The market likes to throw chaos our way. Uncertainty is its nature.
The market likes to play with our nerves. It will do what it does best: shake the most amounts of monkeys off its branches.
This means that stress and high-pressure situations (as a result of uncertainty) are unfortunately absolutely inevitable.
All too often, traders are ill-prepared for this.
A few years ago, I had an experience that revealed a lot about my mind.
At the time, I had just come back from a 6-month meditation journey and I was slowly reintegrating society.
Trading takes a lot of self-discipline. Self-discipline gets you consistency, and consistency makes success achievable within an acceptable amount of time.
In this blog post, I want to discuss dedication and how it’ll make you stand out as a trader.
But let me start by giving you some tough love: You will NEVER make it as a trader if you do NOT take it seriously.
Wishing and hoping, without doing the actual work, won’t get you anywhere.
