I am starting this as a morning appreciation journal, not just for myself, but for everyone.

I learned from my primary spiritual teacher that appreciation is the most powerful force in existence.... it changes not just our perceptions and feelings, but the outcomes and the manifestations as well.

So please, feel free to post with me on this thread 3 things that you appreciate or are grateful for every morning before trading.
They can be simple things or complex things, specific things or general things... whatever makes you feel good inside.

To get the ball rolling, here are 3 things that I appreciate / am grateful for this morning:

#1. An important personal situation got resolved very recently and I am really happy for that.
#2. The sun is SO bright outside, makes me feel so good.
#3. Petting the 2 dogs as I start my trading day feels just awesome!!!!

Hi there buddy,

Nice initiative! I'm grateful for the following things in no particular order:
a) For an awesome family!
b) God has been kind to me in every aspect of my life, if you're an atheist then not to hurt your sentiments, I'd say I'm grateful for everything that has come across my way, because the ups and downs in my life has taught me many lessons, in other words the experiences have lead to what I am now.
c) For the unlimited opportunities that await for me(us) everyday I wake-up!

Good Luck to you all!

Another awesome day, the sun is shining (in Cancun anyway, haha), and here are 3 things that make me smile:

#1) I am surrounded by 3 wonderful people in my life right now, and I am really grateful for all of them
#2) Karen Souza!!!! I love listening to her Essentials album while trading
#3) I am ALIVE... that counts, especially since I survived Covid-19. The skin is healing more every day. I no longer look like a hyena from the Lion King. lol

YOUR TURN!
What makes YOU smile this morning?

Have a great day trading guys (GALS??)!

Wow.... thank you for your kind words Johnny, you and your input is also much appreciated! I hope we can create more positive energy daily on FIO... feeling great really does translate into better trading decisions.

I also want to thank everybody else who is posting on this thread, you know who you are (mykee, Sam...etc.).

I read long time ago: "Fear is expensive, love is priceless, choose wisely." I chew on that one every day.

Missed the first day of this thread (forgive me) so here are those.....
  1. Trading is now: simple AND easy.... where it used to be: simple NOT easy.
  2. The sum total of ALL creation
  3. Ancient Eternity

Well, I'm a bit late to the party, however, better late than never...

#1) I'm happy that I'm healthy, and my wife and my family and friends are healthy as well.
#2) I'm happy that I'm allowed to trade for a living, which for me is the best job I can imagine...and without having a boss (except my wife ).
#3) I'm looking forward to live a good and safe life together with my wife and family, and continue travelling to other countries having a good time.

I am eternally grateful to the woman who loves me.

I am equally grateful to our children, who have grown into wonderful and decent grown-ups whose work benefits their communities.

Finally, I am graced by the place I live -- Missoula, Montana -- a natural wonderland of rivers and mountains and the people who love them. My community of rock/ice climbers and whitewater boaters are the best partners a person could have as we test ourselves in the glorious outdoors.

Thanks to all of you who have been participating, for your lovely responses.

Saturday. The markets are closed, but the Universe is open. So here are 3 things that I am appreciating right now:

#1 - I slept in for an hour, I feel AWESOME.
#2 - My favorite cup says: "THE BEST IS YET TO COME!". I love this cup and I enjoy its message every day.
#3 - I needed to hear from someone and got a message from them this morning, so I am happy about that

Have great Saturday and post your own thoughts of appreciation for others to enjoy as well.

Good Morning, futures.io traders...

Stuff I'm thankful for:

1) Having the Perseverence to weather all the ups and downs, knowing I can eventually succeed
2) Having the insight to know what is holding me back from being better.
3) Knowing that it doesn't matter if all doors to success seem closed, all I need is to find one that opens.

Cheers!

This morning I feel like RW shouting in GOOD MORNING VIETNAM!

I am grateful for:
#1 ENERGY - I woke up earlier, had an awesome HOT shower, enjoying every bit of it. I seemed to have gotten my energy back post-covid, feels AWESOME.
#2 Reading Joe Dispenza's book "Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself". I think the title is a bit mis-named, but I am loving every page.... calling me to be my Best and Highest Self.
#3 The yellow bush and the signing birds outside my window... lovely.

