I will follow a trading plan to guide my trading – therefore my job will be one of patience and discipline.
I will plan each trade carefully – I will not jump into trades by fear of missing out.
I will monitor the market’s current picture.
I will manage my trades to protect my capital and my profits.
I will protect my capital through good money management.
I will take responsibility for all my actions.
I will trade to trade well and for the love of trading, not to trade often and not for the money. The money will come as a result of trading well.
I will not be influenced by the opinions of others. I will reach my own decisions and follow them.
I will build the self-trust necessary to operate in an unlimited environment which has no rules.
I will be rigid in my rules and flexible in my expectations.
I will never think that taking money from the market is easy and I will never assume that I know enough.
I will treat trading as a probability game in which I don’t need to know what is going to happen next in order to make money. All I need to know is that the odds are in my favor before I enter a trade.
I believe that I deserve this money. I believe that I will have this money in my possession. My faith is so strong that I can now see this money before my eyes. I can touch it with my hands. It is now awaiting transfer into my account. I am awaiting a plan by which to accumulate this money, and I will follow that plan when it is received.
