Sorry. It won’t happen.
They are too big.
They are too fast.
They are too strong.
If you want to win, you have to play a long game. You have to be willing to do the things most people are not.
I read this thing the other day that was talking about what it took to be successful. Wait before I give you the quote, I have something else to say here: We always hear “follow your dream” and “do what makes you happy” and “if you work your passion, you will never work another day in your life” or something. I don’t really know many people who that’s true for to be really honest with you. Sorry.
So here’s the quote: “Because by doing the things they don’t like to do, they can the things they want to accomplish. Successful men are influenced by the desire for pleasing results. Failures are influenced by the desire for pleasing methods and are inclined to be satisfied with such results as can be obtained by doing things they like to do.”
Do you trade how you “want to”? Do you let how you feel about wanting to take more trades and take more risk and your greed take over? then you are being controlled by the things you actually like and want.
To do what’s hard in trading is to do three things:
1. Put on less risk than you even think you should on a trade
2. Let a a positive trade run and never sit in your draw down
3. Plan a trade for as long as you have to, take the trade, and let it play out, one way or the other.
It’s that simple.
If you need help with that, check out the link at the beginning of this article. I made the Trenders course for just this concept.
Have a great weekend.
