SURVEYS

“A winner knows that every rule in the book can be broken except one – be who you are, and become all you were meant to be…which is the only winning game in the world.”
© Sydney J. Harris

What is your definition of “success,” or of being “successful?” If we look at Roget’s Thesaurus as I like to do - “success” is defined as:
a) “…accomplishment, achievement, execution, fulfillment, implementation, completion, attainment…”
Keep in mind that our mental environment, in other words, our physical brains, are wired to retain all information that we are taught or we experience in our lives. And all information is created through the energy associated with all experiences.
So to become a consistent and successful trader, you need to accept that any underlying negative feelings such as anger, sadness, fear, etc. must be de-energized – not controlled. Every trader has feelings that are not positive at times, and it is a daily choice for each trader to decide for himself how to handle them, if at all. During these current strange times, every trader has to re-align their mental environment to fully grasp mentally, emotionally and spiritually that they truly do not know what is going to happen next.
It is simple. If you want to be a winner, then start thinking like one! “Do you want to make money, or do you want to be right?”™ Financially winning against an opponent, especially yourself, is the most different game, but – a game that any trader can win at…if they choose to.

Trading During Pandemic Conditions Survey

  1. Did you have a good or better year trading in 2020?
    1. If yes, you don’t need to finish the survey.
  1. If not, what percentage are you down from 2019?
    1. How does that make you feel?
      1. Be specific.
  1. Why do you think your profit/equity is less than in 2019?
    1. Be specific.
  1. Did you see opportunities in 2020 that you did not take advantage of?
    1. If so, why do you think you didn’t take profit as you did in 2019?
      1. Be specific.
  1. Did you see other traders making money in 2020?
    1. How did that make you feel?
    2. What type of emotions or self-talk did that bring up?
      1. Be specific.
  1. Did you think the virus was overblown initially?
    1. If so, did you change your trading strategy to accommodate that belief?
      1. If not, why not?
    2. If you believed it was real and growing, did you change your trading strategy to accommodate that belief?
      1. If not, why not?
        1. Be specific in these answers.
  1. Whichever way you believed doesn’t matter in terms of this survey. What does matter is that you created a certain belief about a world event – no matter how or why you created it – and once that new belief was added to your trading strategy, you did nothing to tweak your edge, or change your perspective toward your trading.
  1. Since you created a new belief about a world event affecting all traders, including yourself, why wouldn’t you think you needed a newer thinking methodology?
  2. Considering no trader on the planet has been through this type of pandemic before, and the markets haven’t either – it would make sense that all that you currently know about trading…has changed.
    1. And your equity reflects this.
  1. What do you think you need to change about your approach to your trading now that we are in a new year?
    1. Considering the pandemic is more than likely here to stay indefinitely?
      1. Be specific.
