Think back to your childhood, when you were learning something new.
Whether you were learning to ride your bike or solve that Rubik’s cube you spent your time begging your parents to buy you, try to capture that feeling of first discovering the thing you loved so much.
It’s not the market that throws us lemons, it’s what we do with them.
Keep this in the back of your mind…
We get tons of training in thinking and problem solving, but we rarely if ever get any training in awareness. Yet, awareness is often the prelude to any solution to our inability to be and stay consistent in trading.
We all want certainty in our lives. It is a wonderful thing to have order to our lives, to know what to expect, and to feel safe, but as traders, it is not always easy to get those things.
The market likes to throw chaos our way. Uncertainty is in its nature.
