In today's tip, I want to talk a bit about fear.
And specifically the fear of succeeding.
I know what you are probably thinking. How in the world can you be afraid of being a success?
Well, apparently you can.
And I was like that once too.
When I first got into trading, I knew I was going to be successful.
But I had to really push myself to do it.
And then when I was starting to become a success at trading, I would literally self-sabotage myself.
I was reading an article this morning saying that this actually happens to many traders.
The start doing well, making money, and then something happens, a little bit of doubt creeps in, a little bit of fear from this and that, and all of a sudden, they go through a massive drawdown.
But not a natural drawdown from the market. A drawdown based off of what they were doing (or not doing).
They ended up purposely sabotaging themselves.
This is something I could wholeheartedly relate to. Because THAT WAS ME.
Being successful can be scary. Especially if you have never been a success at something before.
But you can get over it.
Do you know what the word fear means?
It is an acronym for:
So what that means is that we are making up some story in our heads, and at some point….we believe them.
Maybe we think that if we have all this money coming in from trading
…our spouse will leave us.
…or maybe it is that to be a success we need to spend 15+ hours per day in front of our monitors.
…our taxes will be out of this world
Whatever the story is, it's not real.
We get this story which produces a fear, that will, in turn, cause you to take actions to screw yourself.
Don't do this.
A few of the ways I overcame this was
+ through meditation
+ daily affirmations
+ spending time with other super successful people
+ NOT spending time with people who were not successful
+ I also had my friends and family encourage me
A combination of these things, and maybe other things you think of can help.
But success can be yours if you want it bad enough and you don't end up self-sabotaging yourself like I used to.
Right now I am actually recording a video series for my Inner Circle called “Mindset Mastery”.
It will be expansive in subject matter on training your mind the right way in order to be successful.
The ONLY WAY to get this course (when released), will be to signup for the Inner Circle this month.
And only this month. If you sign up next month than sorry, you will have to purchase it separately.
So Join the Inner Circle today.
