If you are feeling like nothing is going your way… if you want to give up, but you know “being positive” may help your trading (and in life), then consider adopting this approach.
In this video, you will see two simple techniques for creating a better day. They are simple to employ, and with a little practice, you can achieve a consistently positive outlook. An you may amaze yourself when you look back after a few weeks of “better days.”
I liked this video on how to have an excellent trading day as my own self analysis has identified certain psychological issues that I need to resolve to increase my emotional energy tanks.
I would like to add a small idea based on NLP techniques which goes like this.
As you are saying the thank you and going thru the things you are thankful for – perform an anchoring technique for instance such as touching your thumb and forefinger together. Link this anchor with the positive thoughts in your mind and after the 30 days merely touching your thumb and forefinger will elicit the positive feelings at will. This is akin to what Pavlov discovered with salivating dogs and bells many years ago.
