... I learned what it felt like to trade and win in a string, ride the market surf. The take-away, was the feeling.
That experience cannot be measured.
Now that i know what it feels like
I have not only the confidence that it can be done but the experience of feeling it.

Hi Don,

I think you have been given a rare gift with this experience.

Currently, I have trouble creating the visualization of myself being in the zone. It would be so much easier if I had had a day like yours. I appreciate you sharing this experience with the board, and so by extension, with me. I am going to take what you have shared and try again to create a visualization for myself of being in the zone.

"The bible makes it plain that whatever you imaging, you can do. If you cannot make a mental picture of a thing you cannot create it. ....but if you can imagine and visualize a thing you can make dreams come true."
-W. D. Gann, The Magic Word

"Anything the human mind can believe, the human mind can achieve."
-Napolean Hill, Grow Rich with Peace of Mind

"If you can dream it you can do it"
-wall hanging.

Keep your mind in the future, in the now.
