A theme I have seen w/ some of my high-level college & pro clients lately is the difficulty they are having letting go of #mistakes. Perhaps it's due to time off from the pandemic & increased pressure they are feeling? Regardless, here are some thoughts on overcoming it. [THREAD]
It's natural to dwell on a mistake. Doing this for too long, though, can lead to more mistakes. Suddenly, instead of 1 error, you now have made 3. This can lead to frustration, anger, and decreased confidence. It also takes our focus out of the present & into the past or future.
Naturally, a place where a sport psychologist will start, then, is to bring the focus back into the present. After all, we can't change the past or control the future. Some common ways to do this are by focusing on breathing or using focal points.

For two months we've been feted with snarky Jabs noting #typographical and #othererrors in #electionchallenge lawsuits.

You know, #mistakes?
What wasn't a mistake?

It wasn't a #mistake when @TheJusticeDept told a federal court that there were plans to capture and kill members of Congress during the incident at Capitol Hill.
That wasn't a "spacebar" instead of a "comma."

That was a process:

examine evidence
review charging standards
frame thought
formulate words
enter words on keyboard.

This was a whole freaking sentence filled with words; words filled with meaning; meaning expressing intent.

I know it's gotten fashionable to #blame others for our #emotions because self #responsibility is difficult and people have been taught to avoid what is difficult.

But self #responsibility is EXACTLY the perfect level of #difficult because it's an equal opportunity difficulty; none of us are without flaws or errors or #mistakes and we've ALL been wronged (on some level) by something.

Self responsibility is SO important, that the 12 Steps (of #AlcoholicsAnonymous, #NarcoticsAnonymous, #AlAnon, #Codependent recovery, etc.) is BASED on it.

To be sober, for example, I had/have to take responsibility for the parts of my life that I was/am responsible for.

#Traders path #Futures & #Options

1: Understanding the game

Trading is not much different from playing poker game or betting on various other things.

It’s just a structured game where rules are not made by anyone, but needs to be followed by everyone in game.
Understanding those rules and adjusting yourself is a continuous process which will never end. As #SEBI would keep on changing rules.

The important thing to understand is any thing in life if we want to succeed we need patience and dedication.
A 2 hour webinar or 2 day course can’t teach you about #CapitalMarkets or #Trading it’s impossible.

Personally i feel have around 40-50% knowledge about capital markets after more than 12years of trading experience.

Thread on trading lessons & mistakes:

I always keep my mistakes & lessons learnt in front of my screen while trading.
Bcz we as traders tend to commit the same mistakes everytime.

So seeing your learnt lessons everyday ensures that you avoid them.

In 2017, I analysed all my trades and saw that I have majorly lost in stock futures and profits came only via index trading.

I accepted that I am not great at stock trading and been trading index only majorly since then.

(2)
I decided to adjust all of my past losses to 1 % of capital to see what the effect of capping the downside.
I would have had a gain of more than 230 % if I had capped losses at 1% of cap.

Lesson: Keep losses less than 1% of capital

But still sometimes losses are >1 R😓

Born & raised in #Fanar #Lebanon, a tiny country in the middle east with a lot to offer. I always had a positive outlook on life maybe because of the culture or values🤷‍♀️.
If you don't know #Lebanon or a #lebanese then you should start mingling 🤣
@IWS_Network #VoicesIWS
I grew up surrounded by a loving, joking & tough type of family that always support each other even amidst fighting. You can imaging being 4 kids in different age groups can cause a lot of fights growing up 😂 #siblingsfight #family #VoicesIWS
@IWS_Network
I have my issues🤷‍♀️! I always wanted to prove myself & make my family proud(2nd child). A pressure that was just in my head; they were always proud of us. I wanted to grow up to be a doctor or an army officer like my dad. Let's just say I changed my mind! #VoicesIWS @IWS_Network

Except you don't have the consciousness to do that- only what you've, perhaps, been programmed to register, process, or maybe transmit/emit. Here in #Ireland on the other hand there are 💚s everywhere hoping to #repealthe8th #LISTENUP #Focus on #Caring #Now to ensure #legislation
