Important: Serious Preparation, Forming Habits, Knowing Yourself = Trading Well

Important: Serious Preparation, Forming Habits, Knowing Yourself = Trading Well

Enough dithering!!!

Its time to finally make a serious attempt at trading. Treating trading as a hobby has gone for too long. Its time to take this seriously enough and document the steps to take the real journey.

This is and will continue as the real story of a man who had almost nothing other than the intense desire to succeed.

Its time to finally make a serious attempt at getting funded. Treating trading as a hobby has gone for too long. Its time to take this seriously enough and document the steps to take the real journey.


You're talking to me. I'm watching with interest and wishing you well - maybe you'll even encourage me to get going again.

Changing Bad Trading Habits

Step One (if you are already trading):

1. Define habit precisely.

2. Designate time interval for your siege on the activity.

3. During this interval, try to desist completely if this is feasible.

4. Look for cues as to when you're about to engage in the habit and use them as reminders not to do so.

5. Don't judge the advisability of your resolution during your specified interval.

6. Be wary of explanations of why you broke your resolution

7. Create traumas in the mind and use them constructively.

8. Expect that at moment you may feel more annoyed with yourself than you did before deciding to break the habit.

9. Remember that if you resist the impulse, you will do more to defeat the impulse than if you don't.

Positive Affirmations for Today

My affirmations are derived from a pretty old dog-eared copy I own of Pschocybernetics by Maltz Maxwell

- About your success, “you must not wait to act until you have proof —you must act as if it’s already there and it will come through”

- Do everything you can to prepare, and then relax in the doing of it. The more you can detach yourself and your self esteem from the outcome, the better you will perform. Get out of your own way.

- Live in daytight compartments. The only time we have any power over is the present moment…don’t waste time worrying about the past or future; do the things you need to do right now to heal the past or prepare for the future.

- Happiness is a choice. Your progress may be difficult or discouraging…but your attitude can make those circumstances worse or better. You always have a choice about how you react.

- Most important: Be willing to make a few mistakes and suffer a little pain, to get what you want. Bring courage to your life and trading, do the hard thing, be vulnerable, and take a risk for something if this something you really care about.

This week, commit to watching how the process of giving in to your impulses happens. see if you can catch yourself earlier and earlier in the process noticing what thoughts feelings and situations are most likely to prompt the impulse.

Why you succeed or fail at trading can sometimes seem like a mystery. one day you resist and the next you succumb to rule-breaking"What was I thinking?"
If you allow yourself to observe your BODY you discover that self control is a matter of physiology not psychological-control

If you can shift your physiology into a state when you need your willpower the most - the state of both mind and body that gives you strength and calm to override your impulses