What are YOU loving today????

I am grateful that my daughter talk to me and ask for my advice.
I am grateful that I can buy my kids the drinks that they like.
I am grateful that my wife gave me a kiss before she goes to work.

In life, we take many little things for granted. I am glad that @Anagami started this thread, so we can remind our-self not to take things for granted. Thank you.

Good Morning Traders! Here are 3 things that I feel tremendous appreciation for right now:

#1 - It's a MONDAY!!! ... which takes me directly to the 2nd point
#2 - Thank you Universe / God for making me a day trader, for this wonderful work, for being able to do something I love every day, for enjoying this interesting game
#3 - last night I fired up the music of John Michael Talbot. I am not a Catholic, but I love it anyway, the pure, positive energy of this music. I went to his 'concert' years ago. As he got up on stage, I got up from my seat, approached him, shook his hand and said: "Father, I am a Buddhist, but I love your music." He looked stunned, didn't know what to say. Very funny. When I got back to my seat, the people asked me: "What did you say to him?". "It's a secret," I said with a wink. lol

Have an AWESOME day guys!

You are my friend.

When we flow appreciation consistently, we feel great, we trade better, we are happy, things work out so much better, and life is just... SO GOOD.

If we did nothing all day but counted our blessings, we would all live glorious, fulfilling lives.

And so, I will continue to be an Apostle of Good Energy. Some time ago, I realized that is my life purpose (what is yours?)... and this is the way it expresses itself on FIO.

Yes, it's a shot of the foothills just south of Long's Peak. Believe it or not this was before all the fires. As John Denver aptly sang "Colorado Rocky Mountain High, I've seen it raining fire from the sky."

I am deeply, humbly, and appreciatively grateful, with all my being, to coffee.

I am grateful for my dog, even though he is a pain in the ass this morning, as on most days.

I am grateful I can read stuff on this forum that actually makes sense and that lets me learn a thing or two.

But mainly, I am really grateful for coffee.

Good Morning Traders! What makes you feel GREAT today? (OR what WOULD make you feel great, IF you wanted to focus on it???)

#1 - Every morning when I open my eyes, I say to the Universe / God: "Thank you for my life". I don't take that for granted. Heck, especially not in Mexico. lol
#2 - Instead of my usual morning meditation, I did this Joe Dispenza meditation. Love it. Seeing and really FEELING the desire outcomes BEFORE they happen is not some New Age mumbo-jumbo. It has a strong scientific basis.
#3 - I just feel happy that I can spend another FUN-tastic day doing what I love. Thank you Universe, for making me a day trader.

Please join us! What do you appreciate right now? What makes you feel happy? What great things will you focus on today????

#3 - a day ahead filled with laughter, food, jokes, and having a great time

I’ve been feeling pretty negative over the past week due to work & trading pressure but I got through that temporary chaos and things are going well.

Things I am thankful for today:

1: Waking up healthy, went for a run yesterday and it was great.

2: Had an insight last night that I’ve been trading in a cycle that begins with high-determination, careful scrutiny, and embracing risk, but after a few winners drifts into risk-aversion, lower confidence, and sloppy entries that exhibit low-risk but low-probability as well. I suffer losses and i reset back to the beginning of the cycle.
My next task is to learn to circumvent or short-circuit the risk-averse part of the cycle by constantly “resetting”

So I’m thankful for this introspection.

3: Thankful that I’m getting back to regular meditation

4: thankful for the members of FIO who have helped me tremendously.

I found this thread when I saw Anagami comment on a different thread (something about the types of meditation), and I thought "what a positive guy, let me see what hes up to on this board", and here I am.

Things I am thankful for:

1. Having built a life where I work for myself from home (not just trading, really just starting this adventure in the last year. But for the last decade in my profession working for myself, home or whereever I may be). Because of this besides the freedom, it really helped this last year and while my heart goes out to those who have really taken the brunt of the pandemic, I dont loose sight of the fact that Im extremely thankful for the ability to work from home and for myself, and not have the stress of losing a job.

