My Traders State of Mind
The very “winning attitude” that you bring to trading is a huge obstacle to your developing a mind for effective trading. Yet, your self-image is that you’re a winner. That was great for survival – a winner take all proposition, but not for managing Probability – where nothing is certain. You are out to win – to make money, be in control, to be right, and not lose. Yet, in trading you have no control over outcome – over winning. If you want to send the survival Emotional Brain into fight/flight, this is how you do it.
The good news is that there is another way. Learn about the Performance Mind as a self-image for the management of uncertainty -- trading. Come learn the difference. Watch the video. Read the article. Attend the upcoming free webinar. Are you ready to adapt for the trading world?
The Mind you bring to the management of Uncertainty is the Real Edge in trading. It is yours to de- velop or to remain stuck in performance. And the markets do not care.
Does a "winning mindset" work in trading? Much of winning is about predicting or controlling outcome or making things happen. But in trading, you do not control outcome or whether you win or lose. All that power focused on the need for control is wasted -- because outcome cannot be controlled in trading.
So what does a winning mindset really look like in trading? Come and learn.

Does Your Trader Psychology Stand Between You
and the Success You Know You're Capable of?
Most traders stay stuck at the cusp of trading at a higher level, but never achieve it. They do not grasp that the certainty based mindset that they bring to trading will never bring success. Trading success requires developing a probability based mindset. Management of emotion and the hidden beliefs you bring to the management of uncertainty are the fundamental psychological skills needed for success.
Without training and internal courage, this is the last thing you will want to tackle because it forces you to step out of your comfort zone into the discomfort that facing uncertainty causes to the untrained mind. This avoidance is why you stay stuck in unrealized trading potential. You come to realize that the health of your trading account is the only honest way to see your real beliefs in action (or a benchmark based on the trading account). Beliefs, emotions, and performance are tied together and the trading account is the only real judge. It will hold you accountable for your performances. This is the alchemy that gives rise to the Traders State of Mind.
Successful traders are not trying to control outcome by external means. They are learning to manage their internal experience and, thereby, controlling the mind they bring into the moment of execution. By letting go of the illusion of control over outcome, they learn to control the one thing they can control -- the process of trading. This is their edge over the herd. Do you want to learn how?
