Think about the important relationships in your life.
What are the greatest challenges and problems you experience in your relationships? What are your greatest weaknesses in your relationships?
Those are what you will repeat in your relationships with markets, and those are what will undermine your success.
What are your greatest relationship strengths and your most fulfilling relationship experiences?
Those are what will show up in your relationships with markets, and those are what will underpin your success.
Great things come from loving relationships; problems in relationships occur when we place our own egos and needs ahead of our love for our partners.
Ayn Rand pointed out that, before we can say “I love you”, we have to be able to have an “I”. No relationship can provide self-esteem where it is lacking in ourselves.
How would you trade if you had loving relationships with markets?
How would you trade if you expected relationships to provide you with your self-esteem?
How well would your relationships work out if you approached them the way you approach markets?
Knowledge is necessary for trading success, but it’s wisdom that unlocks that knowledge. Love is the key that unlocks.
