Here ya go, some more inspiration:

D70: "I've got an excel sheet of my trades from £483 (starting capital) to ~£150,000 over from '07 to '09. (Personal account rather than work account)."

and

aliasentric: "If you believe it when everyone says it will take you 5+ years to become profitable, then it sure will take you that long. Or longer.

If I believed everyone who says it will take me many years to become profitable, I would have never started trading to begin with. I determined how long it was going to take ME to become profitable. What you believe is possible, you will achieve. What you do not believe is possible, you will not achieve. I think this has been said before, but I haven't heard it applied to trading.

Many knowledgeable traders share their knowledge. It's all over the internet. I appreciate it, since I have learned from what other successful traders have shared FOR FREE. The trick is to learn what will work consistently. AND what will work consistently for YOU.

I have found in my experience, majority of voices in the trading world did not point me in the right direction to become successful. But they did give me enough information for me to point myself in the right direction.

Do you want to make a stable income from trading? Identify what is preventing you from achieving this goal. Pinpoint each problem that recurs. Then research ways to fix each problem. Keep making adjustments until you eliminate the problem, or at least until it's not killing you any more.

If you cannot solve the problems with your trading style, then perhaps you need to change your trading style?

I could go on and on about all of the "assumptions" most traders make, that will make you think it will take way longer than it needs to. For example, some successful traders are celebrating that they can double their account in a year. Not saying this is not successful. But unless you have a whole lot of money to start with, it's not going to give you a stable income any time soon. You determine how much you NEED to increase your account in order to live on the gains, and how long it will take you to do it, AND what you will need to do to reach that goal every week/month. You've got to be goal oriented.

So, how long will it take to make a stable income from trading? How long YOU think it will take you is the most likely answer to this question."


Some people have an uncanny knack for getting things the wrong way round.

You won't be happy, if you aren't now, once you have the house, the car, the yacht, the dream partner.

First you have to be happy, then the rest comes along.

Same goes for goals, they are an extremely important driver of what does or doesn't happen in your life.

If you don't know what you want or where you want to go you'll likely end up in a place you never wanted to be, and that may not smell of roses.

Your eldest Terrie must have had an inherent understanding of all that, which is why he went out there and won the European championship.

Dunno how many Market Wizards - Jack Schwager included - increased their trading stakes tenfold in one year which with the magic of compounding comes out at roundabout 20% / month account growth.

While there may be certain members here - currently sin binned out to pasture - sniffing at that, but by contrast to certain allegations made from that general direction these kinda returns are achievable.

:LOL:

You just need a clear cut business plan with very specific objectives, how many percent you want to achieve per year, month, week, and what you need to do on average on a daily basis to get there.

That's the absolute starting point and basis for success.

oooo i love spread sheets (pm'd you), i try to do one as i go along, great for motivation and focus!!

I admit i was a very hard task master with Chris when he was younger, every time he wanted to quit, i kicked his ass back to the gym.
he finally moved to london when he was 18 to train at the best club in the country. he worked as a security guard and paid his own way +22 hours of training a week. his goal was the worlds but that didnt happen due to an old back injury his partner had. but hes doing well now and producing little champion gymnasts at his club!! he was also pig sick of being poor!!

luckily i am not one for lavish things, never had any. but it would be nice to have a safe car and a house where no one can dictate if i have a dog or not!!! :LOL:

goals are good but without a vision of what you want your life to be, goals can fall by the wayside or be altered!!

Agree that keeping track of ones trades in a journal or via spreadsheets etc (the latter not my forte I'm afraid haha) can work educational miracles, particularly when trading results aren't quite where you want them to be yet.

For Chris I think that's really great what you and he did, he will always have the mental strength he needed to succeed to the point of wining the European championship.

Lol !

Youtube telling me I'm not allowed to look at that video in Germany because of music copyright issues.

:LOL::LOL::LOL:

Btw, had a think about good ole J and his how do I go about meeting a girl thread.

Good analogy to trading actually.

Not the hardest thing figuring out what buttons need to be pushed.

It's the pushing that as often as not comes between hope and result.

If ya need drugs to trade profitably then smoke a joint before you start the day.

Hey, Paul McCartney did that every single day of his life and it didn't cause him any harm exactly.

If you need a drink to chat up a girl (or boy, or friendly dog in the park) then go and do that.

I've been told I live off of air and beer (ok and wine too haha) and I'm not exactly the worst advertisement for that kinda lifestyle.

Ya need to do what ya need to do.

But, do it.
