There are a lot of subjects we can disagree on but the one that no one will ever disagree with is the fact that we only get one of this life. There are no second chances or makeovers.
We all have just one chance, the time we all get is different and life can end at any moment in a million different ways... sorry for the drama but that is the hard truth and most of us act like we have a million years and multiple lives to spare.
This post is not trading related but since motivation and mental wellbeing are both essential to any kind of success, in any work we do, I find it very important to discuss.
A strategy that has helped me succeed in my working career was being devoted everyday to what I wanted to achieve... and when I say "show up everyday" I don't just mean come in and say hello, last in - first out work ethic... I am taking about showing up in every front of your life and that includes the sectors of;
The key to success lies in doing the "do's" so you don't have time for the "don'ts" and the way to achieve that is to show up everyday in the 4 sectors mentioned above...
For health, you can start with a workout and good food... for happiness you can do meditation and apply a Positive Mental Attitude, or do what I do and that is to make the people I love happy.
In the sector of income, if you are a part of my community you can simply scout the markets and look out for any of the 3 patterns we trade... they will make you money.
And in the knowledge sector pick up a book, listen to an audiobook, scan the charts to improve your "eagle-eye" for finding patterns... read blogs and listen to interviews.
There are dozens upon dozens of things you can do to improve these 4 sectors on a daily basis, and even if you do just a little everyday... the power of momentum combined with compounding will give you a MASSIVE PAYOFF in just a few weeks. - Not to mention what months and years can do for you.
Now, I did say this post will not be about trading, but I did release a 3 minute video over the weekend which explains what we can do to remove one of the biggest reasons I see traders losing... and that is holding on to losers (and not having a stop loss area).
I will keep this post short and end it here... but before I let you go make sure you subscribe to my new youtube channel so you can get regular updates of the videos I release!
Wishing you a superb day!
