Daniel Goleman: Channeling emotions toward a productive end

 

Successful trading doesn’t happen when you’ve gotten rid of emotions. Rather it happens when you finally know what to do with them.

Today I bring you a quote from Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More Than IQ

Channeling emotions toward a productive end is a master aptitude. Whether it be in controlling impulse and putting off gratification, regulating our moods so they facilitate rather than impede thinking, motivating ourselves to persist and try, try again in the face of setbacks, or finding ways to enter flow and so perform more effectively—all bespeak the power of emotion to guide effective effort.

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.