2. My 2 dogs. Both are 11, and I have no kids or relationship (both by choice ) so having some creatures in my life since Im an animal person is great. As well they are the reason I get out of the house some times, walk them and take a break from the computer.

3. A beautiful sunny summer day again. I moved back to Canada after 20 years in the US, and while both have their pros and cons, with Canada having much more seasons than Phoenix/Vegas, you really appreciate the summer because winter is just a few months away.

Good morning guys!

What shall I appreciate today? There is such a sea of good things surrounding us!!!

#1 - Still 'recovering' from yesterday's bday party for the gf. We had an awesome time, did so many things. The intention to give her the best bd ever was a MASSIVE SUCCESS!!
#2 - Vivir Mi Vida ("To Live My Life") - the song starts about 1:15 into the video. ENJOY.
#3 - A quiet morning, I breathe in and breathe out... and I feel happy.

Have a great Friday!!

I am grateful that I have great relationship with my sister. Even though we live in different cities, we talk to each other almost daily.

I am grateful that my daughter help me with the dishes today.

I am grateful that my younger sister's baby is cute and healthy. Seeing her smile really melts my heart.

Thank you for joining us brother, feel free to post daily in this thread about the wonderful things in your life that make you feel uplifted. :tee2:
As we uplift others, we uplift ourselves. As we uplift ourselves, we uplift others.

I am considering moving back to Canada myself (after 6 years of dividing my time between Mexico and Thailand), as that may potentially be better suited to fulfilling my life purpose at this time.

I really appreciate your feedback, Johnny! Let's keep it going. When trading, it is so important to feel good, and to trade out of a place of fullness and abundance. Nobody really mentions these factors, but they affect one's performance in a big way! When we feel great, we trade well. The same goes for the rest of our lives. Our energy affects everything around us!

What a beautiful morning today.... What awesome things are we going to choose to think about and feel right now?

#1 - Yesterday afternoon I got some post-covid exhaustion, just zero energy, collapsed in the bed. I slept about 4 hours, but then I was Ok, even had enough in the gas tank to work out later. THANK YOU UNIVERSE / GOD for my returning energy. Even when there are setbacks sometimes, blessings follow after them!!! I am ALIVE!! How cool is that?????? And what wonderful things can I do with the time given me on this Earth????
#2 - Here is my absolute favorite CD that I like to listen to every day: 80s Vintage Reggae. Amazing... so soothing.
#3 - I appreciate and love my FIO friends. Let's continue on this path together. We can be happy, make a living doing what we love, and share and grow together so many blessings surrounding us.

Today I'm thankful for:

1) Technology of all kinds. It's very easy to take for granted having internet, smart phones, trading software, wifi, etc. I didn't grow up with any of it, and was a young adult when the internet was just becoming something. I did dialup, bbs' etc. The ability to do what we do is relatively new to the human race in the big scheme of things.
2) A drama free, peaceful life. Life is so much more smooth sailing when toxic people and situations aren't involved.
3) Self reflection and foward thinking. I find myself more and more thinking about my life, places I've visited or lived, people I've met, old friends, etc. I also put myself back to those times, say 5, 10, 20 years ago and at those points wouldn't have imagined all the great experiences to come. It also makes me excited for the future, whats in store. I highly suspect 10 years from now it'll be the same, looking back to 2020 and thinking I had no idea what life had in store for me.

Have a GREAT weekend!

On this gorgeous morning, I feel like flowing my appreciation towards WW (That's Walt Whitman , not Walter White lol). Whitman was an amazing man, with a profound feeling for life and a deep understanding of human condition.

Here are some of my favorite quotes from the Leaves of Grass that I use to nourish my Spirit at times. I prefer the 1855 edition. I don't have my copy with me (waiting for me in Thailand), so I am forced to scrape quotes online:

#1 - "Do I contradict myself? Very well then I contradict myself, I am large, I contain multitudes."

