic) the mind and body will not function well....

Learn how to control and manage your pH....you will find an all raw vegan diet works best to promote and maintain an alkaline environment for body and mind.... lots of info on the web about pH to explore....

Also look at being grounded 24/7....see Earthing.com....this plays a big part in creating an ideal pH and so a well functioning mind and body...
