Taming Your Emotions
Being led by my emotions has caused me to make some serious  trading errors.  Trouble often comes because we aren’t expecting emotions to be a part of our trading.  It’s not something that is taught or talked about often. We can’t simply ignore our emotions, but we must not be led by them either.  Having discipline in your trading partly means that you acknowledge what you are feeling, process through it, and then make decisions accordingly.     

Is “Good” really Bad?
When I first started trading, I was on fire!  I was making a ton of money and it was super exciting.  I quickly became addicted to trading, developed extreme euphoria, and quite literally felt invincible. I convinced myself that I was untouchable and I could repeat my good fortune.  Unfortunately, all of those “good” feelings caused me to make some really horrendous trading decisions.  When that account tanked, I ended up at the opposite end of the spectrum…depressed, angry, and upset.   

No more outbursts
Life is fast-paced and so we often live in a constant state of “hurry”.  FOMO is very real!  (Fear of missing out, in case you are wondering.)  We don’t want to miss a thing, in life or trading, so we rush into decisions with our emotions at the helm.  If we truly want to be successful, we must recognize what we are experiencing and feeling, slow down, and learn to be deliberate and purposeful in our decision-making.  It’s counter-cultural to think that slowing down will actually make us better, but it does. Awareness will help us understand ourselves better and understand why we are trading the way we are.
