Hedge Fund Masters: How Top Hedge Fund Traders Set Goals, Overcome Barriers, and Achieve Peak Performance

Hedge Fund Masters, is a continuation of and elaboration on these concepts and a further exploration of the parameters of high performance, including those in relation to leadership and the empowerment of others. It delves into the creation of a masterful culture where high standards of excellence, the measurement of performance, and the capacity for transforming yourself and those around you become a critical part of the conversation.

Author’s Introduction:

I hope this book will help you to learn the principles used by master traders so you can achieve your goals and access the unique genius that lies within you. You will discover how to:

  • Maintain a balance between too little and too much emotion
  • Concentrate your energy, attention, and drive on specific targets and actions
  • Find the right amount of intensity and effort so you don’t burn out or lose your motivation
  • Psyche yourself up
  • Let go of the controls and allow your intuitive processes to function automatically

In addition, this book will help you to develop faith and trust in an image of a positive outcome. Success in life, as in trading, requires the ability to let go of inhibitions about winning and losing. In fact, the ability to overcome various learned inhibitions is one of the major characteristics differentiating successful traders from mediocre ones. Because an “empty mind” produces the best performance, it is my desire to help you to learn how to relinquish all thoughts of winning and losing and to learn how to reduce anxiety.

I want to show you how to control or to eliminate the depressive response to performing poorly, which can seriously impair energy, drive, motivation, and the capacity to concentrate under stress. I’ll also suggest a variety of psychological exercises to maintain motivation, concentration, endurance, and performance under stressful circumstances.

By learning how to create mental images of success, you will be able to overcome any fears of success or inhibition about letting out all the stops. Equally important, you will learn how to adopt this attitude in a relaxed way so that the goal does not become an obsession. You will learn a series of tasks through which you can achieve all the necessary components of the skill required in a particular activity and thus accomplish all that you set out to do.
