All this stuff might come off a tad bit corny. After all, isn’t this a website dedicated to stocks, trading, investing and candlesticks?
So a couple of things. Believe it or not; I too at some point concluded that having a “Daily Motivational” page is corny AF (azz *uck) but decided to go forth with it anyway.
As the main driving force behind this website, newsletter, 15th year confessions of a stock trader - whatever you want to call it - I’ve seen some things.
If you’ve taken a few minutes to peruse shortmetina.com, you’ll stumble on the fun fact that in my prior life I was a Therapist. I spent over 7 years formally studying human behavior and have some bad ass looking 8 x 11s (Bachelor of Arts & Master of Science) vouching for my competency.
WHAT IT DO?
I do crack myself up sometimes. “what it do” wasn’t the best segue but I am sure at this point, you are looking for my point! That is, my point in talking about daily motivations, stocks and my former life as a therapist.
WELL… HERE IT IS
I have realized - not that I ever tried to- I can’t run away from this innate passion that I have for understanding folks and why they do what they do.
Albeit, a bit older.. okay, much older... ...I am still that young curious girl that’s in a constant state of assessing.
The foundational mechanics to conduct a thorough assessment have not changed, I always start with, a “WHY?” but the context have. That is, I am no longer assessing folks to see if they have a mental health diagnosis but I find myself…
...assessing the Markets, assessing the players in the Markets, assessing why traders make the same mistakes over and over again, etc.
And while the answers to those questions are in its infancy stages; I believe there’s a psychological component that plays into your success (or lack thereof) as a trader/investor. This is super simplified and forgive me; as I am still in the infancy stage of finding out the “WHY’s”. But one common ‘truth’ I have found to be true is:
there is a correlative relationship between cognitive conditioning and outcomes.
Simply put, feed your mind with negative things (the minute I buy this stock it will crash), you’re bound to get negative outcomes (stock crashes). Feed your mind with positive things (I am a good trader) and you’re sure to get positive outcomes (you’ll trade well).
