I believe my journey on self development actually start around when I was 17 or 18. I read “The Secret” and it really helped open my mind to being more open to the idea that the universe wants to give us everything we need, all we have to do is set our frequency to it and accept it and make decisions based on that. Then, I read the other books that have changed my life, “The Seat of the Soul” and “How to Win Friends and Influence People.”
These books all helped me trust in myself and understand that we have the power to change our lives. We can manifest anything we desire; we just have to get out of our own way and allow our inner being to accept the path we want and to guide us there.
These lessons have entered into every part of my life, to include my Forex Market strategy. The way I look at the market now is like the ocean. Follow me here:
You – Fisherman
Your bait – The money you invest
Your pole – The tools you use to invest
The water – The market
The fish – Your currency or indict investments
I love the ocean, and I love water. However, sometimes I want to go swimming, and other times, I’d rather stay dry. I don’t want to swim when I’m upset or emotional, it increases my possibility of drowning. Hence, I don’t trade when I’m emotional. The analogy of fishing applies as well. I love to fish. I wanted ultimately to learn how to swim or how to fish. I don’t want to watch other people swim and enjoy themselves, and I don’t want anyone to give me a fish. I want to fish myself. However, there are times I don’t want to fish. So, listen to your own needs. If your spirit is telling you to watch the market, then watch it. If you want to do something else, then do it! Don’t force yourself to do something that you don’t want to do. If you force it, it won’t be there.
This exact law of the universe can be demonstrated in two trades I lost recently. I was upset from an argument that I had with my brother. We shouldn’t have argued, but I decided in order to get my mind off of it (instead of dealing with it) that I would trade. Long story short, I drowned. I lost. I realized my emotional state had contributed to why I lost.
Don’t let your emotions cloud your spirit. There are always layers you can pull back and questions you can ask yourself in order to settle your mind. Just be more aware before you enter into trade.
Ultimately, based on how I’ve started to trade, I’m not looking at just understanding how the market moves. Why? Because the market is not numbers or data, the market is mentality and consciousness. The market is the collective consciousness of every person investing. It’s the representation of what we believe something is worth or not worth. That’s ultimately the market. The market mimics how people make decisions.
Once you get the rhythm of yourself, your soul and your life, you’ll start to better understand the market. Any decisions you make in the ocean, or the market, will build certainty. Then you can fish in perfect peace and know that you will be successful.
