Here's the deal... I've been seriously under performing for about 2 years now... there are many excuses I can make as to why I wasn't performing at the levels I use to and know I can, but I'm not going to even waste a letter on that because that would mean I am not in control.
Until not long ago I was drifting through life, moving from one goal to another without achieving any of them but that all changes when I decided that I was sick and tired of living life like a sissy.
The best thing I did was wake up and said f**k this, I am done living month to month (being broke), I am sick of watching others succeed and not having the life I want.
I decided to TAKE CONTROL of my outcomes and take RESPONSIBILITY for my failures and achievements.
Taking control was a total game changer and I haven't looked back for a second.
Aside from my trading results improving, the quality of my life and all areas within it started rising dramatically and all I had to do was take complete control.
It sounds simple, but the thing that clicked for me was when I started reviewing all my weaknesses and mistakes, then I found what I had to control to be better...
In trading I listed all my mistakes, the things that are preventing me from achieving my goals, which is to earn BIG money in the markets... $20,000+ a month big.
The mistakes were as common as yours, over-trading, over-exposure, poor risk management, stacking positions... and many other errors which I made sometimes repeatedly and they always resulted in loses.
Once I listed all of these mistakes... and started developing plans, simple ways to control these errors everything started changing.. I started earning on average $300 a day, not near my $20,000 a month target but close, not close enough, but on the right path.
My wake up call was waking up and being sick and tired of the life I lived, I was going day by day doing the exact same things and I thought about it... we get one chance on this planet and one chance at life, for many people it ended today, for others it will end tomorrow but the thing is that most of them never saw it coming today, but life doesn't care, it just happens.
Here's the thing that "woke me up", realizing that I want a much better life and that time is running out for me here, just like it is running out for you and everyone you love... that is how time works, it keeps moving.
I then realized that there are mistakes that I make which prevent me from making my life and trading better... so I listed all my mistakes and came up with ways to control them...
Eventually I started focusing on controlling other things... the good things, like happiness, health and sources of income. - I realized that it is my duty to control my life.
This is no rocket science... you want a better life? better trading results? focus on controlling it all.
If you can't do it alone, then join my trading room I would be honored to help!
Thats all i've got for you! - Im passing out on the chair... I pulled a 17 hour shift today!
