My present to you

Merry Christmas

Today I want to talk to you about something that might not seem as important as you think it is on your results as a trader, but it really is…

So stick with me ok?

This time of the year is always a good time to think about the way we have done things. And I mean in every aspect of life: family, friends, trading, sports, etc. Everything… If you are not thinking about it, it might be a good idea start thinking about it…

Anyway, sometimes we don’t do things the way they are supposed to be done, for instance, we don’t spend as much time with our family as we/they would really want/need or say that thing that we always wanted to say but for some reason or the other we haven’t done so… That sort of things you know.

When we don’t do things the way they are supposed to be done, there is a feeling that most of us cant get rid of: guilt!

Now, when we feel guilty about something, we tend to think that we don’t deserve any kind of “goodness”.

And here is when we start self-sabotaging ourselves.

Now, you might not be aware of this because sometimes this kind of things happen at a subconscious level, so there is only one thing that we can do…

As I already said, this is a good time of the year to think about things, but it is also a good time of the year to fix things.

This time of the year is the perfect excuse to put everything together, and say that thing that you always wanted to say, etc.

And you will not only fix your relationships, etc. But your professional life (including trading) will reach new highs!

So what are you waiting for… go for it because I’m sure that 2014 will be our year!

I wish you and your loved ones a Merry Christmas and very Happy New Year!

Hey Raul… where is my present?

I’m going to be a little late with this, I’m going to share my complete analysis and signals for a whole week with you the second or the third week of January.

It wouldn’t make sense to share it with you right now because I know you (and I) aren’t monitoring the market as we normally do…

So stay tuned alright?

    thanks Raul for all the tutoring in 2013. Hitting the self destruct button due to feeling bad about oneself is an ever present risk – for a holiday read try the Valkyries by Paulo Coelho. All the best for 2014.
