If we are going to succeed in trading, we need to learn the fine art of self-discipline.  We must say NO to bad trades and the opportunity to make money, when the trade doesn’t fit our plan. One of the greatest examples of self-discipline can be found in World Trading Champ, Mark Minervini.  It takes a great deal of restraint to pass up 1,000s of opportunities to trade and only select 22 over the course of an entire year.  If you haven’t done so, check out my podcast regarding his 2021 year in review and see for yourself..   


It’s essential for a happy life and becoming a great trader.  Whatever you do, and whoever you are in your day-to-day life, will carry over to your trading life.  You should set firm boundaries and have the ability to say NO to yourself in all areas.   

Positive Self-Talk

When you mess up, and you will, don’t punish yourself with phrases like, “Geez, I’m so stupid, I’ll never be good at this.”  Instead, replace that kind of thinking with an acknowledgment of the mistake and a positive word.  For example, “Wow, I really made a mistake by not setting a stop loss on that trade.  I won’t make that mistake again.  Next time, I’m going to crush it.”  You must push yourself to keep moving forward as you learn from inevitable mistakes.  Quitting just isn’t an option.
