Remembering Your 'Why'

Why are we trading?

“Why am I even doing this? Why do I bother?”

It happens to us all. Even in a business as exciting and challenging as trading, it’s normal to occasionally wonder why you are putting yourself through all this. Especially if your results aren’t quite where you want them to be.

It’s tough to stay motivated when you’re on a losing streak and the market just seems to know where your stops are! (I mean what sort of madman keeps getting back up to get knocked down again….?! )

I tend to believe you’re got to be a certain personality type to be involved in trading anyway. Driven, ambitious and not afraid of setbacks. So motivation isn’t usually a problem… But every now and then we need a little boost, a kick up the ‘you know what’ to shrug off the clouds and get back to business.

Today if you feel unmotivated try thinking about ‘why’ you are doing this. Think about your goal, your destination, and what would it mean to get there.

Trading is tough, you know it, and I know it. But keep putting one foot in front of the other and keep moving forwards. And keep that ‘why’ locked into your sights.