#2 - "I exit as I am, that is enough."

#3 - "A morning-glory at my window satisfies me more than the metaphysics of books."

#4 - As a tribute to Breaking Bad:
"When I heard the learn’d astronomer;
When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me;
When I was shown the charts and the diagrams, to add, divide, and measure them;
When I, sitting, heard the astronomer, where he lectured with much applause in the
lecture-room,
How soon, unaccountable, I became tired and sick;
Till rising and gliding out, I wander’d off by myself,
In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time,
Look’d up in perfect silence at the stars."

#5 - "Stop this day and night with me and you shall possess the origin of all poems,
You shall possess the good of the earth and sun.... there are millions of suns left,
You shall no longer take things at second or third hand.... nor look through the eyes of the dead.... nor feed on the spectres in books,
You shall not look through my eyes either, nor take things from me,
You shall listen to all sides and filter them from yourself."

#6 - "There was never any more inception than there is now,
Nor any more youth or age than there is now;
And will never be any more perfection than there is now,
Nor any more heaven or hell than there is now."

#7 - "Clear and sweet is my soul . . . . and clear and sweet is all that is not my soul."

#8 "I believe in you my soul . . . . the other I am must not abase itself to you,
And you must not be abased to the other.
Loafe with me on the grass . . . . loose the stop from your throat,
Not words, not music or rhyme I want . . . . not custom or lecture, not even the best,
Only the lull I like, the hum of your valved voice. "

#9 - "What do you think has become of the young and old men?
And what do you think has become of the women and children?
They are alive and well somewhere;
The smallest sprout shows there is really no death,
And if ever there was it led forward life, and does not wait at the end to arrest it,
And ceased the moment life appeared.
All goes onward and outward . . . . and nothing collapses,
And to die is different from what any one supposed, and luckier. "

#10 - "To behold the daybreak!
The little light fades the immense and diaphanous shadows,
The air tastes good to my palate."


I feel like I cheapen Whitman by quoting him, and that's the last thing that I want to do, so I will stop now. You can read the whole 1855 edition online, if you have the heart for it.

PS Ok, last one

"I believe in the flesh and the appetites;
Seeing, hearing, feeling, are miracles, and each part and tag of me is a miracle.
Divine am I inside and out, and I make holy whatever I touch or am touch’d from;
The scent of these arm-pits, aroma finer than prayer;
This head more than churches, bibles, and all the creeds."

I am grateful for

1) The clear morning and beautiful sun rays that woke me up today!
2) The opportunity to engage the markets today and learn something new.
3) The potential to make a living on my own terms.

Morning Traders! Here are 3 things that I appreciate right now!

#1 - Monday... is still my FAVORITE day by far. A week ahead filled with many adventures, in the market and outside.
#2 - Did some mantra work last night with my gf before falling asleep, with some powerful results! I love stuff that works!!! Hare Krishna! Here is a study of Maha Mantra's effects on the brain.
#3 - I so look forward to watching price action today.... I always miss it on the weekends

What wonderful things are you appreciating in your life????

I am grateful for the other members of this forum

I am grateful that we can get along together and work toward our separate but very similar goals, and can help each other

I may have mentioned coffee before, but I am constantly grateful for that....

---------------------

I am actually getting to like this thread, which I sort of regarded as simply rah-rah happy talk in the beginning.

Bob.

haha I think now is a great opportunity to clarify what appreciation / gratefulness is.

It is not about ignoring reality. It is, however, about channeling one's focus in a positive way, in a constructive way.

When we appreciate, we do not ignore the things that are not currently working as we would like them to be. But, we choose to direct our focus to things that are working, that put us in a positive state of mind... so that there is a greater chance of success, of feeling good, of operating from a place of empowerment, happiness, and our Greater Self.

One of my spiritual teachers once said: "In optimism, there is magic. In pessimism, there is nothing." I think of that daily.

A quick and an imperfect explanation, but I hope this was helpful.

