MOT #88 - Enthusiasm Brings About A Triumph

The Mind of a Trader show

Summary: Mind of a Trader has a new home! ------- The greatest victories in life rarely come from those who are sad, pessimistic or lacking enthusiasm. When we approach challenges in any area with enthusiasm, we set a new foundation that starts us off on the right foot. This does not automatically happen. We all need to decide that we are going to start changing the way we begin our trading sessions. Before we jump on our computer and look at our charts and start executing trades, take about 15 minutes to set the tone for this session. Take a few deep breaths, forget about the list of tasks that you have to deal with today, get a piece of paper and write down 1 or 2 items that you will focus on during today's trades. Once you have your mind set and your 2 items ready; say out loud "I am ready to trade". Say this with enthusiasm and then sit down and begin. You will have a new perspective on today which does not include focusing on the profit results, but instead on the process. Your trading session will have new meaning and you are now set to be triumphant in today's trades.
