Growing Popularity of Trading

There’s no doubt that trading has become more popular over the past decade or more. For some investors, working from home, where ever home might be, and earning consistent profits through trading stocks, options, futures, or currencies, is both appealing and lucrative.

On top of that, markets are more accessible than ever, information is readily available and internet access has become widespread. Perhaps even more importantly, experts are willing to share their knowledge, so mentoring and coaching help are accessible.

Successful trading also requires a specialized mindset, an idea explored in my 2014 co-authored book, The Winning Way.

3 Traits Every Trader Needs

In The Winning Way book, we look at three psychological mindsets that are necessary for a trader, regardless of experience, to be successful. Those mindsets are: one, accept market uncertainty; two, focus on the “now”; and three, think probability.

I thought it would be useful to outline these qualities in a little more detail here.

Accept Market Uncertainty

You have to believe that each trade is a random event and the outcome is out of your control and beyond any kind of analysis.

About What is Happiness

Everyone wants to be happy but not everyone knows how to achieve this. The first step to finding happiness in your life is to become more aware of it. There are certain steps that you can do to increase your awareness and it is best to know what they are.

Becoming happy has a lot to do with what your priorities are. Everyone wants something different in life and getting what you want can bring happiness. Do you want to have a lot of success in the business world? Are you looking to have better health ? Do you want to own property? Or are your needs more spiritual? Thinking about the priorities in your life can easily lead you to happiness. By knowing your priorities you will be able to find out what you need to do to become happy.

What does happiness really mean?

While you may be able to find out why you need for happiness it should be noted that it isn’t that hard. Happiness is inside all of us, we simply need to be aware of it. Happiness is not really about how much stuff you have or how successful you are. Happiness is more about acceptance of yourself and being content with where you are in life. If you find that you are not happy by looking to see what can make you happy you will be aware of what you need to do.

So how do you increase your awareness of happiness? There are some steps that you can take to ensure that you increase your awareness of how to be happy.
