The question people ask me most often is, not surprisingly, “Can I be successful at this?” Mostly, they ask me the question after a devastating loss. It’s a natural time to ask the question, but it’s a horrible time to answer it yourself.
Why? Because you can be successful, and every time you start to feel depressed about losing, you stop believing in yourself. If you stop believing in yourself, you stop working as hard, and if you stop working as hard, you start to make more mistakes, and a vicious cycle begins.
Losses bring depression which brings more losses, and then before you know it you’ve lost your entire first account. You don’t have to trade that way. There is a better way to trade.
I trade currency for a living, and so can you. Maybe it will take you more than a year to become successful. Maybe more. But you can do it. You don’t have to be better than most people at math. You don’t have to score high on an IQ test. You don’t have to be the smartest person you know. You just have to be disciplined.
