Trading Motivation 1: Focus! Never Stop Trying!


Focus! Never stop trying! Forex Trading Motivation

"I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that's why I succeed. " - Michael Jordan

In trading, the moment you start, you must accept all the challenges and consequences that it might bring into your life. You must accept that this profession is one of the hardest to master. You must accept that if you fail and burn out your account, people will think that you are a failure, a gambler or someone who do things hastily and does not think thoroughly about the important things that should be considered first before entering into such a venture.


Focus On Positive Things

Instead of focusing on the negative things that people say, focus on your trading. Focus on how you can improve it. Focus on becoming a disciplined trader. Focus on becoming a consistently profitable one. Instead of giving up on trading, let those negative things people say become your motivation to gradually improve yourself as you continue your journey to become that successful person that you will be.

Picture Yourself As A Successful Trader

Picture yourself as the successful trader that you wanted to be, do this every day. The moment you wake up, thank the Lord for giving you another day, another opportunity to right the wrong things that you have done. Be grateful that you have been given another opportunity to succeed in life. 

Picture yourself the things that you wanted to do in your life. Picture the great things that you can do if you become successful. Never let a moment of the day come to past without thinking about these things. It will become a habit and you will trick your brain that you are already a successful trader.

Failure Is A Prerequisite Of Success

Remember that every successful people failed first before attaining their success. No one has mastered a skill without making a lot of mistakes. Trading is a skill to be learned. Like driving a car, if you have learned how to trade you will never forget how to do it unless you get an amnesia or Alzheimer's disease. Kidding aside, keep on failing over and over again. Eventually, success will be inevitable.

This is the first of the series of my Trading Motivation. I hope you enjoyed it and got motivated. I will be posting more of this kind of article in the future, in a hope to inspire more traders to continue on their trading journey.
