Take Complete Responsibility

Take Complete Responsibility

Take Complete Responsibility for the successful trader knows every action he takes, every decision he makes he ,and only he, is responsible for that action. You will never meet a successful trader who is looking to blame someone else, or something else for the consequences of his results. It just will not happen

You see, when you accept 100%, no questions asked responsibility for all your actions you close the door to “excuses” behind you.

When something goes wrong instead of looking for someone else to shoulder the blame, you will accept responsibility, note it down and vow never to repeat it again. Simply, you are willing to accept you are going to make mistakes, but more importantly, you are going to learn and never repeat those mistakes. A vital component of any winning trader.


If you are a long term trend follower then why ask a day trader?

Take Complete Responsibility if you are a value investor then asking a momentum trader will be a total waste of time. What I am saying is, no two people have the same opinion. Why would you believe some-one else over your trading rules? It’s a fact of life, and even more so in trading, most people want to be told what to do rather than acting on their own. Yet this is a major reason most people fail in the markets. Either accept total responsibility for your trading action or do not trade at all.

If your number one rule is “to follow your rules” why will you need to ask a guru what they think of your position? If you EVER find your-self wanting to ask a third party about your position do the following:

* Close out your positions

* Review your plan and rules.

* Work out why you lack the responsibility to follow that plan

* When you are convinced you don’t need a third party opinion start trading again.

Take Complete Responsibility

How can a trader learn to accept total responsibility?

Have a set of rules and realize THE most important point in trading is following those rules. Once you have a set of firmly established rules you will find your-self not having to follow out-side opinion. In fact I go to great lengths not to listen to outside opinion. Simply because, I know by following my rules I will be on the right side of the market 95% of the time and I will never miss a big move. Those kind of figures are much better than any out-side source can give you.

So from today, learn to take total responsibility for all your trading decisions. Strive to develop and then religiously follow a set of trading rules, knowing it is the importance of following those rules that ultimately determines whether you will win or lose in the long run.
