Are your emotions out of control?
26 Jun 2023
Let’s have a reality check here. You will lose money at some point whilst trading.
This will be to various degrees and at various times and for different reasons.
There are, of course, ways to drastically limit such losses (which I discuss elsewhere), but losing money at some point whilst trading happens to us all.
This is why stickability is so important.
I mean the ability to stick at it, to keep going, to be courageous in the face of adversity and to not step back.
The ability to stand with certainty of the vision and goal of becoming a successful trader.
Being a good trader, a successful, profitable trader is not about winning every trade.
It’s about winning more money than you lose and having the stickability to keep going.
By keeping on going you have already placed yourself head and shoulders (also a candle pattern name) above the rest.
Lots of people start and it isn’t ‘working’ for them and so they end up packing it all in.
However, no matter how good your training is, no matter how good your mentor is, no matter how smart and clever and analytical you may be, you will not be an overnight success with trading.
It takes time to develop the skill of trading, and to stand that test of time you need stickability.
You need to commit yourself to learning the skill of trading.
Are you committed? If you’re not, stop reading right now and close down this webpage! Seriously.
I remember when I first started trading, I was super excited. My first trade was a winner, my second one was too.
I was an overnight success!
In my head I had this trading thing all sewed up and I was the big cheese.
But I got cocky and I ended up having some losers.
Do you think it knocked my confidence? Do you think I doubted myself? Do you think I doubted if trading works? Do you think I questioned my mentors? Do you think I told the market to f**k off?
Answers in order are: yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, a lot!
Did I consider quitting and stopping after my first month? Of course I did but I stuck with it, I kept going and that was part of my success.
There is a great quote by Woody Allen that goes, “80% of life (success) is showing up”.
You have to just keep showing up.
You have to use that stickability muscle and do everything that needs to be done to be a success.
It isn’t easy, it takes work and you can’t outsource it.
It requires you to be invested in yourself, your learning and your trading.
