Traders have no idea of the mind field that they step into when they decide to learn to trade. It is instinctive to fear uncertainty and its cousin probability when real capital risk as part of the equation. It is an inescapable truth of trading.
The old rules of success no longer apply and are, in fact, lethal in the brave new world of trading. When facing uncertainty, traders trigger to the fight/flight response to threat. Traders succumb to this survival instinct every time they place capital at risk in the markets. And most stay stuck here until they bleed their capital dry.
But to be successful in trading, this default programming has to be re-written from its survival origins so that different emotions give rise to the mind that engages uncertainty with capital at risk. This is the emotional control that is explored in this video. Until you know how to manage the emotions that interact with the probabilities of uncertainty, there is a gigantic hole in your capacity to trade effectively.
Open yourself to this necessary skill by exploring this video and learn how you can develop the emotional control needed to trade with a disciplined mind.

What Stands 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?