#1 - I am heading to the airport to fly to Miami in a couple of hours. I thought I was gonna trade the open, but I won't, too focused on the trip... and I don't wanna trade with my mind elsewhere (we all know how that tends to end up haha)
#2 - what new things will I experience today? I have never been to Miami, looking forward to exploring the South Beach.
#3 - this thread is taking off, I am really enjoying reading the posts when I wake up!! I appreciate all of you who share with us the good things in your life!!

Have an awesome day guys!!

Enjoy your trip to Miami.

I've stayed there for a week last year in October. South Beach is just amazing, and don't miss to stop by at Moreno's Bar on Collins Avenue, they have the very best cocktails around there...

I think I will point out something about thanking other people, which is part of appreciating them.

When I joined this forum, I was impressed by something @Big Mike wrote about using the Thanks button, when others took the time to help you or said something you liked, just to thank them for it.

If you look at my number of "Thanks," I have received a few, but compare that to the number I have given, which is way more.

I meant all of them, too.

It's what makes the world go round.

Bob.

1. I'm thankful pro sports are back. I'm not a super die hard, but I enjoy watching and its 1 step towards normalcy.
2. I'm thankful Vegas is in doing well in the NHL playoffs, I claimed them as my team back when they were first announced. Makes it more fun to watch.
3. I'm thankful for a healthy life. So many people, friends, family have some issue, whether its physical or mental. I've made it through life with basically no health issues, and it does make life all the more easy. Also a good reminder to stay in good health.

Here I am, waking up in Miami.
The itch to trade is there, and I need to remind myself that the crazy market will still be there when I come back.

#1. I am grateful I made it safe here yesterday. The Miami Airport looked like a ghost town... South Beach is a lot better, most places are open.
#2. Looks like free public transport around town, so I can do lot of exploring easy.
#3. So many possibilities today....

Have an awesome day guys!

I know...

It's located opposite from The Shore Club, 1901 Collins Avenue, near 18th street if I remember correctly...
And it's close to Maxim's Bistro and restaurant (where they have great and not too expensive food around the clock).

And btw, don't rent a car, the parking fees in Miami will cost you more than your entire stay.

There are many public buses available, every few minutes they'll take you for $2.50 from South Beach to South Pointe, Downtown Miami and to Biscayne Blvd. and Bayfront Center as well as to other destinations ...

Free transportation (Collins Express) works only during a few hours.

Another great place for shopping and dining is on Lincoln Road...which is not as long as Collins Ave.

Sweet I am at 17th.

Miami suspended all public transit fares un response to covid, so it's all a free ride.

I checked out Lincoln yesterday already. There was a bookshop there I wanted to see (I'm a nerd haha), but it closed down.

'Usual' might not be the right word...perhaps 'more carefree' or 'livelier' would describe it better, as it has been last year in October...
And my life has been quite a nice rollercoaster so far, but I wouldn't change anything, even if I could...

Morning Traders!
Right now, I appreciate...

#1 - the Miami vibe - this city smells of money, I love it. If I were an American with $5+ mil, I know where I would live.
#2 - re-reading Taleb's awesome book 'Antifragile'. So much insight... and very entertaining.
#3 - more exploration today, will make up mind over morning coffee what places I will hit up today

What's cooking at your end, guys?

For the first one...visit Fisher Island, there you can get an appartement for just $5M, it's a bargain, but only today

For the second one...go to Miami Bayfront and take a speedboat ride. It's a yellow boat (or rocket? ) called 'Thriller', it's an awesome experience even if you are wet like after a swim when you're back at the pier...

Mrs. wldman and I went to a co-ed rec league softball triple header last night. Our neighbors invited us. All six teams hung out until the lights went out. This reminded me of the America of my youth. Hope springs Eternal.



