OVERNIGHT SUCCESS?

Forget it!

With trading, there is no such thing as an overnight success. Trading should be taken as a serious business. Never put yourself in a position to judge the market or get angry at it or think it is acting "against" you.


You also never overestimate your abilities. The balance of a successful trade lies between how long you wait for a trade, being disciplined and patient enough for the winning trade to accumulate on its own.

AT THE END OF THE TRADING DAY

At the end of the trading day, you can look in the mirror and remind yourself that at least you have a chance to trade.

Beginner traders often don't last for too long. If you keep this mind in mind, you must think very carefully before deciding to increase the size of your trade after a series of losses.

If you want to survive in this game, don't overdo it!

At the beginning of the trading day, always think about the end of it before making a trade. If there is even one possibility that you will "hate yourself" at the end of the trading day, then DO NOT START THIS TRADING!


Trading is a journey, NOT WINS! Beginner traders like to think this way, but you SHOULD NOT! Overall success is the privilege you are given to doing something you like to do more, not more than losing. The more your mind thinks about victory, the lower your chances of success in this game are. So enjoy the journey and only when you can do that will you have the chance to become a successful trader, even more!


TRADING IS A SINGLE JOURNEY OF SELF-DISCOVERY

Trading is a battle of yourself, and there is no one else who can understand you better than you. When results are not the only goal, of course, you will spend more effort on process and purpose.

A lot of traders (especially newbie traders) think that if they change their trading strategy this will automatically result in improved trading results. Then they go on jumping from strategy to strategy, not knowing that where they need to go is really deep within themselves.

The advice for beginner traders is to try to resolve your own internal conflicts. We, as traders, always have a conflict between our inner states of fear and greed, you know! Look no further, look at your own bad trading habits. There's no better place to start your trading journey!


DID YOU SEE YOUR MISTAKE?

Try to think less and analyze more.


Traders do not have to have a "computer brain". Traders (especially novices) should be willing and willing to look back to analyze their own trading behavior. No one but you is generous enough to help you do that on this journey of self-discovery. Practice your habits and remove the bad foundations of failure in trading.


THE MORE YOU SEE, THE FEWER MISTAKES YOU SEE

That's why it's important to track and analyze your behavior. In the event that you no longer see, then you have seen enough. Go ahead and stop thinking about it. Then it will, somehow, naturally find you.

Analyze your trading mistakes and bad habits to get rid of them as soon as possible. Every day, become an improved version trader and never "the old horse" like when you were a newbie!


THEN WHAT TO DO NEXT?

If your brain is still lowering you, you should reconsider your trading approach. In fact, you should consider whether trading is really for you. If you are dissatisfied with the way you spend your time every day and you feel distressed after a long day of trading, then that means that trading is probably not right for you ...


You should look deep inside yourself first and decide if this is what you want to do over a long period of time. If you answered NO, then do yourself a favor and find another suitable job. Trading won't make you happier and richer if you don't feel a POSITIVE vibe in the first place!

On the other hand, if you feel completely absorbed by it and don't feel the time is passing, then perhaps you should take a deeper look at yourself and try to get rid of bad habits before it's too late. ... and become a better trader!


KEY THINGS I LEARNED FROM MY JOURNEY OF SELF-DISCOVERY AS A BEGINNER TRADER

If I could go back in time, what I would say to myself when I first started trading is:
  • Start with yourself first!
  • Take ownership of your mistakes and try to eliminate them.
  • Don't just jump from strategy to strategy in hopes of finding the "holy grail" system.
  • Don't spend more time than necessary in front of the trade screen to fall into overtrading.
  • Spend more time tracking and analyzing your results.
  • Don't give in to what other traders think - you have a unique personality!
  • Always be prepared to challenge yourself.
  • Let's start with the mental image of the end.
  • Don't think about money.
  • Enjoy the journey!
