Tackle Today: Do you know yourself ❓
August 17, 2018
There’s not just one way to do anything in the markets. Some of the most important skillsets for your success are problem-solving, creative thinking, psychology, and mindset. If you want to have the best potential to succeed you should work on these areas.
What we’ve found as we’ve taught traders is that one of the most important components is to find yourself, and build a system that fits your worldview, your psychology, your schedule and your relationship to fear, money, time and success.
Dr. Van Tharp said it very well:
You do not trade the markets. You can only trade
your beliefs about the markets.
—Van K. Tharp
Spend some time reviewing today’s video of the day from Coach T from the way back machine in 2015. It is a long post, but worth the read and watch. Start developing your trading identity. When you have one you will achieve more with your trading.
