We can all become successful trading the markets, no one is born a good and profitable trader. - Everyone is self-made, but only the successful will admit it.
In this quick post I want to go over a checklist which can help you become successful in trading and life.
Without goals life has no meaning nor purpose... yet most people (and traders) go randomly throughout their days, weeks, months... and years.
You need to know where you are going so, the first thing is to write down an answer to the golden question: Where am I going? Why am I headed there? Why do I wake up in the morning?
We all have an amazing ability to change ourselves and our environment. I found out very quickly that having an expectant attitude is a much better way to approach forex trading.
The way we create an expectant trading attitude and a results oriented attitude is by having goals of profitability.
As you see without the first point, everything else is useless.
“The only thing about a man that is a man . . . is his mind. Everything else you can find in a pig or a horse.” – Archibald MacLeish
Use that beautiful brain of yours every single day... take a minute to think about your trading, your life, your love, your health and your passions...
You need to develop the art of thinking and they way to develop anything all you have to do is be consistent.
4. CAUSE AND EFFECT
Your rewards in life are in the exact proportion to the service you render and the contributions that you make.
By this, I simply mean that if you want results you need to make them.
Do your work, always do your work (charting + analysis)
5. BE REALISTIC
This is one of the most important fundamental reasons to success in forex trading.

6. RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT
Reinvest in the true source of your ability and success: yourself, your body, your mind. - Always!
This is a basic checklist, you don't have to copy the whole thing out... but it would be useful to your trading success that you copy at least something and employ it to your forex trading.
Remember that we become what we think about most of the time, so start focusing on the good things such as your GOALS!
