What’s going on everybody this is Floogiel Trader Jeff, author of the book trading part-time and welcome to trader
talk with Jeff. I want to start this video off by a quote from Mark Twain
Mark Twain said courage is resistance to fear courage is mastery of fear but
courage is not the absence of fear see I really like that quote and we can relate
that to training courage in trading is not resistance to fear it is ok to be
fearful when you’re just starting to trade heck when I was learning to trade
I was scared to death scared to death ok but courage is not resistance to fear
you have to have the courage in yourself that you can do this business ok it is
ok to be fearful ok courage is mastery of fear ok take on your fears and face
them anyway if you’re scared about jumping into the pond of the stock
market do it anyway have courage courage is mastery of fear so courage in trading
is resistance to fear courage in trading is mastery of fear a courage is not the
absence of fear it is ok to be fearful a courage is not the absence of fear you
need to have courage and belief in yourself that you can do this business
anybody can do this business as long as you put in the work you have the
coaching you have the mentorship and you show up every day you can do this
courage is not the absence of fear courage is just showing up and
understanding that this skill it is a process you will not master it right
away you will wake up and be scared to death every day you will be afraid am I
gonna lose today oh my god I don’t want to lose my money you will be afraid but
that’s okay do it anyway okay you must resist fear
okay resist the fear now when I say resist
fear what I mean is resist the fear of not trying okay resist the fear of not
try you’re scared and you haven’t started your trading career start try
and understand that it is just part of the learning process okay so I really
love that quote when it comes to courage and hopefully some of you out there who
are watching this trader talk video right now you’re scared to start that’s
normal okay but do it anyway have the courage
in yourself that you can do it when I started this business almost ten years
ago I had no clue Brian Tracy said everybody
who is in the top 5% was once in the bottom 5% and they have any prior to
that they weren’t even in the business okay so the top 5% was once in the
bottom 5% and once was not even in the business it just takes time to master
okay it just takes time and courage and belief in yourself that you can do it
you can’t change your life you have the power to change your life you can do it
and this skill in this business if you get great at it it can change your life
change your life okay so have courage today do the thing and you shall have
the power all right everybody I’m Floogiel Trader
