In our next group therapy session, we'll hear from Marcos - an aspiring trader just like you. He's currently working and taking time around work to trade.
When I met him, one of his major issues was sticking to his own plan. A common problem - and one that isn't easy to solve. I think partly, different people struggle for different reasons. I also think that once past the issue, it fades away until you can't even remember why it was a problem?
Ok - how about this - can you remember what it was like to not be able to drive? To still be not very good in those first lessons? In concept - I think most people can - but I just don't think the memory is as raw and visceral as when you are there or just after.
So we are striking while the iron is hot. I believe that Marcos is now over this and he has just passed 2 online trader evaluation accounts and is close to being funded. I know his stats too.
What we'll do on Thursday, is talk to someone that has recently got to the other side of that issue. Not someone that got past it a decade ago but someone that is through it recently. That doesn't make him Warren Buffet at this point, but if you are struggling with sticking to plan, this is worth a listen.
