In our most recent Blog Post, I discussed the idea of living with a winning life philosophy.  This is something as I suggested that alludes the un-successful, and is second nature to the successful.

While there are many different life philosophies that have carried people on the arc of success, in my opinion, few have summed it up as simply and directly as this:

Show up, consistently, with a good attitude, for a long enough period of time, with faith and a burning desire, be willing to pay the price and operate with integrity.

  I talked a little bit about the integrity peace of the puzzle before.  Today lets talk about about what ‘showing up consistently,’ might mean in your path as a student.

This especially is a topic that at times I feel is misunderstood.  There certainly is some ‘dignity,’ in the very act of dragging one-self out of bed every morning at the crack of dawn to watch price-action in the market go up, go down and repeat itself.  While it is certainly necessary to take part in this action to learn how the market moves and become familiar with it, this is not the only action that can determine your success.

How do we know this?  Because not every single person who simply watches the market move everyday for a long period of time finds the success they are looking for.

What I propose, is that ‘Showing Up Consistently,’ has more to do with HOW you are developing your trading skill & knowledge on a daily basis than just how many hours of screen time you are putting in.  Trading is both speculative and reactive, however if you are just a witness your whole career, you will never make the necessary leap to becoming a ‘speculator.’

What I recommend is to make your act of ‘showing up consistently,’ more about education than observation.  Take time to look at the charts hours after session.  Analyze the 1hour & 4hour charts and then see how they correspond to the 15minute & 5minute charts where you likely would’ve made a decision to place a trade.  Was there a clear point of entry where you would’ve opened a trade?  Perhaps coinciding with one of the 3 beginner entries we teach?  Be honest with yourself, sometimes the market moves, but it doesn’t ‘let you in.’  Start to formulate plans surrounding criteria you are looking for.

Maybe reviewing charts in hindsight still makes you feel like you are looking at a completed puzzle but don’t really understand how you would’ve actually put the puzzle together yourself.  Maybe this means that your ‘showing up consistently,’ can mean reviewing and re-reviewing your Virtual Classroom to see if there is a ‘piece of the puzzle’ you are overlooking.

Remember,

Show up, consistently, with a good attitude, for a long enough period of time, with faith and a burning desire, be willing to pay the price and operate with integrity.

Each step matters as much as the next and a pie missing any-one ingredient may not result in a favorable dessert at all.  View your trading the same and consistent profit can be yours sooner than later.
