The winners have attained a mind-set—a unique set of attitudes—that allows them to remain disciplined, focused, and, above all, confident in spite of the adverse conditions. As a result, they are no longer susceptible to the common fears and trading errors that plague everyone else.
If there is such a thing as a secret to the nature of trading, this is it: At the very core of one’s ability
1) to trade without fear or overconfidence,
2) perceive what the market is offering from its perspective,
3) stay completely focused in the “now moment opportunity flow,” and
4) spontaneously enter the “zone,” it is a strong virtually unshakeable belief in an uncertain outcome with an edge in your favor.
