The Teacher Becomes The Student

Today I had the opportunity to do something that i haven’t done in a very long time. That is, sitting back & scrolling through price charts a single candlestick at a time. I know you were probably expecting a much more entertaining answer, but what can i say, i’m a trading nerd & I’m extremely passionate about my career.

Being sick all week has provided me with a lot of down time since i’m unable to work out & unable to record new training material. I did release two new Trading Blog videos this week, but both featured only recorded footage from my Live Trading Room session.

So with this extra time I decided to do something that I typically push to the back and that is work on MY trading. I love coaching to death, but one of it’s downfalls is that you spend so much time working with others that your forget to work on yourself. And in trading, staying sharp is often then difference between a winning and losing day.

I’m not sure how yet, but I need to implement more ME time into my normal trading routine & more importantly STICK WITH IT. I don’t have dreams of becoming the BEST trader, but each day I do want to become a BETTER trader.

Thanks for taking the time to read my words & if you enjoyed it, I’d appreciate it if you hit that heart button below ❤
