When things get tough and your learning curve as a trader is an uphill battle, remember, nothing last forever. What do I mean by that?

Pretty simple. Your toughest challenge in life will bring you deepest joy. Life is cyclical and you appreciate the true beauty of life when you face your deepest fear, keep moving forward and eventually you pull it off.

I love trading because it’s HARD, not because it’s easy.

The sky is not the limit as a trader. Neither is the blue ocean.

Limiting Beliefs

Most people  have limiting beliefs. What can be done. What cannot. Once you live with the WHAT IF mindset, the unbelievable may happen.

Comfort Zone

The willingness to go into unchartered territory separates the good trader from the legendary trader. What I mean by that? Once a trader reachs a comfortable zone, his tendency is to stay into the comfort zone.  Trading system(s)  (trade setups, position sizing, psychology…) are up and running.  Trading is boring because everything is efficient.

 One step ahead

I believe one should never stay too long in the comfort zone, yet stretched out to new boundaries. The reason is when we keep moving forward, we grow. As we grow,  we are always one step ahead of the market. We are proactive. Not reactive. Anticipation is a second nature.

 

It’s obvious, trivial. However,  less 1 out 100 professional trader(s) will move beyond…

 

 

 

How to make every day the best day of your life

Why dabbler (people who cannot commit) never achieve anything in life…

Choose CAREFULLY the game you want to play. Then, BE THE VERY BEST at IT. Even it takes 2/3 decades, you will be glad you made up your mind that day.

The day you can dissociate the game you choose to play during your lifetime and “money you make”, you can have it all. I shift gears from outcome-oriented to process-oriented entirely.

Result: I have a blast during my journey, regardless of the outcome. And guess what? It’s very counter-intuitive but the outcome takes care of itself.

It does NOT mean that I don’t have huge goals scheduled. It just means that today, I am totally obsessed with the process of building trading system(s). Every is a BLISS

I craft.

The whole game changes.

 Why you should live beyond scarcity as a trader

WHY YOU WILL NEVER EXPERIENCE LASTING LOVE AND ABUNDANCE IN YOUR LIFE, IF YOU ARE WAITING FOR A REASON TO BE HAPPY. TRUE HAPPINESS COMES WITHOUT AN EXTERNAL REASON

 

Life is a journey. Yet, we wrongly believe that at some point, if we work hard enough, long enough and the like, we will be rewarded in one way or another.

We start off with scarcity and we travel towards abundance. This is very subtle mainly because these thoughts stem from a subconscious level of our brain. We may understand it intellectually but we don’t truly  grasp this core notion in our gut.

I had an awakening . Imagine you kick off your journey with very few resources. You decide that no matter  what, every single day will be the best day of your life. You start off with a mindset of abundance. You  don’t ramble, rant.. On the contrary, you embrace each day as the most beautiful day of the year.

You know what. It may take months, years or even decades to reach your numerous milestone(s) toward  your goal. You have NO POWER to determine, how, when and IF , you will reach all your goals. But you  have the ultimate power to enjoy the ride. To have a blast. Every of your life.

“Success is not doing things well or even being acknowledged by other. It ‘s not an external status but an internal feeling.” (from Carlos Slim). The day you start off your journey with the mindset of abundance, you  will be successful.

Life is simple, yet not easy. Abundance mindset is a BIG DEAL. Indeed, it’s the reason both destitute people and billionaire may have a crappy life. None of them live the present fully and intensely. They are waiting for a better tomorrow to be happy.

As a trader, this mindset has a HUGE IMPACT in your P&L.
