If you believe it, you can achieve it. OK, that's a ridiculous sentiment - but it bears some truth. Your state of mind is incredibly important to your trading performance. No, that doesn't mean that you can wish the market higher, lower or sideways.
But if you come into the trading day thinking that there's no way you can dig yourself out of a hole you got in, for example, then you might as well not even trade that day. You have little shot at profits.
How do you improve? Senior Performance Coach John Hoagland and Mick Ieronimo talk through it and share how they've kept a positive (but realistic) state of mind. Check it out and leave any feedback in the comments. Enjoy.
