A Journey of Self

The journey to becoming a consistently successful short-term investor begins with successfully getting to know who you are.

My personal journey is ongoing.

It is one that will likely continue until my time on this planet is up.

I like to say “perspective is a superpower“.  The phrase warrants a session all its own, but a relevant point for this discussion is…

Progress is the metric by which we measure the output of this superpower.

We can’t know how truly great we can become until we develop and embrace a full understanding of the things we will need to destroy within ourselves in order to rebuild from a stronger foundation.

I have curated a profile designed to embody the MINDSET of a successful trader from my personal experience.

Over the next several weeks, we will get more into how these 16 key attributes, or affirmations of being, are vital to overcoming the pitfalls experienced by over 70% (the most conservative number we could find) of traders.

For now, take a minute to establish your base level (before picture) for the first 4 of our 16 attribute metrics.

Let’s get started with the definitions:

Be: PRESENT

DEFINITION
adjective
1) in a particular place
2) existing or occurring now

Be: AWARE

DEFINITION
adjective
1) having knowledge or perception of a situation or fact.
2) concerned and well-informed about a particular situation or development.

Be: CURIOUS

DEFINITION
adjective
1) eager to know or learn something
2) strange; unusual

Be: VISIONARY

DEFINITION
adjective
thinking about or planning the future with imagination or wisdom.

On a scale from 1 (needs most work) to 9 (operating at the highest level), where do you currently land?

Whatever the number, it’s okay!

Add these 4 affirmations to your meditation routine for at least the next 21 days, and ideally, as we navigate the course and beyond.

I AM PRESENT

I AM AWARE

I AM CURIOUS

I AM VISIONARY