Know then thyself, presume not God to scan;
The proper study of Mankind is Man.
Plac'd on this isthmus of a middle state,
A being darkly wise, and rudely great:
With too much knowledge for the Sceptic side,
With too much weakness for the Stoic's pride,
He hangs between; in doubt to act, or rest,
In doubt to deem himself a God, or Beast;
In doubt his Mind or Body to prefer,
Born but to die, and reas'ning but to err;
Alike in ignorance, his reason such,
Whether he thinks too little, or too much:
Chaos of Thought and Passion, all confus'd;
Still by himself, abus'd, or disabus'd;
Created half to rise, and half to fall;
Great lord of all things, yet a prey to all;
Sole judge of Truth, in endless Error hurl'd:
The glory, jest, and riddle of the world!
Go, wond'rous creature! mount where Science guides,
Go, measure earth, weigh air, and state the tides;
Instruct the planets in what orbs to run,
Correct old Time, and regulate the Sun;
Go, soar with Plato to th' empyreal sphere,
To the first good, first perfect, and first fair;
Or tread the mazy round his follow'rs trod,
And quitting sense call imitating God;
As Eastern priests in giddy circles run,
And turn their heads to imitate the Sun.
Go, teach Eternal Wisdom how to rule—
Then drop into thyself, and be a fool!
— Epistle II, lines 1-30

-Alexander Pope

For fun, I did look at Fisher Island condos.

Lovely, only I keep thinking that I can get something comparable in Thailand for 95% less... (and that Thailand beats US for most people as a place to live, is somewhat axiomatic)

Well, sometimes I think they are just rolling the dice in order to get any price as a result, because sometime someone will come along and buy it anyway...

And I agree, Thailand is extremely beautiful as well. I've been to Bangkok and Koh Samui Island...but that was a long time ago.

And I agree, Thailand is extremely beautiful as well. I've been to Bangkok and Koh Samui Island...but that was a long time ago.

So let me reciprocate with a tip. If you go again (when it's open to travel, in a couple of years lol), head straight to Koh Chang from the airport. Still Thailand's best kept secret, it's like Thailand was 30 years ago, unspoiled natural beauty, not over-developed, with still smiling and welcoming locals.

Hello traders, today I am thankful for:

1) Good Health of loved ones, pets, and myself.

2) Coffee and Trading Homework. It was a very long week and I always look forward to Saturday mornings with coffee and trading studies. It makes me happy that I enjoy doing the work to become successful and that it isn't all just about grinding to make money.

3) Futures.io. Thank you to the many individuals who are helping eachother reach their goals.

Cheers!

Today I'm thankful for:

1. Shakespeare. I've read several plays this last 6 months, ones you were forced to read in high school (Twelfth Night, Macbeth, Hamlet, A Midsummers Night's Dream for a few), and as an adult I have an appreciation for the plays, and enjoy the challenge of figuring out what on earth is being said.

2. Podcasts. We live in a world where so much information and knowledge is easily accessible and from anywhere you are

3. Mondays. If you had told me long ago I'd look forward to Monday so you can "work", no way I would believe it.

I re-read Hamlet as an adult and loved it.

Sadly, it's Labor Day this Monday.

This morning, I find myself appreciating:
#1 - Over the Edge of the World - a fantastic book about Magellan and his circumnavigation of the globe
#2 - pizza from yesterday
#3 - cloudy today, a nice change after many days of sun

And you?

Can't agree more, I never thought that I ever, ever would say or even think something like that...

I'm thankful for economy finally starting to opening up in my country after covid lockdowns.
I'm thankful for all my family members displayed sensible behaviour so far and took necessary preacautions instead of shrugging off my warning of covid seriousness since Feb
I'm thankful for not having to move around in this critical period for any reason unlike many other people.

Today:

Morning Beautiful People! What great things in YOUR life are you happy about?

1) Back in Cancun, baby! - the trip to Miami was great, but home is home. And I got such a great welcome from friends / family.... Laughing and smiling since I've been back with the gang.

2) Back to trading - I feel great and READY TO ROLL. What a blessing!!

3) Magic Murray - "ARE YOU SERIOUS???" - I love this guy, keeps me laughing a long time. The best ones, IMO, are the cop pranks.

Have an AMAZING day everyone. Remember: THIS day will never come back again. CARPE DIEM.
