My Traders State of Mind
Ever wondered why (despite your best efforts, hard work, and smarts) that a significant gap still remains between what you know as possible and your results? That gap should tell you to look at your trading psychology (and rightfully so). But what if it were more than the psychology of trading? What if that gap in performance has as much to do with your biology as your trader psychology? It does.

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.
You never see it. Yet, it sits there in the background of your awareness and keeps sabotaging your efforts at success in trading. Your focus on success and winning blind you to what is needed for Performance Mind for trading. This video will show you were to find the hidden mind field that blows up your potential and what you can do about it.
It also describes the upcoming Group Course that teaches you how to re-design the mind for Probability Thinking that is so missing in the mind you brought to trading. Watch it and learn.
It looks so do-able (and it is) until the money is real. Then something happens. In an emotional ambush, a trader's need to be right or his fear of losing corrupts a perfectly good trading mind. This is the missing skill. 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?
