Happy Holidays | Closing 2019 | Top 10 Articles

As 2019 comes to a close, I will say … it’s been a year full of ups and downs for me.

A lot has been going on in my personal life; my emotional resilience was stress-tested on many occasions, but it’s been a wonderful opportunity to renew my commitment to mindfulness, openness, wisdom, and compassion.

Since those different personal issues demanded my attention, my trading volume this year has been pretty low. My results are still modestly positive (in the low double-digit), but I can see how they would have been much more impressive had I had the time and willingness to be as active in the market as I was in the previous years.

On the flip side, I’ve been quite active on both the real-estate and crypto-currency investing front. I’m always finding ways to diversify and create different streams of income, so I’m very excited about that.

All in all, I am grateful for this year and the challenges and growth it brought, and I’m ready to take on the New Year with renewed discipline, engagement, rigor, creativity, and focus.

I’m also grateful for all the wonderful readers I have had for five years now who follow me here on this blog or on Twitter (all of you!).

I’m glad I’m pushing you in my own little ways to be a more reflective person, to begin living an examined life, and to approach the market with a little more ease and clear-thinking, and I hope 2019 has been, for you, a productive year, full of learning.

If you’re still not where you want to be in trading; if it seems that you have emotional and mindset related restrictions, it’s simply because your mind is too tightly focused on the money.

I can’t say this enough.

Understand this: You can unlimit yourself by lifting the cloak of money from your focus, just like a professional musician who plays his or her instrument without letting hesitation, worry or fear of judgment cast a shadow on how he/she delivers the music notes. (that person has developed a wonderful sense of openness and isn’t trapped anymore by any of the concerns that plague the nonprofessionals.)

Of course, getting in this space of fearlessness and ‘effortless doing’ requires work. And that work can be long or short… it all depends on you, but know this: This is absolutely possible! If you think it isn’t, then you are unnecessarily limiting yourself instead of giving yourself permission to investigate and experiment with what can get you there.

You are a limitless being. Don’t unnecessarily limit yourself.

With that said, I wish you a very Happy Holiday season and a peaceful and prosperous New Year.

I've been trading for a living since 2006. By merging mindfulness (an in-depth study of the mind and its tendencies in the present moment), a good trading process, and an efficient business practice, I went from being a losing trader to a consistently profitable one. Through my work here at Trading Composure, I aim at helping you do the same.
