This is how I turn one mistake into a series of losses (not to mention the lost opportunities). This thinking pattern caused all my shit decisions. How can I fix it? Can I fix it? Why do I do it over and over again even though I know that this not being able to let go of making a mistake is the root of so many difficulties?
This is why my trading goals need to be behavioural and my next ones are:
- Switch the screen off after Protrader.
- Release on losses and begin visualising better behaviour (start small – just visualise taking the whole trade off at the TP, or seeing PA against me and taking the trade off – and the tiny actions will build)
btw: ‘goal’ is a good word to use here.
