I hope you’re having a great week so far!
You know, I read something the other day that reminded me of a really important lesson I had to learn a long time ago.
It’s a lesson that’s stuck with me through all these years…
And helped me achieve success in multiple areas of my life.
Now, when I say this happened a long time ago, I’m talking 20-plus years.
This was before trading or the markets were even on my radar.
At the time, I was working as a mechanic at a local dealership…
And I’ll never forget this one conversation that changed my entire outlook… and helped shape my future forever.
Now at the time, my day job was turning wrenches at the dealership…
But, as is typical for me, I had a side hustle.
At this particular time, I believe I was moonlighting as an insurance salesman.
Well, if you’ve ever spread yourself too thin between multiple jobs or ventures, you know…
One can quickly start impacting the other.
And it wasn’t long before the extra hours started catching up with me… and my performance at the dealership started slipping.
Well, one day my service manager pulled me aside.
“What’s going on?” he asked.
“Well, see, I’m trying to start my own thing,” I replied.
I went on to tell my manager how I ultimately wanted to have my own office, and have people under me, and basically run my own successful business.
But what he said to me in response completely changed my outlook.
“Dustin, success is not an achievement,” he said.
“It’s an attitude.”
He went on to explain to me that truly successful people aren’t just successful in one aspect of their lives.
See, what separates successful people from everyone else is the success mindset…
In other words, striving to be the best… and giving your absolute best… in everything that you do.
There’s actually a quote I really like that sums this idea up perfectly.
It goes like this: How you do anything is how you do everything.
Now, I don’t know what your personal trading goals are.
Maybe trading is your side hustle… one that you’re striving to make your full-time income.
Or maybe you’re retired and you’re just trading to make some supplemental cash.
Regardless of where you are, I do know one thing…
You won’t achieve the trading success you crave unless you approach it with a success mindset.
That means having a written trading plan and a proven strategy in place that can help you get to where you want to go.
Now I’ve coached a lot of traders over the years, and I’ve seen a lot of them approach it half-heartedly.
They say, “Eh, I’ll worry about figuring out an actual strategy once I’m making money.”
But guess what…
That’s completely backward!
The reality is you will continue to struggle, flounder and fail at trading until you put in the work necessary to achieve your goals.
… Until you approach it with the success mindset.
Now I know that it may seem like a daunting task.
But there is an easy, step-by-step method you can follow that has already been proven to boost trading profits…
Help traders pick better stocks…
And cut down actual trading time so you can spend more time seeking success in other ventures.
I’d love to show you how it works…
