On The Path To Greatness

by jennifer on October 22, 2013

Hello Yo’s. Hope you’re having a wonderful day today. I have a few thoughts to share with you about greatness. .

Do you want to talk about your problems, or do you want to do something about your problems? That is the question I have for you.

Do you want to complain about your life, your computer, your job, your partner, your kids, your weight, your finances, your house or trading strategies? Or do you want to make a change?

If you don’t want to make a change, then I strongly suggest you stop talking about it, stop complaining about all the things that are bad which you fully intend to live with, and stop reading this blog post.

If you are interested in changing some aspect of your life, your mind, your work, your finances, your fitness, your relationships, and greatest of all your trading, I have a message for you.

Fill your mind with solutions. Identify reasons why you are trading, what you like, what you want, what you can do that is working.

It is possible to put yourself into the place where there is no chance for success because no matter what, you are consumed with everything that is wrong and you are willing to live with it.

Being willing “to live with it” is not how you accomplish anything, let alone greatness.

Greatness comes when you stop focusing on what doesn’t matter. Stay focused on what does matter, and you darn well better be moving forward on the path. Are you getting closer to winning trades? Are you getting closer to having a career that can pay off your debt?

There are many things you can be doing to change reality in your mind, which is where all your reality starts. How you spend time thinking about everything has EVERYTHING to do with how your reality is going to play out. 

I know you think the market is your best friend right now, but it’s just a matter of time before it throws you under the bus. Again!  It won’t mean anything. It’s just what happens in moments when people are trying to get through life, because it’s people who are making the market move every day. Everyone has their own fears, worries, stresses and it will affect how the market treats you in moments when your trades are going badly.  Don’t expect the EUR/USD to be your best friend just because your last trade was great. Don’t expect the market to make perfect sense. Don’t expect trading to be easy tomorrow just because it was easy today. You know these things about the market and the people who drive it up and down. You are wasting your time thinking it will ever change. It will not change.  You are in front of your computer for a reason. Figure out what your reason for trading is, and stay focused on that and nothing else. 

You put so much importance in people’s opinions about you, that you give them a chance to limit you by their opinions.

Until none of them matter, and you are private and living your dream for you, it’s not really your dream, and it becomes your nightmare anytime anyone else’s plans for trading take you away from your own rules.

Protect yourself. Be private.  

If your living situation is getting in the way of your success, change it. Period.

You need less than you think.

If you need more support from experienced traders, then get into a trading group.  If you need money, work; if you need a coach then hire one; if you need to go work out and clear your mind, then do it; if you need a doctor, then get one. If your best friend is out of line with you, then confront him. Don’t talk about it. Do it.

Stop wasting all your time on the stuff that has no meaning and keeps you on a nonproductive cycle of getting no where.

Clean up your language. You want to be better than the rest? Then be better than the rest and start by having the control not to talk like every one else. That will change your life. I guarantee it.  It’s hard to do, but it will definitely bring change and power to you.

I hope, and I even pray that you will not wait until it’s too late to learn how to take control of your life and your trading.

Have a wonderful day.

Jennifer
